|focusauto01||Does anyone have a suggestion for a place to order the oil cheaper?? I enjoy doing local oil changes neighborhood people considering it's quicky money and cheap. If I only make 15.00, hell I'm happy with $15. in 30 minutes. But the price of oil at these parts stores is crazy.|

My dealer gives me "free" oil changes but I have to pay for the filter + taxes which makes it $10 as long as I bought my car there for the life of the car.
Doesn't really push to sell me any other services either.
Works for me, got another car there.. :)

|#1fordfan||many many years ago against my better judgement I worked at an oil change place for a couple years. This one was an independent owner,not a franchise. This guy was honest to the core. If you tried selling a customer a new air filter,wipers,whatever,it better damn well need changed!! You took a hit in commission if you got caught selling things when it wasn't needed. This guy had a great reputation in the area and made a lot of money in his business. And he did use quality oil(pennzoil or quaker state,can't remember which). but he got huge discounts because he bought in bulk. He had a computer program that when the license plate number was entered into it,it would give the history of oil changes,air filters,whatever so you would know by mileage if it was due to be changed or even needed checked.|

|DJ2BIG||My car dealer sends out free oil changes to 3 year old customers in hopes of selling them a new car, guess what it works!|

Even if they sell other stuff to only every third person. they can make money.
Struts, shocks, tires, antifreeze flush, all sorts of stuff.

|xxMichaelAnthony||From what friends have told me, Jiffy Lube's unwritten "company policy" is that employees must try to up sell at least $65 in other services even if they aren't needed. All lube and tune places make their money on up sells to their favourite type of customers, people who don't know shit about cars. I stay away from all these quick lube places, including Walmart, no matter what deals they have. Way to many horror stories come out of them. I stick to Midas down the street. $30 with tire rotation and everything gets done proper. Worst I've had happen from them is a cross threaded wheel stud and they over filled my oil once. And they always have filters in stock. Most quick lube places, if they don't have the proper filter in stock, will just wipe off the one that is already there and call it changed...|
