    I have got a years worth of oil changes from the dealership I bought the car at, which is really just 2 oil changes if you go by the service guide.

    I'm curious what they charge but there is a closer dealer to me once I exhaust these 2 freebies so I'll see what they charge.

    If you buy your own oil will Kia dealerships do the oil change for you minus the cost of the oil?

    I'll wait to see what the cost is here in AZ as I know we don't need the heavier weight oils out here. We get hot temps not cold ones. I would think 10W30 synthetic would be cheaper.

    In case of oversight, did you manage to see the bottom line?
    Yeah. What’s wrong with Royal purple. I’ve never used the engine oil. Just the manual tranny fluid and rear diff fluid. I’ve used Valvoline SynPower for the last 8 years and I love it. $25 for a 5 quart jug at Walmart

    My opinion about RP was due to their superfluous marketing hype back when it was first introduced in the market. I have read somewhere in another forum about a racing engine builder having lubrication problems when running Royal Purple, but that was several years ago. I formed that opinion then and I have not ventured into finding new information recently. I have no personal experience regarding engine failure due to lubrication involving Royal Purple motor oil. I can imagine that nowadays their motor oils work just fine in sportbikes as proven by Spider55. I have no idea about RP gear oils or transmission fluids since I use other brands.

    If I go by the service guide it will take me between 12 & 18 months to get my first oil change being that I only put around 3 to 5 thousand miles a year on my car. Being here in Arizona I split my oil changes up in thirds, so every 4 months I change it. I don't care if it needs it or not. Here in Arizona the heat breaks down the oil in your car if your in traffic a lot. What I do in the summer and winter is as soon as I get home from driving anywhere is park my car in the garage an lift the hood up to let the heat in the engine bay escape, so the heat doesn't cook all the rubber and plastic pieces in the engine bay. I did that with my Optima SX and everything still looked an felt new.

    If you buy your own oil Kia will not change your oil. If you buy your own oil you will have to find a shop to change your oil.

    If my memory serves me correctly, I do be leave, you use heavier weight oil in the summer and a lighter weight oil in the winter because heavier weight oil in the winter wouldn't lubricate your engine on a cold start and your engine would have to work way to hard too pump it through the cars engine.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong!!!!!!!!!!!
