Re: Synthetic Oil and Your Warranty - Dealer Nonsense

I mean I'm used to going 10k per oil change without any issues on my bmw and the computer says 15k intervals.... But this one I'm not sure. I will definitely switch to full synthetic for my first change just don't know if 1k miles is enough of a break in to switch over to synthetic from the original oil.

I got my first oil change at 3000 miles. Then every 5000 miles. The first 4 oil changes were free at the dealership. So, after the first 4, I change the oil myself and use synthetic oil. Last I checked, Mobil 1 was not on Jeep's approved list so I used Castrol Edge. I get the oil filters from the dealership and save the receipts (for oil and filter). I have 7 year extended warranty on the Jeep and I don't want those guys screaming that I didn't take care of my Jeep well... in case something happens.

I too get the UOA done for all my cars.

Cheers,
