When should you change the oil in the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta?

September 7th, 2017 by

Most drivers here in California will agree that the Volkswagen Jetta is a favored model for those who desire top levels of efficiency, durability and longevity throughout its lifespan. However, the Jetta model is only able to run at peak performance when it’s getting the right amount of oil inside. Today we’ll show you how often you should be changing your Jetta’s oil supply, so you can have a better idea of where you stand!

2017 Volkswagen Jetta recommended oil change intervals
Back in the old days of engine construction, the rule of thumb was that you should be changing your oil supply every 3,000 miles or so to prevent nasty sludge buildup in your motor. Since today’s synthetic oils are made of much stronger and more efficient materials, you can easily drive between 5,000-7,000 miles before needing to get service done!

The benefits of changing your oil at about this mileage go far beyond just keeping your engine running; a new oil supply every six months or so can also help to keep your motor lubricated, in turn making it more efficient for longer!

2017 Volkswagen Jetta recommended oil type
All oils are built differently, and as such it’s important to know which type you should be putting into your engine. With the Jetta (and many other four-cylinder models) this is 5W30 motor oil, easily available at any auto parts store and even here at our service center! You’re sure to be getting a top-of-the-line batch every time you stop by.
