Your Vehicle May Not Require an Oil Change Every 3,000 Miles

If you're still changing the oil in your vehicle every 3,000 miles you may want to read this article. Here at Prime Volvo Cars South Shore, we like to make sure that you have all of the information you need on hand to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape.

We all know that routine oil changes can help to keep our vehicles running efficiently. However, the old routine of changing the oil in vehicles every 3,000 miles may be a thing of the past. In fact, cars built in the last two decades don't need their oil changed near as frequently. Cars built in the last two decades on average need to have their oil changed once every 7,500 miles.

This number, however, could differ if you drive under severe conditions such as hauling heavy loads long distances or traveling in harsh weather as these things can add additional wear and tear to your vehicle as well as shorten the life of your oil. If you have any questions about when you change the oil in your vehicle the friendly staff here in Hingham, MA is always happy to help!
