I purchased a 2006 Honda Civic in September and was wondering when do I go for my first oil change. Do I go every 3,500 miles?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Beverly, Engines are much more efficient now than they used to be. Most likely you won't need to change your oil every 3,000 miles, but more like 7,500 miles. Look in your owner's manual. In the back they give maintenance schedules which will tell you exactly when they recommend changing your oil. Good luck with your new Honda, it's a great car! Lori Johnson
