Change it your self if you are not already mobile one and a filter for under $30. you are not going to hur anything going to regular oil. Just pay closer attention to change intervals and keep enough oil in it.

Unless you drive in severe conditions, you can go 7500 miles without voiding the warranty. I'm using synthetic now and I plan to change my oil every 7K or so to keep the warranty. If your car is not under warranty, you could probably go 10K with synthetic. I'm using the Mobil 1 advance fuel economy to save money. At 21000 miles per year, I would change my oil 3 times, and spend about $80-90, but also save about $36 in gas (according to the calcuator at www.mobiloil.com; That's about $15-20 per oild change. PS: Never go more than 6 months on sythectic unless you are using the special kind that goes 15K or one year (Mobil extended performance). Walmat sels synthetic cheap, but I don't about going 10K on it. I trust mobil 1 to do that.

I starting to like this forum. Now if Tiger Woods can say out of trouble maybe I will get some work done.

I paid $22.00 for Mobil 1 advance fuel economy (5 quarts) at Walmart. The walamart synthetic is $17.00for a 5 quart. The new math says I will spend 2X22=44 44+36(filters)=80. That's $80 for 3 oil changes (buying in bulk). Subtract the savings in gas ($36). That's a total cost of $44.00. That's Less than $15.00 per oil change.

That's a really good price. I bought the 5 quart jug at walmart and went to autozone to buy the mobil 108 oil filter. The sentra and the versa use the same size oil fitler.
