Can I skip my car's servicing?

Asked by Andrew

Mazda recommends maintenance at 10,000 km intervals, but what impact on my 2013 Mazda 2 engine could be expected from a gap in maintenance over a 2-year 4-month period from 18,000 km to 36,000 km?

Skipping oil changes is the worst possible thing to do, the oil will get thick and sludgy and the risk is that it will block the galleries in the engine, and in the worst case it could cause the engine to fail.
