2020 kia optima

2019 represents a golden age in midsize family sedans. While buyers in Kansas and Missouri often plump for the current trend — crossovers — sedans are comfortable, full of tech, stylish, and economical to run.

Should I Change My Oil if I Don't Drive That Often?

You may think that if you just don't drive that many miles each month, you can safely put off getting an oil change until your mileage matches the manufacturer's recommendation. While you'd undoubtedly save money in the short term with this method, it actually may cost you much more in the long run.

The introduction of synthetic oil has allowed drivers to delay oil changes much longer than previously possible. While some cars can go 7,000 or even 10,000 miles between changes, you'll also notice there's a suggested time frame as well.
