I am in the market for a new car since both our cars are more than 10 years old, worn and tired. My Nissan Serena is 15 years old and I just sold it recently. I was kind of a sad and relief to see it go. Now we are getting around in a Perodua Kelisa which is a rebadge model of the Daihatsu Gino. It's old ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden ) Since the children are all grown, we decided 1 car is enough for both of us. I was browsing the internet looking for a suitable car for the both of our needs and I was surprised that the oil change interval on almost all new cars had not changed since the day I started driving which is like 40 years ago. Cars technology had improved by leaps and bounds and so is lubrication oil. Some lubrication oil manufacturer claims that with their lubrication oil, oil change interval can be extended. However with the car manufacturers, as far as I know some German car maker have increased the oil change interval from the norm of 5,000km or 3,000miles. So what do you think? With today's advanced technology shouldn't all new cars oil change interval be increased? Increased oil change interval is very beneficial to the enviroment and our pocket too!!!
