Let me preface this by saying that I haven't paid for an oil change in a long time. There's an auto repair place right next to my work that gives me free ones 'cause I do them a lot of favors. Every new car I've had for a long time I've changed the oil the 1st time at about 500 miles, then every 3000. Didn't feel like trusting my Sky to a franchise muffler shop, so I took her to the dealer for her 1st one. HOLY SMOKES........$110 plus tax. I know it's Mobil 1 and there's a lot more to it than just spinning off a filter, but Holy Mary MOG. At least they ran it thru the car wash for me. The sales manager gave me a card for buy 3/get 1 free. With tax that brings it to an average of only $90 apiece. Have I just missed something or does this seem excessive to you?
