Re: 6K miles for first oil change

5,997 miles and oil life at 32%. Oil life declines rapidly during city driving, but won't decline at all on a 303 mile highway trip.

Re: 6K miles for first oil change

The only place I found that has the required oil is Pep Boys. I found some on Amazon but it really was not a deal. Local dealer will do the first change for free so I will go there for the first one but after that I will buy the oil and filter and either do it myself or have someone like Firestone do it as I did in the past. No one but dealers ever has the right oil for a diesel so I never got a complaint about me buying the oil and filter.

By the way we should start a thread on Who has the best deal on oil and filters. This stuff is not going to be easy to find except at the dealer.

I got my first oil change this morning. I purchased the "Essential Care Diesel - 2 Years / 4 Oil Changes" package for $210.00. This works out to $52.50 per oil change. The service advisor stated they sell the same package from Mopar for the Cummins Diesel for the same price. When he quoted me the price last week, I thought it was wrong. The odd thing is that my service bill came to a total of $210.00. They did not add tax or any kind of shop fees. I'm liking my dealer better today!
