Re: sorry yet another oil query

Personally, I don't think you can get 12K out of any oil, unless you are cruising at a nice constant speed in a clean environment. Stop / start driving around town, and occasional thrashing, put lots of demand on any oil, I think 6K is closer to the mark. When they specify 12K, they aren't giving you a 100K warranty

Re: sorry yet another oil query

Agree with mave: Totally false economy, if you are a private owner, who intends keeping the vehicle in good condition for a lengthy period of time.

The extended servicing claims IMO are balderdash!
Primarily to indicate the servicing charges are reduced to save costings to non-private purchasers. Three years on, or mileage related record, replace said unit.

If you are a private owner, and cherish your vehicle, wishing to minimise wear and tear, and the eventual expense thereof, drop that lubricant out,(transmission etc. as well!) change those filters, and disregard the claimed lengthy, srtetched, over the top,service recommendations.If it's on the 'Firm' don't bother, you will have it replaced, no worries! Off to the auction she must go!
