How long can you go without getting your oil changed?
I have a car I bought new that just hit 12,000 miles. I had only 1 oil change since I got it. The sticker said that I was scheduled to have it changed at 8k but was also told that new cars do not need to have their oil change every 3k miles like older cars used to. They said I could go 5-10k miles before changing it. Is that true?? I've been hearing conflicting info on this. Either way I am going to have it done next week, but I'd like to know for future reference. In case it matters: 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5S w/ CVT (Continuously variable transmission) transmission
