2012 Ford Explorer XLT: Oil Change Time Again

April 10, 2012

You may recall that we did the first oil change ourselves at around 3,000 miles. That one was to clear out any unwanted residue from the initial break in of the engine. From there on out we decided to rely on the Explorer's on-board computer to determine when it needed new oil.

So, here we are, roughly 9,000 miles later and the warning popped up last night. This time, we just dropped it off at the local Ford dealer to see how quickly and efficiently they would handle it. We'll let you know how it goes.
