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!

On 3/24/2020, we purchased a 2019 Honda Odyssey from Honda of Chantilly (VA). It was almost as easy and satisfying as checking out a book from the library. Paul Thompson was a pro who took care of all issues from trade in to the paperwork. I will return to Paul and this dealership in the future. Rebecca answers questions, the trade in manager was very knowledgeable, the finance manager was great. This was a group of people focused on helping me get the mini van I needed. I value that. I felt no pressure or stress.

I got a great deal on a new Honda Insight at Honda of Chantilly! Added benefit - it gets 51 MPG city. Not bad! Preston (sales dept) was awesome - answered all my questions and you can tell he really loves his work, knows a ton about cars, and loves working with people. Equally fantastic - Amin in the service dept. Service Dept is open from early morning to late at night and no need to make an appointment. I wish I had found out about this place earlier; will never go anywhere else. I've literally never had better service anywhere.

This is a place that really cares and does the right thing. My service visit was fraught from the beginning with miscommunications and misunderstandings but I was very impressed with the way Julio and Mike handled it, worked through it and calmly talked through it together with me and come to a resolution that worked for all parties. I'll definitely continue to come here! Thank you.

JL Lim asked me what purpose I would use in choosing a vehicle and suggested a vehicle I needed. It also ensures that there is no problem in purchasing the vehicle. Based on accurate knowledge of the vehicle, he also explained the advantages of the test drive and what other customers were uncomfortable with. Thanks to JL Lim, I bought a good car. If I ask him about the vehicle, I think he will kindly answer it.

After 13 years with my previous Honda CR-V, it was time for a new one. I came in to inquire about the 2020 Honda CR-Vs and that's when I learned about the hybrid option. They were not yet ready however, so I exchanged emails with Daniel Ing and he kept me updated on the latest developments. He texted me as soon as the first batch came in. I came in the next day, but it wasn't the class, color or budget I wanted. To my surprise he called me a week later and got in the exact car I wanted. I came in that night after work and he worked with me until after closing to make sure I understand all the new features, and all my options for financing. I walked away with a car that night.

We met Kirsta Hall on a Sunday that we had limited time to car shop. We asked for details and a quick review of the cars we were interested in. She did as we asked and didn't provide us with sales pressure. A welcomed experience.

I've been doing business with the Honda Of Chantilly location for the past 3 years. I was looking for a new car and the Sales associate Nick Linton really helped me out finding the perfect car for me and my needs. He didn't rush or was quick to sell he really helped me seek all my options and help me get to a deal that I was comfortable with. I really do appreciate that kind of customer service. Even after I made that purchase he checked up multiple times during the week to see if everything was going great with brand new car. I highly recommend this dealership and I recommend Nick Linton if you are looking to purchase a new car. I will continue to do business with them!
