Volkswagen Semi-Synthetic Oil Change in Bedford, MA

Motor oil is the combustion engine's lifeblood, and it experiences compositional change, losing its lubricative properties and collecting debris when subjected to the engine's extreme environment. Routine oil changes remove the broken-down motor oil and keep the engine cleaner with peak lubrication. Getting oil changes as recommended is necessary for maximum fuel efficiency and the longest-lasting performance. Choosing us for semi-synthetic oil change service ensures Volkswagen certified service quality completed by a certified technician with genuine OEM parts.

Semi-Synthetic Motor Oil Overview

Semi-synthetic motor oil has a unique composition that blends conventional and full-synthetic oils' features, explaining why this motor oil is also called synthetic blend. The additional synthetic base stock makes semi-synthetic oil's viscosity thinner than conventional but not as thin as full-synthetic. The additional additives make semi-synthetic oil's resistance to thermal breakdown better than conventional but not as good as full-synthetic. Blending conventional and full-synthetic also increases the price of semi-synthetic above conventional but lower than full-synthetic. The improved performance beyond conventional and lower price than full-synthetic make semi-synthetic motor oil a popular option for those wanting advanced lubrication and engine protection without paying the premium price of full-synthetic.

About Switching from Conventional to Semi-Synthetic

Volkswagen owners whose engines have accumulated higher miles often switch from conventional to semi-synthetic for improved viscosity, internal component protection, and extended engine life. Although the higher-mileage threshold is not mandated, the commonly accepted automotive industry rule-of-thumb is 75,000 miles. If your Volkswagen's engine is lubricated with conventional oil and is approaching or beyond 75,000 miles, we invite you to discuss switching to semi-synthetic motor oil. Our knowledgeable advisors can guide you before your next oil change at Minuteman Volkswagen.

What is the Recommended Semi-Synthetic Oil Change Interval?

Volkswagen recommends semi-synthetic oil changes every 5,000 to 7,500 miles with lower-end adjustments needed for vehicles driving in severe conditions, such as frequent short trips under 5 miles, extreme heat, freezing, dirty environments, continuous stop-and-go driving, and carrying heavy loads. Be sure to discuss your Volkswagen's driving conditions and semi-synthetic oil change interval if you have questions regarding the ideal schedule.
