: 2012 SRX Oil Change question..

11-30-11, 02:30 PM
Just got my daughter an SRX for graduation. I realize that Caddy gives us free oil changes, but I would like to do my own. Wondering if anyone has, and is everything easy to get to? She has the car @ school and I was wondering...

Since you get it done for free you might want to reconsider .... why do it yourself unless you really enjoy doing it and like paying for all the oil and parts etc?

You also might want to take a look at this thread for some additonal information.

Will i need anything except oil and filter for oil change? I mean are there any special one time parts i will need, like oil cap or something (2.8T engine)

I don't know about the 2.8t, but, the 3.0 is so easy to change. I do my without any problems. I use Mobil 1 oil and Mobil M1-113 filter.
Autozone has an Mobil 1 oil sale going on right now. If you have an autozone close by, check it out, or go online and look at their monthly flier.
Nothing special to do....

2.8L engine was not available in 2012 ... what's the 10th digit of your VIN? it will tell your year model... A=2010 B=2011 C=2012


if you have a 2011 or 2012 just take it to your dealer and get it done for free under the Premium Care Maintenance
