One simple, yet very important, way that you can ensure the health and longevity of your vehicle is to schedule routine oil changes. Our Acura service center is here to help you stay on top of your routine service and car care needs. When it comes to getting your oil changes, it’s important to remember that every vehicle is different, even two different Acura models’ service and maintenance schedules will differ. We always recommend that new car owners review their owner’s manual. The manual will have a section that is devoted to your engine care and maintenance schedules. This section will reference after how many miles you need to get an oil change as well as what type of oil should be used. While there will be a “mileage recommendation”, it’s also important to consider how long the oil has been in your car. For those drivers who don’t drive their car frequently, you won’t accumulate as much mileage in the same amount of time. If the oil has been in your car for over a year, we recommend changing it as dust can accumulate, leaving it contaminated.

Clean oil is important as it results in an engine that runs more cleanly and efficiently, and creates better engine performance. To get your oil changed on your Acura car or SUV, head on down to Acura of Peabody to speak to a member of our team today!
