Default Road trip from coastal NC to Fresno California

I'm driving to Fresno Ca from NC in mid December and I will be due for a oil change in California.

I looked at the trusted tdi mechanic site and didnt see someone in the area to change my oil. I usually do all my own maintenance and don't mind doing it myself if had a place to do it.

I'll be traveling west on I40 from NC to Fresno Ca. Any suggestion for oil change in the Fresno California area?

I thought about it, but then I'll be around 3k miles early for maintenance... I try to keep maintenance around 10k mark so easy for me to remember.

Find a dealer with good reviews along the way, preferably where you are going to spend the night somewhere. Take it in first thing in the morning and then have breakfast and return to get it. Little time wasted and you get it done. Albuquerque, Flagstaff and Bakersfield seem to be good choices just from looking at the map.

This one in Flagstaff, AZ seems to have very good reviews.
