Oil changes are part of the reality of vehicle ownership in the 21st Century, just as they were a reality of vehicle ownership in the 20th Century. However, it still happens much too often that drivers put off this important bit of routine maintenance for much too long, and that’s something that can have devastating effects for the owner—not only in terms of cost of ownership, but also in terms of vehicle longevity.

How do oil changes impact the cost of ownership? Well, believe it or not, having a vehicle’s oil and filter changed regularly actually improves fuel efficiency, which means those oil changes can save you money long-term on gasoline expenses.

In terms of vehicle longevity, the whole point of getting an oil change is to make sure that the oil doesn’t get too thick and lose its ability to lubricate the engine. Those who wait too long are risking damage to their engine, which not only is bad for the longevity of the vehicle, but also is one more reason oil changes can actually save a driver money over time.

We suggest having this work done at your local Heritage | MileOne Autogroup dealership, as it helps us keep better track of the vehicle’s history. That means when you trade it in for something from our new car inventory, we have a better sense of how well you’ve maintained the car.

Our new and used car dealerships are great for sales, but they’re every bit as great for timely, affordable, friendly service. Next time you’re in line for an oil change, take it to a Heritage | MileOne dealership in the greater Baltimore, MD area and give yourself the peace of mind in knowing that you’re doing the best thing for your automobile.
