I’ve run into this recently with customers that either opt for 2 years free maintenance (although you actually pay for it in your vehicle purchase price) or the manufacturer automatically gives free maintenance and you don’t have a choice.
A Facebook friend posted a picture his brand new Dodge Challenger and I commented that it needs AMSOIL if he wants it to last. The comment back was “maybe once the free oil changes are done.”
This got me to thinking. Many people believe they are getting a deal with these free oil changes. I would suspect that the dealership will be using whatever bulk oil they get for the lowest cost. Think about this, you just spent $20,000 to $60,000 on a new car or truck and you now want to scrimp on oil? I realize most people don’t keep cars as long as I do (7-10 years) but using a higher quality oil like AMSOIL will not only save money in the long run but also in the short run.
- Better fuel economy (3-5%)
- More efficient operation
- Starts easier in the winter
- Runs cooler in the summer
- Less engine wear
- No sludge and varnish build up
- Saves money
These are just a few examples of the benefits using a superior quality oil like AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants.
Personally, when I get a new vehicle I change it over to AMSOIL at the first oil change. This ensures that I have the best engine protection that money can buy. Many cars dealerships will be glad to change the oil using the oil I bring to them. Our Nissan dealership charges $10 if you bring your own oil (It’s worth it to me not to have to get dirty or dispose of the oil.)
I found an interesting article on the value of the so called “Free Oil Changes” that dealerships offer. You may enjoy this article: The Value of Free Maintenance Offers on New Cars
It is my hope that people who are spending a lot of money when buying a new car will make a conscious decision to Move Up to AMSOIL and forgo the so called “Free Oil Changes.”
BTW, our local Toyota Dealers offers AMSOIL oil changes and we figured out it would cost less than $15 to upgrade to the AMSOIL XL motor oil.
Start using AMSOIL today. Look up your vehicle here:
