Oil Change?

My sq4 has 2k miles on it after a year. Dealer said oil change is about $600. He suggested to take the plunge because it will protect you if there are complex engine problems, ever.

Is the oil change procedure special, different, delicate to justify $500-$600?

I am in NY

This does seem high just for the oil change since the first year service isn't that complicated. Maybe you should consider the 4 year maintenance program for from Maserati it includes the annual oil changes and in later years more extensive maintenance checks. I think you can find other threads with pricing people have had from dealers for this that are much lower.

$600 for just an oil change? If it was for a service ok thats different but the first service at 12,000miles isn't even that extensive.

the car takes about 8 qts of oil, which cost about $6ea, the filter costs $35... you do the math, which comes to about $85 for oil and filter.

do you feel paying an extra $515 for 15 minutes of labor is worth it?

go on amazon to buy the oil, then go to the dealer and buy the filter. once you have all the supplies go to ANY garage and ask them to change your oil for you and they will prob charge you $50 or less for the labor.

anyone charging $600 for an oil change deserves the middle finger lol..! the 12k miles maintenance only costs $350 which covers more areas than a simple drain and fill.

I agree, this is very expensive. But they do not only the oil change.
They also clean the car inside and outside. Give the leather the needed support. Check other things too. I assume 2 hour labour.
