Im checking my mopar online and i saw this offer. $115 for 2yrs or 4 oil change. This looks cheap!
Im about to prefer and do it myself but looks like this is good deal.
Not sure what trim level you have but check to see if you may have got the 2 free years of 'Ram Care' maintenance which include 4 oil changes and tire rotations. Big Horn and above got them in 2017.
LOL... sorry, but i just get a kick out of all these oil change deals ya`ll think your getting.
What your getting is basic low quality dino oil, oil filter, and some dumbass monkey makin a mess of things doing it.
And the dumbass dealer monkey doing the job, i guarantee they aren`t torquing the oil drain plug to proper spec either.
Correct me if i`m wrong, but 25 ftlbs of torque is all thats needed on the oil pan drain plug.
Watch them do your oil change, i bet you wont see a torque wrench used on the oil pan drain plug to re-tighten it.
Drain plugs can and do strip very easily... pay close attention to who`s working on your vehicles.
I pay $4.50 per qt x 7 qts = $31.50 for pennzoil 5w20 synthetic at walmart. Change my own oil. Properly torqued drain plug. No oil dripping/running on the steering rack or frame, ALWAYS cleaned up when done. No dealer will do the job better than me, so i dont let them touch my truck for regular service work that i can do at home. What do i get out of all this... satisfaction and knowing the job was done right, the first time. (as well as save on UN-NEEDED labor costs) Why anyone would want some dumbass touching their vehicle is beyond me. It would be alot different if they knew what they were doing. Yeah yeah, i know, most people have the perfect mechanic that they trust. So do i... ME!
I use the walmart bag that my oil came in... same trick, different package...lol. I also lay a plastic bag over the area just below the filter... that way the oil that drips from the engine block will be alot easier to clean up.i checked the oil filter location and why on earth it was there lol.
looks like i will use ziplock trick!
That's a good deal. My 14 Hemi is $83 including tax and fees at the dealer. I average about 1 1/2 changes per year so that's about $120/yr. To me, that's a pretty good insurance policy as they check about everything on the truck and if they screw it up, they'll be there when I come back.On my 2015 Pentastar I got the oil package. I usually doo not get any type packages from dealers but this was hard to pass up. 4 100% Synthetic Oil and 4 tire rotations 211$= tax if I remember right so may have been 225$, SO A good deal to me NOW I will be getting oil changed again soon and see what the new package cost is as I already had last change done .
Bob I thought it was a good deal. My Pentastar takes 6 qt. oil if I remember right! And at 65 I DO NOT work on my RAM or Car. They go to dealer or a mechanic friend ! I want more time goofing off lol..That's a good deal. My 14 Hemi is $83 including tax and fees at the dealer. I average about 1 1/2 changes per year so that's about $120/yr.

At 75/yo that also leaves me more time for Golf and building hotrods in my polebarn. It hasn't been inconvenient lately because they've been doing recalls during each visit.
I personally don't use the bag trick, I grab a small flat rate box from the post office ( they're free and I am there alot) Trim it and place angled towards the oil catch pan works like a charm.i checked the oil filter location and why on earth it was there lol.

Makes me wonder what oil they`re putting in his truck to sell a job that cheap. I guess if it works for him, go for it!Dad's been getting his oil changed with these 4 pack oil change deals from Mopar since he got his Ram in 2009. Every 5000 miles and zero issues with the truck.
Its a good deal, you can't change it yourself for that cheap
