Q Back in the 1980s I read in an automotive magazine that to help ensure longevity for your new car, you should change all the driveline fluids early, to remove all the metal shavings. I have had the dealer change the engine oil, differential oil and transmission oil on my last three new vehicles at 1,500 miles. Although, when I bought my last new vehicle in 2003, the dealer really gave me a difficult time, saying that there are no longer break-in fluids.
