Default Oil Changes at Valvoline Shops

I have a 2003 CL. Do people have opinions regarding getting one's oil
changed at the "pit stop" type shops versus the dealer?

I usually go to a Valvoline branded store for my truck. Do folks recommend
the synthetic oils or regular in the Acura 3.2 motor? I usually get the oil
changed at 3,000 miles. I have a lot of short trips and city driving.

Thanks.

Default Re: Oil Changes at Valvoline Shops

Synthetic. Change at manufacturers intervals during warranty.
Out-of-warranty, every 6,000 miles regardless of time.

Go to the dealer. Approx. same amount of money and they know your car.
Jiffy Lube stripped my oil pan and cost me 400 to replace it. I'm still
trying to get them to pay it
