    Owner's manual or warranty guide will instruct users to have their PMS at a recommended mileage or a fixed period, whichever comes first. Some people have two or more vehicles where one gets more mileage and use compared to the others. The less used car will reach 6 months before even hitting the target mileage.

    I understand the need to have a general check-up for the vehicle every six months but do I really need to change oil as well, especially when I'm using fully synthetics and heavy duty oil filters (i.e. baldwin, fleetguard, donaldson, etc.)?

    It seems to me the advancements in oil technology, like making it last for 10k km to 20k km (e.g. Mobil delvac 1) is defeated by the recommended oil change "period".

    i follow the 5000K policy, and not the 6 mo. policy.
    it's cheaper.

    some manufacturers call for 7.5k to 15k kms or 6 months for oil change intervals.

    Trailblazer requires every 10,000 kms, except the first which came at 5,000 kms after delivery.

    5000 kms for me. It takes me more or less one year to reach 5000 kms.

    Less than 3,000 km per year lang ang mileage ko for gas-fed car. I change oil every 12 months using Semi- or Fully Synthetic oil man, does not matter.

    Eh ano ba talaga? will they drop your warranty if hindi mo sundin?

    i have a new car at ang sabi ni honda 10k KMs or 6 months which ever comes first.

    twice a year PMS only! sabi ng honda

    malabo ako maka 10k KMS by june. Ang ending ipasok ko pa din dahil 6 months na.

    if i follow by mileage will they take it against me if i will claim for warranty?

Do we really have to change oil every 6 months for low mileage cars?
