Looks like I will have to shop around at other Warranty Approved places or do the Oil Changes myself based on everyone's comments. I am meticulous keeping receipts and records so this shouldn't be a problem. I will probably start using Synthetic or a Synthetic Blend on the next oil change as I have been using regular oil up until now.

Thanks everyone!

Eastside Dodge oil changes are $57.71 taxes in and also have a quicklube express lane. Wonder why other dealers are charging so much

It is a little rediculous especially since I believe both Eastside and Varsity are owned by the same group. I've already told my Service Writer at Varsity that I am not very happy and am looking elsewhere and he promised to take care of me. He said he should be able to match any other dealer but that I would have to take in a copy of the Oil Change Invoice. Thanks for letting me know what you are paying at Eastside!

Unfortunately, we get ripped royally up here in Canada when it comes to new vehicle and servicing prices. I used to pay $32.00 CAD for my 2003 Hemi Dino oil changes up until about 2 years ago when the prices started creeping upwards. I changed her oil religiously at 5000 km (3000 miles) and she now has 140,000 km with no issues - gave her to my Dad last year for his 75th birthday . For my 2011 Hemi Ram, I am going to switch over to Synthetic at 20,000 km which will be at my next oil change. Hope your service prices in the US do not creep up like those here in Canada!
