I was thinking the exact same thing. I know we should try to stick with what the manual recommends but that seems excessive--almost as bad as some pharmaceuticals companies.I’m no oil expert, but the price of this oil is bull****. Has anyone been able to determine exactly what is so special about the formulation of this oil?
That is not unreasonable for the whole service, oil change, filter and labor plus a little profit for the dealer!Hi everyone, yes the price has just went up as of April 1st. It is the oil that went up considerably. We are at about $950 for an oil change with the new price increase. You probable top off any fluids necessary also and check tire pressures!
The hilarious thing about all this is that the owners manual states that if the super-expensive Edge GT isn’t available, then go ahead and use regular Motorcraft 5-50 ( page 207)
Does the new GT specify Castrol 5w 50?
