Does anyone else receive coupons for oil changes from Nissan?

So I have not been back to the dealership since 2009. I refuse to pay $50 for an oil change from them for regular 5W-30 oil. It's a rip off. So all I have purchased from them in 2010 is an oil filter for the Versa for $8.00, and then did the oil change at home.

Funny thing is now they are sending me tons of coupons. First couple ones were for $7.00 off an oil change (still too pricey with this coupon) and the newest one is for a complete oil change for $29.95.

The coupon is only good until June and I don't need an oil change before then. I'm hoping they send me some during the winter when it's too cold to be outside changing the oil, lol ;)

I got 5 free oil changes with my extended warranty. Four coupons came with my ASP booklet, and then the one time I was there using a coupon they made me wait for hours to get it done, so they handed me back the coupon. Hence why I got one extra oil change for free.

I am going to keep waiting to see if the coupons that arrive get cheaper and cheaper. So far the $29.95 is the cheapest one yet. If I get one of those in the winter I'll use it then. For now, I don't put that many kms on the car, so I don't need the oil changes very often.

My next one will be cheap. I got a jug of oil for $6.00 at Canadian Tire and I'll buy the filter from the dealer for $8.00. That will make my oil change $14 :D

If it was under $20 I would go for sure. But $50 is just too expensive to justify taking her there. It's not like they do anything special besides change the filter and oil. I might just take her there in the winter if I have to since it's too cold to change it at home. But only if I get a decent coupon.

Ya it's just regular 5W-30 oil and they charge $50. Our dealerships charge WAY too much for labour over here in Canada. It takes them no time at all to change the oil, yet they charge $50. From now on, it's changed at home; except in the winter. I might take it to the dealer in the winter (if I get a decent coupon) or somewhere else that has it for $19.99.

I bought one jug of oil, 5W-30 from Canadian Tire and it was the perfect size. Versa takes one full jug of oil (at least for my 1.8L).

I have a new jug already at home waiting for the next oil change. It was on sale for $5.99 plus tax, so I had to get one, lol.

Really? That's not too bad then.

There are places here who will change it for $20 ... It just sucks that none of them allow appointments to be made; and I don't have the time to line up hours before they open for a 'potential' spot that day.

For the most part my oil changes will cost me about $20 to change at home.

Winter might be the only time I take it somewhere to get it changed.

Generic oil filter for $80. Now that's a crazy price. Dealer recommended regular oil so that's all I put in. As long as the oil is clean I don't care what brand it is. I just buy whatever is on sale. Lol
