First, congrats on your new ride and welcome

Consider DIY for oil change.

Buy a set of Rhino Ramps for around $45.
Check out the link on what oil to use (someone posted for you earlier)
Check out the oil change DIY on this site.

You should be able to do a change for around $45 (not counting your ramps).

You may see cheaper from big names (like Goodyear, Firestone, Walmart) for a full synthetic, but that's the low-ball price. They will charge extra for the filter and for the extra two quarts of oil our cars take. And as someone noted, they may not do it right or put in the oil they say they're using.

If you DIY, you control the process and can also do it for less. Takes about a half hour.
