I would never go to one of those quick oil change stores. Too many bad reports.Getting close to my first oil change on a 2013. Purchased with 30K, had been mostly used on electric (lifetime mpg 185). May just take it to the dealer. Biggest concern is the drain period - I have always changed my own oil on other cars and I would let it drain overnight, then blow air into the fill port and get another tablespoon of the dirtiest oil out. The 30 - 60 second drain at oil change outfits is not sufficient, IMO.
Thanks, I may need that in a few decades.Related DIY oil change thread with pics: http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?86970-Changed-my-Transmission-oil
I've seen and heard too many horror stories about those places, so if I can't get the oil change done at the dealer, I do it myself. If you do go to one, make sure they have the correct oil filter first, it only fits the Gen 1 Volt and the ELR in the USA.Hello
Just wondering if anyone takes their Gen 1 Volt to a quick lube? My Chevy dealer is so backlogged it's ridiculous.
