Jiffy Lube Drops 3,000-Mile Oil Change Recommendation

Vehicle manufacturer-recommended oil change intervals have increased well beyond the traditional 3,000-mile interval in recent years. Ford recommends 10,000-mile drain intervals with its 2011 vehicles, while vehicles equipped with electronic oil monitoring systems often allow extended drain intervals of up to and even beyond the 10,000-mile mark.

Most recently, Jiffy Lube has also abandoned the traditional 3,000-mile drain interval, recommending customers follow the manufacturer-recommended interval. The new recommendation is currently in place at more than 70 percent of Jiffy Lube locations, with the balance expected to participate by the end of the year.
