What kind of oil do you prefer?RNOX said:My dealer will do it for $89.99 (syn. oil change). You can get an organic oil change with tire rotation for $39.99 and get back another $10 on a visa gift card. I do my own changes anyways to make sure they are done properly.
Or you could stick to untrained people at places like Jiffy Lube...Which is known in my area for not performing services, to include not changing your oil filter/air filter or fluids on some services. I work for Bridgestone as an area technical rep, I trust our corporate stores because I have seen the audits they must pass annually. I perform audits on dealers involved with BBTS (another division of Bridgestone), and most of those are independents. Our independents perform the worst in these audits, our corporate stores are held to much higher standards, because they represent the company and along with my audit, must pass the companys OCR (same audit our all our manufacturing/service locations must pass)gar187er said:firestone?!?! might as well go to walmart....
Yes our dealership also charges $89.99 for an oil change with Mobile 1, but right now I'm using the $750 maintenance card so they're free. When that's done I'll do them myself.Old Lar said:I ususally change my own oil in my cars. Although the dealer wants a fortune for Mobil 1.($89.99) I took the oil in, they supplied the filter and I paid the bill. I also was having the coolant flushed. I'm still looking at the Nox as my next DD car, but I'll wait for some financial incentive before I plop dowm $25K.
You must be from Canada as in the states the LS has a MSP of about $22K plus shipping and sales tax. With just a couple of options an LT1 runs $24.9K plus.2010Nox said:Yes our dealership also charges $89.99 for an oil change with Mobile 1, but right now I'm using the $750 maintenance card so they're free.

Only $25K for a new Nox? Here the base price of an LS is $26K so by the time you drive it home the minimum you could of paid is over $29K. Our 1LT with a few options was close to $34K when all was said and done.
Bingo! The land of the overtaxed and endless handouts, often to the least deserving!Old Lar said:You must be from Canada as in the states the LS has a MSP of about $22K plus shipping and sales tax. With just a couple of options an LT1 runs $24.9K plus.
