    I guess that depends on how much you drive it

    On my Gen III first oil change, they told me 2000 miles, I did 3200 miles in the first 7 days. I needed an oil change. Me, I would probably keep an eye on the fluid levels and wait till I was closer to 2000, however, there's no such thing as changing too soon

    You should change the oil every four to six months, even if you dont
    drive it. Acids and humidity will build up in oil that sits for too long -
    you need to start the car up occasionally and let the motor get hot
    enough to boil any water vaper inside the block.

    I personally change the oil every 4000 miles or 3 months, whichever
    comes first - I use Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil and a Mopar Viper Filter, but
    any high quality synthetic will work. I still recommend the Viper Filter,
    but if you cannot find one the Mobil1 Oil Filter is an acceptable option.
