Oil changes are an important part of your regular maintenance, but your vehicle deserves much more than just an oil change. Our recommended 5K service includes an oil change, but it also gives us an opportunity to inform you about what is going on with all of the systems of your vehicle. . By going over every system on the vehicle each time we service your vehicle, we can prepare you for repairs that may be coming in the next few months. That way you can be mentally and financially ready to schedule those repairs at your convenience, as opposed to when they break and leave you on the side of the road.
Why every 5000 miles?
Some manufacturers recommend longer intervals (10,000 miles) between oil changes for normal driving. However manufacturers recommend shorter intervals for severe driving. While you may not consider yourself a severe driver your vehicle does. Severe driving would include stop and go traffic and extended idling on a regular basis. Which is very common around our region.
