    Default What is the recommended 1st oil change for 09 city

    What is the ideal first oil change interval in the new city. Mine has accumulated 795 km and is still in its break in period. The manual recommends first oil change at 5000kms. Is there any harm in changing the oil earlier than the recommended interval?

    The oil change is usually done at 4000 or 5000 kms, now there is no harm in doing it earlier but at 800 kms its just a waste of money...

    The manual says 5000 kms. Was just curious to know if it was alright to change it a bit early. I'm cool now, will change it according to the chart provided in the manual. Thanks for the help guys. Always appreciate it.
