Why is a Regular Oil Change Important?
Keeping up with your regularly maintenance schedule will extend the life of your Volkswagen. Not only does a regular oil change ensure your engine runs smoothly, but it also improves overall performance. Making sure to get your oil changed regularly with the correct oil for your vehicle prevents debris and other junk from building up and enhances its fuel efficiency. Changing the oil and filters removes theses particles. When left unchanged, this old oil can actually damage your engine. What’s more, as a car ages, burning dirty oil actually releases harmful emissions. Take preventative measures to lengthen the life of your engine by getting a regular oil change.
Can I Use Any Brand of Synthetic Oil?
Only the oil recommended for your vehicle in the Volkswagen Owner’s Manual or by a Volkswagen-certified technician should be used. It’s important to remember that the recommended synthetic oil is specifically made to be paired with your engine to improve its performance. There are many benefits to using the correct, high-quality oil. Better protection against dirt and debris can also extend the time you can go between oil changes! While it might be tempting to select a lower-quality synthetic oil to save a few dollars, you’ll be doing your Volkswagen a disservice. In some cases, using the wrong oil might even void your vehicle’s warranty.
