At just over 6,000 miles our 2015 Acura TLX was due for its first A1 service. There was also a surprise recall.

    "I haven't seen this one before,"

    That means they aren't selling many V6 9-speed models. Recall should only apply to the 9-speed version.

    Oh, okay. $80. In California, you probably find $100 bills laying on the road and tip your doorman that everyday for opening your door, but for the rest of us, that's not an inconsequential amount, especially for just a basic oil change. Was that for full synthetic, I hope? $45 for a tire rotation I guess? Seems excessive either way.

    That is big money for an oil change and rotation. Sounds like that service advisor had a nice day.

    From a dealer, $80 for oil/filter change and tire rotation seems reasonable to me. Have you forgotten what the German dealers charge?

    Seems like a good price for a full synthetic oil change on a "premium brand" to me.

    Those nine speeds, if that's what it is, have software issues in most model cars. I change oil and filter myself in my 2014 Toyota RAV4 for about $35 or less, which includes five quarts of 0-20W synthetic. So maybe $80 from a dealer with tire rotation isn't so bad.

    I get my (dino) oil changed, car washed, and vacuumed at my Acura dealer for $27 out the door. Oh and they have free fivebucks and wi-fi in their lounge.
