Can I use a quick lube facility?
While you could use a quick lube faciltiy for an oil change, there are many reasons not to. Most european manufacturers are very specific about the oil specification, and in some cases, oil filters and filter material, to be used in their vehicles. The technicians at Foreign Autohäus of El Dorado Hills are trained to know exactly what oil should be used for each marque. Additionally, there are other benefits to using our services instead of a quick lube facility. Our technicians will take the time to make sure all of your fluids are topped off, and will do a cursory check of the vehicle to alert you of any concerns that may be starting to manifest. At a quick lube facility, their objective is to move as many cars through as they can on a daily basis. All they are performing is an oil change, and if you're lucky, topping off of the other fluids. They don't have the expertise or time to spot a potential problem arising.
