Suggestions on dealer for oil changes in Long Island?

Can anyone suggest a dealer in long island that wont damage my 2022 1LE for oil changes, etc. in Long Island, NY?

Worried about the dealer not lifting the car properly, racing it, etc.

Ideally id prefer to do my own oil changes, but im concerned about GM denying me on warranty claims if I do not service it at a GM dealer during the warranty period.

Do it yourself, they can NOT deny you warranty for doing your own oil changes, I would NEVER take my car to the dealer for something as easy as an oil or diff fluid change... I've been doing my own maintenance on cars for 30+ years, I have NEVER been denied any type of warranty claim because of it...

Keep your receipts and I keep a spreadsheet for each of my cars that I log all maintenance items on that shows date and mileage...

DO NOT TAKE IT TO THE DEALER if you can do it yourself... Seriously, I'd be far more worried about the dealer screwing it up, wrong fill, wrong oil, lifting it wrong, etc... The guys doing the oil changes at the dealer are at the bottom of the food chain, usually the most junior guy...

Do it yourself, it voids nothing, as long as use proper oil and filter and appropriate intervals.

That said, Buzz Chew Chevrolet is great, but pretty far east. Chevrolet 112 is also quite good, they are Corvette/Camaro specialists, however, be sure you talk to service manager to insure you get the "right guy".

112 did my first freebie change, I have done all of them since myself. Get a set of quickjacks and never look back!!!

Thanks guys.

I bought the car from 112 Chevy, and dealt with Bob Shortle. The experience was painless and they stuck to their word selling at MSRP less GM Supplier discount. Unfortunately no other discounts because of the current market.


Ill try to get my first freebie oil change done at 112 Chevy and do the rest on my own,

Purchase your own oil and filter. Then take it to a quick oil change place where they don't have to jack it and most will do a drain and fill for ~35 bucks.

I had my ‘22 on order with Chevy 112. After 5 months of zero movement I found my exact car in Michigan and purchased from them. At the time I ordered from 112 I was told they have 2 mechanics that are the only ones that work on Camaros and Corvettes.

I’m in Ridge but work in Mineola. I ordered my SS from 112 but after 5 months at sitting at 1100 I searched the Chevrolet inventory and found my exact build and color and a dealership in Michigan. Called them and bought it over the phone. It had 4 miles on it.
