    Just going back to doing all my own maintenance. Funny how those jiffy lube guys miss so many grease fittings. Not funny to replace ball joints, idler arms, pitman arms.

    Using WIX/Napa filters, Valvoline MaxLife oil.

    I will be the first to say I take mine to the local mechanic. He is a friend of my family's and plus its not too expensive. I Had a cobalt before so jacking it up to get under it was a hassle so I took it to him. I payed 250 for lifetime oil changes and I only pay another 25 to transfer it to my truck so I can't beat it. It pays for itself overtime.
