Im with you on that.If i was to only keep it for 4-5 years i would follow the MM too as the car will still have a ways to go before any issues may arise if changing the oil per the MM intervals caused a problem,which i dont think it will.
I really want mine to last 200,000+ because after the...
I drive @90% highway miles so i was guessing i would have went 10,000 miles easily before hitting 10% oil life.Way to much to go before changing my oil.I need this car to last 200,000 miles at the least.I bought it to be my mule to travel to work and save miles on my Tacoma 4x4 and to save money...
Hit 6400 miles today with 50% left on the oil life meter
Went ahead and changed the oil and filter at the dealership,wont be going beyond 5000 miles from here on out.
My dealership agrees with my idea of 5000 mile oil changes and not the MM oil life
My 2017 LX is a manual but i am getting 40-41 mpg on the hwy and i keep the speed between 68-70
I have never seen my mpg drop below 40 mpg between fill ups.Best i have gotten is 44mpg and thats with winter blend gas,summer blend should net 2-3 more mpg
I am getting 41-42 mpg with the winter blend gas and i hardly use the brakes.
Hoping to get at least 200,000 -300,000 miles which should take me 10-15 years to get.Thats why i bought it to be a mule to drive back and forth to save miles on my Tacoma
When i bought mine the dealer put the oil change reminder on the inside of the windshield and verbally told me to change it at 5000 miles which i intend to do.
I am thinking my oil life will be at 70% when i hit 5000 miles
I have my insurance set for a $0 deductible on my comprehensive coverage.Only costs me an extra $16 every 6 months
I had a rock fly p and hit my windshield when i had less than 1000 miles on my coupe in the upper passenger side
Put a small nick in it but no cracks yet.
