Default Re: New dealer policy?

Let me tell you what I do:

I do the oil change myself every 2 months, no matter what.

You can change the oil yourself, no need to take the car to the dealer or another place, it's very easy.

I do it on Saturday mornings, this way almost all the oil goes to the pane during the night; then, I leave it draining for about 1 hr.

About your question, it depends on the use you give to your car, if you do a lot of stop-go city driving, well, 5,000 seems to many miles to wait for another oil change.

Mine is a 1996 Camry V6.

For the last 35,000 miles I had my 2002 Camry oil changes done by local Toyota dealer, each time the widow sticker suggested that the next oil change be done at 3,000 miles intervals and I did it.

This morning I had my oil changed and the window sticker suggested that the next oil change be done at 5,000 miles interval, is this change from 3,000 to 5,000 miles is a policy change or only a mechanic addition mistake ?
