I kinda miss managing that shop after talking about it.
And then cars like our Hyundai Sonata, you can change the oil filter from the top of the engine bay. Only thing you have to do under the car is pull the plug.

I think it's funny you guys think the dealership can't mess things up or doesn't hire noobs at times. The only benefit to the dealership is documentation of service. I don't trust them anymore than Walmart unless I'm watching.

It's not that dealers can't mess up it's the fact that if they do they will fix it because your warranty is through them. Nothing would be a bigger headache then wal mart/ jiffy lube messing up your car and get into a blame game between them and ford over who's at fault.

You've missed the point. If the OP doesn't want to change his oil himself, the dealer would be the place to go. It's a good deal with the coupon they have and the services they provide, and his car is a still-under-warranty 2014.

Others will argue, but I'm running the Motorcraft semi-synthetic. That's what came from the factory so that's what I'm running. That runs $49.99 with The Works coupon. I change every 5,000 miles. My car is not run hard.

Full synthetic at the dealer I go to is 55. In Cleveland, at my preferred group (where I buy my cars) it is 100.

I change mine with full synthetic for less than $35 in my driveway.

Also, just because something is under warranty doesn't mean they HAVE TO fix it *coughMT82cough*. Once again, there are lots of ups and downs anywhere you go. I'd rather let someone I know change it, than some random guy at any place.

I change my own oil in all my vehicles except the Mustang. My reasoning is, that is the only vehicle I have that has a warranty, and not that I am looking for them to fix anything in particular, I just feel better they are checking the car over on a regular basis in case there is something not right that I may not notice right away that could be fixed under warranty. It's not that expensive to have them do it, and gives me a little extra peace of mind. When the warranty is up, I will probably be laying under that one also.

This pretty much sums up my situation as well. I mark my filter so I know if they changed it or not . They use only Ford filters and oil and it's on record for being maintained . My 04 Nissan is a different story, I do that myself.

I'm really fortunate

My Ford dealer has a seperate buiding that only does oil changes, Tire (rotatoins/replacements/repairs on tires) and when they do the oil filter change the person doing the job checks everything on your car. I always ask for my guy "Willie" and he is the one I always have servicing my Mustang. Never ever a problem at all.
I know not all Ford dealers have this so you need to be aware of how they service your car. I do think that going to a Ford dealer is way safer and better then going to Walmart or some thief Jiffy Lube place that hires untrained monkeys to mess up your car big time. At least they train the one's at a Ford dealer on how to do a service properly. And you know the filter will be changed.
