Very excited. I hadn’t changed the oil in my own vehicle for years, but I finally decided to buy the necessary equipment and supplies when I bought my most current car, the ’99 Subaru Outback. I knew that I’d enjoy owning the car for a long time, considering it’s a station wagon, super-reliable, not bad on gas mileage, and a ton of fun to drive.
I literally spent about 10 minutes changing the car’s oil and about two weeks putting it off because I didn’t want to run into unforeseen problems. Yes, it did cost a little bit more than a cheap-o $17.99 job from a corner shop, but now I own the tools to perform the task myself on ANY vehicle, rendering future oil changes cheaper. The sense of accomplishment is pretty great, I must say.
