Always nice to visit your auto mechanic for a simple oil-change.... as opposed to a tranny overhaul. Have both tee-shirts... this trip was the former- and all was handled wonderfully, thoroughly, and in a timely manner. Almost caught it right, where i could wait, but not quite this trip- so opted to leave the car. Was immediately offered a ride home!
Next was the courtesy call that it was ready... early! Upon arriving for pick up, the service *and* full inspection sheet was presented & reviewed, important items noted. Example: we will NOW know to replace the car's aging battery before winter's cold-starts kill it. Far better than the typical & oft-tried method of no-workie this morning, now you're gonna be late for your appointment! Or worse- getting a super-pricy battery delivered & installed on the shoulder of I-5 between hither & thither... in the rain. At night. On the way to Christmas at grandma's.
Seriously nice to have someone knowledgeable & experienced looking out for your family's automotive interests!
