As for the 5k oil change, yes that is the case in our region. Every 5k oil & filter both get changed.
I have a warranty for 100,000km or 5 years. Service every 5k and 10k is not covered. I can "buy" a service contract that will save around 8000AED.

Otherwise, nothing is covered for free. I basically have to pay every time I go for service (every 5k and every 10k services). Scam.

You could plan out on how long you want to keep your vehicle and see if the service contract cost over that mileage/years of ownership is worth it OR buy your own oil/filter, etc and service it elsewhere each time.

Yeah true. But I need to find a garage that does that.

After that I didn't get it till about 10,000 km, and so on every 9 or 10k.

Does everyone here service their car for oil change every 5000km ?

Some peeps where talking about Oil Filters in another thread, but my Oil Filter is still stock since I only have 2500km yet, and the 5000km service will be my first. They're heavily affiliated with MOPAR, so I don't know if it's systems need changing every 5000km, and adapted the car's service to that fact ...
Hi, I just bought a 2014 jeep cherokee limited. My previous vehicle was a 2003 Grand Am and had 273,000 kms on it. Changed oil every 5,000 kms and never added extra oil and still ran like it did when it was new. My understanding is that every vehicle should have an oil change every 5,000 kms. I believe it makes for a longer life for your vehicle so do it!!
