How often does the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport need an oil change?

Buying a Mitsubishi vehicle is not just a purchase, it’s also an investment. With the proper care, it can be a great investment that will provide reliable transportation for years or deliver great resale value when you decide to upgrade to a newer model. However, neglecting to take care of your vehicle can lead to a very different fate where you need frequent repairs and the resale value drops well below market value.

Of course, one of the things you need to do to take care of your vehicle is give it regular oil changes. While there is much more to caring for your Mitsubishi than consistent oil changes, they are a good milestone for your to bring your vehicle into the dealership, where our expert team of technicians can provide you other recommended services based on Mitsubishi’s preferred maintenance schedule.

Before we dive into frequency, please note that Mitsubishi Motors Genuine 0W-20 Synthetic Engine Oil is recommended for best fuel-economy returns and performance in cold weather. At Shortline Mitsubishi, we’ll make sure you have the right oil, but if you take it to an independent shop, make sure they are using the proper oil for your vehicle.

Thanks to that synthetic oil, you can forget about that 3,000-mile/3-month oil change schedule that you may have been taught.

According to Mitsubishi’s recommendations for newer vehicles, you should get your oil changed approximately every 7,500 miles or 6 months. However, it’s important you take your driving conditions into account. If you live in extreme climates or you do a lot of towing or city driving, you may want to increase that frequency. Check your owners manual and discuss a schedule with Mitsubishi-certified technicians to be sure.
