Default

i did my first at 3,000 miles, because the 2009 manual was written by a person that was not informed about lubricants
Then i changed over to synthetic & i still change motor oil at 5,000 miles, or close to it

I also buy the Mobile One at Walmart, the WIX oil filter i pick up at a auto parts store & i have the dealership do my changes

Someone mentioned that they didn't trust their dealership to use what they brought in
I think if you are thinking that same way
just scratch the filter with a scribe & you will know it is changed
