5 Reasons to Make Costa Oil Your Professional Oil Change Service

Changing your vehicle’s oil on a regular basis is crucial for the performance and longevity of your car, SUV or truck. Motor oil performs a number of very significant functions that contribute to the overall health of your vehicle’s engine including proper lubrication, temperature regulation, contaminant removal, and cleanliness. Regular oil changes extend the life of your engine, reducing the likelihood of major mechanical failures and the need for expensive repairs or replacements.

When it comes to automotive maintenance, changing the oil is a relatively straightforward process. While it’s not as simple as replacing your air filter or wiper blades, an oil change is something that many experienced vehicle owners choose to do themselves instead of having it done by a professional.

For the most part, changing one’s own oil is viewed as a cost and/or a time savings, and a reassurance that the job has been done correctly. For some, changing the oil is something they do because they can (and therefore, they “should”). For others it’s a gateway to learning more about automotive maintenance in general, or it may even bring up a fond memory of a relative or role model teaching them how to change their oil.

If you relish the task of changing your own oil, good for you! A job well done is something we can all appreciate, especially if you can do that job on a nice, warm afternoon with a cold beverage and some great tunes!

On the other hand, if changing your oil has become a chore you don’t look forward to or you don’t have time for, we’d like to toss our hat in the ring and share these factors for making Costa Oil your oil change service professional.

Fast, friendly service without upselling. We’re not your average quick lube!


At Costa Oil, our simplified business model allows us to price our services well below the competition. We offer a proprietary motor oil that meets all API and SAE specifications and, because we buy in bulk, we can pass the cost savings on to our customers. Along with our very competitive pricing – typically the lowest price of any quick lube and definitely lower than a dealership – we also offer discounts for first-time customers, military veterans, rideshare drivers, loyalty programs for returning customers, and frequent special offers available on Facebook.*

*Discounts and offers vary by location.


In addition to our standard motor oil, many of our locations carry brand name motor oil. If you prefer a specific brand that your local Costa Oil doesn’t carry you can BYOO (Bring Your Own Oil) and we’ll do your oil change for a small fee. You get the same professional service from our experienced technicians, and you don’t have to worry about disposing of the used oil because we’ll do that for you, too! As for your oil filter, you can bring your own or choose from our selection. We also have air filters and windshield wiper blades if it’s time to upgrade either of those. And speaking of upgrades…


Unlike other quick lube brands, our employees receive competitive compensation so they don’t have to rely on commissions to bring home a decent paycheck. In fact, we don’t pay commissions at all for selling services or parts. We want you to be able to trust our recommendations, and we’ll never recommend a service or part we don’t think your vehicle needs at the time of service. Our customers really appreciate our honest, no “hard sell” approach!


We stay true to the original quick lube model, which saves our customers a lot of time! By only doing oil changes, and doing oil changes all day, we can get customers in and out with a professional oil change service quickly. We believe in this model so much that “10-Minute Oil Change” is part of our brand name! We know that your time is valuable, and we like to give it back to you every time you visit.


All Costa Oil locations are outfitted with the right tools to do the job right. Whether it’s a special oil filter wrench, a safe way to access the undercarriage of the vehicle, and even an environmentally responsible way to dispose of used oil and filters, Costa Oil has it covered. Our technicians are trained to work on all makes and models of vehicles. It’s also good to know that Costa Oil began as a family-owned company. As we have expanded, we have passed down our core values to all of our locations. We strive to be a positive force in our communities and to reflect these values in everything we do.
