How Often Do You Really Need an Oil Change?

It's common knowledge that car servicing businesses will always encourage an oil change every 3,000 miles. Generally. this averages about every 3 months for most people; around four times per year. While this doesn't seem like much, most of the time newer vehicles do not necessarily need this service as often as drivers think.

If you are considered a low mileage driver, this means you work pretty close to home, and most of your errands are near the same area. It is perfectly safe for your vehicle to have an oil change at every 5,000 miles. Low mileage drivers generally drive less than 30 miles a day.

Drivers that tend to put more mileage on their vehicle on a daily basis should continue having their oil changed at the 3,000-mile mark. If you question which category (high/low mileage) you fall in, please contact our team at Tom Holzer Ford and ask them for professional advice.
