Re: Oil Brands/Oil Change Frequency
Actually the manual says every 7,500 miles OR 6 months, whichever comes first under normal driving characteristics. This is maintenance schedule 1
If any of these apply, you follow maintenance schedule 2:
Driving in dust
Lots of short distance driving
Driving using lots of braking
Driving in areas that use salt
Driving on rough and muddy roads
Driving in low speeds or excessive idling
Driving in very cold or humid climates
The bold font pertains to the conditions that affect oil life.
So if your car meets any of those points, more specifically the bold ones, the manual suggests you change every 4 months or 5 thousand miles.
I drive my car harder then 99% of the people I see on the road, so I know I'm putting more stresses on the components and fluids. Also the addition of my aftermarket parts make the engine work different/harder then from factory, so I think if you drive hard or have lots of mods you definitely should change a bit sooner. That's why I change mine every 4k or so.
