Is 3,000 The Magic Number To Change Your Oil?

If you get nervous when it comes close to driving 3,000 miles between oil changes, you don't have to. While getting an oil change every 3,000 miles used to be standard, this is no longer the case. Even if your parents are telling you that it's time to get an oil change, it's time to pay attention to your owner's manual instead.

Most cars can now go 7,500 miles in between oil changes. Some manuals recommend 5,000 miles while others recommend 10,000. When you need an oil change depends on the make and model of your car.

Here at West Herr Dodge, we are ready to help you keep your car properly maintained. If you aren't sure what your oil change schedule is, we can talk with you about the schedule for your specific vehicle. When you are ready to get an oil change, our service center is waiting for your call.
