Choose the Synthetic Oil Change Service at Carter Volkswagen in Ballard
It’s no secret that keeping your engine’s oil changed at regular intervals is important for taking the best care of your Volkswagen, but are you aware of the benefits that come with a synthetic oil change? Next time your VW needs an oil change, stop by our state-of-the-art service department and ask for the synthetic oil change. Some Volkswagens require synthetic engine oil anyway, and we’ll only use synthetic oil that has been approved by VW engineers for your model. We’ll also be sure to replace the engine oil filter with a genuine OEM Volkswagen filter specifically designed for your engine.
Why Get Synthetic Oil Changes?
Where conventional oil is refined mainly from crude oil out of the ground, synthetic oil is developed from a combination of conventional oil and other engineered compounds. This allows synthetic oil to perform better throughout the full range of engine operating temperatures. On cold mornings, synthetic oil flows more freely to more quickly deliver protection throughout the engine. At the higher operating temperatures after the engine has been running for a while, synthetic oil will better adhere to the various components for superior protection. What’s more, synthetic oil takes longer to break down so you don’t need to have it changed as often which saves time and money in the long run.
How Often Should You Bring Your Vehicle in for Synthetic Oil Changes?
Since synthetic engine oil lasts longer, so you don’t need to come in every 3,000 miles as recommended for conventional oil. Typically, synthetic oil only needs to be changed every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, but the owner’s manual should say what your model calls for. Since every engine and its driving demands differ, we recommend talking to one of the advisers in our service department for a Volkswagen synthetic oil change schedule that best fits your needs.
