OIL CHANGE

Not just another oil change

We use pure semi-synthetic oil

At AB Auto Town, we use semi-synthetic grade oil for all of our standard oil changes. Most low-cost oil changes use recycled oil, and this can sometimes create engine noise or even shorten the life of your engine. (See our Engine Oil Facts page for more information on semi-synthetic oil.)

Our full-service oil changes include a car wash and the following 40-point vehicle checkup, a service package that retails for $65.

Why change your oil every 3000 miles?

Prevention and early detection 

We look at oil change inspections as a preventative measure, helping our customers detect vehicle problems before they cause a breakdown. Car problems are a lot like serious illnesses: the sooner you detect them, the better chance you have of extending your car’s lifespan. The cost of early-stage repairs is also significantly cheaper than fixing a car once it has broken down.

Taking charge of vehicle maintenance 

It is important for everyone – particularly people who do not have detailed auto knowledge – to work with a trained professional to set up a regular maintenance schedule.

Engine oil degrades over time 

As you drive, soot, oxides, heat, and blow-by gases can contaminate your engine oil, causing it to get dirty and degraded. Even oil that is left idle will oxidize and degrade as it comes in contact with air – meaning that you should change your oil at the recommended time even if it seems like you just had it changed. AB Auto Town recommends that you have your oil changed about every 3,000 miles.
