Maintenance Schedule For Very Low Miles Driven
I have an '01 Honda Civic LX. I only drive about 200 miles per month to work and back and occasionally out to dinner. I realize since this is all local driving, I should probably go by the severe driving maintenance schedule. However, about once a month the car does get on the freeway and driven about 30 miles at higher speeds. If I have oil changes done every 3 months, that means at approximately every 600 miles. It will take me three years to get to the 7500 mile mark on the odometer. Under these conditions, what would be the recommended maintenance schedule for oil changes and other services? It sounds like an oil change every 600 miles is too often.
