    Many years ago, I use to use my favorite local mechanic's garage, do it myself or even on a rare occasion, an oil change location. However, in the past 20+ years I will only take my vehicles to a GM dealership. One of the main reasons why is to have all my vehicle records in their system as to cover any issues or concerns that might come up. This way GM won't be able to blame me for any engine or any part failures.

      I use an adjustable oil filter wrench to remove different sized filters - it works well. Not sure whether this is the exact one linked below, but it's similar. Worked on the C8 one without issues.

        I agree with this, although I had a interesting experience last year. When my C7 Z06 broke a valve spring and the extended-warranty (Chevy Protection Plan) company asked for my annual oil change records, the service writer had all of them in their computer system but one, which was done as a different Chevy dealer. I had a paper copy that I copied and sent to him, but I was surprised that he could not see all the records for the car from any dealer. Maybe he really could but he is too dim to know how to do it. But I do know that in the BMW world all the dealer servicing on a car comes up with the VIN regardless of where it was done. So I still recommend keeping paper copies of receipts for dealer or any work done on your car. --Bob

          I agree about keeping good records on vehicles. I create files and keep every record on all the vehicles I own. I sell my vehicles on my own, i never trade in as I like to maximize my sales price (I'm notoriously frugal, but not cheap). Keeping very thorough records helps give the buyer some assurance the vehicle has been meticulously maintained and strengthens my asking price. And of course it is your proof that you followed all maintenance recommendations if there is a warranty dispute.

            If you do your own maintenance, take a look at the Carfax app. It makes tracking your own maintenance super easy and you can even upload copies of receipts, etc. Best part is, the self-performed maintenance then shows up on your vehicles Carfax report.

              I keep all paper records in a binder from all my dealer visits to have just in case the GM's computer system goes on down or gets purged after so many years. I know this because I had asked for a record of a part replacement on my Chevy SSR that was done in 2005 and the dealer said it was no longer in their system.
