Lucky you fly that you have positive experience with mechanic, but for me DIY is not only time saving, since going to the dealer is whole day experience, but I had too many proves that oil filters were not changed with oil change not to mention my last experience with Ford dealer, where during 2 minutes recall job mechanic dropped air filter clamp inside -grinding $2000 turbo in the effect. Since the problem show up at freeway speeds later on, the dealership is declining any responsibility and I might have to add the 2 grands to my maintenance costs.
