How Often Do I Need to Get an Oil Change?

A routine oil change on your new Kia model can be performed every 6,000 miles, though it is important to check your owner's manual for more information. An oil change is one of the most rudimentary, but sometimes overlooked, means of keeping your engine in-tune and free from long-term damage. When you empty the oil in the tank, replace the oil filter, and pouring in new oil, you are effectively preventing the buildup of toxic sludge, corrosion, and long-term engine damage that can negatively impact the vehicle's performance and longevity. While oil changes can be difficult to perform yourself, we offer a different approach here at Penske Kia Chula Vista: simply schedule an appointment with our on-site service center and we take care of your next oil change right here at our Chula Vista dealership, proudly serving El Cajon.

Keep Your Kia Model Running Great!

You might here, often times, that an oil change should be performed every 3,000 miles you drive your car. However, when it comes to a new Kia model, you typically can go for 6,000-7,000 miles in between oil changes thanks to the efficiency of our many Kia sedans, hatchbacks, and SUVs, as well as the synthetic oil that powers them. In previous years, vehicles ran on authentic oil which degraded much quicker than synthetic oil, resulting in vehicles that required much more frequent maintenance. With that said, it is important to consult your instruction manual to find out how long your Kia model can travel in between oil changes as certain pre-owned models might have different mileage requirements than other Kia models.
