I got an oil change there the other day and low and behold they found some other upcharges that my 3 year old truck should have. You see, they have this little scam they run called "upselling the job" A woman in there was nearly in tears because they told her she needed a lot "EXTRA" parts and repairs and she didn't know how she was going to pay for all of this because she only came in for an oil change. I am a factory certified mechanic so I get a lot of friends and family calling me for mechanical advice. I don't know how many times people they have called from outside of J & R asking if they really need to do these repairs. My advice to anyone who is being taken advantage of by these scammers is to get a second opinion and then call the Better Business Bureau.

Be very sceptical if you take a vehicle there. Always get a second opinion!!

If your a certified mechanic, why are you paying someone else to do your oil change?

I would'nt trust them to wash my car not alone work on it. Learned that years ago. Huge scam and the funny part is he is still in business and there is still people dumb enough to go to him.
