How often do I need to change my oil in a 2012 GS ??  I changed it for the first time at 1000 miles.

looks like under normal operating conditions..

and oil change every 3000 to 5000 miles... or once a year.. using the specified synthetic engine oil and a matching filter...

if you are racing or other wise depressing the loud pedal more than average..  you might want to think about oil changes before each event.. and a reset of the oil life controls..

it does say that if the oil life controls are reset by accident.. change oil within 3000 to 5000 miles...

once can go farther on synthetic engine oil..  but is it worth the chance..

biggest issue i have ever worried about with oil changes .. .

getting dirt off the filter area into the new filter and circulated into the engine oil..  wiping out the bearings..... sends shivers down my spine just typing it..

I do it once a year, that's if you do low mileage.
