How Long Should an Oil Change Take at a Service Center?

When you choose a Land Rover-certified service center to change your oil, the oil change itself shouldn’t take long, especially if you schedule an appointment ahead of time. However, if you stop in during peak hours there may be a delay. You can always call in to the dealership to get a better time estimate, and they will probably tell you that earlier in the week or first thing in the morning are less busy times to go.

At Land Rover Charleston, Parkersburg-area drivers can take advantage of benefits like:

  • Rotating Land Rover service specials and parts specials
  • Service covered by the Land Rover warranty
  • Land Rover Prepaid Maintenance Plan options
  • Use of genuine Land Rover parts
  • If you don’t mind waiting longer, technicians can also perform a full vehicle service and inspections as part of the Land Rover maintenance schedule

For luxury models, it’s not usually recommended to get your oil changed at a big box chain like Jiffy Lube. The technicians aren’t Land Rover-certified, and since there is no accountability to the brand your vehicle may not be getting the luxury treatment that you’ve invested in.

How Long Does It Take to Change Oil Myself?

Depending on how familiar you are with what’s under your vehicle’s hood, and whether you’ve performed frequent oil changes on other models, the time it take to change the oil will vary. It’s smart to budget at least an hour in case you run into issues, and be sure to have the following materials ahead of time:

  • Fresh oil, a new oil filter, and a new oil filter gasket
  • Rubber mallet, correctly sized wrenches, a jack, and wheel blocks
  • Gloves, rags and towels for protection and easy cleanup

If you don’t already have these materials, it will likely take less time and cost less to rely on your Parkersburg-area authorized Land Rover service center to change the oil.

Recommended Oil Change Tips

New vehicles typically need oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles as part of routine maintenance, and some models can even go 10,000 miles between oil changes. But if you have an older model your vehicle already has a lot of miles on it, you may need to get it changed every 3,000 miles. Your owner’s manual will list the recommended oil change interval for your model, and it will also specify whether you need synthetic oil or conventional oil.
