Is It Time to Get my Oil Changed?

The question is never too far from the minds of responsible car owners. New and recent Honda cars and SUVs take the guesswork out of the equation, actively reminding Chula Vista drivers when it's time for an oil change or to schedule service at Penske Honda Chula Vista

Heed Oil Change Reminders

Your newer Honda Fit or HR-V comes with Honda Maintenance Minder. This handy feature monitors your oil life for you, and reminds San Diego drivers when the 7,500-mile window is nearing and it's time to schedule an oil change.

Even without this feature, it's a good idea for El Cajon drivers to always keep their oil change window in mind. If you goal is to get the most out of your Honda Accord, and maintain its resale value, then regular oil changes are a must.

Fresh Oil is the Lifeblood of the Engine

A thin layer of oil protects the moving parts of your Honda engine every time you press down on the accelerator. The oil breaks down over time, and if it's not changed regularly, the engine starts to break down as well. The increased friction causes engine wear. Metal shavings will appear, and be disturbed throughout the engine as the oil filter reaches its capacity.

In short, bad developments--and hefty repair bills--quickly materialize for El Cajon drivers who don't adhere to recommended oil change schedule.

The good news for National City drivers is the Penske Honda Chula Vista Service Center has plenty of available appointment windows! Schedule your next oil change service with us, and we'll have you back on the road in no time!
