It seems like that would be illegal, you wouldn't be allowed to change the agreement, so I don't think the dealer could. If it's not illegal, its very unethical. Check your dealership at the Better Business Bureau, you can also file a complaint there.

If it isn't in the contract that you have to get the oil changed there or it voids the warranty, they can't void it. Read the contract very carefully and make sure it doesn't say that.
