2011 Mustang - Oil change question
The dealership where I bought my 2011 GT offers free oil changes for life. This is a great feature, but what I didn't realize is that they do the oil changes every 7,500 miles. I brought it in for a free change at 5,500 miles, when the oil life indicator was down to 0%. The service manager said they would do it this time, but next time they would only do it after 7,500 miles (13,000 total on vehicle). I'm now at 9,600 miles total on the car, and the oil life indicator is at 18%, so there is no way I'll make it to 13,000.
I'm thinking that I'll just have it changed when the indicator gets close to 0, and then have the dealership change it again at 13,000. Can anyone advise as to how difficult changing the oil myself would be? I used to do it all the time (had 1986 and 1990 Mustangs, both 4 cylinders), but stopped about 6 or 7 years ago. I'm not sure if the current cars would be much more difficult or not.
Thanks for any advice.
