Question:
Dealer Suggested Going 10,000 Miles Between Oil Changes on Mobil 1
I own a 2007 Nissan 350Z with 21,000 miles. I'm on my 2nd oil change at the dealer at intervals of 3,750 per the owner's manual. I started using Mobil 1 and changed my intervals to 5,000 miles. I spoke with a service manager at a Nissan dealer who told me I could go 10,000 miles. That kinda blew my mind. This is my first newer car. My older ones I always changed at 3 months or 3,000 miles. My question is this --  is the 5,000 mile interval I am using ok and or could I go to 10,000 miles interval? I don't want to discount new technology and just say no since I'm used to going 3 months or 3,000 miles. Also technology has changed, and oils and engines are way better. Let me know what intervals are recommended for Mobil 1 in my 2007 350Z. I live in Houston, Texas
