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; you can find a RepairPal Certified Shop near you.  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.

Note that oil changes are not covered under the CarMax MaxCare extended warranty. Our article has more information about the CarMax MaxCare service plan.
