First oil change

Greetings all, does anyone know at what mileage you should do your first oil change on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the V6 Penstar? The suggested change interval is at 8000 miles or when the EVIC tells you too. I have read on forums that some have done there first oil change much earlier. Will changing the oil earlier be beneficial for the engine?

Re: First oil change

I also have a 2012 and am planning waiting until the EVIC tells me it's time to change the oil. I highly doubt that they recommend something harmful to the vehicle. I also have a 2007 Pilot that my wife drives. It has a Maintenance Minder that tells me when to perform certain services. The oil change intervals work out to be 7,000+ including the first oil change. After 133,000 miles it still does not use any oil.
