3,000-4,000 mile oil change interval
I bought my 2022 mirage G4 brand new June 1st, I've done 3 oil changes in 7,000 miles using quality oils like Pennzoil ultra platinum, Amsoil and Royal Purple. So far Royal purple has felt the best out of the 3, Not a fan of mobile 1 (which is what my dealer uses) It's not even in the top 3 additive package wise when analyzed by Blackstone labs compared to others. My mirage is noticeably louder on the top end and rougher idling with the mobile 1 in it, Especially after a few thousand miles on that oil. I feel like a max of 5k intervals should be recommended for this engine for highway use and 3k for city with a 3-quart capacity, 7,500 miles is asking for excessive wear imo. I can feel the engine behaving slightly different after the 3,000-4000 mile mark. I'm very in tune to my cars, even the smallest things get noticed. My goal is to basically have zero varnish build up in the life of the engine. Even quality oils will leave varnish behind after 5k intervals, Im going the don't even give the oil a chance to get dirty route, A clean engine is an efficient/happy engine. Also going to be doing full AAMCO transmission services every 15-20k including pan drop, fluid exchange, primary filter cleaning and secondary filter changes. Most would consider it over servicing, I don't believe in such things i consider it protecting an investment for the next 10+ years lol, I paid a lot for the 2022 mirage, $16,500 base and about 18k out the door with a fully extended bumper to bumper warranty. Im going to get my money and milage out of it lol.
