A lady friend of mine pulled up in my driveway today with a new to her 2012 journey sxt awd (35,000 miles). I know nothing about these vehicles. Since I will be the one working on it (oil changes,etc.),I need all the info you guys can give me. How hard is it to do oil changes? does it need to be jacked up? she prefers synthetic oil,will this have any effect on anything except her pocketbook? I see the oil filter should be easy to change,is there any brand that is better quality then the others? Any other problems to look out for? thanks for any ideas!!
