How Often to Get 2013 Volkswagen CC Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen CC’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2013 CC’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your CC may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen CC. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2013 Volkswagen CC Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen CC motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your CC’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen CC spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
