How Often to Get 2015 Volkswagen Golf Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Golf’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2015 Golf’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Golf may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Golf. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Volkswagen Golf Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Volkswagen Golf. Volkswagen has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2015 Golf. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Golf's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Golf by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2015 Volkswagen Golf Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Golf engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Volkswagen Golf engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
