Making Sense of Motor Oil Myths

Understanding the ins-and-outs of motor oil can often be confusing. Our expertly trained associates are here to help you debunk some of the most common motor oil myths. One of the most misunderstood aspects of motor oil is how often your vehicle needs to be serviced. Many people believe that oil must be changed every 3,000 miles. The truth is that this number is dependent on the vehicle's make and model and the amount of driving that you complete in between changes. Some cars can go up to 7,000 miles, and it is recommended to check your owner's manual for details on proper motor oil maintenance.

Another debunked myth is that your oil should always be changed before a road trip. If your car is not due for a change, it is fine to wait until you return. We invite you to stop by Mercedes-Benz of Macon today and let our associates service your car and find the best oil for your vehicle.
