When Should I Get My Oil Changed in Dover, DE?

When Should I Get My Oil Changed in Dover, DE?

  

Unfortunately, there is far more incorrect information on oil changes out there than we at Price Honda would like. That’s why we’ve decided to put together a few rules that you should try to follow when it comes to swapping out the oil in your car. If any questions arise as you read, feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience.

Checking Your Oil

If you can’t remember the last time you brought your ride in to get an oil change, it’s time to pop the hood and find out. Simply locate the engine and find the adjacent dipstick, which is typically a circular yellow rod next to the powertrain. From here, you’ll want to pull the dipstick out and wipe it off before placing it back inside. After waiting a few minutes, remove the dipstick once again and check the bottom to make sure the oil is at the proper level. If its not, you’ll want to bring your ride into our Service Department as soon as possible. If you’ve got the right amount of oil, you’ll want to check to make sure that it’s still good. You can do this by looking at the color and the consistency of the oil. If it’s thick and dark, you should probably change it out when you get the chance.

Timeline

If you can remember when the last time you swapped out your oil is but just don’t know how long oil stays good for, we’ve got your back here at Price Honda. Most experts agree that three months is a good rule of thumb. That being said, you must also consider the number of miles you’ve driven. 3,000 miles is typically the maximum amount you want to drive before changing the oil.  Those who frequently cruise for long distances might exceed the 3,000-mile limit before three months have passed. If that’s the case, you’ll want to get your oil changed more frequently than every three months.

Service Department

If now is the time to get your old oil swapped out for a new batch, we hope you consider making your way to our Service Department. Our skilled technicians regularly perform this routine maintenance, so you won’t have to worry about spending your day off waiting for us to finish up. If you feel like reducing the number of trips you take to the mechanics each year, consider having us handle a few other automotive operations while you’re here. From wiper and filter replacements to full engine repairs, we can handle it all!

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “When should I get my oil changed in Dover, DE?” we hope this article has helped. Feel free to drop by Price Honda when you can at 4567 South Dupont Highway in Dover, DE. We can’t wait to meet you.

Had two Honda CR-V’s in for a recall fix. Easy to make the appointment. Beautiful facility. Very nice waiting room. Cars were finished before the estimated time given to me. Service people carefully explained what was done plus they did a free all points inspection. Love doing business with Price Honda sales and service associates.

I have been leasing Hondas since 1986, most of them in my hometown of Pennsylvania. We moved to Delaware five years ago, and I have now leased to Honda CRV's from Price Honda. Yesterday I turned in my lease and leased a new CRV with the help of Justin Silva. Justin was knowledgeable, professional and courteous, and able to answer every question I had. In addition to that, I found Justin to be bright and friendly as we worked through my deal. Over the years I have worked with many outstanding associates from Honda, and I would put Justin at the top of that list! He was patient and took the time to go over ever detail with my new vehicle. i love the car, and I thank Justin for all his help. Randy Durich Lewes, Delaware

5 Stars ALL THE WAY!! Justin and Isaac were amazing! It actually started out as a negative experience and wondering if we should not even pursue trying - but Justin and Isaac MADE THINGS HAPPEN! They took time to follow through, beyond the call of duty, and make this into a 5-star review. Very hard to do that, but they did - and we are grateful. See them, they will definitely take great care of your new or used car needs!

Great service. Fast service. Friendly and courteous shuttle drivers (older gentleman in the morning and younger one in the evening). I can’t recall their names but they were helpful with dropping me off at work and picking me up after work. My overall first time experience at this Honda was positive. Thank you.

Justin Silva was my sales associate, and he was super knowledgeable about all of Honda's products, and when there is so many question marks during the car-buying process Justin had a justified answer for every single one of them. He got me into the Honda Civic I initially inquired about, and made sure I left with everything I need, and nothing that I don't. An admirable fellow, who conducts business with efficiency and integrity. Ask for Justin Silva, and he will calm your nerves and pull you through... 5 stars all the way..

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Justin Silva! We set out yesterday to "just look" and ended up coming home with our new CR-V EX! Justin was very knowledgable, attentive and thoughtful - no pressure at all. He was very positive and friendly and went out of his way to be informative and helpful. The other sales and finance associates we dealt with were also pleasant and easy to work with. It has been the best car buying/leasing experience we've ever had. Thank you, Justin!!

Dwayne Stevens helped me purchase my second Honda yesterday and I absolutely love it! Dwayne's attention to detail and patience with me as he searched for the perfect car to fit my needs is unmatched. My family repeatedly returns to Price Honda for new cars and Dwayne Stevens is always our go to guy. His honesty, dedication, and professionalism is exceptional! I would highly recommend recommend Dwayne Stevens for anyone who is in the market for a new or used car.

My car had a recall on the piston rings but I was told the warranty ran out. Jenn worked on getting a reduced amount from $3600 down to $1500 for the rings & timing belt. Since I felt Honda should have been responsible for the entire piston rings job (not the timing belt),I felt a little betrayed. The car had been using oil for years which fouled the spark plugs, etc. but Honda Service said they have to wait for the car to misfire before they could do anything. Since I wanted to keep the car for a bit longer, I went ahead with the repair. Service person was pleasant & helpful.

Many thanks to Rafael Gomez! He selected my first Honda Civic two years ago and I loved it. After an unfortunate run in with a deer, I had to reach out to him to assist me with purchasing a second car. Again, he helped me pick out the perfect car! I can’t thank Rafael enough and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great experience and excellent customer service. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to show me how to use all of the new features in my new Civic. 5 stars, for sure!!!

I had the best experience last week at Price Honda in Dover, DE. My salesperson was Justin Silva. Justin went above and beyond to make sure I was getting everything I wanted and needed. That service was continued by the Sales and Financing managers, answering all of my questions and concerns. This is my second time in three years that I have been treated to professional buying experience that everyone should consider Price Honda! Be sure to ask for Justin Silva!

Took my vehicle in to diagnose an issue with shifting. Service associate David Root and technician listened to the concerns I had and continued to try to find a solution for the problem. Were informative and explained what they believed was the problem. Attempted to solve with computer updates prior to jumping into costly repairs.
