Being conscious about your vehicle's health is a good thing, but you shouldn't spend unnecessary time or money doing so. One of the most common ways you can overspend on your vehicle is by taking it in to get the oil changed too often. Too often could be changing the oil every 3,000 miles.

Reasons Not to Change Oil Every 3,000 Miles

Most newer vehicles are built to go more than 3,000 miles per oil change including some as far as 10,000 miles. Three thousand miles was appropriate on older vehicles, but the reason many mechanics still push it is because it means more money for them, and the 3000-mile sticker is a great marketing method. The other reason it's good to change oil less often is because it's more environmentally responsible to have less oil changes.
