Kent Lube is all about customer service. First of all, they don't make you wait in your hot car, they invite you and start you off with a refreshing beverage. They have industry-leading waiting areas with kids' play areas and work areas. They also do complimentary window cleaning, vacuum floorboards, air tires, and more. I love the fact they take care of the entire vehicle. If you don't want to mess with getting new wiper blades, let Kent Lube take care of them for you.
