I bought my 2009 used (35000km's/18500miles) the first thing I did was drop oil and put in full synthetic oil and a fram filter. ( I have always only used Fram in every vehicle I have ever owned). I change oil every 10000k/6000 miles and still runs awesome. Starts real nice especially when its -60 degees celcius in winter.

I just did my first Oil change.. light came on at 4500 but i pushed it to 5000k due to xmas season and all the running around.. I paid 59.00 cnd at a 10 min oil change place.. and will go tot he dealer right after xmas when i have more time.. want to talk to them about going full synthetic and how that works on warranty. Our biggest issues up here in Canada is they look for any reason to void the warranty on our trucks and Jeeps.
Just did a oil change myself and was looking here to see how to reset the light which I found, thx guys..... FYI The Quaker state 5/20 and a Fram filter bought here in the Niagara area was $55.98 CAD = $46.00 USD, I'd be better off letting someone else change it or better yet I should plan my trips to the in laws cottage in PA around my oil changes lol. Scored a full set of Cooper Zeons last time I was there for $800 installed, would have cost me close to $1400 here. My name says gottobecdn but sometimes I wish it was gottobeamerican
