Find out if your dip stick is ready correctly. I have a 2014 GC Summit with the 5.7 and I changed the oil and put in the recommneded 7qts. I checked the dip stick and it read 1 qt. low. I waited a couple of hours and even wiaed until the next morning and still had the same reading. I have a thread gong regarding the dip stick. if you get a chnce check your oil and let me know where its registering, then call the dealer just for the heck of it to se how much oil they actually put in.

Re: Change oil or wait for "change oil" message

I've also been questioning this. Manual says 8000, dealer says 3000 but my GC has the oil change indictor to inform me to change it, seems confusing. Here's a good link to some maintenance schedules,

Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Maintenance information and schedules

The owner's manual gives the Maximum intervals and the dealer seems to give the minimum seeing as they want you back to see them more often. I will be changing the oil when my jeep tells me too.

So far on my third oil change my Jeep has asked for changes at 3500, 7500 and 10750.

When it comes down to it go with your personal preference, just make sure to keep an eye on your levels.
