    Hes saying make sure they actually change the oil, and filter.

    One easy way to make sure they change the filter is put a mark on it with like a silver sharpie or something..after the change look for the mark.

    oil..well i dont know if you really can check that one.

    If you have a reputable dealer then it really shouldnt be a huge issue...
