How often do you change your oil?

Hyundai says every 7,500 miles but that seems extremely long. What do you guys do? Do you have a favorite brand?

7500 is SHORT nowdays it you use synthetic. Improved manufacturing/tolerances and synthetic oil improving lubrication and avoiding oil breakdown make short oil changes overkill. I am surprised at only 7400, most of my recent vehicles used computer translating to 10-12K. I tend to use Mobil 1 or Royal Purple, but most name brands are excellent (Castrol Synthetic, Valvoline etc). I avoid Quaker State, grew up as a mechanic and their old stuff was crap..

I change my oil at 10k using Mobil 1 and a filter rated for that interval or longer.

I used to only use Amsoil and I would change at 20k miles without any issues. Important to use a filter that can handle it though.

Just started using Shell Rotella Gas Truck formula in my F150. They have always produced an awesome diesel truck oil and fleet owners swear by it.

What is the size of the socket for the oil filter cartridge? 27mm?

I only leased the Palisade and get 3 years or 30,000miles of free oil changes, so let Hyundai handle it.
If I was going to keep the Palisade for 6+ years I might do my own, But not paying the extra for someone else to reap the benefits

Just changed it for the first time at 504 miles a few days ago, with Mobil1 0/30, and OEM filter, plus a GoldPlug magnetic drain plug. Wanted to wait 1K, but I'm in the middle of a long trip, so did it earlier. Will do it every 5K miles after that, like I do with all my vehicles, mostly due to many short distance trips. By the way, the oil filter is tiny on this vehicle, so I wouldn't go beyond the 7,500 Hyundai calls for.

Finally, found a drop of oil on the bolt shown with a blue arrow, and the other picture just like it shows there, but with no trace where it came from (they're not my pictures, I may add). And my oil was still clear, since it only had 504 miles. Found several more cases of bad crankshaft seals besides those 2, and I'm afraid that's exactly what's happening to mine :(. Didn't see evidence of the leak, but cleaned everything perfectly, including removing that bolt (no oil in there), so will check it again after my trip, to see if by any chance it was oil from somewhere else, but after several instances of bad seals, I really doubt it. Will report on what I find soon.
