Changing your vehicle’s oil regularly is a necessity, not a luxury. Like so many other components for your vehicle, your engine oil is a “part” and it is designed to be replaced regularly in order to protect the expensive components of your engine.
At Honest-1 McKinney, our recommended engine oils include various weights of both full synthetic and synthetic blend motor oil. Recommended oil change intervals can vary considerably by manufacturer, but the range for most vehicles is generally from 3,000 – 6,000 miles or 3 – 6 months, whichever occurs first. As a rule of thumb, a full synthetic oil change will probably cost about twice as much as using synthetic blend, but it may also last about twice as long. As such, if you change your engine oil at the recommended OEM intervals, the long-term cost difference between using full synthetic vs. synthetic blend may not be as much as you’d expect.
The demands your vehicle puts on your engine's oil are very unforgiving, and eventually the oil loses its ability to lubricate, cool, clean and flow freely. In fact, not changing your oil regularly will substantially reduce your engine's life span, and oil is much cheaper than steel!

If your vehicle has a diesel engine, we can also help you take care of your diesel engine oil change requirements.
At Honest-1 Auto Care, we offer convenient scheduling and competitive rates on all your oil changing needs. While we perform your oil change service, we will also perform a free comprehensive vehicle inspection (CVI) and send you the results as a digital report by text and/or email. For your added convenience, we also recommend that you consider getting your vehicle’s tires rotated during each oil change service. In addition to extending the life of your tires, it also allows our technician to perform a more thorough “wheels off” brake inspection.
So bring your vehicle into Honest-1 McKinney for "auto care the way it should be".
