Damn, my regular oil change cost $22 for my Olds, and that was with a coupon. You don't want to know what the dealership charges for a synthetic oil change. If you do want to know, its about $75. I usually do my own cars, but when its 10 degrees outside I either bring the car to the shop, or just wait untill it warms up. I'll wait before I bring the Chevy in for a $75 oil change.

I call B.S. on this, but it's humorous nonetheless:

At Jiffy Lube, they always try to get me to pay for extra stuff at the last minute. You just have to learn to say "no". That is what will rack up your bill. I think it is pretty expensive in the first place ($25, i think), but they also fill other fluids and wash windows, so I'm satisfied.
Last time, they did some minor "extra", and tried to get me to pay for it, and I told them, "look, I never asked you guys to do that", so he didn't charge me for it. Sucks for those consumers (like my mother-in-law) who give in to that crappy sales pitch.
She paid extra for rental insurance on her last visit here, because the clerk "recommended it". I had already told her that many insurance policies already include it for her own vehicle, so check that first. She didn't. anyway, i'm digressing too much...

We wash our cars once a year -- whether they need it or not!

Seriously, I miss California, where the car wash was dirt cheap, and the cars stayed clean for days rather than hours.

How is this different from how we obtain alcohol?
