I made and appt. to get mine changed at 5K miles. I picked the truck up and it hadn't been done. I can see the service dept. has a communication problem. Part of my deal was free oil changes for life. I'm starting to see how this works.

I have seen that happen before...one thing to do is put a permanent mark on the filter before you take it in so you can check to see if they even changed the filter. That would indeed make me question their ability.

I got close to 6000 kms (3728 miles) before my change oil light came on. The second light didn't come on until 15,000 kms (9320 miles) So since April I have only changed my oil twice.

When I commute with the truck it is about 80 kms (50 miles) per day mostly highway and some stop and go freeway traffic. We have also taken it on long trips with the travel trailer.

So, it does very little city driving and the computer does take that into account.

Well,

If your leasing it I would do what the manual says to do. If your keeping the vehicle I would do an oil change every 5000km. Mine also started to beep at me at 4000km. The second oil change I believe was after that but before 5000k. Just make sure they re-set your timer every time.
