That's what your parts department will sell them to you for...that's not what they cost. Since I do my own oil changes I buy 6 at a time from my dealer and get them for nearly half that each. See if another dealer in your area will sell them to you for less -- or shop on-line.It was free so I figured I'd take advantage. When they were done I asked how much the oil filters for my car cost. The dude said $9.
Guess I won't be using Kia filters
That's all...Just had to tell someone those darn filters were $9
Agreed !It's only $9 bucks every 6 months....not terribly expensive.
This goes to show miles are more important than months in determining when to do the oil change.@Spicyred : I did my first change (5000 miles) after 2 months !
U go wrong there, mate...I guess those who don't want to change their own oil because it is dirty and a waste of time wouldn't do any mods either for the same reasons.
Vehicle was bought 10-29-10. 1st oil change on 12-27-10 with 5,314 miles. Thats almost 2 months. I wish it were only every 6 months. Then having to drive out of my way to get to the dealer wouldn't seem so bad I suppose.It's only $9 bucks every 6 months....not terribly expensive.
