Reasons to get an oil change at a car dealership

When you have a car, you do have to keep up with the maintenance of the vehicle. One of the biggest things you have to do is oil changes. I have personally never done an oil change myself. It seems like too much work. One of my friends, wanted to do an oil change on his two cars. We happened to be at Walmart when he decided to do this. We went to the automotive section no less than four times. He kept forgetting things. It’s a hassle to figure out exactly which oil filter you need and all the extra stuff to do it yourself. The oil filters are unorganized and they might even be out of them. Forget using the books and guides they supply at Walmart because they don’t even have all the cars in them. It’s really a pain. We spent twenty minutes each time we went back there looking for things. 

Another thing you would need is an oil pan. When you are done with the oil change you have to figure out what to do with the old oil. You can’t just flush it down the toilet or throw it in the trash. You have to dispose of it properly, which could mean going to the hazardous waste disposal place in your area. They always seem to have weird hours too. Something else you have to consider is space and having the proper tools to do an oil change. It’s honestly a lot of work. 

My friend who said he was going to change his cars’ oil said he never wants to do an oil change alone in case something happens. That’s probably a good idea. I personally think that going to your car dealership where you know they have knowledge of your specific make and model is the smart thing to do. You don’t have to worry about finding the right parts. You also don’t have to have any tools. You won’t lose screws or tools in your car. Just seriously go to your car dealership it will save you tons of time and you won’t have to worry about it.
