Throughout our 42-year history, our unique oil change process has provided our customers the quickest oil change around, while providing the highest quality service and premium vehicle maintenance checks in a single location to create a truly rare one-stop shop for automotive repair and maintenance.

Industry Performance

Market Demand & Advantage

Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers stands out in an industry that continues to grow because of our proven formula for success. The average age of cars and light trucks on American roads is now 11.4 years. People are keeping their cars longer for economic reasons, and vehicles are built better giving them a longer life, which leads to more repairs to keep them on the road. Our full-service repair and maintenance ability makes us a convenient resource to make those repairs, where other quick oil change competitors cannot. Our business model is unique in the U.S. and we believe the most successful model in the automotive industry because we offer a 10-minute oil change while the customer relaxes in his or her car, and our stores also have industry certified mechanics who can repair the most common problems with vehicles, and, we carry a full line of top brand name tires. Customers can come to Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers for all their auto maintenance and repair needs, making us a true one-stop-shop.
