Well, okay, I lied. I do have an idea about how much they cost. The reason
I didn't bring it up is because I wanted the replies to concentrate on how
much YOU pay/paid in case I got taken. I thought $113.80 for an oil change
was unbelieveably expensive. $15/quart * 4 qts, a ~15 oil filter, and $30+
in labor. Of course, other fees applied and it came up to what I thought
was robbery. It was the first change I had ever gotten done by someone
else. Wow. No wonder I do my own.
I would have done my own up in VA but someone convinced me that being on
military TDY, the gov't would cover the cost. I found out last week that is
not the case. Oh well. That's the last time I'll pay anyone to do one for
