Yes for all, or most brands. There might be fine print to check. They changed the oil in my Honda,

Quote from Slickd3aler :
Why can't they offer this to first responders and nurses as well? This is a whole lot better than the measly discount on crap for first responders and nurses.
Mazda did offer this to healthcare workers in spring 2020, and was valid for non-Mazda owners as well. In fact, Mazda sent me two coupons, 1 for each Mazda we own, and I was able to use them both for each car even though there's only one healthcare worker in the family.

The only negative was they wouldn't include a tire rotation and wanted to charge $25!

Quote from bud8jr :
Sad that the indoctrination daycare camps at the high school level don't really have vocational or auto mechanics anymore. Just another way to dumb down America's youth. Highest cost per capita with the lowest test results of all industrialized countries. They deserve nothing more than a little sand in the crankcase.
Auto mechanics has become an almost college level subject now because of the amount of computerization that has happened over the last 25 years. Basic auto maintenance should be taught as part of home economics together with living within your means and how to eat healthily. Is home economics even a thing now?

Too many people in the US don't want to invest in the next generation for the same reason they don't want universal health care. They live for today, f' tomorrow, and f' everyone else. Smilie

Two dealers in my area. One lets you choose the "Essential car care" option as a service but is booked literally to the end of the year.

The other just doesn't offer it.

We have a couple cars that still get complimentary oil changes. The dealer (Honda) is booked a good 2 months out, even for really simple stuff. I asked them what was going on and they said basically they are short "a dozen" people to do simple services. Also people getting back to commuting more = higher demand that exacerbates the issue.

Well, I think there really should be a couple levels.

First level is really basic stuff that is frankly DIY - oil, filter changes, maybe brake pad changes, etc. Doesn't require much thought, really, easy to train. Second level is more diagnostician-level stuff, or items that require longer periods of time or more complicated disassembly.

Pro tip: always always be cautious about the so called " free multi point inspection " that comes free or cheap oil change deals ! Most dealer throw this in with $20 oil changes . This is their way of scamming you and ripping you off . They will always find some very bad things about your engine that needs urgent repairs that will cost hundreds even thousands ! They do this even on new vehicles when you go for oil change . Just say NO to free inspection scams! Just change the oil !

Just be ready to say no to whatever upsell they try to get you on. Mine was a throttle body cleaning that was going to cost hundreds. Surprised they didn't try the cabin air filter trick. All things you can do yourself because they don't want to scam you on something that would require them to actually do work.

The jeep dealer I took my car to does one of these 'multipoint inspections' which as it turns out, is just them checking the mileage of my car and the system telling them what should be worn and need replacing. I enjoyed the red X and 'fail' on my chart for a dirty cabin air filter that needed changing, something I had done just a month prior. They also had a yellow X and 'caution' for my engine air filter as it was getting dirty and would be at the end of it's life soon. I had changed that with the cabin filter.

My favorite though was the CPO bumper to bumper inspection at BMW. After getting it home I discovered that the rear seat heaters didn't work. Apparently the thorough inspection didn't include pressing buttons to see if the light came on. While playing with the button something caught my eye. Oh look, the entire underside of the rear seat was covered in food and wrappers. I mean completely covered on every inch of the underside. It was disgusting. Apparently that's not part of the check either nor is it part of the detailing process.

It took me about 2 decades to learn that dealers just need their "touch points" with customers, even if it means eating $15 on an oil change (their cost, not your price). If they can talk 1/5 of customers into an A/C service or a coolant flush, it's a win.

What value do you put on 1-3 hours of your day, anyway? Just consider it before you do this.

DIY or a reliable quickie lube is almost a always much better, quicker and cheaper.

The dealer I bought my car from gives free oil (but not labor) for life just to keep customers in touch but they so far (30k miles) haven't tried to sell me a single thing.

I usually change my own oil but during the winter I'll have them change it and it cost the same as doing it myself so I really like it.

Learn to change your own oil and don't let anyone else with a wrench within 10 feet of it.


I had a Camry for 10 years and only ever changed the oil, tires, and battery.

I'm sure there are good mechanics in this country but you generally won't find them just changing oil.
A good mechanic wouldn't let a car go for 10 years without checking and changing filters, spark plugs, transmission fluid, shocks, bushings, etc.

Coolant, brake fluid, tranny fluid, gear oil, etc do not last forever.

I need to do a state inspection as well anyway so I went to my local Mazda dealer. They did honor the offer (free oil change). 2-hr waiting time is a bit longer than I expected. Just FYI

After they complete the oil change they're going to tell you your car needs $800 in repairs.
