    I use to do the 500 mile oil change and then go 6k in between with synthetic. The current Jeep SRT and Durango I said screw it and went straight to 6k. All I can say is.... they're still running at 16k and 8k miles respectively LOL!!

    I will tomorrow. Been a long day and just about to hit the sheets now that the little ones are asleep. Really like it, kinda thinking I might like it over the Challenger (have driven them many times at track).

    i only put 2,000 miles a year on my cars......so i do a 500-1000 mile oil change for the first one and then i do 1 oil change a year before i put it away in storage.....

    HC oil change is crazy expensive

    look into the Viper oil filter if you dont mind paying a few bucks extra for finer filtering

    Thought I saw a B5 blue, brass monkey, Charger Hellcat getting on 495 near Andrews AFB a few days ago. I was 3 cars back in my Hellcat on Forestville Rd but once on 495 they disappeared into the crowd of congestion.

    And 4500-5000 miles. Noticing that my mileage and oil life are kinda running side by side.

    I'll do the first around 500 miles. Then probably like Huggy. I have free oil changes for 48 months, as many as I want. So I will use them for sure.

    I typically go 5k between oil changes, however on a new motor breaking in I do the first few early.. 500 to 1000 miles first oil change then 2nd oil change about another 2500-3000 more miles.

    I did the first at 1,700 and will do the rest at 4,500-4,800 max. They are expensive and it's my daily driver so I need to get my money's worth out of the oil. Always had good success with synthetic at 5,000 ran it in my Caddy when it first came out. Only part of that car that was good was the engine was okay. Editing my comment...I was incorrect, I went to 2,300 miles without any problems. My dealer said 5k, but I didn't want to wait that long in first one.

    3,000 to 5,000 miles depends on how hard you drive it plus look at the oil life indicator and I would not recommend going by the oil life if it is over 5,000. My Challenger SRT8 comes on for oil change around 3,000 miles but it is all short trips and hard miles. Changing the engine oil is cheap insurance.
