Second, read your owner’s manual -- in particular the section on regularly scheduled maintenance. There’s no better investment you can make in your car. You’ll see the returns in the form of fewer major repairs (especially if you plan to keep your car beyond two or three years) and longer service life. Ultimately, you’ll save money.
Third, consider using synthetic motor oils. Synthetics offer drivers peace-of-mind every day because they provide the maximum protection for your engine. And even if you have your oil changed for you, it’s easy, since most dealerships, independent repair shops and oil change retailers offer synthetics. You’ll just need to specify a synthetic, such as Castrol Syntec.
“Most drivers want to keep their cars as long as possible,” says Mike DeBiasi, product manager for Castrol Syntec. “Driving safely, performing scheduled maintenance and using synthetic oils that outperform conventional motor oils is a great triple play for engine and car life.”
Recently, Castrol conducted tests under grueling conditions, beyond anything a car might encounter, to demonstrate that Syntec outperforms conventional oils and ensures the best protection for engines in family cars, SUVs and other passenger cars. The engines filled with Castrol Syntec outlasted the engines filled with conventional motor oil. The tests found that Syntec provides a level of protection that outperforms leading conventional oils.
“Given how we all rely on our cars to get us to work, run all those errands and help us visit friends and family,” DeBiasi said, “regular oil changes using synthetic oils may be the most efficient and effective way for drivers to protect the vehicles they rely so heavily upon.”
