The 3,000-Mile Oil Change

January 31, 2017

You may have heard that the 3,000-mile oil change is no longer necessary. However, it's actually more necessary than ever. Here's why: Today's cares are more sophisticated than before, they cost more and likely you will keep your car quite a long time as it's a substantial investment.

In the 'old days', it might have been easier for you to know when something was wrong with your car and identify the problem. It's not as easy to do so these days and small problems can lead to bigger ones if not taken care of properly.

We at Automotive Specialties suggest you stop in to see us every 3,000 miles for an oil change. This is not only a good investment for the longevity of your engine when done frequently, but provides an opportunity for us to see how the engine is doing based on the condition of the oil. It also gives us a change to have a look at the general condition of your car and perhaps discuss any concerns you have.
