The Best Oil Changes Take Longer Than 10 Minutes – Stay on Track with Full Oil and Fluid Servicing
*Additional Costs for diesel and synthetic
Reis Automotive doesn’t do “drain and fill” oil changes. Unlike the quick-service oil change stops designed for convenience, our local mechanics care about prolonging the life of your vehicle, as well as saving you money by helping you avoid costly auto repairs. A thorough oil change, as recommended by your car’s manufacturer, simply takes longer than 10 minutes and requires more tools and work than a drive thru mechanic can provide. At Reis Auto, we keep your car for a full hour to complete a proper oil change.
Reis Auto’s oil change services differ tremendously from the other national “quick-fix” chains – you get better services at the same great price. For the hour we have your car, our mechanics will thoroughly inspect your vehicle and rotate your tires (which should be done alongside every oil change).
How Much Does an Oil Change Cost?
What Do the Numbers on Motor Oil Cans Mean?
|A grading system for lubricant viscosity characteristics over a range of temperatures:
Grades: 0W, 5W, 10W, 15W, 20W, 25W, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60
|SAE: Society of Automotive Engineers||5W: Viscosity rating at cold (Winter) temperatures||30: Viscosity rating at hot (212°F) temperatures|
A regular oil change with inspection and tire rotation will cost around $36. If your vehicle requires synthetic oil, which is more costly but is a cleaner, better oil, the cost will be around $65. Many cars made in 2013 or newer require synthetic oil.
How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?
Depending on your car’s age, make, model, and frequency of use, you should change your oil every 3,000 – 10,000 miles. If you cannot consult your owner’s manual for specific instructions, plan on every 5,000 miles to be on the safe side.
Consider changing your oil more frequently if you:
- Often make jackrabbit starts, heavily accelerate or drive at high-speeds
- You live in an extremely hot or cold climates
- You often drive on dirt roads
- Your engine is old and tends to burn oil
- You frequently carry heavy loads
Make sure your engine lasts as long as possible by scheduling regular oil changes with your local auto repair shop. Reis Automotive is located in Hales Corners and New Berlin, ensuring you get trustworthy auto maintenance near your home, at fair prices to boot.

Get the Best Oil Change in New Berlin
If you live in New Berlin, with its 228 miles of lineal roads, you likely do a lot of highway driving on your commute. Primary arterial roads of New Berlin - like Greenfield Ave, Cleveland Ave, Racine Rd, and Moorland Rd - have an average speed of 35-55 miles per hour. This means relative high speeds but also longer traffic lights with a lot of minutes idling in between.
If your daily commute involves a lot of stop and go driving in short bursts, you may need to get your oil checked more regularly. Typical drivers in modern vehicles can usually go 5,000 miles between oil changes, but you may need more frequent changes if you consistently drive in less than 10 mile trips, especially in cold Wisconsin winters.
