Default Auto Maintenance Recommendation

I would like to recommend Accurso Automobile Repair, 352 748-9004, 11615 CR 108, Oxford Fl. (located back to back to Bargains & Treasures), for your auto maintenance needs. I moved to the Villages/Linden September 2020 and did not know where to go for routine maintenance on my auto. I was recommended Accurso for an oil change I needed. The Villager who recommended Accurso noted this was a local family owned business, christian with high morals. They were right!! I am a female and had an appointment on 1/14/20 1:00 for an oil change, When I called they were very professional providing directions and information concerning my oil change: they would be using Amsoil synthetic oil, they only use synthetic oil, (this gives 4500 miles or 6 month till next oil change) includes Change oil & filter, lube on steering linkage, ball joints and Drive Shaft, check & correct all fluid levels to include brake fluid and check tire pressures. I was taken promptly at 1 and waited apx. 25 min until completed, had I known I could walk apx 100-150 feet to Bargains & Treasures I would have browsed there during my wait. When the auto was done & I was going to pay the bill the gentleman asked if I was a AAA member & to remind them every time for the discount. My bill came to $42.69 which included tax & AAA discount. I am very pleased and know I will be back for my Car needs.

+++++ to Accurso as well. Our MB has 23K miles, have always had Mobil1 Synth for previous oil changes (2...). Went to Accurso a couple months ago - SPECIFICALLY because they use Amsoil. I have heard much about Amsoil...the BEST lubricants. Very comforted using Accurso, and Amsoil.

I've not had the oil changed there on my Ford CMAX. I'll go this week and will let you know. The CMAX will be fine on regular oil.
