How Much Does it Cost for an Oil Change?
You can learn a lot about how much an oil change will cost for your specific make and model by simply consulting your owner’s manual. If your car requires synthetic oil, for example, you’re likely to pay more than with conventional oil. We’ll touch more on this, plus some additional factors, below:
If you’re driving a vehicle that requires synthetic oil, expect an oil change to cost between $45 and $70. Many high-performance engines require synthetic oil, and while the higher cost may initially seem like a pitfall, you’ll be glad to know that synthetic oil lasts longer and requires a change less often.
Depending on your vehicle, you may be able to use a less expensive synthetic/conventional oil blend. Be sure to ask a professional service tech before assuming this is okay for your vehicle, though.
Dealership service centers are likely to charge a little more for an oil change to account for the cost of oil and labor. For a dealership, this is one of our best chances to show you that for the added cost, you can always rest assured that your vehicle is in the capable hands of their technicians who are factory-trained to know your vehicle inside and out.
If your vehicle is covered by a new vehicle factory warranty or you’ve purchased an extended warranty, you may have access to complimentary routine maintenance. This could help you get oil change services free of charge for a specified amount of miles or months.
Working a service appointment into your busy Shawnee Mission schedule isn’t always easy. After all, you use your vehicle to get around every day, so being without it for any length of time isn’t ideal. Make the most of your time by having any other issues addressed during your oil change appointments. If you’ve been experiencing issues with your brakes, steering, or any other systems, let your technician know and they’ll gladly perform an inspection to diagnose the problem after your oil change.
