First oil change indicator mileage.

I know myself as well as others start getting a bit paranoid waiting for the vehicle to indicate the first oil change is needed.

Just wondering what mileage you got yours at. Mine finally went off at 6305.

I'm at about the same mileage but didn't yet see any oil change indication. I already changed my oil a couple thousand miles ago but didn't attempt to reset the indicator.

Vehicles:
2015 Renegade Trailhawk - Silver (Glacier Metallic)
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
2014 H-D Road King
2009 Dodge Challenger R/T (traded)

I had my changed at 5000, no service indicator light yet. My plan is to do it every 5000 miles.

twigaman,

I have the 1.4L Turbo with the 6 Speed manual. In all my other vehicles, I have always done the every 5,000 miles. I talked to the service guy and using the full synthetic you are more then safe going longer. I understand many vehicles now are using the oil life sensor and it is more accurate now then previously. The warranty book says to use the sensor but not to exceed one year or 10,000 miles.

As part of my deal when buying the car I had the dealership throw in two free years of oil changes. We will see how that works out when I go for my first one.

I had the first service done at 6000 miles and plan to keep that schedule. Also, I have had numerous tire dealers over the years say 6000 is a good mileage to rotate the tires so I will get both done on the same schedule. I did not receive the change indicator warning.

dgr401,

I agree it is ideal to rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.

When you go into your instrument cluster and look at the miles to next oil change, what is it telling you ? I have not had mine done yet as I am only at 2,000 miles. It says about 6,500 more miles to my next oil change. Based on driving conditions, I believe that number will change at a different rate, as I have seen on other vehicles.

I don't recall ever seeing the miles left before next oil change displayed on the instrument cluster. I will have to check tonite when we go out. I know there are different displays depending on the Renegade model. Mine is a Latitude. I will check.

dgr401,

I have the 2016 Latitude. It is in the instrument cluster on the third or fourth screen scrolling up or down. I think by default it shows tire pressure or engine temp. Once you get to that screen you have to scroll right to the last screen which should be the oil sensor. Let me know what you find out.

I just went out and checked, my Latitude does not display the oil life. Mine is a 2015, maybe it is a new screen for 2016. Anyone else with a 2015 have the oil life screen?

The screens that display on my 2015 Latitude are tire pressure, coolant temp, transmission temp, oil temp and battery voltage.
