Did they give you the 2.3 qts they didn't use? That's $68.52.

Filter is $32.09 + shipping online.

Legit. Nobody begrudges a fair profit. My Ford dealer asks me to bend over every time I need something. I'd be happy to buy parts from him if he didn't insist on 250% markup. So I bring my own parts that I buy from other Ford dealers online. Then he just bumps up the labor.

Yes I did receive the remainder of the oil and was told by my Delivery Specialist Bernardo Martinez to keep the extra oil handy as this engine will use a little oil if run aggressive! Being a former Ford Dealer I don’t have a problem with my servicing dealers prices and I will mention they pick my GT up and deliver it back at no charge and keeps me from driving to Houston during high traffic times for customer pay work. Mileage is 70 miles round trip and my Girl looks good in that new trailer!

It depends on how you drive the car.. Lots of track time Ford recommends @ 2500 miles. For normal service 5000 miles. I did my 2nd change at 3600 miles.. Has anyone bought this oil ??

That is a damn good deal then. I wish all my cars had that option!

Well seems I'm at the front of the line for highest priced 600 mi oil change. Second attempt was done last week at my servicing dealer who picked it up and brought it back in their trailer (RT 152 mi). Invoice lists 4 units HG7Z*19M544*A engine oil at $246.85/4L = $987.40. 1 HG7Z*6731*A Filter Asy = $98.35 and labor of $175 for a total price of $1355.19.

My story started with the first attempt at my 600 mi oil change a couple of weeks ago. I contacted my servicing dealer about performing the oil change. At the time I setup the service I specially said to make sure they had the correct parts and oil before they came and got my car. They came picked up the car in their trailer, changed the oil and brought it back to me. Upon receiving the invoice I noticed that there was no Ford part number for the oil. Only stated 14 units of Edge 5-50 oil at $32.15 /unit for a total of $450.10 for the oil. It did have the correct Ford oil filter # shown and the same cost and labor cost as listed above. Total cost for this oil change was $791.71. No charge for the pickup and delivery on the initial 600 mi oil change.

I contacted the dealership and asked for confirmation that the correct Ford recommended motor oil, Castrol Edge Supercar 5W50 as stated in the owners manual was used. After discussions amongst the dealership staff they got back to me and said they couldn't verify that the Ford specified Castrol Edge Supercar oil was used. They did agree to secure the correct Ford recommended Castrol Edge Supercar 5W50 oil and would re-do the oil change. I had to wait a week before they could secure the correct oil.

Lesson I've learned from this is to not assume people know anything about the NFGT even if they have been listed as a servicing dealership and have sent people to Multimatic/Ford for training. Too many other people within the dealership that are part of your servicing process have no clue about the car. I would have thought the service technician would have looked at the oil and said - "Wait this isn't the right stuff".

I will be inquiring about did they put all 4 4L jugs of oil in (hopefully not) and if not where is my leftover extra oil?

Good thing I got my lifts installed so I can do oil changes myself!

WOW Gary, that's not a great experience.

Has anyone bought oil recently? Has the price gone up (yes I understand the above price is retail vs "jobber")?

I'm at 600 miles and also cruise control won't set. Was going to send to dealer to check out Cruise and do oil change. Guess I'll ask for price as I do have access to a lift and use it for oil changes on 05.

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.

Gary, you should have a jug with a little over 3L left after the oil change! Mine was given me when the GT was returned. We cannot assume everyone in a dealership including the Parts dpt. are on the same page with these New GT’s. Always go behind and have a direct relationship with the mechanic whose working on your GT!!! VERY IMPORTANT!

From the phony web site from the original post? No way. Picked up 4 gallons and filter yesterday at the dealer (after they ordered it).


Has anyone bought this oil ??

Well, filling up a boat or jet ain’t cheap either.

Hope hyper-cars dont eve qualify for “two happiest days in owners life” or “if it flies, floats, ..., “ jokes

More reason to use that oil with miles!

I don't have a dog in this fight, but a quick google finds many sources of HG7Z*19M544*A for $125-$135. Many of the sources are Ford dealers (e.g., Tasca Ford). So...Ford dealers selling the oil online are able to make a profit at $125-$135, but a servicing dealer needs to make an extra $120-$130/gallon? And then have the nerve to charge you for more oil than the car needs, because the oil comes in gallon containers and there are 3 quarts left over? Do you have to apply and be approved to spend $60/qt for oil?

EDIT: Tasca Ford sells the oil filter for $32 (list price $61).

2020 Oil change update. Just had mine done at Ford of Fairfield in CA. (4) HG7Z*19M544*A @ $216.81 = $867.24 (1) HG7Z*6731*A Filter @ $70.34 (1) Hr. Labor @ $199.95. Total $1137.53. They are a certified GT service dealer and I know both the owner and the GM well. The tech Sean clearly knew what he was doing and had a lot of experience with at least 10 previous cars. The boss let me in the shop to watch the whole process. Clearly the cost of the oil continues to skyrocket. I am used to $199/hr labor rates at dealers in CA but I am certainly not used to $54/qt for oil! Ouch!! As I now see how easy the oil change is I will likely do it myself next time around. It did take them 3 weeks to get the correct oil filter. I'm tempted to order another one now and keep it on the shelf if they are going to continue to be difficult to get!
