The week before I was looking at how much it would cost to get a block heater done on my Micra(2017). I went to two dealerships in my city and one could only give me the price of the part. I had to talk to three other people to get the cost of labor and how much. I talked to one other person and they told me to go and talk to another person to find out labour and I got irritated and left. Before I left I found it was $69.99 for an oil change, fine. The second dealership got me the cost of the block heater, labor and cost, good. I asked how much it would cost and I was told "it would be $79.99". I asked "why so much for 3.5L of oil on a 1.6?" They women replied "we use full synthetic and it's recommended for the 2017's." The manual says "5w-30 for oil" but nothing about synthetic blend or a full synthetic oil.
So I am wondering, is that what others have paid to get their oil change? Do the dealers use full synthetic or is it 50/50? Do you find it cheaper just to do it yourself?
