Hello guys!

I am the new owner of a 2016 Trax. This is my first time ever having a new car, I am excited! :D I am just wondering if you guys have any tips or ideas I should know? I am open to suggestions. At this time however, I dont have the car, as it's in the shop for a recall :crying: however, I will post pics when I get it back.

Put a few hundred miles on the car, then change the oil and filter to the synthetic 5/30 oil you prefer.

I got rid of my original oil at 150 miles I did the same thing on my new Encore and Miata.

Buy a quality national brand name synthetic, after the first change, oil changes every 3000 to 3500 will help your engine last.

The factory recommendations are too high, after all they want you to buy another new Trax

Thanks for the input, its appreciated! Also, what would you say is a "quality" brand for oil. In the past I usually stuck with Valvoline.
