Car maintenance: 101

September 7th, 2009 by

So, how often do you need to change your engine oil? According to the wise folks at, 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!
