Why You Should Not Change Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles

In the past, you would change your oil every 3,000 miles or so. This was standard practice and ensured that your vehicle would operate well. However, this is no longer the case. If you are continuing to change your oil every 3,000 miles, then you are simply wasting money and contributing to environmental pollution. Vehicles today are designed to go longer between oil changes. This is because today's engines are more advanced and efficient than those used in the past.

Synthetic oil is also more efficient than the oil used in past years. You do not need to change it as frequently. Today many cars have an oil change lifespan of about 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles. Check your owner's manual to see when you should be changing your oil.

We at Day Audi will be glad to help you determine which interval is really needed to keep your car functioning. So, save yourself the time, the money and do the environment a favor by coming into our Monroeville, PA for your next oil change. We won't make you do unnecessary oil changes as other places will.
