Introduction:Having your oil changed in your vehicle is pretty important. People who forget or neglect to have their oil changed regularly are asking for even bigger trouble, but here are the top five reasons getting a simple oil change can be quite expensive.

  • 01

    Money

    It is extremely important to have your oil changed regularly in your vehicle. Having your oil changed at a station is how most people prefer to have this done. It would really save people a lot of money to learn to change the oil in their vehicles themselves and avoid having any extra charges.

    One of the top five reasons getting a simple oil change can be quite expensive is that even if you are paying only $20 for an oil change, it is much cheaper to just change the oil in your vehicle yourself.

    It is quite simple to learn how to change the oil in your vehicle which would save you a lot of money. You would also have the pride in knowing that you have learned how to master this new task.

    Inspection

    Another one of the top five reasons getting a simple oil change can be quite expensive is that even though people are already worried about the cost of an oil change, it is pretty normal for problems to arise.

    One of the first things that many people hear when they go to a station for an oil change is that they are due for an inspection. Car inspections are really not that expensive, but they can be expensive if you end up having extra work done on your vehicle.

    I would not advise avoiding having an oil change for this reason. If your car needs an auto inspection, you really should have it done even if it does include extra work needing to be done on your car.

  • 03

    Tires

    There are many reasons why getting a simple oil change for your vehicle can be quite expensive. One of these reasons would be that you will often hear from your mechanic that your vehicle needs new tires.

    Your vehicle may need an entire new set of tires. Bringing your car to a station for an oil change really is not any fun at all. People always worry about how much their $20 simple oil change is really going to cost them.

    Obviously, people do not expect to be buying any tires when they go for an oil change. This problem does arise often, though. It is extremely important to have a good amount of tread on your tires, so if you need tires you should find a way to afford buying them. Your vehicle will be much safer for you to drive with a nice set of new tires on it.

  • 04

    Brakes

    Another one of the top five reasons that having a simple oil change done at a station can be quite expensive is that you may be told that you need new brakes for your vehicle.

    This is a problem that many people face when going in for a simple oil change. As long as your auto inspection is not due at this time, you may be able to wait on this one.

    It would be wise to check around on the price of new brakes for your particular vehicle. It is quite common for brake jobs to end up being very expensive.

  • 05

    Minor Problems

    If you are planning on bringing your car into the shop for an oil change, do not end up getting angry when you are told that there are other minor problems with your vehicle that are in need of repair. This happens very often, and it can end up being quite expensive.

    Although nobody wants to pay for any extras when they bring their car in to the shop for an oil change, they really should have any minor repairs or problems fixed as soon as possible. This will end up being more expensive, but minor problems can quickly turn into huge problems and often do. It is really important to avoid any chances of having a huge problem on down the road even if it does end up causing your simple oil change to be an expensive one.
