3,000 Miles is Too Little Between Oil Changes

The standard mileage between oil changes used to be 3,000 miles, but this has changed dramatically in recent years. With better technology, many cars can now go 5,000, 7,500, or even 10,000 miles before needing an oil change.

Why do mechanics still recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles?

It's a hard habit to break and a routine that has been around for decades. In addition, telling you that you only need to come in every 7,500 miles for oil changes will lose the garage money.

The best way to find out when you need an oil change is to check your owner's manual. This will include a clear maintenance schedule for your vehicle, including how often you should be changing your oil.
