The Honda dealer at which I bought my Accord(South Carolina) instructed me to change my oil every 7500 miles. I am just curious if anyone else has heard this? I did the frist change at 7500 but the Honda dealership here(Panama City, FL) put a sticker for 3k later. So how often do you guys change yours? Also, are you running synthetic or regular oil? Thanks for the advice.

i do it every 5000. if they put a sticker for 3000, they just want your money. the manual says 3750 for "severe" conditions and 7500 for "normal" conditions on the V6's.

I do it every 5000 miles, I have synthetic oil. I don't realy have to change it that often, I choose to. Just check the color when theoil is warm, if it's dark change it. It's because our oil supply is 5 quarts, my 04 Dodge Ram (hemi) has 7 quarts and the oil doesn't need to be changed as often.

Wow someone changes their oil 2000miles. Thats like a waste imo. I do my oil change every 4k-5k using mobil 1 synthetic 5w20. I used to use mobil 1 synthetic 5w30 but now that 5w20 is out i use that instead.
