    Has anyone else signed up for the new car fleet maintenance program through CarAdvise for Uber. I just had my oil changed(full synthetic) and it only cost me 10$.

    Not the receipt. I wanna see the full work order.

    Correction: Receipt if receipt IS the work order. Both if the work order and receipt are separate.

    This was a special that was running Friday, if you signed up and scheduled an oil change that day , and had it done within 30 days then it was guaranteed only 10$.

    Wow, I wasn't expecting them to actually NOT screw things up with this. lmao
    Sounds like a nice deal to me. Just slightly concerning that I don't see a filter listed there. With oil in the motor for that long, the filter should be changed each time to avoid flow obstruction.
    Still, 5QTs of premium syn at $10... Can't beat it!

    Oh I got a filter also. That wouldn't be much of a oil change without one haha, it was done at Firestone, I prefer local garages but it's one of the few that is in their network.

    Ahh, good! I was hoping you would say that. If it gets you deals like that, complete like that, its a heck of a deal!
    Just a concern because some places do not include a filter unless you specify that you want it changed. And still others charge additional for oil AND a filter.

    That's an important caveat! Hate letting others change my oil but for this$ gonna learn to relax. (and check level around the bock, lol.)

    I've started doing my own again. $25 for the oil plus another $5 for the filter. Spent about $15 for tools the first time.

    And available 24/7, unless the weather sucks.

    I should probably start getting rid of the used oil, though, before my dear Significant Other starts to b****.

    I think it is too.

    I used to go to Mr. Car Wash. It was about $75, but they'd thrown in a car wash and vacuum too. Which I certainly benefitted from.

    Yes! And get good tools including a floorjack and stands. (safety first!) and it's 10 15 minutes!

    I just showed Carol how to do hers. Now she looks forward to the light coming on. LoL

    Easy, cheaper and kinda fun. If worried (for others) that you can't do it DYI. Just watch some vids online. By the 3rd one, you'll be yelling that they are doing something the hard way, LoL.

    I'm skinny and drive an SUV, so I just lay down and slide under there. (That's always a useful skill. Haha!)

    Oh! I forgot to include the cost of the drip pan. I already had that, though.

    And make darned sure you don't over tighten the drain plug putting it back in.

    I may ask Santa for a set of ramps for Christmas.

    Harbor Fright has a great set, cheap Christine. They look flimsy but are awesome. My Prius is like 4" off the ground and they are a must have.

    But cheap and perfect angle. And they come apart which has come in oddly handy for other stuff. And storage. Their chocks are like 4 bucks, too.

  19. Yeah I got it done at Walmart and it included the air filter. I just wish I could get a $20 oil change still.

    I cracked up at your first line. And can do car repairs!?! total package!!!!
    LOL

    I bet, RoRo. But car will live a much better life with good oil. Really makes a difference with longevity.

    ..and admire that you knew to use the better.
