Vehicle Maintenance Under Lease

It's my first time leasing an automobile, and I'm reaching my first oil change (A1 Service) on my 2016 MDX at ~6,000 miles. I'm sure that certain brands force you to go to their dealerships throughout the three years of your lease, but I seem to recall my salesperson telling me that I could service my MDX anywhere.

In reading through my original lease contract, it seems to say that I'm fine as long as I've met "the manufacturer's minimum recommendations." So it seems to me that I ought to take it to my local Midas or Valvoline (probably ~$50) instead of going back to the dealership (was quoted $96).

Any thoughts?

orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Better do it yourself save some money and be sure the work has been done... Too many nightmare stories about oil change shops not doing anything or worse, Selling you used oil.
