I refuse to change the oil every 15,000kms in my AU2...!!
I read this article on oils that says 10,000kms intervals should be treated as absoulte MAX.
With every 5000-7000kms being the best,
Here is a bit of the article:
"You thought you where doing the right thing. You remembered to change the oil and filter every 10,000 kms. Yet after your car ad covered 100,00 kms it started to blow smoke. Worse some expensive-sounding rattles became apparent.
In todays new car market, buyers expect to budget for the exact costs of ownership over a specified period. The car companies have responded with amoung other things, set maintenance schedules. And the pressures on them to make them even longer."
etc etc. anwyays its a long article but the gist of it says not to let oil changes go past 7,000kms, if you want your engine to last!
