Currently have 5300 miles on 2011 5.0 Mustang. Gauge cluster says 70% oil life left. Should I change every 5000 miles anyway or wait till the gauge says to change it? WHat do you guys do? thanks
I would just as a matter of course. You don't know what the car has been put through, especially if it's been test driven a lot and oil changes are relatively cheap. You've got nothing to lose by doing it now, IMO.I've got a question along the same lines, so I didn't want to start a new thread.
I'm waiting on a transfer of a 2011 GT/CS from another dealer. The car is "used" with 915 miles on it. Someone owned it for 2 months from April to June 2011, then traded it in for something clearly not as fun.
So, given that it has been sitting around for awhile (and with a build date of Nov. 2010, so the oil has been sitting even longer) would I be wise to change the oil immediately or should I let it hang out until 5000? Thanks guys.
