Hi, I see in interval maintanance said that we have to change oil and maintain the car every 5000 miles or 6 months, which one comes first. But I drive only 5000/year. My question is, Could I do routine check up & change oil every 5000 miles or 1 year? Thanks you so much

    6 months is the required interval because -- condensation builds up in engine oil as it sits, and you could have too much moisture in your oil. Do the proactive service.
