I think this free oil change would not be taxed in my state though.

Re: FRee oil change have to pay tax?!?!?!

You guys have never used coupons for free items at the grocery store? You still pay tax on those items...at least in AL and TN you do. I bought 10 coffee drinks the other day that were on sale for $1 each and then used 10 $1 coupons...my total out of pocket expense was about $.90 for 10 bottles b/c of the tax. It is not really that difficult of a concept to understand as coupons are typically taken off the post-tax amount (YMMV based on state).

Re: FRee oil change have to pay tax?!?!?!

Yeah, I had a coupon for a $24.95 Oil Change and Tire Rotation at my Dealer. Even brought my own Mobil One (7 Qts. Hemi) and it ended up costing me $29.01 with Tax and "Disposal". Asked the service writer about a "credit" for bringing my own oil. No luck!

What do you expect? You wouldn't walk into a diner with your own eggs and ask them to cook them for you, would you?

Actually I have brought my own synthetic oil for years to dealers and independent shops alike, ever since a Lexus dealer charged me $20 a quart for Mobil 1 (which was $5 at the time)

I have always gotten a credit off for bringing my own oil. In fact, I've never even had to ask.

Re: FRee oil change have to pay tax?!?!?!

The tax is not determined by the dealership or the OEM. The state determines those rules. The dealership will not get one penny of the tax collected, it will all go to the state.

In California, even if you get a rebate on a purchase, the tax levy is on the full price, before the rebate.

I know it is pretty unfair, but your anger should be focused on the state, not the dealership.

Dealership has to do all the paperwork, deal with the unhappy customer, and submit it to the state, and gets nothing out of the deal.

Only thing a consumer can do is to vote out the people that supported these unfair tax rules.

Re: FRee oil change have to pay tax?!?!?!

You know what, it's all smoke and mirrors anyway. Why don't they just put on the coupon *Does not include Tax and Disposal? Then to make matters worse, the monkey who did my service didn't wipe everything down, and I found a small "puddle" of oil under the car the next morning. Crawled underneath and found oil dripping off the drain plug and new filter. Took a rag and cleaned everything off myself and all's well.

Would it kill the tech's to take a rag and wipe everything off as they're changing the oil??? I mean, this is a 45k vehicle after all. Now I know why people tend to spend more for Mercedes, Range Rovers, Porsches etc., etc. For the level of service they receive.

Re: FRee oil change have to pay tax?!?!?!

The guys who do free oil changes are not 'techs'. You get what you pay for.

The guys that do oil changes you pay for aren't techs either.

Re: FRee oil change have to pay tax?!?!?!

Service Manager told me he was putting his "Lead Service Tech" on my car to do the Oil Change / Tire Rotation because he knew how "particular" I am. Guess it didn't help! Still...Service "Tech" or not, what kind of "mechanic" does an oil change, and just leaves oil dripping off everything and doesn't wipe things off clean? Am I crazy, or does this seem like something even a child would know to do??
