I don't mean to sound naive, but I recently inquired with a non-dealer technician relative to estimates on various services to the car. Most were reasonable, until we got to the oil change: $300.00. Now, I've paid more than $400.00 at the dealer, but we know all about them. What is it about this car that drives the cost of an oil change so high when the same garage will replace springs for $1,000.00? Am I missing something here? Is there anything wrong with using your neighborhood Jiffy-Lube type shop just for an oil change? Could it possibly take more than one hour of labor to change the oil? Does anybody do it themselves. I don't have a lift, but am otherwise somewhat mechanically inclined. Are the filters readily available? Thanks guys!
