Jacks/lifts for getting car up

any suggestions? I'll need to do it by myself to change oil etc. Don't want the damn thing falling on me either. How can one person jackup both sides safely ...little bit on each side slowly? Sorry maybe dumb question but my other car is Tacoma and 2 people can slide under no problem. Thanks

As someone pretty tersley pointed out to me when I asked a similar question, there's info in the DIY section on jacking up the car.

To answer your question though; there are middle jack points for both the front and rear end so you can get both ends up on jack stands. Or for an oil change just use ramps. I'll assume you're smart enough not to get under a car that's just on jacks.

(I see I was slow on the draw... )
