I guess i'm one of rare who don't, reason why?, no space to do it. no time to do it, and I actually trust the shop I go to. plus the fact that i'm watching the guys and making sure there doing the work right as they do it. and they don't air wrench the plug on, so If I needed to do it I can.

my friend got his oil done at jiffy lube (oil co in so cal..dunno if they are out of state) right before a 300 mile roadtrip and the guys left the radiator cap off and it ruined his entire engine. They ended up buying him a new car comparable to what he already owned...and yes I do my own oil =]
