Should I change the oil in my car even though it has only been driven about 600 miles since the last change. Problem is,the last oil change was about a year ago.
The oil still looks almost new.What to do?:confused:

In that case I'd consider the annual oil change a preventative measure, unless you use an oil analysis program. Reason, combustion products that make it past the rings and into the crankcase can become corrosives over time. Without at least once a month running of the engine, water can also develop in the oil due to condensation, especially in coastal areas like yours. This water will mix with the combustion products over time and cause the corrosive to develop. Alternately drive your Saab, mon and make this a moot point. :lol:
