Oil change in Atlanta

We are looking for a place to get our oil changed in Atlanta or nearby (Gwinnett/Lawrenceville/Loganville area) because we are not doing it ourselves.

We contacted the Ford Commercial Vehicle Center because we’ve seen post saying they can refer you to Ford dealers than can accommodate RVs. They referred us to four dealers and Peach State Ford is the only one that could handle our 32’ RV and they quoted $150 + materials for an oil change.

Is this the average rate in Atlanta or has anyone used another place in the area? We are not changing the oil ourselves, so we are just looking for additional options. We have a gas Sunseeker 3010DS.

Wow

That is highway robbery. It costs me $35 in material. You know dealers are not paying as much as the normal consumer. I asked a local ford dealer last year how much and he quoted me $115 which I thought was to much. At $150 that dealer wouldn't get my business.

Wow! That seems high! I haven’t looked to see what you have but I can’t imagine your V10 being that much different than mine. I had mine serviced in Florida and everything totaled about $60. This did not include the genny.

Call Krause Family Ford (formerly named Cherokee Ford) in Woodstock at 770-592-0090 and talk to their service department. See Here They have done oil changes on my motor homes in the past for around $50 to $60.

We are south of Atlanta and our regular mechanic charges no mor than for our car and truck. Although I think he should. However when we have been on the road, we have used Jiffy Lube several times and they do just fine and are very reasonable. They usually have higher bay doors also.

We had our 3010DS oil and filter done at our Ford dealer here in Iowa for $75.00, (including a tire rotation).

We have used Snellville Auto Center for several years for oil change on our 30' Forest River Georgetown MH as well as other vehicles. They work on buses, larger vans, etc. They are very reasonable, professional, and personable. Voted "best in Gwinnett" 2013-2017. Located on HWY 78, phone #770-972-3799.

Rush Truck Center in Oklahoma City is $100. Check there for one. Also check Penske Truck Center, the tow truck driver when he towed my MH recommended them.

Oil Change

I also would recommend Snellville Auto Center for any of your needs. I have been using them for approx. 30 years. They not only do my personal vehicles but also any vehicles I maintain for our church, which at one time included a 60 passenger bus. Very honest and trustworthy.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
