Not everybody puts a ton of miles on their vehicle each week. Someone who is retired usually only takes their vehicle around town within a few miles’ radii. The stay-at-home-mom who doesn't have to commute to the office each day will have minimal mileage on her vehicle. How does this affect oil change intervals? Should the oil still be changed in your vehicle even if you haven't been adding up the miles?

Volvo Cars San Diego suggests that your vehicle receives routine maintenance to ensure it's working properly, but oil changes may not be part of this routine if you're not driving more than 600 miles per month. It's a general rule of thumb that you shouldn't be changing your oil if it's not dirty. Checking your oil with its dipstick each month will determine if an oil change is needed. Also, make sure you're driving your vehicle at least once every couple of weeks.
