    Yup. but the service center in CASA tells otherwise... been there, done that. That's why in choosing cars, I always look on the PMS schedule/cost as one of my top priority.
    Toyota, Mitsubishi, Suzuki,Subaru and majority of Chinese brands still follows the 5k/3months PMS interval.
    Honda, Nissan, Chevy and Ford follows the 10k/6months.
    VW follows 15k/1year.

    The discounts alone offset this and the fuel costs.

    from mitsu website:

    LIGHT PMS 5, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85, 95x 1,000 km. or every 3 months
    ridiculous PM schedule

    i just opened up my 15yo engine which had 10k/6mo oil change schedule. super clean, and my dipstick oil level doesn't change at all. i think a yearly oil change is "sufficient" for normal driving i.e. non-severe driving

    3months is not mandatory.

    every 5k.. that's like 6months for the civic.

    Nope! Thatís mandatory if you want your warranty. Nakastipulate na nga sa booklet di pa rin mandatory?

    well marami pa rin fans ng 5k/3mo schedule kahit dito sa tsikot. you'll be surprised

    so if you're a business you'd be stupid not to take advantage of willing victims LOL

    yep that's why i really avoid buying those brands you mentioned yung suzuki btw, 4mo interval, a little less evil LOL

    kulang kasi tayo sa consumer education. people would rather believe what i like to call "oral traditions" when it's clearly written in the manual that OCI is 10k/6mo and doesn't even specify fully-synthetic
