How Often Do You Really Need to Change Your Oil?

What did the local quick lube tell you last time you got an oil change? Was it a different mileage than a dealer told you? Does your car’s owner’s manual say something else entirely? Did a relative or friend give you different advice on oil changes that you can’t verify?

Many people still think that all cars need an oil change every 3,000 miles. The reality is that there’s a lot of confusion out there about proper oil change intervals. How do you know who is right?

In fact, there is no single number of miles for oil changes that works for all people and all vehicles. For starters, every manufacturer today recommends something different for their vehicles. Dealers and mechanics may recommend one thing while your car’s manufacturer says something else. It can all feel a little overwhelming!

So, where do you turn for answers you can trust? Where will you find the best service for you and your car?
