Keeping up with your car maintenance is key to getting the most miles out of your vehicle in Hanover and one service that you can’t skip is routine oil changes. So how often should you change your oil? It depends on your make and model, but thanks to improved technology over the years, most new cars have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. Consult with your owner’s manual for the most accurate recommendations, and if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Silko Volkswagen!

 

 

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

While the general rule of thumb is to change your oil every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, there are other factors to consider. For example, your driving habit and style in the Braintree area will affect how often you need to change your oil. Be sure to adjust your oil change frequencies accordingly if you do any of these types of driving:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

Oil Change FAQs

Knowing your vehicle’s oil change frequency in Norwood is one thing, but there is more to it. Here are three top questions regarding oil changes that drivers often wonder about:

Q: Does my car need synthetic or conventional oil?

A: Again, it depends on your model, so check your owner’s manual to see if one is required. Synthetic oil will cost more, but they last longer and provide the high level of performance that some model is designed to deliver.

Q: I don’t drive my car often in Raynham. Do I still need to change my oil on a constant routine?

A: Yes! Even if you don’t drive your car daily, car oil still breaks down over time, so you’ll need to get them changed when it’s the right time. You can expect your oil change frequency to be at least twice a year if you don’t drive often.

Q: When I change the oil myself or get it changed by a professional, is there anything else I need to get done as well?

A: You’ll want to change your oil filter whenever you get an oil change. You can easily find the right oil filter for your Volkswagen model at Silko Volkswagen’s parts center.
