The oil changes on these aren't bad at all. The V6 is easier because it has the cartridge filter but I have a HEMI as well and have done ALL my own oil changes (3...4 after tomorrow) mainly because I don't trust the dealerships around here to not mess something up.
The filter isn't too bad to get at just a bit of a twist when reaching up underneath to get the old one off and the new one on. If you decide to do your own changes ensure your gasket comes off with the factory filter, these tend to be overtightened and sometime the gasket will stick to the block and then cause a leak if you don't notice and screw the new one over it. Other than that it is very straigh-forward.
Good luck with your new ride!
