yes, it really is there and obviously a typo:

"We handled the 7,500-mile oil change ourselves. The Impreza was easy to work on, and the price was right. We spent under $10 for the DIY, while the dealer visits averaged $113."

for me, it's

$7 filter
$1 for crush washer
$25 + $2* for oil (assuming no rebate)

= $35

still a great savings over the dealer. (mine wants ~$90 "on special" for the synthetic change.

*$2 is for the 1/3 of a quart i buy which adds to the 5 qt jug.
