Conventional wisdom says to get your first oil change in the first 1000-1500 miles to get rid of the break-in shavings. It's always a safe bet to change your oil, it's never going to hurt the car. Maybe your wallet, but not the car. I changed mine for the first time at 1500 and plan on every 3500-4000 after that. The manual says 5000, but call me old-fashioned, I believe in changing it around 3000, so I'll split the difference with Ford.
1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.
It takes a real man to wear a kilt.
