I'm at 1008 miles today. The day I bought this car, the salesman told me my first oil change is free. "great!", I said. "When should I bring it in?" At 1000 miles, he said. Ok, cool. I figured that's a break-in oil change. I've never bought a new car before. I took it in today and the service people laughed and said to bring it back at 5000 miles. said they'd never heard of any 1000-mile oil change before. I asked how often after that and he told be every 3000 miles. After checking the owners manual I see the first oil change is listed at 7500 miles! and every 7500 miles after that. My question now is: "Is 7500 when I chould change it? or 5000 just to be safe?"
