The best way to destruct an indestructible car is by ignoring the simple things, such as oil changes. And according to Rose, oil changes are essential. "Every 3750 miles, it's time for an oil change," said Rose. "It may not look like your oil needs to be changed, but there's a build up in the oil of acids, formed when the car is started and driven hard. Your oil may look okay, it's still time to change it."

3750 comes from car makers 15,000, 30,000, 45,000 mile etc schedule. Every 4th oil change (or 2nd if you go 7500 miles) is a maintenance interval. Just easier to do everything at once.
