How Much Does it Cost for an Oil Change?

Let’s take a deeper dive into the question of “How much is an oil change?” We will review the different types of oil and how it affects the cost:

Synthetic Oil: You should refer to your owner’s manual to see what type of oil your vehicle takes. When you review your handbook and says that your car needs synthetic oil, your oil change will cost more. On average, an oil change using synthetic oil costs between $45 to $70, depending on the condition and size of your car or SUV. 

Synthetic oil is a higher quality oil that lasts longer. In fact, in some cases, a full-synthetic oil change won’t need changing for 15,000 miles. However, you should only add synthetic oil if your vehicle requires that type of oil.

Conventional Oil: The type of oil that is used on most vehicles is conventional oil. Again, be sure to check your owner’s manual or make a service appointment. Traditional oil is typically good for six months or 5,000 to 7,500 miles, whichever comes first.

Oil Change Service Tips

Here are some additional oil change service tips to help you save and keep your vehicle healthy:

  • If your vehicle takes synthetic oil, you can save on an oil change by blending synthetic oil with conventional oil. You will still receive the performance of synthetic oil without the high cost.
  • Some service departments charge more for labor. Keep that in mind when budgeting for an oil change.
  • If you lease or own a new vehicle, you may be able to receive complimentary routine maintenance, which includes oil changes. 

An oil change is a perfect time to have the service department review your vehicle’s concerns or issues. Be sure to let the technician know of vehicle problems and be aware that costs can increase. There may be an additional cost to have the issue diagnosed as well.
