Oil Change Every 3,000 Miles? Relax, You Probably Have Another Few Thousand Miles to Go

Getting your oil changed is just a part of taking good care of your vehicle. When you see the number on your windshield sticker get close, you know it's time to make an appointment. There's only one issue with this scenario. Chances are, you're being told that your vehicle needs service way before it actually does. Riverhead Toyota is happy to clear up this common misconception many folks seem to still subscribe to. Your oil doesn't need to be changed every 3,000 miles if you have a modern vehicle.

While our elders always told us this was a "rule" of sorts, modern vehicles generally only need oil changes every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. If you're uncertain, check your owner's manual or contact Riverhead Toyota for the exact intervals.
