When do YOU change the oil on your 2013 Ram?
 
Another Poll! This time Lets see what the consensus is on changing oil. Do you have a routine? Certain mileage? Certain timeframe? Or do you just go by the oil life indicator on the truck? Choose the answer that most closely matches your oil change interval! Feel free to describe details in a post if you choose "I use another way..."

Every 5k on the odometer… only because the math is easy and I change it myself….. seriously…. it seems dumb at low milage because I can do the math at any interval but when I get in the 80-120k I always used to forget so I switched to easy math.

I did the first change around 6500 miles. Switched to full synthetic, and will be doing 8-10k intervals from now on.

Every 5000 since that's what the dealership does free for life!

whaaaat.....how did you manage that deal

I change once every six months. On my first oil change, the life indicator was at 39% and the odo around 7,300 miles. The reason is, I have the Chrysler four oil change contract which is good for four oil changes with in two years. Therefore, once every six months unless the oil life says different.

I'd like to say it was my great negotiating skills but it's just something they do with all the cars they sell at this dealership group.
