Me...I like changing the oil myself (saving all the receipts of course), and saving a buck or two. Whatever you do OP, NEVER go to those quick oil change places like Jiffy Lube!

The dealers around here are undercutting the Jiffy Lube prices, but they did seem to move the coffee away from the "express lane" and into the sales area.

My Mopar 4 oil change deal is in my Owner Connect Account tied to my VIN. I can use it at any CDJR dealer. The only problem with this package is that it expires after two years.

I always go to the dealer since they are free.

Every once in a while I get coupons for the oil change and tire rotation for $24.95. That's the only time I take it to the dealer.

Next time you are there, chat with the service manager if those coupons don't come regularly enough to match your change intervals...

24.95 is kinda high for dino pee, particularly with a coupon. Higher than regular express lane pricing here.

Re: Should i get my oil changed at the dealer?

If you go to https://www.moparownerconnect.com/oc...nersLogin.aspx and have an account (free), you can always go to the maintenance tab, then click on the 'coupons' button.

Sometimes good, sometimes not so good.

Re: Should i get my oil changed at the dealer?

I went to change the oil on my WJ last weekend and the oil/filter cost more @ Advance Auto parts than service @ Jiffy lube. I went to Jiffy Lube, was out in 15 minutes with everything vacuumed and fluids topped off.

Always check their work. Some stores might have good mgt., but a lot of them do not. Mine did not. I was charged for work they claimed to have done but never touched.

They're often called Iffy Lube in some circles.

Re: Should i get my oil changed at the dealer?

I know tell me about it. First time I ever went there and it was slow. I watched everything they did while standing outside. I heard the guy say 7 qts to the other guy with the oil hose and I had to tell hem it was only 6.
