Can anybody recommend a place in Summerville or Ladson to get an Oil change/Tune up w/o getting ripped off. I used to have a friend back home who had his own garage do it for me but he is now too far away. I cannot do it myself so I just want it done without getting shafted. I read bad things about Speedee and Jiffy Lube in Summerville. Anybody know about the Firestone on Old Trolley?

I actually went to the SpeeDee in Summerville on N. Main for an oil change recently and had felt sorta iffy about it as well, but their prices were very affordable and for the basic oil change and stuff, they did a fine job. However, I also heard that Gerald's (any of the locations) are good for just about everything. Hope that helps!

If I don't change my oil I take it to the Walmart on Main St, for Tune ups that depends on what year cay/truck you are talking about but the Tread Quarters on Main has a decent rep too...

For newer cars, tune-ups are a thing of the past. I use SpeeDee on Main St. too. I have also used Precision Tune on Trolley. Please stay away from Midas on Trolley for anything but mufflers and oil changes.

SpeeDee is pretty reliable. I was actually impressed with how efficient and clean they were, for a reasonable price. If you're looking for an independent place, try Flawless Automotive on Central Ave (just before Butternut Ave., across from Central Veterinary Clinic). Very dependable garage, very honest, very decent prices. Jim is the owner. Great guy!

AAMCO on Trolley has been good to us. Gerald's is also a great place, but they don;t do all repairs. I usually go to Walmart on Dorchester for oil changes. Never a problem. Stay away from Precision Auto on Trolley.
