Dealer is trying to tella co-worker that his patriot needs a $90 dollar oil change, costs me $12.50 for my Libby doesn't sound right to me does the patriot need synthetic or is the dealer ripping him off.

Any info is appreciated

That is way too much unless maybe something elce is involved. They might take 5w20 or 5w30 - possibly synthetic - depends what the owners manual says. You should tell him to check another place. Syn is more expensive, but not that expensive.

I know on the KJ the dealer sends me flyers and they will do it for $25.99 or something like that (under $30). That's 5 qts of dino and filter. I do mine myself though.

It requires 5w-20 oil which is always a synthetic blend or full synthetic.$90 is a bit much but the norm around here in CO is about $30-$40 for a 5w-20 oil change(5qts or under).

I like to do mine myself but it is actually cheaper for me to let my father-in-law to do it. I can't even buy the oil for the price he changes it for
