Breaking in a new car is no longer necessary, but getting that first oil change will always be vital. When is the best time to get the first oil change on a brand new car? Make sure you change it for the first time at 1,500 miles, unless the manufacturer has a different recommendation for your vehicle.

Benefits of an Oil Change

Changing your oil is the number one thing you can do to extend the life of your car. It keeps your components clean and lubricated, and it's especially important to time it right the first time. That's because when the vehicle was manufactured, the mating surfaces scratched against each other, and metal particles that resulted need to be flushed out and removed so they don't damage the engine.
