When I got the truck, I also got a maintenance package and I work for the dealership. Kind of a win win. I can check on it when it goes in, I get a discount, etc. I definitely stay away from quick lube places.Unless your apartment rules forbid you from working on your vehicle, there's no reason why you can't do it yourself. I do my maintenance in my driveway which would be no different than doing it in a parking lot. You could also check to see if there are any places in your area that rent bays to DIY'ers. Outside of that, I would look for a good reputable mechanic rather than the dealer as it will usually save you money. Stay away from quick change oil places! While some are "OK", some are not and it's not worth your vehicle's health to take a chance of a place who tells you they changed the oil but didn't, or used the wrong oil and didn't change the filter. Yeah, crap like that happens.
