One of the most common questions we get is pretty simple. When folks should bring their Audi vehicle in for an oil change? Furthermore, why are oil changes so important? What do they do for your Audi model?

Here at Audi Tysons Corner, we work hard to make sure our drivers are informed. This is especially true about servicing your car. So why are oil changes important?

Put simply, oil changes help change out dirty, sludgy oil with fresh, clean oil. The more you drive, the dirtier your oil gets. When your oil is dirty, it creates more friction within your engine. That, in turn, creates more heat. If you don’t change your oil, this can irreparably harm your engine. Changing your oil thus helps protect your vehicle’s longevity on the road.

Changing your oil can also help return your vehicle to its normal level of fuel efficiency. When your oil gets dirty, it affects your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, reducing it. By changing your oil, you can return your vehicle to its normal efficiency. That can help you save gas at the pump!

So when should you bring your Audi model in for service?

The general rule of thumb is either after 10,000 miles or twelve months – whichever comes first. However, your user manual will have a more specific timeframe that you can adhere to.
