The 10 to 15 minutes from Arlington, MA, to our certified Volkswagen service department in Medford, MA, is a profitable drive that yields oil change service completed by certified technicians with genuine OEM parts. We complete oil changes with quick turnarounds at the Xpress Service lane and offer specials that allow customers to pay less for certified Volkswagen oil change quality at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford. Here are the types of oil change services we offer:
Conventional oil is refined petroleum that contains additives to thin viscosity and extend the resistance to thermal breakdown. We stock conventional motor oil that older Volkswagen models need and provide conventional oil changes as recommended every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
Most Volkswagen drivers on the road today own newer models with combustion engines lubricated by full-synthetic oil. Full-synthetic is now the go-to standard due to smaller molecules, thinnest viscosity, and extended resistance to sludge formation compared to conventional oil. Volkswagen drivers in Arlington, MA, that need full-synthetic oil changes can get them with us every 10,000 miles as recommended in normal conditions.
This motor oil is a mixture of synthetic base stock plus petroleum-based conventional. These advanced synthetics improve viscosity and sludge-formation prevention beyond conventional oil, these characteristics make semi-synthetic oil a good option for higher-mileage engines that started with conventional but could benefit from enhanced lubrication to protect the engine’s moving parts. Customers with semi-synthetic motor oil should get change services every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
Some Volkswagen drivers in Arlington, MA, purchased a diesel-engine model for benefits, such as lower maintenance costs and greater torque generation using less fuel. Diesel engines require a specialized lubricant with greater anti-wear properties. We stock diesel engine oil and provide diesel oil changes to factory specifications.
Volkswagen owners in Arlington, MA, can schedule oil change services at any time online or during service department hours by phone. Most customers wait for oil changes in the comfortable lounge area furnished with TVs, Wi-Fi, vending machines, complimentary beverages, and reading material.
