The standard for regular oil changes used to be every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever came first. However, now that vehicles are becoming more and more advanced, there is some disagreement among experts regarding how often oil changes are actually necessary. The best way to determine how often you should change your specific vehicle’s oil is to check out your owner’s manual, but the information may be tough to find. Our team at Matt Castrucci Honda is here to help in any way we can, so if you’re the proud owner of a 2017 Honda Pilot, keep reading! We’ve checked out the owner’s manual for you to find out just how often you should be changing your vehicle’s engine oil.
How often does the 2017 Honda Pilot need an oil change?
Honda recommends changing the oil in the 2017 Pilot every 7,500 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. That being said, if you are consistently driving in dusty conditions, are regularly driving extended periods at low speeds or driving in extremely hot or cold climates, you are going to want to change your oil more regularly to keep you engine in tip-top shape. If you have trouble remembering to change the oil in your vehicle on time, you’re in luck. The 2017 Pilot comes with Maintenance Minder™, which displays a message on the Pilot’s dashboard reminding the driver that maintenance is due.
