Hello From Calgary
I have just logged my first month with my new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. I have about 1400 klm on the odometer. Any thoughts about when to replace the stock oil with Mobile 1 Synthetic for better performance in this cold climate. I have the 3.6 V6 engine.

First, welcome.
As for oil change, there are many opinions here so whatever you do will probably be right.
I used synthetic in my previous Jeep for a while but with the block heater in the winter there shouldn't be any problems with regular oil for start-up.

I changed the oil filter at 4,700 kms (2,930 miles), but am going to 8,000 kms for the first full oil change. That's what the dealer recommended and I see no problem with it.

PS - I my case the driving is 80 to 90% highway miles, so not as hard on the engine as city stop and go.

I just changed oil/filter on mine V6 at 1700 miles, with Mobile 1 synthetic. Works great! Always buying/using my own oil for any cars I am owner, either Mobil 1 syntehtic or Castrol Edge. Filter is a bit problem, so far only dealers having them in stock. No third party filters made for this engine yet.
