Hyundai Oil Change FAQs


How often should you change your Hyundai's oil?

Every vehicle is unique, so you should always refer to your owner’s manual to see the grade, viscosity, and change frequency of oil recommended for your vehicle. Generally, you should get an oil change every 6,000-7,000 miles or six months—whatever comes first. However depending on how rigorous your driving habits are (like off road driving, carrying heavy loads, driving in dusty conditions, extensive use of breaks, extended period of idling, or driving at low speeds for long distances), you may need to change your engine oil every 4,500-5,000 miles.


What does an oil change include?

During an oil change, a Hyundai trained technician will empty the motor oil from your engine and replace it with new synthetic or conventional oil. The oil filter will also be inspected, and if no longer working, will be replaced.

Garvey Hyundai also included a free, quick Multi Point Inspection with every oil change to check any adjustments that need to be made as your car ages. 


What are the benefits of regular oil changes?

Better engine health, performance, and gas mileage are all benefits of replacing your oil frequently.

Besides the upfront benefits, regular oil changes allows mechanics to inspect your car more frequently other issues like belts, brakes, batteries, other routine maintenance. Having a mechanic look at your car on a frequent basis like during a regular oil change can save you from potential disasters down the road.


How does long oil change service take?

Generally speaking, oil changes should take no more than 15-30 minutes once our certified technicians begin working on your vehicle. If other factors are discovered during the oil change or multipoint inspection that require automotive repair or other services, the process will take longer.

Typically what takes the longest time is waiting for your car’s turn. In order to save time and skip the waiting process, you can schedule your oil change online using our appointment scheduler.
