Anytime I read anything about oil changes and dealerships on this forum it just reinforces my belief in doing ALL my own maintenance.
I've shared that sentiment my whole life. One and only time I've let someone touch any of my vehicles, shy of an inspection sticker, was getting the steering box tsb done a couple months back. Even then, if it wasn't for the associated software update, I would've preferred to buy the parts and do it myself. Heres the view that I didn't leave for the 3.5 hrs it took.

Guess I'm not the only one standing by the window looking in......3.5 hrs, that's painful for an hour and a half job. How do techs make money. When I worked at a motorcycle dealer I would have starved with that kind of productivity.

If your a do it yourself kinda guy save your money and build a tall garage with a hoist you will thank yourself the rest of your life. Its a one-time purchase and it makes routine maintenance fun. I haven't been to a dealer oil change in over 30 years.
