One of the most essential maintenance services you can perform on your vehicle is an oil change. For most newer cars, the oil needs to be changed every 5,000 miles. You should consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual for your vehicle’s recommended intervals.
Your car may be strong and built to last, but it can’t run on gasoline and verbal coaxing forever. Eventually, you’ll have to get your car’s oil changed, brakes checked, and fluids replaced. All of these actions are part of regular automotive maintenance that keeps your vehicle running smoothly on the road.
