Default Best place for oil change?

I have a new 2014 Honda and it needs it's first oil change. I'd like to find somewhere close to The Villages instead of going to the Honda dealership.

Tri-County Automotive on 441/27 is very good. We took both our Acura and a PT Cruiser there for regular service.

Wildwood Tire on 44, about 1.5 miles west of Brownwood on the south side of the road. We've had them do oil changes, minor repairs and purchased new tires there. They are friendly, honest people and charge fair prices.

That car probably takes 0W-20 oil. Make sure they put the right oil in.

I've used Walmart on 441 And on 466 and both have been good, fair and honest. No up selling and timely service.

I went to the Good Year on 441 for an $18 oil change. After two hours they called me to the service desk and said my rear wiper was cut, the air filter was black and my power steering fluid was also black and needed to be flushed for $139. I said just change the oil. I changed the air filter for $12 the rear wiper was ok and the power steeling fluid was clear clean and red. This car has 40,000 miles on it. I have never seen power steering turn black on any car I have ever worked on. One time I was in a Firestone shop for an oil change and they said I had black transmission fluid so they said they would flush it and change the filter. I told them they never checked my transmission our they would know it was a 5 speed stick shift. Watch your back side with these guys.
