How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

If you want to enjoy your current ride for several more years to come, one of the best ways to keep it healthy is to keep up with regular maintenance. That being said, timely oil changes just might be the most important procedure to get done, as it keeps your engine running smoothly and ensures friction doesn’t eventually degrade important components. If you think your vehicle is in need of new oil, be sure to make your way to Honda of Chantilly soon.

How Often Should I Change Oil?

Unfortunately, it’s not always obvious when it’s time to swap your old oil out for a clean batch. That’s why most dealerships recommend keeping up with it within a certain number of miles or time. The prevailing consensus is roughly 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every three to six months. The huge degree of variability has to do with your driving habits. If you frequently take short trips, it’s best to be more frequent because condensation can accumulate and reduce the overall lifespan of oil. If you drive ten miles or more at a time, you can wait a little longer.

Checking Oil on Your Own

Although you’re free to stick with the guidelines above, folks who want to be sure the life of their oil is at an end can also check it manually. There’s no reason to be intimidated either, as it’s a simple procedure that takes only a matter of minute. Start by popping the hood and locating the dipstick, which is typically a rod with a colorful handle at the end. Pull it out of the engine compartment, wipe off the end, and insert it once more. Now, remove it and take a look at where the oil line falls on the spectrum at the bottom. You’ll see signs that clearly label whether your liquid is above or below the recommended levels. If it’s below, you’ll want to stop by our Service Department soon!

Service Department

If you’re in need of an oil change, you can trust the experts here at Honda of Chantilly’s Service Department. Since this is one of the operations we do the most, you’ll be in and out in no time at all. And because you’re already going to be with us, consider having us get a few other maintenance procedures out of the way so you don’t have to handle them in the future. We can’t forget to mention that we are always offering discounts, so be sure to check our website before your visit to save a couple bucks!

After reading this article, you won’t ever have to ask, “How often should I get an oil change?” again! Before visiting Honda of Chantilly, check out our rave customer reviews.

I bought a Honda HRV and my sales representative was Mohammed Khan. He was very helpful and efficiently guided me through the car buying process. Jay Palani was my finance representative and he was also very helpful. My car is great and I’m very happy with the Honda dealership.

Mr. Yong took good care of getting my SRS issue fixed and made sure to see that it was covered by warranty. He had my car delivered to me at my house. The young man (Faruez, I think) who brought me my car was so polite, and a real pleasure to speak with. It was clear he really likes his job. Thanks for the great service.

I had a wonderful experience today! Special shout-out to sales rep Shannelle Rushing who was knowledgeable, professional, and pretty darn fun to be with! We had emailed a couple of times and she was ready for our arrival, with the cars we wanted to see. She was able to answer every question, and even drove the car to my house for me. We had contact with several other people, all courteous, friendly, and helpful. I was with my boss who mentioned several times that car buying should be fun, and what a grind it can be,,, at the end he conceded that our experience had actually been very enjoyable! Thanks for everything, Shanelle and Honda of Chantilly!

I leased a car from Honda Of Chantilly last year. I would say I had an extraordinary experience, since it was my first time leasing a vehicle. One of their sales rep, Daniel Ing made everything simple and easy. He was amicable just as expert and set aside additional effort to enable us to find what we were looking for. Few days ago, I went there for my first free car service. They offered me a decent maintenance plan along with the first free oil change. One of the service staff members Deepak helped me and completed everything in a timely manner. Thank you Honda of Chantilly! 👍🏻

Shanelle was so helpful and patient with me while assisting us in getting a new 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback. She gladly took us as a walk-in and made our experience as hassle-free as possible. I absolutely loved her enthusiasm and she really made me feel taken care of! Getting a new car comes with a lot of steps but she guided me through it effortlessly. Business manager Louis also was extremely helpful and kind during our finance discussion.

We were on the fence about buying a minivan (SUV drivers for decades), but finally decided to go into a dealership to test drive and learn more. Our sales consultant (Angel Seklawi) was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the various minivan models and offerings. Went back there more than once and had a good experience with everyone on the team. Also, it was a very clean facility. Entire staff wore face masks properly, provided hand sanitizer, offered us masks, etc. Highly recommend this dealership! Also recommend the GORGEOUS Odyssey Elite! You will NOT be disappointed.

I purchased a Honda Civic Touring back in 2016 and Mike Reeves was my sales consultant. Fortunately four years later when I was ready to trade it in for a new Accord Mike was still there. Always the consumate professional, Mike takes time to get to know and appreciate his customers. This action gives him insight to their expectations and limitations so he can provide the customer with best possible opportunity and access to a new vehicle. I found Mike to be very methodical and orderly throughout the conduct of our transaction and gladly recommend his service. He has acquired a wealth of industry experience and is transparent with his customers.

If you are getting a car, I definitely recommend you to ask for Nick Linton!! He is one of the best sales person I have met. He has a positive mindset and gives you outstanding advice and knowledge to get a car and guaranteed to make sure you leave that place with a smile on your face. I can see him rising in this company for sure. If I could give him 10 stars I would. Especially if you are starting off he is definitely the person to speak to, he is tremendously helpful. (:
