    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Has anyone priced out oil lately? $4 a quart for the el cheapo stuff, almost $6 for decent oil. Toss a filter into the mix and you're up to about $25 with taxes. With coupons an oil change at my Kia dealer is about $25, without coupons about $32 or so. I like changing my own oil, but it's just...
