Your owner's manual is the best guide to when to change oil.
I didn't read in your post if your car is gas or diesel. Gas engines need oil changes more often than diesel. That said, the single most important thing you can do to extend engine life is changing the oil at the recommended interval.

Hello Danes

Might be telling my age, in good' old days, changing the oil every 3 ooo miles was just a request for service. All under carriage, belts, tie rods, zerk fittings, tires were inspected and leaks were spotted, belts lubed.
A form of prevention maintance was done.
Now it is just quick in and out unless you tell them exactly what to do.
The they haveto made to show that it was done.
I have older but not ancient truck. Told service manager wanted to be sure u joints were lubed. . After it was finished, I asked to make sure all was serviced. Was informed by service manager there were no fittings on these newer cars, It's early 80's!! I took him back and showed him all 14.
Don't know if they don't know or just don't care.
Bought tires, said no tires with mfg date older than year. They installed 3-3 year old tires and 1 4 year old tire.
After long discussion, they finally agreed to take off and put my old tires on. Really P.O.d but As i stated to to them,they should have looked before installing.
Point is quick is fine, longer milage is fine but you better be up on what you think you are getting.
