The 5 Best Places for Oil Change in Dubai

Oil change is a critical maintenance service for every automobile out there. Without regular oil changes, the oil inside the car turns into sludge and stops from reaching every part of the vehicle.

So we scoured the city to give you the best places for an oil change in Dubai.

We’re also sharing with you the factors we considered in choosing, and will be answering some FAQs about oil change in the city.

How much does oil change in Dubai cost?

The cost of having your car’s oil changed depends on the type of vehicle, the kind of oil that is needed, and the company’s rates.

To give you a starting point, we’ve made a table of the cost of an oil change depending on the type of engine oil being used.

Note that these prices are exclusive of the facility’s own pricing and rates, as these vary from one center to another.

The Best Places for Oil Change in Dubai

Before we get right into our top picks for the best places for an oil change in Dubai, here are the factors we considered for our entries on this list:

Utilizing the latest best-in-class technology to deliver the highest standard of repair and maintenance in Dubai, The Gearbox is more than equipped to perform all kinds of maintenance tasks for any kind of automobile.

We love how we got assigned to specific mechanics that specialize in the car we had as each mechanic in its garage has expansive experience on specific types and brands.

However, having specific mechanics specialize in one area means that some mechanics will be full and unavailable, and thus cannot accept some specific kinds of cars.

The service was accommodating and we really appreciate them for letting us know the details and possible issues that may arise according to the things they’ve observed during the oil change.

And it’s great that they took the initiative to bring these up because The Gearbox offers so much more services that go farther beyond maintaining vehicles.

From repairs to paint jobs and customizations, The Gearbox has state-of-the-art equipment to face mechanical problems head-on.

And getting our car was super hassle-free, too! The Gearbox picked up and delivered our car back to us for free.

So it does not matter that it only has one location in the city, because its reach covers the whole area, and saves customers the hassle of having to bring it in themselves.

Pros

  • Mechanics are experienced and specialization in their own areas
  • Accommodating service
  • Covers all kinds of mechanical services

Cons

  • Some mechanics are not available for specific kinds of cars

Customer Reviews

Excellent customer service

Excellent customer services, very reliable and do a great job on the car. They are also much quicker than many of their competitors and also as they deal with very high-end cars, their prices are much more reasonable than many many in the area, though the guy made a huge list of parts and write all the prices without confirming with any dealer. They did give me a big list of work that was not immediately needed and upon inquiring they said it can last another 6 months plus easily so I did get the work done that was really needed. The manager is quite a young guy and I think still has a lot to learn especially when dealing with customers, a smile goes a long way. But I am sure with time, he will get better though, with me, he was quite okay. All in all, a happy customer.” —Mohammed Akhter, Google Reviews

Would definitely recommend

“Land Rover Defender just came out of service contract from the dealership and immediately taken to the gearbox for new service contract. I’ve been in contact with the workshop manager for a while and all my expectations were met, really recommend their contract as you’ll get to enjoy loyalty discounts and exclusive offers. Will be coming back soon for next Land Rover Major Service.” —Jordan Greyson, Google Reviews

With veteran management and experienced mechanics, 1337 Mechanic has the knowledge and skills to back up its promise of providing high-quality services.

With mechanics with at least 20 years of experience, these veteran professionals know their craft and their way around machines.

The service is just as great. Operated by highly experienced Emirati car enthusiasts in USA & UAE workshops, the staff takes their craft seriously.

What we appreciate about 1337 Mechanic’s service is that it’s honest. Its confidence in its staff’s competence allows it to guide and let us know arising issues within our car.

Other than its excellent routine maintenance services, 1337 Mechanics also does common repairs, classic car restorations, fleet maintenance, and pre-purchase inspection.

We really like the fact that its services cover everything from pre-purchase all the way to restorations. 

Amazingly, the team’s skills can provide niche services that are very much sought-after amongst car enthusiasts.

However, we would have liked to see services focused on beautifying and customizing vehicles as its experience can really ensure that any alterations to the car are safe and won’t cause damage.

Another weak point is the lack of accessibility that the 1337 Mechanic provides. Not only does it only have one location, but it also doesn’t provide pick-up and delivery services for convenience.

Pros

  • Mechanics have 20 years of experience
  • Operated by experienced car enthusiasts
  • Wide range of services

Cons

  • Lacks customization services
  • No pick-up and delivery services

Customer Reviews

The best garage in Dubai

The best garage I have come across in Dubai. Mr. Abdul Aziz is friendly, very honest which is hard to find these days, and has a lot of knowledge when it comes to cars. His team is equally amazing.  I highly recommend it this garage to everyone who is looking for a fantastic service.” —Moni Eldred, Google Reviews

Great garage!

“This was the first time to use their services and definitely not the last time, the way they explain the issue and show in details and keep following up and so specific with the issue that you aiming for. Trustworthy, and they earned it very well

Recommended hundred times, will always be back for any other services required

Mr. AbdulAziz was more than magnificent and he is such a gentleman

Keep it up always and inshallah for the best always” —Islam Saleh, Google Reviews

With state-of-the-art facilities in multiple locations, including one at a gas station, zDegree is always a stone’s throw away from everybody’s house.

