I have a 2011 Prius, and I want to change the oil myself. Previously, I had a 1991 Honda–440 k miles–and used a standard ramp to elevate the car so I could get at the fittings. However, the Prius has much lower bumpers–plastic–and I fear that they may be damaged if I use them to elevete the front end. Is getting a LONGER ramp–at a considerable cost–the way to go, or should I bite the bullet and let the service people do what I can’t seem to do, even though it will lighten my wallet?
Changing oil is such a non-techie task, I hate to give it over to the dealership. HELP!!!
