Re: Oil change schedule

Yeah, they won't change it, and tell you they did...as you can see, I have trust issues.

Damn, I never thought of it like that. I'll keep my eye on the oil and filter before I bring it in next.

Re: Oil change schedule

Unless you're doing some extremely hard traveling, change it by the manufacturer's recommendations, not the dealer's. The later wants your money...and the sooner they help you use up your freebies, the sooner they can reach back into your pockets. Your 2014 oil change interval is every 10,000 miles or 12 months or when the onboard computer tells you it needs done. Not 3,000 miles. That wastes oil and wastes money.

They are trying to train you to do it at 3K.
They can also get away with cheaper oil if they change it that frequent.

I pass on my free oil changes. I also have the first few changes analyzed.
