Dealer Oil Change deal

So I signed all my parpers for my car. The dealer offered me oil changes every 3000 miles for 900.00 for the first 60K miles. Thats 30 oil changes at 30 bucks a piece.

THATS A DEAL.

actually, it is 20 oil changes at $45. Way more than I'd pay (unless it was synthetic)

Make sure they're gonna put in synthetic oil, and at $45 an oil change with synthetic is an average price, not a huge bargain even tho the car takes (I think I heard 8 or 9 qts?) Also, after the first oil change, these cars really don't need an oil change every 3,000 using synthetic, it would be more like every 7,000-8,000 miles. Now if they're only gonna do it until 60,000 miles and you change your oil every 7,500 miles, you're at $100 per oil change. JMHO, but I don't feel this is any big bargain.

Oil changes are going to run you about 85.00 per change if you run Mobil 1.

That is what came in the car.
