What Is Your Bentley Oil Change Interval?

Service Technician changing the oil on a vehicle


All new and pre-owned Bentley models require regular oil changes, and the Bentley oil change interval is generally 10,000 miles or 12 months—whichever comes first. Many Los Angeles-area Bentley drivers don’t exceed 10,000 miles a year in their Bentley vehicles, so in most cases, oil changes are completed based on the amount of time that has passed since the last oil service, as opposed to the number of miles driven. Since precise Bentley oil change intervals may vary from model to model, or from year to year, it’s advisable to check your owner’s manual for exact guidelines on how often to change your oil.

What Else Should You Know About Bentley Oil Change Intervals?

There’s more to completing an oil change than you may realize. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for future oil changes:

  • What else will you need when performing a Bentley oil change? When you have your car’s oil changed, get an oil filter replacement as well. Our parts center has a wide selection of genuine OEM Bentley parts, which we use during every service.
  • What kind of motor oil is required? Only synthetic oil is approved for your Bentley. Synthetic oil is more expensive but lasts longer and is recommended for high-performance vehicles, like the Bentley Bentayga Speed. The 10,000-mile Bentley oil change interval listed above assumes that you’ve employed an approved synthetic oil product, so you should stick to this interval in all cases.
  • How often do you need to change synthetic oil if your Bentley sits for long periods at a time? No matter what, oil breaks down over time and will lose its potency. Even if you let your Bentley sit for long periods at a time, the oil will break down if you wait too long between changes. That’s why it’s generally advisable to schedule an oil change at least once per year. For even better performance, it’s worth it to schedule a Bentley oil change twice per year, as the seasons change.

How Much Does a Bentley Oil Change Cost?

A Bentley oil change costs roughly $500, but exact pricing can vary depending on the model in question. We know that some may be tempted to reduce their Bentley oil change costs by going to a non-certified mechanic or trying to perform basic maintenance at home in Glendale or Burbank, but you should always entrust your vehicle to an authorized Bentley Repair center like our own.

Moreover, with a highly-complex Bentley vehicle, you might find that the oil change process is considerably more trying than you’re used to. You will likely need to raise the vehicle off the ground and remove the undercover before you can even get started. Even experienced DIY wrenchers will be testing their skills if they’re used to working on other models.

The Bentley Authorized Repairers at Bentley Pasadena know exactly what your vehicle requires, and our specialized, state-of-the-art service center allows us to accelerate the process without compromising on quality. If you do decide to forgo the Bentley oil change cost and replace your motor oil at home, talk to a service expert first. We’ll ensure that you have the correct products and equipment for the job.

When Should I Check My Car’s Oil Level?

It’s a smart idea to check your car’s oil level at least once a month. Newer Bentley models all include electronic oil monitors, so you can read your oil level without getting your hands dirty. Simply check your dashboard every so often and watch the oil level gauge. Older Bentley models may still have a dipstick, and with some models, you may have to check the oil level manually. Regular checks help ensure there are no leaks, which can be detrimental to the engine’s performance and even lead to lasting damage if left unchecked. If you notice anything unusual, schedule a service appointment as soon as possible to get an oil change at Bentley Pasadena.
