When should I get my oil changed?
The 3,000-mile oil change guideline has likely been around longer than your parents have been driving. Many drivers still stand by it today. There are a lot of arguments here, as many of us have been rewarded with a reliable vehicle after religiously changing the oil at 3,000 miles. By today's standards that may seem low, however, we like to see the vehicles more often than most so we can help our customers maintain and avoid break downs.

However, studies show that might be a placebo effect. While an oil and filter change is cheap preventative maintenance on say a $30,000 vehicle, everyone from Edmunds to the New York Times agrees that the 3,000-mile oil change is no longer applicable in today's vehicles. The rules have changed with the tech of the last 50 years. With the innovations in tighter build tolerances and higher-quality synthetic oils, many sources suggest a 5,000-mile to 10,000-mile oil change should be the new normal.
