Last time, I paid $24.95 (+$1.50 tax) for oil change, filter, tire rotation,I got a quote for 120 bucks for an oil change and tire rotation ...
True 'nuff, but $120 for oil change & tire rotation is beyond insane.Can't do an oil change in a 2013 2.5 for $25 even if you DIY
You're right, I was exaggerating. My point is also that you won't find anyone who cares more about your car than the one behind the drivers seat every day (or the one whose kids are riding in the back seat). Safety and reliability matters; any work I can do I'll do myself.Can't do an oil change in a 2013 2.5 for $25 even if you DIY
Will you send that to me also?Sending you a PM. I'm sure there is a DIY somewhere on this forum, but I'll hook you up with the Service Manual pdf. It's on pages 767-769 (oil) and 784-785 (oil filter). Extremely straight forward and simple. Note it is not necessary to lift the OB.
Costco has 6 quarts of Mobil 1 for $27, with a coupon which comes up every other month.If you do Mobil 1 you can get the best deal by buying in bulk at Sam's Club, I think it's 6 quarts for around $35. I order OEM Subaru filters in bulk from SubaruOnlineParts.com which come with a drainplug gasket.
Don't use an aftermarket filter, there is a special check-valve in the Subaru filters that is not available on filters from your FLAPS.
I agree with above posts, not sure how you could do an oil change on the OB (using a new OEM filter and Mobil 1) for less than $40 in materials. Maybe he dealer bought oil in massive bulk and charged only their cost.
...Please don't turn this into an oil thread....I know some people have issues with Mobil 1.
