Re: It never hurts to change your oil...

I really dislike the 15,000 mile oil change schedule. It's more a marketing tool than anything else. The oil is your engine's lifeblood. DO NOT neglect it.

Trying to save $40-$50 on a $40k+ car just doesn't make any sense.
I'm with Vince on this one... :smile:
