Q: Is it necessary to do an oil change at 1000 miles?

asked by on

Hello. My 19.5 year old car became the victim of a terrible flood here in Louisiana in August. I have since purchased a new VW Jetta, and am in the process of breaking it in. The owner's manual, which I have actually read, states that the first oil change is not needed until 10,000 miles. My friends agree. However, there are many websites that recommend a change at 1,000 miles, mainly to get rid of oil that may be carrying tiny little metal shavings. So what is your opinion? And would this affect the warranty do you think? Thank you.

My car has 785 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
