There are tons of oil threads.

Parks Ford in Wesley Chapel pretty much always has a coupon online for oil changes. I go there for every change in my Fusion and F150. I think I paid under $20 for oil change and tire rotation last time.
Wow... thought I was getting a good deal with 45 bucks for that on my 2011 5.0 f150....

I like to look at Bob is the Oil Guy for oil and filter testing but am partial to Amsoil signature series and their absolute Effeciency filter for once a year or 25000 mile drain intervals

Not going to risk any warranty issue later on by doing it myself (yuk) or using Jiffy Lube.

The dealer I bought it from said I can go 7500 miles between changes but I won't do that.
You can not be denied warranty service for changing your own oil or for using Jiffy Lube or for going to a Chevy dealer for your Ford as long as you are using manufacturer approved products (API service rating, viscosity, etc). 5k miles is about the max I would run on oil - oil changes are cheap. Both of my daily drivers are 150k+ miles and oil galleys are still spotless and freee of carbon and sludge. I am not a fan of oil life meters. They are based on calculations. I make enough money that the possibility of spending a bit extra for oil changes doesn't bother me. Oil can't be TOO clean.
