Ask Smithy Xtra Servicing a Hyundai i30

Asked by Elsie and Colin

Going by my new Hyundai i30?s service book there is no need to change oil and oil filter until 15,000 km or 12 months. I thought it should be changed at the first service at 1000 km. What do you think?

Carmakers are stretching oil change intervals all the time, mostly to reduce the cost of servicing of their cars, and the quality today’s oils allow them to do it. But I too would prefer to change oils more frequently, and in particular change the oil at the first service. That way you clean out any rubbish or grit that is left in the engine from the production process. It’s good insurance.
