This is NOT chrysler suggesting synthetic in my opinion, just ridiculous website management.

You're gonna get as many opinions on this subject as you do comments.
If it were mine, I'd do the first oil change between 500-1000 miles to get rid of any fine metal than may have been produced by the initial scrubbing-in of the rings, then continue with dino oil for the first 10,000 miles, going by whatever your normal interval would be. Call me old-school if you want, but I believe in giving it some time & miles for the rings to get completely seated before making the switch, if you're gonna run synthetic.

|The_Chief||I would only do an oil change at 800 miles if the owner's manual said to do so. Don't waste your time and money.|

I did my 1st oil change at 1,200 miles; was going to do it at 1K, but life got in the way. Very easy to do: 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport: DIY Oil Change
Got some Pennzoil 5W20 at Sam's Club for about $3/quart, and some WIX 57526 filters from these guys: https://www.filter1.com. So, just a little over $20 for the job. I plan on doing it every 3K-5K miles, but may change to synthetic in the future.

|wat3rdog||I'm at almost 800 too. I will probably change mine around 1500 in order to go synthetic and never look back.|

|Jen1121||I guess that's one way of looking at it. I have a warranty too but I guess I just want to do things right the first way. I dont want to go through the hassle.|

|The_Chief||I follow the owner's manual... If it breaks, I have a warranty.... Throw it in the gutter...go buy another.|

When should I get 2013's first oil change?
I'm at about 800 miles and I was told to get an oil change at 1,000 miles. Is that true? I want to make sure I do everything right these first few months so my Jeep will last for 10+ years. Any other feedback would be greatly appreciated.
