Oil Change Service Overview

Most oil change visits are relatively basic and are considered an express service offering due to our ability to provide speedy switches. In an oil change, we drain all your old oil for safe disposal and double-check it for any signs of excessive degradation to assess the health of your engine. We then add new oil to the appropriate level and of the appropriate type based on your Volkswagen model specifications. A new original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, oil filter is also installed to keep your vehicle operating in top condition.

Semi-Synthetic Oil vs Other Types

Semi-synthetic oil, or synthetic-blend motor oil, relies on the pairing of conventional oil and synthetic oils as its base. It is more affordable than a straight synthetic oil while still providing the benefits of the unique additives in a synthetic product. These additives increase performance in colder temperatures, improve heat resistance and general performance. While there are no specific guidelines regarding the blending of synthetic and conventional oils to create a semi-synthetic oil, Volkswagen does provide recommended oils in an effort to protect your vehicle.

While semi-synthetic is a blend of conventional and synthetic. A straight synthetic oil's base is 100% synthetic, and the oil contains additives to boost performance. Conventional oils, or regular oils, are a 100% refined crude option. Synthetic is more expensive and lasts longer, while conventional is more affordable but needs to be changed 2 to 2.5 times more than full synthetic.

Semi-Synthetic Oil Change Schedule

Despite its long useful life, semi-synthetic oil does need to be changed every 5,000 to 7,000 miles on average. Doing so helps you avoid the risks of degraded oil impeding vehicle performance or developing sludge that can damage your engine.
