I had dealer quotes ranging from $190 to $260, so I bought a filter off eBay and had a local shop change it for me for $85, which is less than the dealer wanted for just the oil. Hopefully the price will come down as aftermarket filters and additional approved oils become available. They used Kendall GT-1 Euro, which meets the ACEA C3 and Chrysler MS_11106 requirements.

$88.04 for 2 cases of factory fill with free shipping and $39.95 for the oem mopar filter shipped. $127.99 total and I'll have the piece of mind knowing some kid isn't forgetting to tighten my drain plug.

No one locally sells any brand of oil that meets Chrysler's specifications. The one exception is the local Dodge Dealer who sells the Pennzoil for $11.13 per quart and only sells quarts. I would really like to find gallon containers - any suggestions?

I had my first change last month (first one was free) and I believe the service rep said it cost 260 or 270 (canadian) for them to do it.

Fortunately, mine came with 4 freebies but the servicing dealer in Kodak, tn said it would have been $161. Looks like it varies greatly by area but it ain't cheap anywhere. If you're a diy'er, anomaly's or Katoom's finds are probably as good as it gets right now.

I just bought factory fill pennzoil ultra euro L off Amazon for 88.04 including shipping for (2) 6 packs of quarts. The better news is there are rebates on the bottles for 10.00 when you buy 5 or more quarts. So that's 20.00 in rebates! !

Wow, That's a deal. I would stock up. No such luck in Canada though.

Quote myself here - I've been hunting for this oil in Ontario and I found an oil dealer that can sell it. It comes in something called an EcoBox, that's 22.7 litres for $212 so that's $9.30 per litre. Best I've found so far. On top of that there is no echofee because it's a cardboard box and a plastic bag with a spigot similar to the way wine comes in a box. Since the valve keeps the bag air tight, you can keep the oil on the shelf as long as you want.

In Ontario we're charged $.16 per liter to pay for the disposal of the plastic jug, that's the ecofee.
