Re: New Guy

Thanks for the warm welcome...so here's my first question- I was looking through the owners manual, and I don't see a recommended oil change frequency. It does talk about not going over 10,000 miles, but the only reference is to change the oil when the meter on the instrument cluster tells you to. Any guidance for me here- do you wait on the JGC to tell you or set the interval yourself? In other vehicles I've owned, I've always set the interval myself...

That's completely up to you and everyone has their own ritual.

There are two "schedules" in the manual...one for "normal" driving and one for "heavy duty" (taxi, heavy towing, etc) driving. Assuming you are in the "normal" category, you should change your oil based on 10K miles or when the EVIC oil life indicator says you need to, whichever comes first. Or sooner, if you like to buy oil.
