Prius 5k Service

The Hybrid Intermediate Service your car receives at Atomic Auto is so much more than just a quick lube or 5k service.

Modern vehicle owners feel more savvy these days talking about K Services, like 'that 30k service your buddy got last week that the shop totally screwed him on...' Well, dealers have capitalized on K Services by creating a myth that something special happens at these intervals, and matched that myth with inflated service prices over their "regular express lube" lanes.

My impression of the system (though I’m sure it varies) is that an individual will get whatever they come to expect—the $40 express lube or the $150 K Service—regardless of what they actually need.
