More Oil Change Information

Now we’ve answered “how long should an oil change take?” There are some more things you should keep in mind for your Douglasville and Villa Rica drives, though.

  • Conventional wisdom used to say you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles, but these days, you’ll want to get your oil changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. In fact, some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. But you’ll want to check the owner’s manual.
  • We’ve got a service specials page that is always updating, and often, there’ll be an oil change coupon there for you.
