Oil changes at the dealer

Since I've had my 2500 Cummins, I have been doing oil changes at the dealer. Normally, I used to either do it myself, or go to one of those guick change places.
But this Dodge dealer here in Phoenix only charges $30 for an oil change on a diesel. Meanwhile all of the other dealers here charge more, a lot more!
Has anyone else had their oil changed on a Cummins at a dealer and how much did you pay?

Great article and info! What people fail to see is that today's engines are more reliable, powerful and technologically superior to the engines of even 10 years ago. Oil is the life beat of any engine proper type is imperative and you really need to be anal on changing the oil too. There are some draw backs with technology on today's engines they are costlier to maintain however, if properly maintained on the average provide far better service life that the older engines of 20 years ago.
I know some will argue and before you do contact Pat Goss at http://www.patgosscarworld.com/ probably the fore most expert in the automotive field he will set you strait. The man knows everything about almost every vehicle and manufacturer. He has never been wrong in all the years I have been listening to him both on the radio and on Motor Week. I know this looks like an advertisement but the truth is I just which I knew what the man has forgotten.

$60.00 at University Car Wash in Fort Worth, TX. Comes with a free "the works" car wash (wash, wax, interior dusting and vacuum). They grease the suspension and do a courtesy check on all your fluids while changing the oil and filter, topping off whatever needs topping off. Of course they will try to sell you a gear oil and transmission fluid change as well as an air filter regardless of the condition of those things. The odd thing is they are a Texaco Express Lube station and they use Shell Rotella oil on the diesels. It's a drive thru oil change and you stay in the vehicle. They have air conditioning ducts mounted on booms that they put up to your open window during hot weather. They have a TV in the bay and you can listen on your stereo if you want to watch it.
