buyer beware, I am retired from the auto industry, a few things you the consumer need to know
1. all chain or multi store operations train their sales people to upsell.
2. when you see an ad for low price brake job oil change or tires they
are trained to sell you something"better"
3. If the sales person sells the advertised product they are called out on it and reprimanded
4. franchise stores such as midas and jiffy lube pay about 15% in franchise fees.
they have to make that up somehow, so when you go for the cheap oil change they always try to sell you something. a big one is dirty air filter. all air filters are dirty, they collect dirt!

so beware and be careful privately owned places are your best bet.
