Car maintenance: 101
So, how often do you need to change your engine oil? According to the wise folks at Honda.com, there are a number of factors that come into play. Here are some things to consider:
- Climate. Indiana is home to plenty of extreme weather. Summers are stifling hot, winters are bone-chilling cold. All of Mother Nature’s ups and downs can take their toll.
- Drive time. Are you a high-mileage warrior, or do you tend to drive in shorter spurts? Daily diving patterns can influence your car’s performance.
- Location. Where do you do most of your driving – on highways or city streets? If you’re a stop-and-go driver, you may need to be on the lookout for increased wear and tear.
Routine maintenance will keep your car in tip-top shape. At Don Ayres, we suggest you stop in for an oil change every 3,000 miles. Come in for a $12.95 oil change today!
