Here’s the latest reader Q – and my reply:
I bought a 2013 Corolla and just got an oil change. When I went, I was confused by the oil change choices because I had only ever gotten standard before. The guy had recommended I get the $50 change (I think it was a premium choice?). Anyhow, I ended up getting the next best thing which I guess was kind of a synthetic oil blend. I kind of wish I would have gotten the best change, but my car seems to be running fine.
What is your opinion on the synthetic oil blend? The man also told me it should last my car up to 10,000 miles! That sounded a bit wacky to me, but I suppose it could be true. (?) What do you think?
