Agreed. If you are not comfortable with the minimum guidelines set forth by the manufacturer and feel more comfortable with more frequent service routines then all the power to you. :biggrin:I've owned many 4-cylinder cars, and I don't feel comfortable going 7500 miles without an oil change.
But then again, I'm a whole different story, since I'm using synthetic...and I still change it around 4K-4500 mile intervals.
I for one will be going with Synthetic and changing during "old school" intervals. One of these days I may increase the time in between if I don't notice any considerable change in the fluids but until then - better safe than sorry.
On a side note - love the forums and all of the creative minds I see in reading posts.
