Does Your Car Need an Oil Change at 3,000 Miles?

As a driver, you have probably heard that it's important to change the oil on your car every 3,000 miles. In addition, you should have a spare tire, an emergency kit, and be prepared if you get stuck on the side of the road.

There is no longer a need to change the oil on your car every 3,000 miles. At Fox Marquette, we recommend consulting your owner's manual to determine when you need an oil change. The typical car can have the oil changed every 7,500 miles. Years ago, oil changes were recommended every 3,000 miles. With technological advances, this is no longer a standard recommendation.

Check your manual and don't rely on the recommendations of businesses that make money off of more frequent oil changes. Contact us today at Fox Marquette to learn more about your specific vehicle and the correct interval at which you should get your next oil change.
