I don't know much about cars and I think it's actually costing me.
I usually take my car to get an oil change at Pep boy's because with my last car it was super cheap. it only cost me $19 at that time, BUT now that I got this cruze they are charging me $78 + tax for an oil change.
the employee told me its because they use a special high mileage synthetic oil made just for a Cruze and that the car itself takes a special filter that's cartridge shaped and cost over $20.
is this a real thing or am I being scammed?
I know my local Chevy dealership charges about the same amount for one but they charge that for any vehicle even if its a normal filter and oil. I never go to the certified dealership for anything because they charge you for that certification in their service almost as much as buying another used car.
