Oil Change Frequency Information

Now that we’ve answered your question, “How often should you change your oil?” It’s important to know not only the costs of oil changes but a few tips about oil changes that can help you in the long run:

  • Review your owner’s manual to double check if your vehicle needs conventional oil or synthetic oil in your car. While synthetic oil costs more, it lasts longer.
  • Even if you do not drive your car consistently around Richmond Hill, oil will break down. Be sure to change your oil twice a year.
  • Always be sure to change your oil filter, order the parts from our parts center. At our parts center, we offer part specials and general service specials as well.
  • At Southern Motors Honda, we offer specific and genuine Honda OEM parts. Even though some Bluffton drivers might opt for aftermarket parts due to the price, we recommend choosing OEM parts for longevity and better performance.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

To avoid any issues, check your oil level at least once every month. You will want to check for the oil color and any signs of debris.
