That's a heck of a deal if it pans out. Firestone isn't known for letting folks out without some up-selling, so stick to your guns and go for the slick(!) oil change!Wink

I wouldn't take a roller skate to our local Firestone...besides...I can do a full-synthetic oil change for less than half of that (especially with the Pennzoil/Mobil 1 SD that fly through here on occasion).

$40 for any oil change is robbery. I spend no more than $15 using synthetic including filter when I do it myself. The Fumoto valve has been one of the best investments I've made

Yes. I agree with most of them above. Doing oil change is a piece of cake. All you need is 2 jacks, a wrench to remove drain nut and wrench to remove filter. If you do it once, it wont take more than an hour there on.

Keep in mind, while pouring new oil constantly check the oil level by removing dip stick. I over filled the engine oil which caused significant mileage drop. Had to raise the car and drain some of that oil which solved the problem.

Most importantly dispose the oil at a local recycling center.

I'm going to be doing my own oil changes now that I have a car worth doing it on, but it can be a pain - I don't knock people who want the convenience. For example, my Charger SRT has a floor pan which you have to remove to get to the filter - not hard but a bit of a pain for the less mechanically inclined.

Not to mention a safe place to park for an hour while you crawl under and out from under your car for that hour. How about folks in townhomes?...folks with street parking? I'm not crawling under a car that sits on jacks...now I need ramps and a place to store them.

It would take some pretty slick buying to land enough full synthetic and a decent oil filter for "no more than $15" as the other detractor said. Then there's transporting the old oil to a proper place for recycling...all to maybe save $25 once or twice a year???

I'm going to say a proper oil change with full syn for $40 still rates as slick for most folks.

A $40 full syn oil change doesn't rate a slick even without a rebate.

what you need to do: walk in and ask for a full synthetic oil change for 54.99 (retail 69.99 up to 5qt) and say NO to any check (CVI-complete vehicle inspection or Courtesy check). When the front guy prints out the work order, ask for the yellow rebate slip and use your phone to do the rebate while waiting. That's it. Done and easy. Don't talk/ ask/ complain/ demand too much over here. They cannot up sell you if they don't have your permission to check (but if the part is broken you should appreciate they point it out for you but some people think Firestone is up selling lolz - it's Broken no matter what)

p/s: Call in to make an appointment if you don't have time.

This is a slick deal for me considering I have no clue how and no time to change my own oil. Got it done Friday. The guy came back and said my filters were a little dirty but didn't recommend changing them now and didn't recommend anything else be done even though Subaru recommends certain things at 30k miles. It's nice to have an honest Firestone at least.

You can do this for roughly $30 - $32 max.
Buy 5QT of Pennzoil Full Synthetic Oil from Walmart for $22.50 and Submit a Pennzoil rebate online for $10 - for a net cost of $12.50 for oil.

Firestone or Monroe usually have a promotion for $14.99 - 16.99 regular oil change. Tell them you want to use your own oil.

I don't pay more than $30 for a full synthetic oil change - also got 4 cans of 5QT oil already, as the rebate ends 12/31/2016.

AFAIK, Firestone will not take any parts from customers (oil/filters/brake pads/........). They used to do it in the past and that's what I did too. They recently changed the policy because of some stupid people who tried to trick Firestone to get their whole car repaired for free.

Does the Firestone receipt specify that Pennzoil oil was used? I want to make sure I'm able to get this rebate.

yes it does. it will show Penz Platinum Full Syn.... or something like that. you can ask them to show you the box of the oil that they use which is exactly what Walmart is using right now.
