How much are the dealers charging for the oil change in the HEMI?
What brand oil does the dealer use?

I did the first one myself. I used Castrol 5w20, 2.39 a quart at Pep
Boys and a Fram PH16 oil filter, $4.99. I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna keep doing them myself or let the dealer do it in the future.

Hey, I don't know how much people are being charged on oil changes.. I don't have to pay anything for oil changes because I got a service contract on our Durango... You can get either the dodge Lube Oil & Filter package which I think worked out to like 7 bucks per oil change.. You basicly get coupons to use.. You can do a 3000 or 6000 mile package.. Or you can do like we did and get the full scheduled mainenance package.. Does everything that the owners manual says to do at the scheduled intervals... I highly recommend looking in to this.. I think they say something about getting them within 120 days of vehicle purchase... But I think that kind of stuff is flexable.. Just see the finance department about them.. They don't like to offer them because they lose money on them.. But they are there to purchase..

dealer oil change = too much
just take the 30 minutes to do it yourself so you know it's done right and so you know exactly what's going into your car

I would recommend Mobil 1 synthetic and Mobil 1 oil filter

That's a good price considering I spent over $20 doing it myself.

Mine was $34.68. Break down was like this:

Filter:.............4.64
5w20 (5qt):...12.13
5w20 (2qt):.....5.40
shop supplies:..2.17
labor:.............9.00
tax:...............1.34

It was cheaper when I changed it myself at 1K miles - Fram filter and 7 qts of Mobile 1 5w20.

Love My dealer....$9.95 and every 6th ones free. Their reasoning is it keeps your car coming back so they cwn keep the service up to date...

That's kind of like the "less filling / taste great" debate.
If you change your oil every 3k, I don't think you can go wrong with regular.
