    Default What's your oil change cost?

    What does it cost you to get your oil changed? Do you go to a dealer or a quickie place?

    I've been getting my oil changed at a full-service car wash called Paisley's in South Arlington, Texas. They charge the same for oil/filter/lube that the other places like Jiffy Lube charge, BUT they give a free carwash, and that worth like $15. They vacuum out everything until it's clean. They wash all of the windows, the mirrors and even the rear-view mirror. And they even spray a very nice scent on the interior and it comes out smelling and looking great! Then they hand-dry the car and polish it up so that it looks great.

    That costs me about $33 after tax for oil/filter/lub and a full-service car wash. I get the Trailblazer done there and my wife's little Caviliar there too. My mother-in-law's Malibu will be the next to go there.

    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)

    Default RE: What

    Jiffy lube for me. about $30. They're supposed to "vacuum", but they barely pass it over the carpet at all. Most of the time they forget to do the windows too.

    Default RE: What

    That doesn't sound like a bad deal. Getting a good oil change and a car wash and a vacuum for anything under $50 is a good deal.

    I used to change my own oil, but I'm afraid about voding the warranty if I lose the receipts, etc. So I go pay about $20 to a shop that I have to schedule an appointment with.

    $30 at a jiffy lube type place in town. I would love to have a full service place like that around me...nothing though.

    Wow, that's a good deal. I guess you get the level of service that you pay for. For me, time is $$, so I need to save time so that I can make money by working and doing projects, etc.

    We only have 1k miles (in 3 weeks!), so I don't know yet. We plan on taking it to a dealer so we can save all of the records.
