oil change price.

i`m due for my second oil change on my 09. last year i took it do my dealer for its 1st service and they tried to dick me with the price. to make a long story short i went out the door happily (with some hassle) for 60 bucks.

i emailed them for a quote and they came back with 170 bucks (cdn). I also wanted the secondary fuel filter changed and they quoted 80 bucks.

these prices seem kinda bloated. is there anyone in the Toronto area that has had a better price? I have emailed around a few dealerships and are awaiting replies.

thanks in advance.

I cant speak for that area but those prices dont seem abnormal. I pay $90 USD for an oil change and $170 for the fuel filters to be changed. It's a lot but from I understand that's actually cheaper than some dealers in my area. It's a whole lot cheaper to do it yourself but I have nowhere to work on my truck so im happy to pay someone else to do it.

125 here in memphis. Strongly suggest you try to find a place to do it yourself. You will save money and learn alot about your truck in the process. There is a bit of a learning curve the first time (fuel filter), but it gets down to a science eventually

A local Ford dealer in south Kansas City (not where I purchased my truck) offered a $699 life-time oil change good for 5,000 intervals where they also check (???) other fluids, wear and notify me of required service intervals. A bit pricey over do-it-yourself but I figure that having the truck in a Ford shop every 5,000 might be insurance in my pocket if something goes wrong.

Of course it's only good for current owner and only as long as that one dealer is in business. So life-time might be debatable.

$70 IS VERY CHEAP!, What do you pay for 16 qts of good quality oil alone? Dealer cost on Motorcraft 15w40 is 2.94 x 16 = 47.04 just for cost on the oil. Dealer cost on a Motorcraft oil filter is $17.40 . Thats $64.40 cost before you apply any labor and maybe a little profit, If you are getting it done For $70 I would check too see what they are using and who is doing it . IMO JIM

$100-$110 for oil changes is normal in my area. Most dealers want about the same for the fuel filters also.
