When you’re driving through Los Angeles in your FIAT 500 every day, there’s no doubt you want to keep your 500 running smoothly for years to come. And to ensure that comes true, regular oil changes – with the correct type of oil – are essential.
Whether you plan on performing a FIAT 500 oil change at home or leaving it to our local service center, you should only use 5W-30 oil in your FIAT engine. Learn more about this type of oil and how often you should get a FIAT 500 oil change with our service experts at FIAT of Glendale today.
5W-30 oil is a multigrade oil and is commonly used throughout the auto industry. This thinner type of oil is well-rounded, and performs well at most average temperatures, making it ideal for those of us who live in Pasadena or Burbank. There’s a reason you’ll find many brands on the market that sell this type of oil and that many vehicles use it. While some drivers in Los Angeles have a favorite brand of oil, so long as it says “5W-30” on the package, it’s safe to put in your FIAT 500 engine.
At some point in the past, many drivers perpetuated the idea that you should follow 3,000 to 5,000-mile interval for oil changes. These days, that interval has increased to every 7,500 to 10,000 miles due to advancements in oil and engines alike. For the FIAT 500, your recommended oil change interval is 8,000 miles. However, many drivers still like to stick to the 7,500-mile limit just to err on the side of caution.
When you go to a Santa Monica area service center, you can expect your FIAT 500 oil change to cost anywhere from $90 to $120. This accounts for the cost of labor and the cost of parts, but the price may vary depending on where you live.
