Oil Pouring From Container

Volkswagen oil change prices vary depending on the model you drive, location, and service provider. For example, the average cost of a VW Jetta oil change is around $99 to $134 not including taxes and additional fees. The average cost for the larger VW Tiguan SUV, on the other hand, is around $126 and $159 not including taxes and fees. Again, these are estimates and the price you pay may be different.

Why Are Oil Changes Necessary?

Oil absorbs heat and contaminants from the engine and lubricates its moving parts, preventing friction and overheating. Skipping oil changes causes a buildup of contaminants and eventually weakens the oil, turning it from a light amber color to dark brown or black. When the oil breaks down, it loses its effectiveness. This means the pistons are in danger of welding to the cylinders due to overheating. Regular oil changes keep your engine's oil fresh and clean and help prevent engine damage or a breakdown.


When is it Time for an Oil Change?

Oil change frequency depends on your car. Check your owner's manual for the exact interval or speak with one of our VW certified technicians. For most VW models, oil change service is recommended after about 10,000 miles. If you use your vehicle for any of the following, double-check with our VW service team for guidance:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing
