Our staff at Corwin Honda is well-versed in knowledge about anything Honda related; from individual models to financing and service questions that most customers might not know. One consistent topic has stemmed from high-mileage oils and their intended uses, which proves to be a situational decision that is best handled by knowing the warning signs that can predate the transition between oil fluids.

When should I switch to high-mileage oil?

Ideally, you shouldn't have to switch to a high-mileage oil. As vehicles age, their engines can become loose and begin to drip oil. This is often the biggest sign that your model needs to switch, while the only other recommendation arrives upon surpassing 75,000 miles. The reasoning is that high-mileage oils contain ingredients that protect engine parts from further damage, which can ensure a long-running ride.

Do I need to get my oil changed more often now?

If you have to make the switch to high-mileage oil, you don't have to expect a shift in your oil change schedule. Any differences in oil change frequency may be better attributed to oil leaks, which is a vehicle maintenance issue instead of a side-effect of the high-mileage oil itself.

At the end of the day, our staff members and service mechanics understand the confusion and complexities that can make owning a vehicle a bit difficult.
