    I was so hesitate to take my car to small dealer near by my house (only 5 mins drive). But I took the chance and oh boy.. They did the oil change free under warranty and the sales person put a note on the car (No wash without customer approval).

    They even performed full inspection. They have earned my future business for sure.

    Make sure they put 6 quarts in. The other Hemis take 7 and I have seen many posts around the forums about dealers over filling. Also check to see if they used 0w/40 oil. Lot of complaints about dealers filling with 0w/20 like the 5.7 takes.

    Exactly 6 quarts (0W-40 oil) and He showed me the invoice ($0.00 due) before I left the dealership.

    So how was it that you weren't charged for an oil change??? Did you have your own oil & filter and what exact oil & filter was used on your HC if you don't mind sharing,thnx again and what a great dealership!!! Lastly, did they drain the oil cooler as well?

    that is great PR for the dealer who gets a customer that will advertise for them. and worthy of it.

    nice catch for a free visit to them

    There are some good dealers out there. I had my Challenger at Fields Chrysler, in Sanford Fl. to have some warranty work done. When I dropped it off they asked if I wanted the oil changed, it was getting close to the time to change it, so I told them to go ahead and do it(I had changed it the 3 previous times). When I picked the car up, I found out there was no charge for the oil change, which was a nice surprise. In my opinion, they are a class operation, and I don't mind driving 300 miles, one way, to get there.:D

    The Dealer I purchased my Kitty was considered "small" by most standards. They treated me excellent and did a wonderful 1st oil change. They actually have 2 Viper Tech's at their facility.....go figure.

    Our dealer gave us free oil changes for a year when we bought our Cat. They even transferred those to the dealer in Memphis since it is closer for us to go to.

    You can't put a price on a great SRT tech. Get to know him and treat him good. Pay dividends!!!!

    Have a great weekend Royal

    Bozos out here In SoCal charged me $117..wtf.. :mad::mad:

    Gave me some royal BS about hellcats/vipers not being eligible for this offer. But the only good part is that my dealership is very sensitive to customer concerns and doesn't accept the hellcats/vipers if the Srt level 3 tech is not around.

    Good to know there are some good old school dealers with values/ethics still out there.
