Oil changes today should ideally be done every 5,000 miles, thanks to modern formulations that help keep lubes working longer. In fact, the interval can get as high as 10,000 miles for some cars (BMW says their cars can be driven for 15,000 miles before an oil change is needed). That being said, there’s no harm in changing oils too often, save for the added investment.
However, when you go to a service center for an oil change, you have to be ready to put your foot down if you’re offered other extra services that you’re not prepared to spend on. A reputable Georgetown auto service center, such as Georgetown Shell, will respect your decision, whether or not your car really needs more than an oil change.
