New Owner
 
Just bought a 2018 Renegade Sport with a 2.4L yesterday got a great deal sticker listed at $24,500 with options,with my trade in an added rebates which was a surprise by the way, I got it for $18,200 it had 21 miles on it. Haven't had it long enough to say I'm overjoyed by it but I like it so far. But dealer said it comes from factory with 0-W20 conv. Oil an to bring it in at 3000 miles for first change an 5000 after that does that sound right? I've only run synthetic in the car I traded an got 203,000 miles on it b4 it had to go. Should I stick with conv.oil or have them change it to synthetic for the Xtra money? Any thoughts?

The periods recommended from the dealer seem reasonable and are what I use. Not sure about using synthetic instead of conventional oil but at these intervals the conventional oil should be OK. Do keep an eye on the oil levels for the first few 1000 miles as some 2.4L MultiAir vehicles have been reported to have excessive engine oil consumption issues.
