I have an 07 hybrid and it has gotten its first oil change a while ago. How do i know when to take it in for maintenance?
Do i only take it in when the oil life is low, or do i have to watch the mileage too? I am a total noob so please help me out!
I have an 08' Civic Hybrid I purchased mid summer 2008. I am at 5600 miles and the oil meter is at 20%. I will take it in to get the oil change in a week to two. The manual says that when the oil meter is at 15%, an oil change should be performed. I don't see why changing it when the car tells you to should be bad.
I read somewhere that changing the oil prematurely is bod for your engine, though I doubt 3 months will be premature changing.
In the first year of driving my '08, maintenance minder has called for an oil change and tire rotate at ~8400 miles and again at ~16000 miles. The first time, I let the minder go to 5% and the second time I took it for service at 10%.
I changed out the cabin filter and the windshield wipers at the 16000 miles service as well.
