We also carry other brands such as Castrol, Mobil 1, Rotella, and Liqui Molly. Since stocking levels change daily, please give us a call before your next service if you prefer an oil other than Pennzoil. We can also order and stock any other brand of oil that is preferred.

Full Service Oil Changes

All of our oil changes are full service and include the following:

  • Pennzoil motor oil
  • Checking tire pressure
  • Topping off all fluids that are accessible.
  • A reminder sticker in the window for next service
  • Vacuuming the front of the vehicle
  • Resetting oil light as applicable
  • We also offer Castrol, Mobil 1, and Liqui Molly at an extra cost.

NC State Inspections

Before registering your vehicle in North Carolina, you must pass a state inspection. Vehicles that are a 1996 and newer, require an OBD II and safety inspection. Vehicles that are a 1995 or older only require a safety inspection. We can also fix minor problems that will prevent a vehicle from passing inspection, such as brake lights and windshield wipers.

Check Engine Light On?

Stop by today and we can check to see why your check engine light is on and determine what is needed to fix the problem(s). We can fix some of the minor problems associated with check engine lights, such as:

  • Spark Plugs, Wires, and Ignition Coils
  • Oxygen Sensors
  • Knock & Crank Sensors
  • EGR Valves

We do Brakes

At Xpress Auto Center we pride ourselves on using high quality parts at an affordable price. When replacing the brakes on your car, we use top of the line brake pads that have superior stopping power and provide quieter braking. Don’t be fooled by taking your vehicle to a shop that has a ridiculously low price and receive the lowest quality of brake pads. We CAN offer prices that our competitors offer; however, we always recommend using the highest quality of brake pads. Some of the benefits of the brake pads that we use include:

  • Ceramic Material (Unless OE specifically recommends semi-metallic)
  • Quieter Performance
  • Superior Stopping Power
  • Less Dust and Longer Brake Life
  • Meets or Exceeds OE Specifications
We also do other mechanic work such as brakes, tune-ups, alternators, starters, and more. Give us a call at 919-212-6264 to get a quote on your vehicle
