Oil Changes Every 3,000 Miles? It's Not Necessary

Many drivers dutifully take their cars to the mechanic shop to have their oil changed every 3,000 miles. Even though you might think that this is what you are supposed to do, you should know that for most modern cars, this simply is not necessary. Here at Mercedes-Benz of Santa Fe, we know how important it is for you to take good care of your vehicle and stay on top of your regular maintenance. However, we do not want for you to waste your time and money having your car's oil changed more frequently than it has to be.

That's why we advise that you speak to one of us or look at your car's manual to determine how frequent your oil changes should be. You might find that your car only needs an oil change every 5,000 or 7,500 miles. If this is the case, you can avoid wasting money and time while ensuring that your vehicle is properly maintained by only taking it in for an oil change at this frequency.

Fortunately, we are here to help our local Santa Fe, NM drivers. If you need an oil change and want to have it done by a shop and a team of technicians that you know you can trust, call us. We will help you schedule a maintenance appointment so that you can have your car's oil changed and take care of any other necessary maintenance in a timely manner.
