What are the prices at Mr Lube?

I need to have my oil changed before a trip to Kingston this weekend and need something quick!

Also, should I be changing oil every 5000km on a 97 cavalier with 200+ clicks?

Thanks

Congrats for being the most useless poster in the thread!

Thanks for nothing.

Thanks to everyone else who posted. I did go to Mr Lube and ended up getting pushed to buy an air filter for 19$ (I know I know).

Oil change was 47$ I think but at least I know I have brand new oil in the car for the trip.

At the end of the day, my time was worth more than saving on the oil change. 20 minutes and it was all done.

actually, that post was THE most useful post here.

Look at the amount of time spent on this thread in the hopes of getting an answer that could have been reached by following the advice you bash.

And in the end, you got raped ... some intelligent planning on doing the oil change some time before the trip, not last minute, would have saved you time and money.

i guess depends on type of oil you need. i used to pay around $50 for synthetic oil and filter.
I'm driving a diesel Golf and at Mr. Lube it runs roughly $100 plus taxes. I go to a cheaper place down the road and it still runs $90 all in. That's for synthetic and an OEM filter. I can do a little better milage wise between changes because its synthetic, but its still dear. Ow.

If you can, I'd suggest asking the shop you now go to how much they charge if you supply the oil and filter (or just the oil if you're ok with the brand of oil they use) or call around to check other shops nearby. Keep and eye out for some of the sales that can be had on the Mobil 1 or another option Esso XD-3 (in another thread it was mentioned that this can be found / purchased through your local distributor - check the esso website for lubricant distributors in your area). Half the brands of synthetic used by garages/dealers aren't really the good stuff (yet they're happily charging the premium price).
