Speedco Houston area

I would advice to find another place to go. Not that they are all bad but this location is clueless. Terrible crew when I was there. I had no confidence in anything they were doing. I'm betting only a few grease fittings got grease. They would not let me under the rig which I have heard other locations do. One guy starting pumping in oil and I asked how much he was putting in. He said he had to look it up but was going to start with 7 or 8 gallons. I laughed and said mine takes 4 gallons. They could not find the fuel filter under the coach. I pointed it out and said don't worry about it. I'll do it myself. I felt like I was at Jiffy lube. Holy crap. Guess I'm ordering a grease gun and will being doing my next one. When I got back to my storage I was checking the oil level again and noticed the oil fill cap was hanging by the plastic tie. Oh well. Heard lots of good things about Speedco. Beware out there!

The only shop I let touch my RV so far is Freightliner in Gaffney. I'm just talking oil change. I really knew better but was hoping for something in the ok range. I got way less than ok. They did install my Fumoto valve so I did get something accomplished for the $250 besides 4 gallons of oil and a filter change. I'll crawl under the rig tomorrow and makes sure nothing is leaking/dripping.

Howdy!

I use B Line Lube Service located in Brooshire, Texas just a little west of Katy on I-10. They’ve done a good job every time for me on our MDT and 5er. Seen them Service motor homes while I was there along with their generator.

I have been using Speedco in Northern CA for the last 6 years and all has been OK, I just had them service my Coach and was surprised how there prices have increased, there generator service doubled from 2 years ago, I also had a 4 hour wait on a Sunday morning, they were slower than slow, next time I will check Cummings and probably make the change, I did notice a lot of trainees on this trip which worried me.

Every Speedco is like going to a completely different company. I'm sure some are just great. Just not this one. I was just trying to avoid greasing the chassis myself. I have no faith it got greased. He was fast on the grease gun and since he did not know his way around my chassis I doubt he did much at all. It was a bad experience and a complete waste of money. The oil change is really not a problem for me to do myself. I'll do it next time unless I'm in Gaffney for service at Freightliner.
