If I miss an oil change, will my warranty be voided?

Oil Changes

The oil in your new car is its life blood. Internal friction can decrease performance and cause severe damage to your engine. Regular oil changes are necessary to maintain your auto warranty. Plus, regular oil changes reduce internal friction.

You should have your car's oil changed every 3,000 miles—regardless of whether the manufacturer tells you to do so at longer intervals. Make sure you use the type of oil recommended by the manufacturer, and get the oil filter changed at the same time.
