Oil change and tire rotation prices rant

Postby Mjkkb2 » Fri Nov 30, 2018 7:43 am

This will be a quick rant on the prices that the service charges to maintain the cars we drive. I know that they like for you to think that you drive a very luxurious car, but let’s be honest - it’s just a Nissan with some nice stuff inside. I know that their free coffee, pastries, new loaner car and the plush lounge to watch TV on the big screen aren’t really free. But give me a break! $170 for an oil change and tire rotation on a soccer mom mobile!!!!!!
F**k that NO THANKS!

I apologize to those offended by my soccer mobile comment. I like the QX and drive my kids proudly to practice. #soccerdad

Take it to a nissan dealer ? its just a dressed up pathfinder after all. My 2018 SL costs less than $50 for synthetic oil change, filter and tire rotation at courtesy Nissan Richardson

Do it yourself. $50 for synthetic oil and a filter, and the rotation is free.

Better yet, do what Ian suggested above, and eat all the dealership's donuts.

MJ, you know me from the M community...I wrote a how-to for the oil ;).

That being said, yes, sometimes it's better to take an Infiniti to a Nissan dealer. For example, my Infiniti dealer wanted like $600 to change the spark plugs on my M56x. I took it to Nissan for $350. Normally, I'd do it myself, but the plugs by the firewall were impossible for me so I caved.

unfortunately Courtesy Nissan does do much in way of munchies but they email service specials and reminders! And the price is tight, they wash and vac the car for free as well.
