2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Third Round of Oil
July 08, 2014
As expected, our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is thirsty for another round of oil now that it has passed the 22,000-mile mark. It called for its first change around 7,500 miles and another after 15,000 miles so it looks like it's on a pretty regular schedule even though it's a performance-based indicator.
I much prefer this type of setup to the wasteful tradition of simply changing out the oil because of a predetermined mileage interval. If you have the technology to determine the oil quality, might as well use it.
We don't expect anything more than a routine swap this time around, but we'll report any other maintenance items that were necessary after we take it in for service.
