The Importance of Periodic Oil Changes

As you go about your day-to-day driving life in your GM, your vehicle begins to pick up a lot of dirt and grime from the road. As your oil and engine systems work together, the grit and grime from the road gets into the oil. This can affect your engine's performance if it's not taken care of regularly.

During an expert oil change appointment with our trained and certified GM staff, we'll drain that old dirty oil from your vehicle, and replace it with fresh oil.

This essential service should be done approximately every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the type of oil your vehicle requires, and manufacturer guidelines for your model.

The best part about getting your vehicle serviced with us, though, is you don't have to worry about any of this. We'll do it all for you. Our technicians know exactly what each GM model requires for service, and we perform every maintenance appointment, including oil changes, quickly and efficiently.
