We recommend those with models from 2007 or before to get their oil changed every six months or every 5,000 miles, depending on which comes first. Those with 2008 or later models should go in for an oil change every six months or every 7,500 miles, also depending on which comes first.

Why Oil Changes are Important

Oil changes do more for your vehicle than most people realize. So, staying on top of your milage and oil status is more than just keeping your vehicle healthy and functioning. Let's go over a few more benefits of regular oil maintenance:

  • A Healthier and Longer Lasting Engine: Protecting your vehicle's engine will help maintain your vehicle's overall value. Oil keeps your engine working properly by providing lubrication and preventing the buildup of harmful materials like dirt particles. You can't always foresee or prevent issues that require vehicle repairs, but by maintaining your oil, you will give your engine the best chance at having a long life.
  • Improves your Gas Mileage: Driving long distances or spending a lot of time in city traffic is not only frustrating, but it can also be expensive since you are more likely to have to make frequent stops to refuel. You can save time and money and improve your gas milage by making sure your car has the proper amount and quality of oil.
  • Keeps Your Engine Clean: Over time, your engine can produce a buildup of dirt or sludge that can cause damages and therefor expensive repairs. To avoid this and other engine issues, it is important to take your vehicle in for its oil change on your recommended schedule. Chances are, you have put a lot of money and time into finding your perfect vehicle, so make sure you keep its engine clean with consistent oil changes.
