oil change inquiry.....

My wife and I own a 2013 Overland with the Hemi. It was purchased brand new in November and has not had the light come on for it's first oil change yet. It currently had 8,300 miles on it. Is this something we should be worried about? The manual says first oil change at 8,000 miles but then i read on the forums to let the jeep "tell me" when our oil is due to be changed....any help would be appreciated.....~Chris

Highly controversial, often discussed topic. Seriously doubt if many opinions have changed.

Some folks change out more frequently based on mileage and driving, some will wait till the indicator comes on.

I doubt if any real comparisons of engine life have been done, even if I am one of the early changers, given the engine costs more than somewhere over 150 oil changes using full blown synth.

Don't let all those dinosaurs die in vain.
