If you own a car or truck, you know that one of the most important regular maintenance tasks you have to have done is an oil change. But what if you don't drive your vehicle that much, using it only for short trips around Amherst? Can you delay getting your oil changed?

The answer is no. Your vehicle likely has a recommended mileage and recommended number of months after which you need to get your oil changed. Say your owner's manual says you need an oil change after 7,500 miles or six months. Even if you only drive 5,000 miles in six months, you still need to get your oil changed. Waiting longer than the recommended interval to get your oil changed could lead to reduced performance and even damage to your engine.

When it's time to get your oil changed, come see us at Virginia Select Auto for professional and courteous service.
