At Winn Volkswagen of Woodland Hills, California, we understand why you love your Volkswagen so much. That is why we strongly encourage you to protect your investment by ensuring you keep up with routine preventative maintenance for your vehicle. The prime example of this is getting routine oil changes so that your engine is properly lubricated, allowing it to run at optimal performance and prevent damage and costly repairs. If you aren’t sure what type of motor oil your VW requires, our certified technicians can help explain the differences and the benefits of full-synthetic motor oil. We offer synthetic oil change services at our service department, where we can quickly and correctly drain your contaminated oil and replace it with suitable synthetic oil.
Conventional motor oil is what has been used in gas-powered engines for decades to provide the necessary lubrication. This oil is derived from crude petroleum and has a tendency to break down at high temperatures. This obviously is not optimal when your Volkswagen engine can reach very high temperatures during use. That is why full-synthetic motor oil was created. It has particular additives and chemicals that improve its viscosity and resistance to thermal breakdown. It is the top-quality option for motor oil and does not require oil changes as frequently. Due to the manufacturing process and the added benefits it imparts to your engine, synthetic motor oil is a little more expensive than the other options.
Synthetic motor oil is a high-quality choice for your Volkswagen car or SUV. Due to its improved properties and resistance to the high temperatures within your engine, you will not have to have your oil changed quite as frequently. With conventional oil, it needs to be changed between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. Our certified technicians recommend having your synthetic oil changed approximately every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If you haven’t quite reached this mileage checkpoint within the past year, we recommend having your oil changed now because it can degrade over time regardless of use or mileage.
We know it can be hard to find time in your busy schedule to have your oil changed. It may seem like it is unnecessary and inconvenient, but it really is an important service for your engine. If you have gone past your recommended mileage, we highly recommend you schedule an appointment for an oil change today. This is especially true if you have noticed the following signs of dirty or low motor oil:
