So anyway my bad, guess I really need to be clear. I had my scat pack shaker 2015 oil changes done at this dealer. They were synthetic oil changes, pennzoil oil srt filters, and the charge was 79.95. Sometimes you will get a card to be punched for a free oil change. This particular dealer does every 5th oil change FREE. So, I go to the same dealer this year with my 2019 scat pack widebody. I guess they need to reinvent the oil change, or they are greedy, or they need money. The service writer says an SRT oil change is 139.95, same motor as my 2015 scat pack, same amount of oil and same filter. To his surprise, this would be my 5th oil change, and it would be free. My point was last year 2018 79.95, this year 2019 widebody 139.95 and that's why sometimes they are called stealerships.

Has it been the same person when paying every oil change, I'm just guessing there just trying to get more since it's a new car. Has it always been called SRT oil change?
