    Oil changes, who does yours?

    Just curious who you trust with oil changes on your lades. I have the Dealer do mine, its just over $30, and I know it gets done right. Plus I get a free car wash too.

    I have thought about doing it myself but youll end up spending more buying good oil and filter, plus labor
    For $30 bucks, you cant beat getting a Deville rental and a car wash for free

    Me...I like to use Mobil 1 and K&N Oil filter. It also gives me the chance to look around underneth for other problems. (I always check tranny and transfer case for leaks etc...). Lost the 3rd and 4th gears at 2,300 miles and 2 weeks of ownership. 2004 Escalade.

    The dealership does it for me. It used to be right around $50, but now they give me the coupon special everytime, so its right around $30.

    The dealer does ours. It's in right now... All regular maintanance is free for 4 years or 100,000 Km's when we bought it this summer... All we do is fill it with gas - the Dealer does the rest of the Mtce...

    I use the same combo as GMike. however I havent had any problems with the transmission. When doing the oil change I expect for leaks or any other possible problems.

    I know my is free for 4 years or 80km's. Covered under the warranty in Canada are oil changes, filters, fluids, brake pads. Not sure about US.

    Re: Oil changes, who does yours?

    Dealer about every 4000 miles. $50 includes rotating the tires and a car wash. They are real good and i know if i have any problems with warranty they did all the work so there is no doubt.

    dealership or i go to a local place that you don't even need an appointment just show up. Recently I went to a chevy dealership and they charged me $32. Hahaha they treated me like a god in there as opposed to the times I had my tahoe there. Guess it pay to have the #1 truck.
