Outdated Myths: The 3,000-Mile Oil Change

Changing your motor's oil every 3,000 miles is history, but some people refuse to let go of old habits. Newer vehicles, or ones built within 20 years, do not need the frequent change of oil. Just like any other company who wants profit, the oil industry gives this idea to people as a marketing strategy.

The technology of modern cars has significantly improved, and the cars in question can handle traveling for thousands of miles without an oil change. After you buy a car, check for the manufacturer's recommendation in the manual.
