I recently received a coupon for a free oil change for Mr. Handsome’s truck and eagerly called the dealership to make an appointment. Before ended the call, I wanted to confirm with the representative that the service would be completely free. She said that the oil change would be free but that there could be a separate $100 charge if the dealership deemed that the engine air and cabin air filters needed to be changed. Based on the mileage, it seemed very likely that this would be necessary.
This sounded ridiculous to me, and I was determined to find a cheaper way. I wasn’t about to do a DIY oil change, but I did have faith in my ability to change a couple filters. After a quick YouTube search and less than 10 minutes of my time, I successfully removed both filers. The replacements cost less than $40 at the auto parts store, so I saved $60. Talk about a successful Saturday!
