I think mine was $21 dollars plus tax. That was at my dodge dealership where I bought the car. I am not using synthetic at this time. Maybe after I get some more miles on it...unsure. I think that was the price if I scheduled it online. I think you save like $3 or something.

Find another dealer unless it's a quote for synthetic and even then it's high. My dealer charges 19.95 but I called and for the C it's 34.00 and he did'nt know why. Parts were 24.00 non synthetic, this is why I buy my own oil and filter and bring it in.

My dealer charges $25.99 for an oil change. Since the C takes 7 quarts I believe they charge $32. However, if you want synthetic it jumps to like $60! I wait until I get the coupon from my dealer in the mail and it ends up costing me something like $40 with syn. I have no problem paying extra for the syn but this is a little high.

You Hemi guys outta be sure to read the threads about oil viscosities on these engines. If you're using synthetic oil, it HAS to be 5W-20 viscosity. Prices are much higher because most Chrysler dealers do not have this oil in bulk so they have to purchase it in quart cases.

Using a different viscosity oil in your Hemis may very well cause sludge to build up within the springs which shut down the 4 cyliders during the MDS operation. That in turn would obviously void ANY warranty.
