I have to take my company lease car in for a "professional" oil change.



No, they won't let me change it myself, or do any other maintenance work.  Everything has to be recorded and paid for on an Enterprise Lease "maintenance card".




Do any of these oil change places actually suck less than the other oil change places that also suck?  




If you don't change your own oil, who do you recommend?

Dealership.  They usually don't charge much for oil changes.

company lease? and they won't let you do it yourself?  well then...



take it to the most convenient place for you.


forget dealerships, no point in saving money which you trade off for your time waiting there.

If you're not paying for it, take it to the dealer.

       Time It lube, if there is one where you are.






Every time I tried to go to the dealer for an oil change, there was a 1+ hour wait

Dealership unless you have a contract with another company.

ETA Unless it is a dodge eco-diesel.
I think Chrysler wants $300/per oil change for those.
It costs over $100 just to buy the oil from amazon.

The few jobs I've had where I had a company vehicle, I was given a gas card to fill up anywhere, and an ARI maintenance card for tires and oil changes. I went to whoever took ARI cards.








Although, it sucked when trying to get new tires on the truck. We hauled a lot of a heavy shit to oilfield locations. We, at least, needed AT tires. But you'd have some ass-fuck from ARI on the other side of the country tell the tire shop that you don't need 4 new tires and that you don't need AT tires. Instead, they try to only pay for 2 new street tires








Luckily the tire shop guys had some brains....obviously it's very unsafe to drive a 2500HD truck with heavy parts to oilfields on nearly bald tires.

I had a fuel card but tires and oil changes had to be done at certain places.    Three tire shops and four oil change places.
Anything else needed approval and I would be reimbursed.

I got paid but I had to do it on my days off.  
After working two weeks straight I did not want to sit at a dealer.  I just drop it off.

Company car you say?





Walmart super tech filter and oil..........around $20 total do it yourself. Pocket the rest

My company truck mostly gets taken to the dealer.

However, the dealer is about the slowest place to take a vehicle for an oil change. Last oil change took them 1.5 hours to get it back to me. I browsed the car lot while there and for a fairly loaded F150 you could buy a Super Duty with similar features and much more towing capacity. I wander what Ford's profit margin is on the new F150s.

If I don't have the time I take it to one of the other approved shops.

Ours is through GE Fleet, we had ARI, but company switched over to GE.
