Price for a oil change?

My dealership offered me 6 oil changes/tire rotations for $200. Worth buying?

I will be picking up my car soon and it was an offer they gave me. I wanted to see if it was worth it.

good deal for oil change. I wouldnt let that dealer touch my car....tire rotations is funny. Did they try to offer a flux capacitor? Not trying to be mean but you want people who know what they are doing touching your car.

Helllllll yes take that deal...one oil change is 80...you can't get tire rotations on an SS. So since the dealer is dumb ask for 10 oil changes for 200 bucks and no tire rotations.

I don't understand. What do you mean a you can't rotate tires on SS? Why not?

Edit: "The 20" and the 21" tires on the Camaro can NOT be rotated. They are unidirectional tires and the are rims are staggered meaning the rims in the back are bigger then the fronts." NEVERMIND!

I just had my first (and only free) oil change at my dealership. It was $95.00. I wish my dealer offered what you are getting.

Wow. Glad my dealership does free lifetime oil changes with the purchase of a Chevy.

Worth it for the oil changes make sure there is not expiration date.

I'm sure I may sound like a complete idiot, but aren't you supposed to at least swap the fronts with each other and the rears with each other for the "rotation"?

Apparently it's every 5k miles for the next 6 changes and they adjust from when I bring it in. So, no expiration.

The tires are directional, so rotating them will negatively affect the way they were designed to rotate.

Also, change the oil yourself. Use Mobil 1 Extended Performance, you only have to change it every 15,000 miles.

Thank you. I'll talk to my dealership and get a better deal

Absolutely. I don't know what the hell I was thinking. Oh, wait a minute, I do;

I did my own.
Bought Mobil 1 at Walmart for $17 and $25 for 5 quart containers.
Bought filter from dealer.
No need to pay dealer $100 plus for oil-change IMHO
Make sure you get premium oil from dealer!

I have a quick question... just bought a 2013 2ss rs auto last month for the wife. We live in the midwest and i was wondering how the pirelli p zero tires perform on dry streets when it's below 30 degrees ? Have not had it out lately because of the crap weather.
