Driving a vehicle means that at some point you have to maintain it. One of the things you have to do most often is have your oil changed. If you consider yourself to be handy, chances are you might have changed your own oil before. Having an expert technician change your oil and filter will result in many benefits for you. Because Thomas Team Honda wants to help make your life easier, we outlined some of the best benefits of leaving your maintenance to the professionals.

You Don't Have to Clean Up

Once you remove the oil drain plug, there's no going back. Oil will go everywhere if you're not careful, so you have to wear gloves and avoid spills on clothing or the ground. Anyone who does laundry knows how difficult it can be to get any kind of oil stain out of clothing.

It Will Save You Time

In addition to the mess, if you don't know exactly what you're doing, this process could take a lot longer than it would for a trained professional to change it. You might spend more time reading directions online than actually changing your oil and filter.

It Will Save You Money

Changing your own oil takes up a lot of time, but it can be more expensive than you think. It requires you to buy the right materials as well as have the correct tools to get the job done. All of these little expenses can begin to add up, and before you know it, an attempt to save money has turned into a bigger ordeal than you intended.

We're not saying don't check your own oil level, but when it comes to service, it's best to leave it to the professionals. You can save your money and even more valuable time when you bring your car in for service at Thomas Team Honda, where we're committed to excellent service every time.