With experienced and certified mechanics in the shop who specialize in a wide range of car brands, zDegree is a garage that can perform routine maintenance checks for every car owner.

And the service is just as great. The staff that we encountered was very accommodating and friendly, they even showed us the lounge where we could wait for our oil change to be done.

zDegree offers more than just oil changes and routine maintenance tasks, too. It handles repairs and pre-purchase inspections and specializes in tire services.

However, we noticed that it lacks customization and styling services, which we think is a missed opportunity because zDegree has the equipment to accommodate this — all that’s missing is a team who specializes in it.

And as for the accessibility, this garage is almost unbeatable. With 3 locations in Dubai, an online tire shop, and mobile van services, zDegree provides the most convenient and efficient service out there.

It definitely is its strongest point because not many garages in Dubai have multiple locations that cover 4 districts nor a van service that is one call away to cover the rest of the city.

Pros

  • Experienced and certified mechanics
  • Accommodating and friendly service
  • Has a wide range of services
  • Has multiple locations all over the city
  • Offer mobile van services for convenience

Cons

  • Lacks customization services

Customer Reviews

Excellent and timely service

“Excellent and timely service – so parts were made available very quickly once the diagnosis was made. The repairs, despite being quite complex, were down very quickly. I was very well looked after extremely well by Abid – very responsive and excellent at keeping me updated! Much easier dealing with helpful people! Thank you.” – Martin Tarr, Zomato

Satisfying service

“Excellent service by talented staff @ reasonable cost-effective price.

Thanks to Mr. Shabbir and his team for their great efforts, technical knowledge, and timely work for both cars.

Used their services at both the ZDegree branches located at Al Qouz and DIP and always had a fully satisfactory experience

1000% peace of mind, pocket-friendly, reliable, trustworthy, careful, clean work for vehicle maintenance

Keep rocking guys you are great 👍🏻” -Farook Ruwala, Google Reviews

With a whopping 42 locations all over Dubai, AutoPro is one of the largest networks of automotive facilities in the metro.

Its car care professionals are more than certified to perform mechanical tasks. They are also certified to teach as AutoPro has an academy for budding prolific mechanics.

We love that it doesn’t let the number of its garages bring down the quality of its mechanics, and even ensures that it continuously has highly competent ones with its academy.

Another great benefit to having multiple locations is the number of customers coming in is spread thin, so we really got an immediate and quick service without any hassle.

The staff was pretty unbiased and honest when it came to our car, too. They really took the time to give their professional opinion on what needs to be done to prevent issues that may appear in the future.

However, when it comes to the shop’s range of services, there is only so much you can fit into smaller multiple garages.

While it still covers the basics, such as common repairs, it seems that oil change, car washing, and emission testing are the only maintenance services it offers.

As for its accessibility, well what else can we say? It has more than 40 locations in Dubai, so it’s no surprise to us that it feels like Autopro is there every time we turn a corner.

Pros

  • Has over 40 locations in Dubai
  • Mechanics are certified to perform mechanical services and teach them
  • Quick and efficient service
  • Wide range of services

Cons

  • Lacks more maintenance services

Customer Reviews

A member of the Professional Auto Service, an elite performance network, Wheels Spa is an independent automotive service facility with world-class standards.

Its 32 technicians are certified by service experts in the industry and operate under global standards for automotive services.

We also like that besides oil changes, it has a variety of maintenance services and does common repairs.

However, we noticed that it really lacks a specialized focus on some automotive repairs that could give it the edge against other competition.

We would have liked to see it offer car restoration services since Wheels Spa has a knack for fixing and maintaining luxury cars.

Despite that, it shines in the quality of service it provides. The service was quick and the receptionist was attentive and friendly.

We enjoyed a cup of coffee while waiting for our oil change to be done while the mechanic also came up to us to explain the whole process and gave us a few notes to help maintain our car better.

However, its accessibility is definitely one of its weakest points. We understand that being an independent service facility means it is more difficult for it to expand.

Despite that, Wheels Spa makes up for its only one location with great mobile auto services. 

We just wish it would include maintenance services because it only accommodates repair jobs.

Pros

  • Has 32 certified mechanics
  • Covers all common repair and maintenance services
  • Quick and efficient service
  • Offers mobile auto repair services

Cons

  • Only has one location
  • Lacks specialized services

Customer Reviews

Impressed with the quality of service

Highly recommend. The owner is very customer-centric. Good value, fair price, and most importantly HONEST ASSESSMENT!!!” – Kash Rafique, Google Reviews

Will definitely come back here

“Super happy with the service. The Guys at WheelsSpa are very friendly, polite, and fast.

Absolutely coming back here again and not even thinking to look for another Mentanence company. Recommend all my friends to visit WheelsSpa.” – Erma Lotosova, Google Reviews
