Don't Believe the 3,000 Mile Oil Change Myth


A vehicle that has been getting its oil changed every 3,000 miles is not only wasting money, it's wasting oil as well, which in turn can contribute to pollution. This is because these drivers are creating an excess of waste oil that then has to be treated and refined. This unnecessary practice of having your oil changed too frequently is a practice that we here at Toyota of Brookhaven do not recommend to our customers.

Instead, you should take a couple of minutes out of your day to come and see us and we can look up your specific make and model of vehicle to see how many miles it can actually go before an oil change is needed. The 3000-mile rule should not be followed anymore because of the advancements to both vehicles and motor oil over the years. We have vehicles that are engineered and equipped with technology that allows them to go further than ever after a single oil change, saving you money and time and saving the earth from waste.
