|lowflyn||Meh. I don't keep cars for resell value. Won't be worth anything when I get rid of it. Just picked up the deal of the week from autozone for my car. Rolled over 85k yesterday so time for another. It took 16k miles for the oil change notice to pop up last time. I don't trust it.|

For what it's worth, and I don't care what you do, but every oil change and every service done at the dealer is logged so that potential future owners can see all the service records via Carfax or similar website.
As far as which oil, I am very satisfied with going about 5k on the blend. With the low cost of The Works and frequent rebates, plus the vehicle history record keeping of service, plus getting the sneakers rotated for best tire mileage, it's not worth my time to do it myself. That's time better spent on the river!

The Factory Fill of Syn Blend is adequate for all normal use.
But don't spoil the Fun of all the long discussions like this one on what might be "best".

|rebelx||Are we all cool using the syn blend from Ford for their oil changes or do we pay the extra for synthetic?|

There was a nipple underneath the cup, normally covered with a rubber cap. When you changed the oil, a 1 liter pop bottle fit nicely in there, and the 1/3 cup of hot oil drained into the pop bottle.
Then a quick wipe of the cup, new filter on, and ready to go. It was probably the easiest oil change I had ever done.

Up to 10k/1 year, the oil life monitor will tell you when.
Many pick a shorter interval for preference/convenience, this is one thread of many on Oil that has multiple opinions expressed on that subject.
Grab a manual for that new car, it's THICK with information on the MkIII.
