Default oil changes at the dealership

okay, need some opinions.... i've been going back to the dealership everytime for oil changes since i bought my car a couple of years ago. i guess i go back everytime because i've never owned a brand new car before and didn't want to screw it up myself and affect the warranty. yes, i'm not the most mechanical person but before i take it back there next month, i've been thinking why shouldn't i do it myself?! thoughts???

You know what, buy a package of oil filters from the dealership,subarugenuiesparts.com, or K&N OEM replacement at partsource, then change the oil yourself.

You can learn something by doing it urself, and it's cost-efficent.

It wont affect ur warranty.

I'd say do it yourself if you don't mind getting your hands dirty. Its only REALLY messy the first time!

You can't affect your warranty by maintaining your car. Do it yourself, take it to Joe-Bob's Auto, doesn't matter.
Keep receipts indicating time and mileage of oil changes and your warranty is fine.
