The Myth of the $19.99 Oil Change

by | Aug 6, 2014 | Auto Tips, Preventative Maintenance

Have you ever gotten an oil change for $19.99 or less?  How much do you think the value of that oil service really was?

We did an infographic on the value of an oil change.  The bottom line is, when you receive any product or service for less than its value, someone is paying for it.  It can be that the business is covering the cost and using the product or service as a loss leader to get you into their establishment –hoping they can get you to purchase more goods or services.  It can also be that the workers there are paying the price through low wages.

Take a look at our infographic.  Let us know what you think.
