Get a good oil change, and not a cheap one. I use Autobahn in Manotick, and Autovation in Kanata (Stittsville? Not sure where one ends and the other begins). Both will do a good job.

Why not take it to Oil Changers on Merivale? Cheap and that's all they do, plain old simple oil change with lube & filter. They just want you in and out and that's it. Not to mention when changed the oil a few times in old cars, they always showed me the oil and new oil on the dipstick to show me.

For me with the new car, I will do dealer only encase I plan on selling so I can get top dollar.

Order filters online, wait for oil sale at CT or Wally World and DIY! Help me with my shed and you can use my garage...

I worry about the filters used at these places. For those with regular, all-in-one filters, the filters these places use often have cardboard drainback valves. Then there's the issue of whether or not they have the correct crush washer.

Lastly, by the time you get out of there filled with whatever synthetic they use, you're getting close to the same amount of money I get charged at Autobahn (Autovation's more spendy, but also more convenient scheduling-wise). Todd has done my oil and filter with the appropriate synthetics for cheaper than I can buy the oil alone.
