More Oil Change Information

For those who know it’s time to get an oil change, remember the following:

  • It used to be conventional wisdom that you should get an oil change around every 3,000 miles. Nowadays, auto experts recommend newer cars get oil changes between 5,000-7,500 miles. In some vehicle configurations, you may be able to go 10,000 miles between oil changes. Remember to check your owner’s manual for the specific oil change interval.
  • We have service specials always getting updated! We offer both oil change coupons

and other discounted auto services.

An essential element is to know whether your vehicle needs conventional or synthetic oil. Your Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep, Ram owner’s manual will have that information listed. While synthetic oil costs more, it won’t generally affect the time required for an oil change.
