Experience Michigan's Best Oil Change right here in Kalamazoo. Conveniently located on North Drake Road, just off W Main Street M-43 (just three miles from Miller Auditorium of Western Michigan University), our friendly and knowledgeable technician staff will service your car, truck, or van with a fast and professional oil and oil filter change. But that's only the beginning!

In addition we provide a thorough 19-point inspection with advice on the condition of your vehicle. We will check your car's fluids and if they are low, we can top them off. As an added courtesy we set your tire pressure, check your exterior lights, inspect the wiper blades and hand wash the windshield. All in just 10-15 minutes!







Our Drake Road location is a full-service location, meaning we can perform additional preventative maintenance services such as transmission fluid and radiator flushes, help increase gas mileage with our engine additives and treatments, and install or replace air filters, wiper blades, and bulbs.







Our service doesn't stop once you leave! As a valued customer you receive our free fluid and tire check in between oil changes - a $25 value yours free to use as many times as you’d like!

Brandon – Kalamazoo, MI 5/30/2019 Ty, Grant, and Matt are awesome. Sad Gregorio wasn't there. These guys need to be paid better for how hard they work.

Tayler – Bloomingdale, MI 5/26/2019 The manager and technicians were very friendly and easy to talk to.

Eric – Kalamazoo, MI 5/26/2019 Mechanic continued to push for additional sales even after I said I was only interested in air and oil. Mechanic then broke my tire nozzle which resulted in a flat tire seconds after driving on the road. By the time I was able to change the tire and drive back to the shop, it was closed. I felt very disrespected and annoyed when mechanic repeatedly attempted to sell more services to me after I stated I was not interested. Uncle Ed’s charges a lot more than its competitors and I would expect I would get good service, but instead I got poor service and poor treatment. Uncle Ed’s broke my car more than they fixed it.

Colton – Kalamazoo, MI 2/12/2019 Kris provided very fast and friendly service!

Brittany – Kalamazoo, MI 2/12/2019 Being new to Kalamazoo i was dreading finding a new oil change business. My friend highly recommends your shoppe and even has a t-shirt. As this was my first visit I was unsure of what to expect, but the service was very individual and I felt like I had put my car in good hands when I left. Having a older car with high mileage I don't like taking it just anywhere. The staff were extremely helpful and were able to help me get my car back to where it should be. I was especially happy to hear about the fluid and oil refills as they can become pricey in between changes. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I will be sending others your way!

Rod – Edwardsburg, MI 2/11/2019 Service crew very attentive.

Keldon – Kalamazoo, MI 2/8/2019 Zach was very helpful

Devin – Mattawan, MI 2/5/2019 They never applied any of my discounts. I had $20 off the oil change, 20% off $175 or more, also something off of parts if they cost more than a certain price. Also $7.00 in rewards. None of this was applied and I spent almost $400 there also still need a transmission flush. The manger called and said it would be taken care if and still haven’t got a phone call back or seen money pit back on my card . Other than this issue service was great.

Alexis – Kalamazoo, MI 2/1/2019 Zach was very helpful during the process, especially at explaining everything that was needed and why. It helps knowing why it’s needed and makes people more likely to buy it because sometimes people feel as though they could be scammed. So they always say no.

Billy – Kalamazoo, MI 1/31/2019 Josh is a wonderful store manager he always has a smile on his face and is really good with customers. Matt is a nice individual that is very knowledgeable about cars and explains each process very well.
