How often should you have your oil changed?

May 14th, 2012 by

Once upon a time, having your oil changed every 3,000 miles was a hard and fast rule.

Today? It’s not so black and white.

Cars made in the last 10 years or so have improved oil chemistry and engine technology. Simply put, this means you can break the ‘ole 3,000-mile rule and still be just fine.

In many cases, newer cars can go about 7,500 miles between oil changes. Our service technicians, however, suggest that you stick to a 3,000-mile schedule to maintain optimal engine performance.

The good news? If you happen to be running a bit behind, it’s not that big of a deal. Your car will be just fine, and we’ll gladly fit you into our schedule as soon as we can.
