Be sure to check your owner’s manual for your manufacturer’s recommendations for scheduled maintenance services. You may be surprised to find out that most modern cars, trucks or SUVs can go far longer than the old adage of getting your oil changed every 3 months or 3,000 miles. This is because vehicles are being manufactured to a higher degree of quality. That being said, it is all dependant on your driving habits and driving conditions.
It is important to keep in mind that your factory’s suggestions for service are based on ideal driving conditions, long stop and go commutes combined with extreme weather can quickly be considered severe driving conditions which can significantly shorten time between service intervals.
