I'm not a big fan of maintenance up keep on my car.  In fact when it comes to anything involving my car I do not like dealing with it.  One of the reasons is a lot of people tend to take advantage of a woman because they don't have a ton of knowledge on the workings of a vehicle.  So when it comes to automotive needs I try to avoid it as much as possible.  However, a trip to Jiffy Lube changed my mind.

As you probably know I was on vacation the last couple of days and I knew that my oil needed to be changed before I made the drive to see my dad.  So after work last Wednesday before I left town I ran by my local Jiffy Lube at 4322 SW 45th.  I know in the moment I pulled up I was lucky because that place is always busy.  It was after 5pm and the rush home drive was in full effect.  But as luck would have it, they had just finished with a few cars and I was up next.

I pulled up around back and was greeted by a very nice gentlemen who kindly asked what I needed.  They pulled my car in and got to work.  I had Ethan with me so I wasn't looking forward to the wait to get my oil changed.

Once inside the waiting room, they offered us a drink.  Then they took a look at the car and asked me a few questions.  What kind of oil did I want, did I want my transmission fluids flushed, etc.  Yes they did ask if I wanted extra services, however, they were not pushy, they were just doing their job.  I opted for their Signature Service Oil Change.

They did the following to my car:

Oil with up to five (5) quarts of quality motor oil
Oil filter


Brake fluid level (in transparent reservoirs)
Serpentine belts
Wiper blades
Antifreeze/coolant reservoir levels
Engine air filtration system
Exterior lights
Chassis (lubricate when applicable)
Tire pressure
and multiple vital fluids:
Transmission/transaxle fluid
Differential fluid
Transfer case fluid
Power steering fluid
Windshield washer fluid
Battery water (excluding sealed batteries)


Exterior windows
Vacuum interior floors

At one point I looked out and saw three technicians working on my car.  THREE!  I was super excited.  In no time, I was checking out.  I was probably in there a total of 15 minutes from start to finish.  I was expecting at least 30 if not 45 minutes so I was surprised when I was hopping into my vehicle.

Ethan looked at me and said "Momma, I didn't even get into my movie."  I said, "they were fast."  He said, "super fast like Superman."

I will say they were the most polite gentlemen I have ever had the privilege of working on my vehicle.  They actually opened my car door and shut it for me once I was in my car.

Another thing I wanted to note is I asked them not to mess with a specific part on the car because it was broken and they stayed away from it.

So ladies if you are looking for a perfect place to get your oil changed and that won't treat you like a woman who knows nothing about cars, stop by Jiffy Lube, especially the one at 4322 SW 45th.

Tell Cliff, Jeff and Ryan I said hello!
