There’s no getting around it: oil changes are some of the most common services your Volkswagen will need. When the time comes for your next oil change, head to Jennings Volkswagen, serving Skokie and Morton Grove. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service to Volkswagen drivers in Northfield, Wilmette, and beyond. Read on to find out more about our synthetic oil change service, or just head over to Jennings Volkswagen.
Conventional oil and synthetic oil both serve the same main purpose: to keep the moving parts in your engine lubricated. But conventional oil is essentially just refined crude oil, whereas synthetic oil is much more. It’s modified at a molecular level, making it even better at lubricating the engine. Synthetic oil can deal with extreme temperatures better than conventional oil. This means that it’s not just better at getting started on cold mornings, but it’s also better suited to your engine’s high heat. Synthetic oil comes with detergent additives that can help clean your engine, as well. What’s more, synthetic oil lasts much longer than conventional oil, so you won’t have to get oil changes as frequently.
If you’re driving a gas-powered Volkswagen model made after the year 2004, your engine actually requires synthetic oil. Older models don’t require synthetic, but it may still be a better choice. And of course, if you’re driving a diesel-powered Volkswagen, you’ll need special diesel oil.
Unlike the chain oil change shops you’ll find around the Glenview area, Jennings Volkswagen has a cutting-edge facility with VW-certified technicians. What’s more, we use genuine VW synthetic oil so that you can know you’re getting only the best. Of course, this is just the beginning of what sets us apart. While you wait for your oil change, take advantage of our comfortable waiting area. It includes complimentary snacks and beverages, a children’s play area, a quiet room, and more. We also offer complimentary Uber/Lyft services if you prefer to go about your day. Take a look through our regularly updated service coupons to see how you can save even more on a synthetic oil change.
When you’re ready for an oil change, our online service scheduler makes it easy. Simply give us a little information, and then choose the day and time that work best for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
