According to the manual, driving in certain conditions can require you to have the oil changed more frequently. These factors can decrease the life of your oil:

  • Repeated short trips (less than 5 miles)
  • Repeated short trips (less than 10 miles) in below-zero weather
  • Operating in hot weather in stop-and-go traffic
  • Extensive idling or slow speed driving for long distances
  • Driving in dusty conditions
  • Driving on rough, muddy or salt-covered roads
  • Using a car-top cargo carrier
