We all know we have to change our car's oil. But how many drivers know why oil changes are important? Have you ever wondered what the difference is between conventional and synthetic oil? Many drivers ask questions like this and sometimes forget to bring them up when talking to their service advisor, so we're addressing them today! Keep reading to find out what you've been wondering about oil changes.

What's the difference between synthetic and conventional oil?

Synthetic oil, as opposed to conventional oil, is refined and distilled. Doing so breaks it down into individual molecules that are better able to meet the demands of some modern engines. Plus, synthetic oils boast better performance and protection than conventional oils.

How often should you change the oil in your vehicle?

Typically anywhere between 5,000 to 10,000 miles. With all of the synthetic oils available, many vehicles can drive for longer with the same oil. As always, talk to your service technician about what's right for your vehicle.

Why should I bring my vehicle to the dealership to have my oil changed?

If you change your own oil, props to you, because it's not easy. It's messy and takes time out of your day. Plus, you have to have all of the supplies on hand to do it. So, if you're not used to doing it yourself, then it's so much easier to trust our expert technicians to get it done quickly and correctly.

Where can I get an oil change near me?
