I am due for my 3 month service. The dealer wants $45 for an oil change. I was going to go to Sears, but the car is a lease and I am worried about any damage. Where do you guys go?
Also, I want my tires rotated, but the dealer says they won't do it until the 6 month/7k service. My steering feels funny when cornering, but the dealer doesn't seem to take it seriously. A mechanic drove the car around the block and said the car is fine.
that's the thing with dealers. everything is fine unless u have to pay!
i have the same situation and im doing oil change at a local shop. i dont think there's anything to break during the process unless they havent done it before... actually even if they havent, it's pretty straight forward process
go to walmart, get the giant jugs of oil and a mobil 1 filter and do the oil change yourself .
or as suggested you can try a Nissan dealer if you want to save some money.
oh and I am assuming you have a coupe.... if you you probably have a staggered set up on your tires. (skinnier tires up front and fatter tires in the back_) if that is the case ... you CAN'T Rotate your tires!!

Check this out guys. I was at the Infinti dealer the other day for some rattle elimination and asked about the oil change, They wanted $50 plus tax for a regular oil change and when I asked about putting in Mobil 1 syth. they told me $85. That is nuts. When I was in San Diego it cost me $20 when i brought my oil and filter. There is no way I am spending $85 on an oil change. i am going to check out the Nissan cost and maybe do it myself if the price is high.

The only reason why I go to the infiniti dealer is they clean the inside of my car and wash it. I figure 20 dollar oil change, 20 dollar car wash. Very helpful when you live in an apartment without a hose.
Other than that Nissan dealership sounds like a good plan if you don't want to do it yourself.
