Oil Change Service

Your car has a lot of responsibilities. It takes you to work; it takes the kids to school; and it can’t be late for soccer practice or the orthodontist. Most importantly, it has to do all these things, and many more, while keeping you and your family safe. At Bill’s Friendly Auto Service, we’re committed to maintaining the safety and reliability of your car. In fact, our mechanics are trained to perform factory-recommended maintenance services for most vehicles.

Our oil change service uses the factory-recommended viscosity grade. Then we perform a visual check of your vehicle’s major systems: engine, transmission, brakes, steering, starting and charging, heating and cooling, and lighting. When your car rolls off our lift, you can be confident it will be safe and reliable.

Questions? Bill’s Has Answers

Q: I want to make sure I’m covered under my car manufacturer’s warranty, do I have to go to the dealer for scheduled maintenance to be covered?

A: Not necessarily. Most automobile warranties require that you comply with the factory-recommended maintenance schedule to keep the warranty in force. However, depending on the terms of the warranty, you do not always have to go to the dealers to get the maintenance work done. Bill’s Friendly Auto Service has the factory-recommended maintenance schedule for almost every vehicle. Just stop by, we’ll be happy to review it with you.

Q: I want to hang onto my ’99 Honda for as long as possible (it’s paid for), but hate to waste money on service it doesn’t really need. How can I be sure I am performing only the maintenance my car truly requires?

A: The proper way to determine what service your car needs is with a thorough mechanical inspection. At Bill’s Friendly Auto Service, we perform the necessary inspection so that you can be confident your car receives only the service it requires, and nothing else. Furthermore, we believe in following the factory-recommended maintenance schedule. Proper routine maintenance helps keep your car safe and fuel-efficient. And without it, you risk costly repairs or even a breakdown. When in doubt, just stop by our shop – and ask about your car’s factory-recommended maintenance schedule.

Q: Air filters, engine oil weight, brake fluid, coolant, and tire wear. How am I supposed to keep this stuff straight, much less keep up with what needs to be checked and when?

A: The good news is you don’t have to, thanks to Bill’s Friendly Auto Service. Bill’s will help you stay up-to-date with your vehicle’s factory-recommended maintenance schedule.
