Well the oil was 45$ (i had the choice on all brands, picked the most expensive lol), the oil filter 10 or 15$, you add 15% tax and there's not much left for the +-45 mins they spent changing the oil and checking everything in and out of my truck, they even filled my windshield washer tank which was empty.

I'd rather save tons of money and get better quality elsewhere.
and if I do it myself, i guess i should keep the receipts from the oil and filter and i am all set?

If you do it yourself it makes it easier for them to blame problems on you instead of a company with a rep. Plus you having receipts does not prove you changed it.

also

Cost me 48$ for a regular oil change, they checked all the mandatory points, but didn't look at the truck, so they missed a burnt light.

They didn't noticed my mom's burnt headlight either lol

rare one. indeed. I had to tell my salesman that the validation sticker goes on the front on trucks, not the back. Then he went to show where everything was under the hood, but couldnt find the dipstick to my tranny (trucks manual). The tech who went to take my truck for my tailgate cable had trouble finding the latch for my parking brake.
