Where do you guys go for oil changes usually ? Your local mechanic ? And how much do you typically pay for regular or synthetic?

I use to go to the dealership, until they stopped taking walk-ins and require you to book an appointment.
Now it's done at my convenience in my garage.

I used to do it myself ... Mitsubishi Oil Filter ($10) + 1 jug of Castrol Full Synthetic 0W20 ($40 when it is on Sale).

Now ... I just go to my friend's shop in Richmond Hill ... Oil Filter + Euro Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 0W20 ... $40 ...
Stress is caused by NOT fishing enough.

Oil Changers is wonderful. They add a lot of nice little touches like cleaning your doors and wiping your windshields, plus it's pretty cheap. Only takes like 10 minutes.

When I had my RSX. I used 4.5 litres of synthetic and oil filter for about 40 bucks. Didn't @ home
I got a Venza now. It uses 6.5 litres and oil filter
It's about 60 bucks or more.

So now I goto Toyota. 60 bucks taxes in and free car wash.
Last time I took it to Toyota for an oil change. They greased my door and hinges and added air to my tires And checked for any leaks . Which usually cost $$$. But it was free with the oil change. That was nice of them.
