    I changed Dante's oil at 600 miles, then again at 1100 miles. As they said above ^^^^^ can't hurt.

    I did mine as well. I wonder if the auto trans fluid should be changed as well? Anyone know of a "break in" fluid change for the automatic?

    Look at your oil life monitor or less than 6000. I did mine at 20% life and it was a little over 5,000. Some people here like to change it at 500, 1000, or whatever for peace of mind. Personally, it is my opinion that you do not need to change it that soon, but if it makes you feel better and you don't mind spending the money, then go for it.

    I am going against everyone else here. I will change mine at 3k.

    The car has a warranty....should any problems arise from waiting until 3k to change the oil they would show up well before the car is out of warranty.

    I plan on changing at 500 miles (after initial break in period). I'll probably go every 4k miles like I do with my Jeep SRT8.
