In high horse power cars yes. But unless you're OCD save the money. Jeep charges a fortune for a synthetic oil change $110 before coupons. I am 5000 mile oil change OCD. Lol

I'll change my own oil for that price, LOL! I haven't looked at the differences with this Jeep compared to my other cars, but it shouldn't be too bad. I'm going to use AMS oil in mine I think.

Im on my second Reny, my first one was a 2015 Limited, and there was just the service light as described. On my current Reny, 2016 TH, there is an actual oil change countdown screen as one of the information displays on the instrument panel.

Is this a new feature, or a TH feature? I cant recall exactly, but I think its on pace for me to get an oil change at or around 9000ish miles?..or maybe its not even an oil change screen, lol? What am I looking at here, it just says service? I suppose I can read the manual, but who does that nowadays?

FYI, I sold the first one to a family member in college and upgraded to the TH, in case any one was wondering.

Yes the service screen is an estimated time of when your next oil change will be due, it gives you days and miles.

The dealer told me I get 4 free oil changes through Jeep and that they expire 24 months from the purchase date. Why does high horsepower engines matter? I feel like the 1.4L engine is under more stress than a Corvette or Camaro engine, as those are 6.2L engines that produce about 73 horsepower per liter, and the Renegade produces about 114 horsepower per liter...

Oil Change ???'s

Hey Everyone,

I did my first at 1k then 15k after that point. I use Amsoil Signature Series of course. My filter is full synthetic media good for 15k also, its not paper filament.

I have the trans service going to Amsoil at 10k miles and good for 50k after that.

My next project is By-Pass filter and Hitch!

2016 TH has a oil change indicator and a 10k service maintenance count down. They are 2 different things.
