2013 Dodge Dart: Oil Change Service

December 12, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

The "Oil Change Due" indicator came on recently on our 2013 Dodge Dart as Dan mentioned. So I made a service appointment at my local Dodge dealer.

In this case, it was Fresno Chrysler. The overall experience was pleasant and quick enough, and perhaps a little more worldly that I might have expected. Since the dealership has a Fiat component as well, there was an interesting mix of Jeeps, 500s, minivans and some Dodge Challengers and Chargers.

Total cost was $56.46 for the oil change. In hindsight, I think we should have had a tire rotation done as well, but my service advisor didn't mention it and it didn't occur to me at the time. But that should be easy enough to remedy.

    $56 for an oil change? Jeeze, that's way to much for such a simple job, and on an economy car none the less. Glad I change my own oil lol

    Wow--compared to the 20K service on the Porsche, where your coupon discount alone would cover 3-4 oil changes in the Dodge.....

    The SA didn't advise a tire rotation so you didn't get it done? If he's reading this post he's kicking himself for not recommending the $250 injector and intake manifold cleaning and the paint protectant.
