It seems like a popular thing these days to give one or two for free. I got the extended warranty which includes all of my oil changes/tire rotations for a set limit of time (which I can't remember now, possibly the length of the warranty).mistashady said:so first time oil change is free at the dealership?
Royal Purple is garbage in daily driven vehicles. I'll never use it in any of mine. The motor I'm running now in my truck was used for 50Kmiles on Royal Purple before I got it. The whole inside of the engine was coated in a thin purple film. Not something I want on the inside of my motor. I run Mobil1 synthetic in my truck, and have free oil changes for a year from my dealer. After my one year of free oil changes i up, I will be doing my own oil changes using Mobil1 synthetic in the car as well. I could care less if it helps with gas mileage. I know for a fact it will extend the life of the motor and that's all I care about.boostdog said:i did mine with using castrol 5w-20 and a cheap filter for 19.29 and took 10 min. 1/2 which was wainting for the oil to drain. simple as pie. for those of you that have used synthetic has your gas mileage gone up? i used royal purple in my neon and it did nothing for the gas mileage or, from what i can tell, performace. which is why i did not ponie up and buy syntheic, but wonder if i should on the next change
The free oil changes is a dealer offered incentive. I don't think it has anything to do with the factory or even DC extended warranty.mistashady said:so if u dont got the extended warranty you have to pay for an oil change at the dealership then?
The Gold warranty includes oil changes, tire rotations, and a few other maintenance things. It makes up for a good portion of the cost of the warranty (Compared to what I was paying at Mr. Lube over the life of the warranty anyway).HSKR said:The free oil changes is a dealer offered incentive.

I think the Gold Plus Warranty is a Canadian only thing. You get free oil changes for 5 years, plus the Bumper-to-bumper is extendted to the full 5 years as well.HSKR said:The free oil changes is a dealer offered incentive.
