Short Answer: CarMax offers oil changes starting at $40. Regularly changing your car’s oil is an important part of keeping your engine in good working condition.

Does CarMax Do Oil Changes?
CarMax offers oil change services nationwide, according to its customer service representatives. CarMax oil change prices vary depending on vehicle type, but they start at $40 for standard oil and $60 for synthetic oil. CarMax oil changes are by appointment only, so you’ll need to contact your nearest CarMax location to set up a time for service.
CarMax has Service Center locations in most states. The company also partners with RepairPal to offer more locations; find a RepairPal Certified Shop near you. Note that RepairPal shops do not perform repairs under CarMax’s limited warranty — if your CarMax car is still under warranty, you will need to take it to a CarMax Service Center for covered repairs.
Also, note that oil changes are not covered under the CarMax MaxCare extended warranty. Our article has more information about the CarMax MaxCare service plan.
