Bought a 2016 Hyuandai Sonata from dealer,19000 miles on car, in January, in Florida
I drove car 1000 miles.
Going north to summer home and will leave car.
Will leave car in Florida and disconnect battery,and put fuel stabilizer in gas tank,for about 4 months.
With my previous old car, I got an oil change before leaving for north.

The difference this time is newer dealer serviced car and only 4 months(car outside in Florida while we are in north.

Should I get an oil change before we leave, when we come back or at 5000 miles?
I have heard that once a year suggested even though you drive only 1000 miles,to get it clean and to check car.
