For oil change, and regular maintenance. Do you do it yourself? or do you take your car somewhere else and if so where?

Thanks,
Tony

I gave that up a long time before I got the Viper. I have a local dealer do it and they are an exception to othe dealers I read about.

Not hard to do, but the car has to be perfectly level to get all the old oil out, if not you can be left with a quart or more still in the pan.

Back in the late 90s I took my Viper to the Pennzoil place off 202 in Redmond, brought my own oil and filter, he charged ~$20 plus tax. Always did a great job and was social too as he owned a couple of muscle cars and the shop owner had an older corvette.

Just went to Jiffy **** with the 300 SRT8 and while they did a great job, I think the service should have come with a payment plan.

One other option, the MOPAR facebook page just had some coupons that give you a discount at the dealer. Again normally they exclude the Viper and Hemi cars but if you bring your own oil they usually honor the coupons.

Here is the link to the coupons.

it is the easiest car to work on out of all cars I ever dealt with. the access to the drain plug and filter is very easy. Also, after changing trans fluid in a corvette a few times, I can level any car perfectly on 4 mismatched jacks, bricks, bits of firewood, stacks of old brake rotors, you name it :)

i would never take a car to most dealerships for something that's doable in my garage (even for warranty-covered repairs), especially a car I drive at the track. I've see them work and I've seen results of their work. No thank you.
