You didn't get ripped off...........you got raped!
Screw the stealership. I get all fluids done at Jiffy lube. You can even bring your own fluid and just pay labor.
Way cheaper than stealership and you get to stand there and watch. What could go wrong?

Don't get me started on lube joints. I still have the 12 inch needle nose pliers they left in the engine bay.

Re: Did I get ripped off by the service dept?

Life's all about learning from your mistakes. I definitely learned a lot from this one.

A big thanks to everyone in this thread. I'll be consulting the owner's manual more often and coming to the board with any questions before I head to the dealership.

That wasn't a Jiffy Lube. (Valvoline Instant Oil Change place.)

Did I get ripped off by the service dept?

I just changed my cabin filter... cost me $30 shipped and two minutes of my time.

A $100 installed for the same thing is them blatantly taking advantage of you!!

That's a very expensive "check", lube, oil, filter and rotation...
