The numbers are in and the results positive. Today’s cars last an average of 11.4 years with proper maintenance. The numbers are drastically reduced when cars are not a part of a regular maintenance program.
A regular oil change is just one maintenance routine that impacts the life of a car. While some car manuals suggest oil changes are only needed every 6,000 – 10,000 miles, many don’t read the fine print that states the car can burn up to one quart of oil for every 1,000 miles traveled—Requiring a 6 quart car to change its oil every 3,000 miles.
Check with your mechanic and determine the best maintenance schedule to extend the life of your car.
