How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed? Our Hyundai Service Experts Answer Your Question

Modern engine technology has come a long way since the invention of the automobile. In recent years, the standard 3,000 mile requirement for changing your engine’s oil became an outdated practice. Now many service technicians will tell you that the vast majority of auto brands require oil changes at intervals between 5,000 – 10,000 miles as standard practice.

If you want to enjoy many years of worry-free transportation in your Hyundai vehicle, it is important that you schedule routine maintenance. Hyundai Motor America provides a recommended service schedule for all new models right in your owner’s manual, and the service team at Keith Hawthorne Hyundai of Gastonia is here to help you service or repair your vehicle by ensuring that you keep up with the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance plan for your specific model. Many new Hyundai cars with turbo engines do well with oil changes every 5,000 miles.

Look through your owner’s manual or consult with a Hyundai service specialist to determine the recommended intervals for oil changes. Under normal driving conditions, many modern vehicles can go at least 5,000 miles between oil changes but if you are accustomed to driving under severe conditions, you may want to have your oil changed more often.

What constitutes ‘severe’ conditions when determining how often you should change your oil? Driving through gritty or sandy terrain, extreme temperatures, high altitudes, and frequent start-and-stop traffic patterns all can contribute to the need for more frequent oil change services. However, you should always consult with your owner’s manual or a trusted mechanic to determine the correct oil change intervals for your vehicle.

When it’s time for you to seek an expert’s opinion on when you should change your oil, we invite you to bring your car to our Hyundai Service Center in Gastonia, NC to discuss your automotive concerns with our skilled technicians. We look forward to maximizing your vehicle’s recommended service schedule to suit your particular driving needs!
