How often should you get an oil change? The things you hear can greatly vary. For newer vehicles, a good idea is to get an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. However, the best way to figure this out is to check your owner’s manual. With newer vehicles you can also generally trust the oil life monitor for your next change. Either way, it’s a good idea to do monthly checks on your oil level just to be on the safe side.
Your tires are a vital part of keeping you safe on the road, so why wouldn’t you make sure they are properly maintained? Use the penny trick to make sure your tires have enough tread left on them. If your tires are too worn out, you’ll be able to see the top of Lincoln’s head if you place a penny head first into the tread grooves on your tire. If part of his head is covered by the tread, you’re good to go for the time being.
