If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Thank you. Depend on? My self never follow it. I normally change it every 5,000 miles with Mobil 1. But seen many pp are now followed maintenance minder. My 2018 civic is 3,200 miles and I was thinking to do a first oil change with Mobil 1 but not really sure now if I should wait for maintenance minder.

Not turbo, Civic LX.

Driving most of the time to the gym in the morning and sometime to the market around the house. It is my mom's car.

Non-turbo, IMO you're probably just fine with 5k oil changes unless your particular driving habits cause the maintenance minder notification to come on sooner than 5k.

Or one year, whatever comes first.

JMHO, YMMV

Thank you. I will do it as my other cars at 5,000 then.

I am planing to get rid of Odyssey at the end of next year and I was thinking to move oil change from 5,000 to 7,000 with this van.
