"We're The Shop That Cares!" - An Open Letter

  We are the best automotive repair shop in Queens, New York. Bold statement?

I'm not talking about what features we offer and we do offer a great many features such as our nationwide 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty and ASE certified technicians. These are certainly a benefit to our clients however its definitely not enough put us head and shoulders above other shops. It has been a struggle to put into words on exactly why we are the best auto repair shop but it recently dawned on me after being a "customer".

Why do we offer a “cheap” oil change?

Why do we offer a “cheap” oil change?

          When you look at our introductory oil change offer you might immediately think, “hmmm… why so cheap?” To be 100% transparent we don’t believe in offering a “cheap” oil change and we would never compromise our ethics to do so! Now you're probably really confused so let me explain.       At Essential Auto Care we don’t perform oil changes, we perform an oil service for our clients. An oil service consists of an ASE certified technician performing a courtesy vehicle inspection where he checks the vehicle’s brake system, tires, suspension, steering, on board electronics, warning lights, wipers, and any minor or major services the vehicle may need. This is like having a check up by your doctor. This is performed along with a quality oil and filter replacement. It is absolutely the most important service we can provide our clients. While other outfits might want to rush you i ... read more
