Take 5 in Ocala review

I was more than impressed with Ocala's Take 5 and employees, Emily and Sean.

Emily was kind, knowledgeable, and quickly pulled up my computer file since I had been there before.

Plus, she was speedy and got us in and out of there in 8 minutes.

Our visit included a 4-minute oil change (4 minutes!), 4 minutes changing the engine filter, offering and providing me and my son free water and juice, and paying.


Emily's fellow employee, Sean, was also patient when I couldn't find the hood opener and guided me safely over the pit with ease.

On my way out, there's a sign that says honk if you enjoyed your service. I always do!

Thanks Take 5 in Ocala for the quick, hassle-free experience; you save this Ocala mom loads of time and prevented me from being late for carline!
