Fun fact: 80 percent of all the Toyotas sold more than 20 years ago remain driving on the road. That’s a fairly impressive statistic from the manufacturer. Even still, having a mechanic repair or service your vehicle on occasion helps to keep it in working condition. Let’s say you bought the Toyota Corolla back in 1998. Toyota has remained a dependable car with one of the best track records in the automotive industry. That means that in all likelihood, your car will still be working today.

How Often Should You Have Your Oil Changed?
Let’s say you bought the Toyota Camry from 1995. Regular oil changes are one of the best ways to keep your car in good condition. The owner’s manual recommends you get an oil change every 10,000, but in extreme conditions, it’s acceptable to get an oil change every 5,000 miles. Under even more extreme circumstances, there is nothing wrong with getting an oil change at 3,000 miles, and this keeps your car running on the road. What exactly are severe weather conditions? Well, driving in stop-and-go traffic, driving at speeds lower than 50 miles per hour for a long distance and driving on roads that have dust, mud, salt or sand spread over the surface all classify as more extreme weather conditions.
