Question for those who take their TB to the dealer/quick lube for oil changes, what are yall paying per visit? I know I know changing oil is easy and I've done it myself for most all my vehicles and most all of the ones on my last Z71, but since I've gotten my TB I've just been taking it to my local Chevy dealer and it normally runs me about $86 bucks with full synthetic. Wanted to see what other might be paying.

Mine runs about the same with tire rotation etc. I know I could do it myself but I would probably only save what like $15-20 total and then have to do everything to change it and dump the oil etc

my same thoughts, I would always have like 2 or 3 tubs of oil sitting in the back yard lol
 
I'm old but still do my own routine maintenance. Only because I haven't found a place I trust. Even a simple oil change can be an adventure. Last week my neighbor had his oil changed at a dealer. On the freeway ride home he started smelling oil and smoke. Pulled over and popped the hood. Found the oil cap sitting inside the engine bay and oil sprayed everywhere.
No thanks

cant agree more! that was the biggest hesitation when taking it in to chevy vs doing it at home. I found a guy in service and hes been with Chevy for 15+ years and he's the only guy I have or will deal with. Been going to him for about 5 years now, he saved my ass when the AC went out in my 16' Z71, he helped me fight GM to cover the part that failed because it was under a class action lawsuit. GM wouldn't cover the whole thing but my total dropped from $1200 to $200 thanks to my service guy.
 
$86 at a dealer sounds pretty reasonable, I would have expected it to be higher.
yea $86 after tax aint bad at all considering the material cost if I want to the local auto parts store and bought 8 qts and a filter. Few bucks more and someone gets dirty for me and gets rid of the old oil easy day. plus side there's a record of services with GM
 
I pay 90-110 depending on which dealer i take it to and if they have any service "coupons" available to use. it's usually closer to 90 if i opt out of the tire rotation.
discount tire does free tire rotation.
 
I currently do my own oil changes and I agree with some here, I don't trust the dealer for any work unless it is a recall or warranty work. I have had my fare share of loose/leaky oil filters, and missing lug nuts from when I get tires rotated. I even have 3 free oil changes from them and I am debating whether or not to have them do it. I went from a RAM 1500 to the LT TB and from what I can see the TB is way easier to do the oil change & filter than the RAM. The oil drain and oil filter are literally side by side instead of up and twisted inside the engine bay. That was a clean up job every time I did the oil change on my old RAM. This will take me 15 minutes now with the time being more for draining and filling. I actually will look forward to my first oil change.
I typically don't spend more than $30 for the oil and filter and I use Mobile1 Full Synthetic typically.
Not to mention I like tinkering. Have to learn the new truck anyway.

I'm in the same boat. I took my wife's Terrain to a quick lube place, after noticing a bunch of oil all over the driveway, I got under there to check it out and the damn oil filter was loose enough to spin freely. I tightened it up and decided that I'll just go back to changing my own oil. I just had the motor replaced in my 21' TB after 41k miles (4 days after I bought it), it basically had a melt down...warped block and head (covered under powertrain warranty). I don't know exactly what caused it, but I've decided to go back to doing my own maintenance again. I changed the oil in the TB yesterday for the first time (doing it myself, not the first oil change ;) ) and it cost $64 for 10qt of oil (two 5qt jugs) and a filter. It usually costs me near $100 for an oil change at the quick lube places around here.

I have a 19 TB since 8-02-19. Been having my mechanic do mine, about 90 bux
 
Have the TB w/ Duramax and just had my 2nd oil change, 1st was comp from dealersip, yesterday I paid $94 with the tire rotation. My service guy is a buddy and had left before I picked up the truck and when I texted bitching he laughed and said you wanted the pretty truck with the fancy diesel engine, that is employee price, full price for the Duramax would be $174. That is outrageous, but made the $94 sound OK. Also, I had oil changed on my wife's Expedition at NTB (which was just bought by Mardis) and their oil change for long life oil went from $50 w/ rotation to $110, I had coupons and again a discount for being regular customer brought it to 84 for 7 quart oil change. The NTB guy said under the new management most oil changes went up at least 50% for labor and their bulk oil prices have increased a few times this year to almost $5/quart for synthetic blend, Full synthetic is much more. Just more of the supply chain $$ grab.
