Did You Know It's a Bad Idea to Change Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles?

You have probably heard throughout your life that it's a good idea to take your car to the shop to have the oil changed every 3,000 miles. This might be something that your parents taught you, and you might have heard it from others along the way as well. What we think you should know here at Santa Monica Ford is that this is actually a myth.

With most modern cars, you can go much longer in-between oil changes. This is especially true if your vehicle uses synthetic oil. Of course, you should still keep up with oil changes as recommended for your vehicle. Just don't assume that you're supposed to get oil changes every 3,000 miles; instead, check with your dealer for the appropriate recommendation for your vehicle.

You can avoid contributing to excess oil disposal, which can be bad for the environment, and you can save quite a bit of money over the lifespan of your car as well. Simply learn more from our knowledgeable staff at 1230 Santa Monica Blvd today!
