jiffy-lube-shop

JLI is the largest franchise automotive service center system in America with over 250 franchise entities running their shops. Unlike many competitors, every one of their shops are run by these franchisees. The company is known for having low prices while still providing top quality products and services.

JLI Services

Along with fast oil changes, Jiffy Lube offers inspections, preventative maintenance and cleaning of engine parts. They frequently run specials and offer coupons, making their services even more affordable. When owners bring in their vehicle to a franchised shop for service, the vehicle undergoes a complete check-up including exterior lights, engine filters and coolant level. The standard oil change prices they quote in their advertisements include up to 5 quarts of oil.

Other services offered include checking and filling the power steering fluid reservoir, transfer case fluid, differential fluid, transmission fluid and battery electrolyte. When having a car serviced, the vehicle will also have its windows cleaned and the interior carpet vacuumed.

Preventative Maintenance Services

JLI also offers maintenance-related services including the servicing of belts, filters, air conditioners and brakes. Their shops can also do state inspections and emissions testing in locations where this is required, as well as windshield repair and both transmission and cooling system service. Alongside these standard maintenance services, these shops also offer more advanced inspections of drivetrain, electrical and fuel system components.

Certified Professional Technicians

JLI employs over 20,000 highly skilled professional technicians to work in their service centers across the U.S. The company has their own internal training program called “Jiffy Lube University” (JLU) that all technicians must pass before they can work in their shops. This training includes technical proficiency and computer-based training followed by on-the-job training with supervision by experienced technicians. This program is highly regarded, and the company has even been cited by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) as an Accredited Training Provider.

History of the Company

Jiffy Lube may be known for low prices, but since its foundation, the company has been principally driven by innovation. Founded in 1971 by Edwin Washburn in Ogden, Utah, the success of the first shop led to the creation of a franchise system that spread across the country.

By the time JLI went public in 1987, the company had expanded to over 1,000 franchises, and then reached 1,500 locations in the 90s. Expansion continues, cementing its place as one of the biggest service providers in America.

  1. Our first and last Jiffy Lube. We didn’t want to pay over $100 for an oil change.
    I asked if they had any specials or coupons. They did. So they told us we got a mid grade oil change and told it’d be $59. Okay fine. Another employee told us the order was $79+. I told her we were told it was going to be $20 cheaper. She told us there’s tax and disposal fee, etc. I was P.O
    BUT when we paid for it it’s a little over $62! WTH? I’m not complaining about the final price although I thought it’s an expensive but it’s a quick job that’s what you pay for.
    My issue was the incompetence of the employees when not communicating & understanding customers questions & statements.
    Like I said it’s the first & last time at Jiffy Lube

  2. My wife just took our jeep in to Edmonton to get the oil changed. She could not get the employees to stop harassing her about everything being wrong from the rear diff fluid To the air filter. She got an oil change and replaced the air filter for 180 dollars. I would not recommend jiffy lube to anyone. When she gets home from Edmonton and I get the receipt I will also be calling the manager. Never has she got ripped off and harrassed this much by any other oil change company

  3. July 23,2019 Jiffy Lube at 347 Russell St. Hadley MA.
    Spoke with employee told him my car manual says to use
    5W-30 & 10W-30 Pennzoil $45
    Another employee shows coices on computer – went with
    cheaper of 2 options $84.99 Signature Service Blend
    Penzoil Platinum (Full Synthetic) but didn’t observe actual change
    of oil,so cannot even say if provided said product.
    This is a rip-off. Avoid Jiffy lube at all costs

  4. I just had an oil change at jiffy
    Line on university drive and 595 in Davie Fl. Having gotten many oil changes at jiffy in the past but not at this location, I just gave it to the guy outside to bring in. They charges 104.00 for a synthetic oil change. NUEVO in my
    Life have I paid that much for an oil change. Even at other jiffy
    Line locations. Needless to say I will post my review of this location everywhere I can so as to warn others to go elsewhere before getting ripped off here. Never again will I use jiffy for any car needs.
