Your VW Oil Change Done Right

You can't put just any oil in a Volkswagen engine. These vehicles run best on synthetic oils that conform with your factory-limited warranty. These oils must meet specifications VW 502.00 and (for diesel engines) VW 507.00. When you choose us for service, you'll get the factory-prescribed treatment every time.

We're happy to perform oil change service for any VW model. We'll change the engine oil and filter at the same time, so you can reap the full rewards of fresh and clean oil. Come to us for:

  • Volkswagen Passat oil change
  • Volkswagen Jetta oil change
  • Volkswagen Golf oil change

Whether it's an oil change for your Volkswagen Passat or the correct Volkswagen Jetta oil type, we have you covered. Our certified technicians know everything you need for an effective oil change!

Why Do I Need Oil Changes?

It's no exaggeration to say oil is the lifeblood of your engine. Oil lubricates the metal parts inside, so they can work smoothly. Over time, oil will break down and/or become contaminated with debris. Changing it at regular intervals will keep things flowing well.

If you neglect to change your oil, those metal parts will dry out and grind against each other. This causes friction, which produces heat. You can easily overheat the engine this way. Avoid costly engine repair or replacement and perform your oil changes on schedule every time!

How Often Do I Need Volkswagen Oil Changes?

Since they use synthetic oil, Volkswagen vehicles can go quite a while in between oil changes. Plan on changing your oil every 10,000 miles or 12 months-whichever comes first. If you drive an older model, however, you may need more frequent oil changes.

For the best results, check your vehicle's oil change interval in your owner's manual. You can also contact us and speak with one of our VW technicians for a professional opinion. You should also check the condition of your oil at least once a month, so you can stay on top of unexpected issues.

Many VW cars have an "Oil Change Now" indicator that shows in the digital display in your gauge cluster (or your Volkswagen Digital Cockpit). When you get this message, schedule an oil change ASAP.
