There are some tidbits of worldly advice, adages, maxims, etc. that we retain from childhood. Some of my favorites include:
- Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react,
- Close the door. What do you live in a barn?
- A watched pot never boils, and
- Change your oil every 3,000 miles or else.
These have been guiding principles for me, which may explain more than a thing or two. The first three seem to hold up to today’s modern, macabre, digital dreamworld; however, the 3,000-mile oil change is now a relic of simpler times.
With the latest engine technologies, it is no longer necessary to change the oil every 3,000 miles, 5,000 miles, or even 7,000 miles. Some vehicles can go 10,000 miles before an oil change. This is great for the convenience of the driver as well as the environment.
But with the increase in mileage, there can be a lost connection to a dealership, mechanic, chain, or another local shop when it comes to getting an Oil Change in Boston.
There are many chains such as Meineke and Jiffy Lube that can handle your oil change rapidly and get you on the road cheaply. But there is something impersonal that reminds me of waiting for deli meat with a paper ticket in hand with no free sample at the end of the line.
There are many modern facilities in the Boston area. From the Kellys, Herb Chambers, Quirks, and IRAs of the world, we have certainly had no shortage of large, modern, expensive dealerships in Boston, MA. These dealerships and many others like them do an excellent job at providing modern amenities and expensive lounges that cater to a certain clientele.
But, to me, a good oil change is something more than bricks, mortar, and tile. It is about longevity, reputation, standing in the community, history, and people. That is why one of my favorite places for an oil change in Boston is Muzi Ford.
This is where your father and grandfather had their oil changed, and it still maintains that nostalgic heir. The dealership has been family owned and operated in Needham, MA since 1932, and the people there are great. Muzi is Boston. They still call this place “Muzi Ford City” I mean check this place out:
So that is my vote for the best oil change in Boston. I know there are many other places to get an oil change, but this is my favorite. If you are in the Boston area and need of an oil change swing by Muzi Ford you won’t regret it.
