Picture this: You hop into your car on your way out for an adventure packed weekend with your friends, put the key into the ignition, start the car, and you see the dreaded oil change reminder light come on.
“UGH! How can it be time for another oil change? Maybe I can wait til after the weekend”.
“The car still works and sounds good. I’ll just go next week”
“Dang it. I forgot to go this week. One more week won’t hurt”
“Ok. This time for real. I’m going in before the weekend”
Sound familiar? If so, no worries because we have all been there and done that at least once in our vehicles’ lifetime. It seems to be that the oil light reminder always comes on when we are the busiest, and putting it off is just the easiest thing to do. Putting it off doesn’t seem like a bad idea at the moment, but the reality is that waiting to get your oil changed can cause significant issues for your vehicle.
