It's even cheaper if you do it yourself.

...and if you watch for oil / filter specials at Autozone, Advanced and Walmart, you may be able to get the cost to around $50 or less.

My dealer always has specials or coupons on their website for $80. You can reset the oil counter yourself to save the 40 bucks or whatever they charge for a reset.

This is a GOOD deal. I'd sure take it, assuming it was apples-to-apples.

I get it done now for around $80, which involves:

- Trip to Wal-Mart for 7 quarts of Mobil 1 (around $45)
- Trip to dealer for OEM filter (cheap like 12 bucks)
- Trip to NTB for the service using my parts - ask for coupon price, around $25.

I realize DIY is an option -- the filter is right there on top, as is the fill cap -- but I don't have a lift or much garage space to work with, and the cover at the bottom of the car is not something I want to mess with unless the car is high enough for me to stand up under.

As you can see from the posts above, even at dealerships the price is all over the place.

For me here in KC, I get mine done at the dealership. I do two changes a year, one they cover the other I pay for. The one I pay for costs around $116 after tax.

With the filter on top its a pretty clean change. Just drive up rhino ramps and literally 5-10 mins later your done. Very easy to change oil on these motors.

Cheapest I've seen is $58 but the dealership is shady, it's where they shot that video "Uncle Drew" Pepsi Max. I've paid for 2 oil changes and one was $70, the other $74. i want to DIY but have an extended warranty. Do you guys DIY anyway if you have an extended warranty? I mean I've been DIY for 9 years on my Nissan and I do our other car so why not...
