I get it and that's a good deal, but do you really want to go back?

Either way, get it in writing.

What is a $100 oil change? I've only ever heard of prices like that on diesel trucks. What are they doing that costs $100?

Yeah I haven't been to an oil change shop in a while I guess. I was having my Subaru oil changed at a dealer for a while because they threw in a few with the purchase. Those included a tire rotation and multi point inspection. I don't remember the exact price, but I know it wasn't even close $100.

Typing that reminded me that I sent my wife to a local oil change shop while I was out of town for work a few years ago so she could get the oil changed in her Jetta. The guy ended up charging her $90 or $100. I remember being super pissed about that because I know if I had taken the car in there he wouldn't have had the balls to charge that much. Anyway, the point being that no oil change is worth $100. If they're breaking stuff you might as well take it to Walmart instead and pay half the price.

It comes with lube.

But seriously, that price is nuts. Full syn and OEM filter is less than $30 and 15 mins.
