When Is Your Car Due for an Oil Change?

If it's been a while since you purchased a new car, you're probably still thinking you'll need to get your oil change every 3,000 or 3,500 miles. However, the new technology that is used to create vehicles has changed all that.

Most modern cars only need an oil change every 7,500 miles or so, and you can even find a few models that need the oil changed every 10,000 miles. The chemistry of oil has significantly changed over the years, and several manufacturers are now using synthetic oils, which can improve the way your car functions.

When you get your oil changed too often, you'll spend unnecessary funds maintaining your vehicle, and you'll be using excessive oil, which is damaging to the environment. Be sure to check the owner's manual for your car to figure out exactly when you should bring your vehicle in for an oil change or another form of maintenance.
