Your engine needs oil changes. The engine oil keeps the engine lubricated; when it begins to break down, your engine will become less lubricated, leading to severe damage. To keep your engine safe, you should have the oil changed at the recommended interval -- and we will be glad to help at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford, serving Cambridge and Arlington!
There may be plenty of quick-lube oil change places around Medford, but Colonial Volkswagen of Medford is the superior choice. Volkswagen has trained our technicians, and they will use only genuine VW oil and OEM oil filters. These will serve to ensure that your VW's engine stays in good condition. While you wait, you can enjoy our amenity-filled customer lounge.
If you have a Volkswagen model made since 2004, it will require synthetic engine oil. Synthetic oil costs a bit more than synthetic oil upfront, but it's worth the extra cost -- especially since it can help you save money in the long run! Synthetic oil resists breakdown better than conventional oil, so it lasts much longer. Rather than the 3,000 miles recommended for conventional, you can go up to 10,000 miles between synthetic oil changes. It also does a better job of lubricating your engine, and its detergent additives can serve to keep your engine clean.
If you drive an older Volkswagen model, it may use conventional oil. For cases like these, we also carry conventional VW oil.
If you drive an older Volkswagen model and want to make the switch to synthetic oil slowly, ask about our synthetic blend oils.
Diesel engine oil is different from the oil used by gas-powered engines. It often has a higher viscosity, and it also includes anti-wear additives that could damage the catalytic converter of a gas-powered car.
