After you buy a new vehicle, you may wonder, “When should I get my first oil change?” While many drivers believe that they need to “break in” a new engine, modern vehicles don’t follow the same guidelines as cars of yesteryear. New cars are ready to go out of the gate, so it’s important to know your oil change interval. However, this depends on a number of factors, including type of vehicle and driving style.

Oil Change Interval

Generally speaking, the standard recommended oil change interval is every 3,000 miles or every 3 months.

  • Check your oil level every month to ensure everything looks normal.
  • High performance cars may need more frequent oil change and low-mileage drivers may be able to space out their appointments even further.
  • Consider researching the benefits of conventional vs. synthetic oil, so you get exactly what you want during your appointment.
