When you drive a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, oil changes are just part of life. Engine oil keeps the engine lubricated, and it will need to be changed before it breaks down to keep your engine protected. When the time comes for an oil change, head to Douglas Volkswagen of Summit. We’re your local VW dealership serving Chatham and New Providence!
Some older Volkswagen models may still use conventional oil. If yours is one of these, we do carry genuine VW conventional oil. Just keep in mind that it will need to be replaced about every 3,000 miles.
Volkswagen models made since the year 2004 have required synthetic oil. It costs a bit more than conventional oil, but it’s worth every penny. Unlike conventional oil, synthetic oil can last up to 10,000 miles or one year between oil changes. It also provides better lubrication to your engine thanks to its more even molecular structure, and it can help your engine stay cleaner thanks to the detergent additives.
If you have a vintage VW and are looking to make the switch to synthetic — or you just want some of its benefits — ask us about synthetic blend oils.
If you drive a VW with a diesel engine, it will require special diesel engine oil. In addition to having a higher viscosity than oil for gas engines, diesel oil also contains anti-wear additives. Although these are necessary for diesel engines, they would damage the more delicate catalytic converters of gas-powered vehicles.
Ready to bring your VW by for its next oil change? We’re ready to help! Schedule your appointment online, or just stop by to take advantage of our VW Service Xpress — no appointment is needed! We look forward to seeing you and your Volkswagen at Douglas Volkswagen of Summit, New Jersey.
