Where should i go to get an oil change?
I just bought a used acura rsx with 55k miles on it now. Its been about 5k miles and i think i need to get my first oil change. I called the dealer and they charge like $40! So i dunno where to go now, i thought about going to jiffy lube but so many people say they don't do the job right so i dunno. I need to find a place that will use 5w-20 motor oil too.... opinions would be appreciated.

You shouldn't go to Jiffy Lube nor EZ Lube because you're likely to get ripped off. The employees are pressured to maintain very high "average tickets" in order to keep their jobs. Time and again, it's been shown to be part of their corporate culture, not just a couple of isolated incindences. WalMart isn't a good... More

Any of the oil change places work. Find a coupon or look for a special.

Yeah I would go to the Dealer and get it changed. I would trust Acura/Honda before I would trust Jiffy Lube. I found out once that Jiffy Lube didn't change my Oil filter and that was it for me.

Wal mart does oil changes. Whoever does it make sure they chang the oil filter and check your fluids. They will always wherver you go try to up sell you. Stick with the oil change only. Check your yellow pages. I recommend an oil change every 3000 miles

well I don't know where you are. here in the middle of illinois there is a quick lube place every 20 feet it seems like. just tell them what you want done and what weight oil you want to use before they start.

at walmart oil changes are $19-$30 dollars

I only trust myself, and the dealer, to do oil changes. I don't mind paying $40, as they check more things that I don't know how to check, while they're at it, as a preventive maintenance issue. $40 over 3 months works out to about 44 cents a day.

The cheapest place possible. Changing oil is a "no brainer" and as long as you get 10W-30W oil or add a can of 40W if it is an older car then you are good to go... More

any where u go should be fine but what you should do when you go is ask for oil from a bottle. not bulk oil the bottled oil is thicker than the bulk oil is and gives a little more protection. they might charge a couple bucks more but its worthit.

I suggest having the dealer change it if that's all they charge. You would get the right oil and a quality brand filter. They usually wash and vacuum the car as well. It's well worth the price. Also....I would not recommend Wal-Mart auto centers. They have people working there who have no business touching a car.

Do not go to a franchised oil change place. They will lure you in with some fancy offer and then try to sell you all kinds of unneeded services... More

well anywhere you go will be around 30-40 bucks. You can do it yourself if your saavy enough. 40 bucks aint much. I have an Audi and my oil change is expensive. Heres a link for an 02-06 RSX. http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread.php?t=374897 the pictures dont show up but it aint hard.

I wouldn't trust Jiffy Lube to change my oil. Or any of those Quick Lube places. And don't bring it to Wal-mart to have it done... More
