There is no magical potion or secret code when it comes to getting more mileage out of your Acura. It all boils down to regular maintenance and routine visits to the service team at Acura of Columbus. Perhaps most importantly, when it comes to the upkeep of your Acura is your basic oil change. But just because it's important to your Acura's health doesn't mean you need to overdo it. So, just how frequently should you visit us for an oil change? Well, like anything else, there is no one right answer.

How frequently you schedule your oil changes kind of depends on how you drive. The answer used to be, like clockwork, every three months or 3,000 miles. But engines perform differently now. Now, it can be anywhere from 5,000-to-10,000 miles. If you typically spend your days wandering around Columbus, GA, you can get more mileage in between oil changes. Your engine doesn't work so hard to keep everything flowing the way it should. If you play your cards right, you could probably manage just two oil changes in a year.

If you use your 2021 Acura MDX to tow your boat to your local dock or head to the hills for weekend getaways, you put more strain on your engine. This will equate to more frequent visits for oil changes. You can plan for about three oil changes in a year if you put some heavy miles on your Acura.

But what about those in-between times? Perhaps you have just taken a long road trip or went off-roading for a weekend. One way to make sure your oil is good to go for a few more miles is by checking it yourself once a month. You will want to make sure it hasn't changed colors or find any leaks under your car. If you see these signs, then it is time to hop online and schedule your next visit to the Acura of Columbus service center. They will take care of your Acura, so you can enjoy even more miles.
