I still have 45% life left at about 3800 miles. I am leaning towards either Mobil1 of Pennzoil.

Is the 2.4 as easy to change the oil on as the 2.0? I imagine it wiould be the same block/filter location. I changed the oil on my Mom's SXT 2.0 and it was a BREEZE to change the oil :)

I did my first change at the dealer because it was free. Not sure what they used but it's normally $80 for a Dart change.

Going forward I will be using Amsoil Signature Series once a year with a new filter twice a year. Filter will be K&N, Purolator PureOne, Bosch Premium, or WIX depending on what I can find. Should cost around $80 a year.

Supposed to be roughly every 8k-10k (but at least once a year) or when the car tells you it's time.

Yes, in my 14 GT I can pull up one screen in the TFT that shows the % oil life remaining. I am at about 35% at 4500 miles. Mostly city type driving and this cold winter has probably influenced this. I figure I will change the oil in 4 to 6 weeks.

Mine is at 63% at 3 months and 1800 miles.
The dealer sent me an e-mail saying it's time for an oil change.
I got the BIG owners manual and it says to go buy the monitor, I do not want to void the warranty by going over the mileage.
I've been reading that an oil change at the dealer is about $63, is that right?
