Most automobiles do not need their oil changed every 3000 miles. However, oil change shops try to get people to think this is necessary in order to boost sales. What do you think?

I agree, 3K miles is too soon for today's automobiles and oil. An older vehicle, or one that is used harder than typical might be different, though.
