Went to the parts store today to get some "other" oil, and saw that they had the Kendall top of the line for under $4 a quart..Isn't this selling well?? Havn't read any user reports on it.. Just curious

$4 sounds right for Kendall Synth. A bargain/sleeper oil if there ever was one.

I'd say almost all sales of Kendall Liquid Titanium in my area in the form of bulk sales to auto shops. Nearly all of the tire shops here use Kendall, as does the local GM dealer.

Yes, from what I know around here, most all Goodyear and Tires Plus stores utilize it as well. Too bad there isnt a UOA on this, was bored, doing some reading, and they (Kendall) make some impressive wear-reduction claims for it

No, Goodyear signed an agreement with Ashland about two years ago. All Goodyear stores use Valvoline products.

part of their problem is that most of the major parts houses and Walmarts do not carry it around here. Very hard to find without driving. I wrote Kendall and haven't gotten a reply.

I haven't seen the Kendall Titanium in my area yet. If it doesn't sell well, maybe we'll all find it on the discount shelves at our local Ollies or BigLots...SCOOOOOOORRRRRRRRR!

I've seen it at Pepboys for $4.99 a quart and then it went up to $5.39 a quart. I'd guess that it's a very good oil because C-P has it's act together when it comes to motor oil.

Having sold for almost 40 years I sometime wonder what is wrong with these oil companies the way distribution is. I would be out of business along time ago if anything like Kendall happened to the items I sold. What is wrong with these attempts to secure a foothold???? Hidden agenda????

I've only seen it at Pep Boys, and at that price I can get other synthetics on sale for less.
