Miller’s Auto Lube has been in Corinth for 13 years and has developed a solid reputation due to its quality work and customer service, the owner said.

The business, which is located on Highway 72 West across from Kroger, delivers quick service in a professional manner, owner Kevin Miller said.

“I know and understand that people have a very limited amount of time to get their cars serviced,” Miller noted. “We want to be quick but thorough and do a good job. We really try to stress quality and quickness.”

Customers often come in saying they have heard good things about Miller’s Auto Lube, he added. Miller’s Auto Lube has been voted the No. 1 oil change in the area for the past three years.

There are many loyal, repeat customers who continue to come to Miller’s Auto Lube, he said.

Miller said he thinks the business has seen such great success over the years due to the quality work and other factors. Customers see the same faces working at the business, which does not have a lot of turnover.

Moreover, Miller noted that he and his staff are local people who have families in the local churches and children in the community schools.

Miller and his wife Shannon have two children— Connor, 6, and Raylin, 5. Shannon is a mortgage loan officer at BancorpSouth.

Miller said the highlight of his day is coming home to see his family, and he also enjoys fishing in his spare time.

Miller’s faith is also very important to him, which is why he included the Christian fish symbol on his business’ logo. It also goes back to how he runs his business with honesty and integrity, he said.

There is a friendly atmosphere at Miller’s Auto Lube, and many days there are hugs exchanged at the business.

“It’s kind of a family feel,” Miller said. “You never know what somebody’s going through. They know we’re not trying to force feed them stuff to replace in their cars.”

Miller opened the business after a friend in New Albany with a similar shop sparked an interest. Miller and his wife decided to take a big chance and saw that the building on Highway 72 West in Corinth was for sale.

The business has grown tremendously over the years and continues to do so as Miller’s Auto Lube has established a trust with the community, he said.

“We definitely thank the wonderful people here in Corinth,” Miller said. “This is home for us.”

Miller’s Auto Lube, which has three bays, maintains a clean and tidy shop for the customers and offers a waiting room with a TV. However, Miller said some customers joke that the service is so quick that they don’t even have time to get comfortable before it is time to go.

“Nobody wants to sit around and wait an hour for an oil change,” he said.

He is not a business owner who relaxes while the staff members do the work. He is right in there working too.

“We take time and try to do everything exactly the way we would want it done,” Miller said.

A full-service oil change starts at $35.99 and includes checking the tire pressure and everything under the hood, topping off fluid, vacuuming and a “total inspection,” Miller said.

Other than oil changes, Miller’s Auto Lube offers other services such as tire rotations, brake work, air conditioner recharges, radiator and transmission flushes, wiper blades, batteries and much more.

Miller said he could not run the business without his great staff, which includes Trea Yeager, Junior McGaha, Ernest McGaha, Tyler Jones, Josh Steward and Cory Pleasant.

Miller’s Auto Lube is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    I have been with Kevin since the beginning, he is a great friend and runs a awesome business. We run ideas past each other all the time, and in sales it’s a fine line between selling and selling what the customer really needs, Kevin is always about the customer . I’ve heard him say many times “you really don’t need that this visit” where a lot of shops are all about the sale today. I highly recommend Millers Auto Lube! Keep up the great work.
