Routine oil changes are essential to your vehicle’s health. So, how often should you change your oil? Your oil change frequency will depend on the type of vehicle you have, which is why we recommend consulting your owner’s manual for specifics for your make and model. However, a majority of the new Kia models today require an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles thanks to advancements in automotive technology over the last decade.Learn more about proper oil change frequency below with Carolina Kia of High Point.

Determining Your Oil Change Frequency

Typically, it is recommended that you get an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. However, some vehicles require a higher oil change frequency than others. You will also need to adjust your oil change frequency if you regularly do any of the following types of driving on Greensboro roads:

  • Heavy towing
  • Off-roading
  • Racing
  • Commercial use

Checking Your Oil Levels

We recommend checking your oil level at least once a month to prevent any unexpected problems when you’re on the road. If you notice any changes in your oil’s texture or color, do not hesitate to bring your vehicle into the Carolina Kia of High Point service center, as this can be a sign of serious underlying issues.

Oil Change Frequency Tips

If you want to keep your vehicle in pristine condition for years to come, be sure to take a look at the following oil change tips:

  • Oil eventually breaks down regardless of how often you drive your vehicle, so you should always aim to change your oil at least twice a year.
  • Always remember to change your oil filter when you get an oil change. If you need help finding the right oil filter for your Kia, our parts center is happy to help!
  • Consult your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your vehicle. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
