 SHEPHERDSVILLE - Find the mannequins and you'll find JZ's.

Opened in June, JZ's has serviced 9,000 vehicles with oil changes and break jobs.

"We're the only drive-thru oil change in town," said owner West Johnson.

JZ's focuses on those services without pushing customers into extra services or prices.

"If you need something, I'll recommend it, but I won't push you into anything," he said.

Oil changes are $24.95, including five quarts of oil and a filter. Johnson said JZ's will do the work for $15 if you bring in your own oil and filter.

Brake service is available at a starting price of $25 per side on front pads. Johnson said customers were encouraged to bring their own parts with them.

"That way they know how much they're spending on parts," he said. "It lets the customers choose what they use, it's better for the customer that way."

Johnson said JZ's can even offer small mechanical work.

JZ's features a repeat customer rewards card. It includes a free oil filter after a fourth and eighth oil change, free service on the fifth and tenth visit, and a half=price oil change after 12 visits.

"It's not much but it's something nice for the customers," Johnson said. "We don't have coupons, but it's a way to give back to our customers."

JZ's is located at 133 W. Blue Lick Rd. near N. Buckman St. Open hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. For more information call 543-6454.
