well i guess i see your point. I know Synthetic oil is durable but 15k is just way too much.. and thats coming from all the mechanics i know. My dad was a mechanic for 25 years and i sure dont follow the recommended oil change at 15k. Since day one i have been doing my oil change takes 30 minutes and cost 130 every 15k half is dealer and half i pay and DIY.
If you are thinking of keeping the car i highly suggest to change both...
