How often should the 2017 Buick Encore’s oil be changed?
The 2017 Buick Encore comes equipped with an advanced piece of technology designed to make the lives of Encore owners easier. The Oil Life System calculates oil deterioration and informs the driver when an oil change is required, but the driver is still responsible for keeping an eye on how long it’s been since the vehicle’s last oil change. If the vehicle isn’t driven often or hasn’t reached the necessary mileage for the system to alert the driver an oil change is needed, an oil change may still be required. The oil needs to be changed at an interval of 7,500 miles or six months, regardless of whether the system alerts the driver or not.
