There is so much to know when it comes to cars. For example, when to change your oil, what sort of tires to get, and how often to schedule a tune-up. A plethora of common car myths make car maintenance even more confusing.
At Lancaster Mazda, we help our customers make informed decisions when it comes to both buying and owning a vehicle. So, let’s debunk the top three common car myths right here now:
- Premium is the Best Fuel for Any Car
Don’t think your car needs premium just because it’s called “premium.” Check your owner’s manual; if it says to use regular, then use regular.
- Oil Must Be Changed Every 3,000 Miles
This one was true way back in the day (you know, that ancient, bygone era of the 1990s), but today’s new vehicles are much hardier and require less oil changes. For most cars, an oil change every 6,000 miles will suffice.
- Bigger Cars Are Safer
Safety in driving really boils down to how you drive, not what you drive. Focused, road-aware drivers will always be safer, whether they’re driving a Hummer or a compact car.
Enough myths—here’s one car fact that we can guarantee: buying your next car from Lancaster Mazda is easy and fun! Visit us today to test drive any of our brand new Mazda vehicles.
