Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor™
Your vehicle has an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor that determines when you should change the engine oil based on how you use your vehicle. By using several important factors in its calculations, the monitor helps reduce the cost of owning your vehicle and reduces environmental waste at the same time.
This means you do not have to remember to change the oil on a mileage-based schedule. Your vehicle lets you know when an oil change is due by displaying a message in the information display.
The following table provides examples of vehicle use and its impact on oil change intervals. It is a guideline only. Actual oil change intervals depend on several factors and generally decrease with severity of use.

When to expect the message prompting you to change your oil  
Interval   Vehicle Use and Example  
7000–10000 mi (11,000–16,000 km)   Normal  
Normal commuting with highway driving.   No, or moderate, load or towing.   Flat to moderately hilly roads.   No extended idling.  
5000–7500 mi (8,000–12,000 km)   Severe  
Moderate to heavy load or towing.   Mountainous or off-road conditions.   Extended idling.   Extended hot or cold operation.   High engine speeds and loads, engine braking and hard cornering.  
3000–5000 mi (4,800–8,000 km)   Extreme  
Maximum load or towing.   Extreme hot or cold operation.  

Normal Maintenance Intervals

At every oil change interval as indicated by the information display 1  
Change the engine oil and filter. 2  
Rotate tires, inspect tire wear and measure the tread depth.  
Perform a multi-point inspection, recommended.  
Inspect the automatic transmission fluid level if your vehicle has a dipstick. Consult your dealer for requirements.

Inspect the half-shaft boots.  
Inspect the steering linkage, ball joints, suspension, tie-rod ends, driveshaft and U-joints. Lubricate any areas with grease fittings.  
Inspect the wheels and related components for abnormal noise, wear, looseness or drag.  

1 Do not exceed one year or 10000 mi (16,000 km) between service intervals.
2Reset the Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor after engine oil and filter changes.

Brake Fluid Maintenance3  
Every three Years   Change the brake fluid.4  

3 Perform this maintenance item every three years. Do not exceed the designated time for the interval.
4Brake fluid servicing requires special equipment available at your authorized dealer.

Other Maintenance Items 5  
Every 20000 mi (32,000 km)   Replace the cabin air filter.  
Every 30000 mi (48,000 km)   Replace the engine air filter.  
Every 100000 mi (160,000 km)   Replace the spark plugs.

5Perform these maintenance items within 3000 mi (4,800 km) of the last engine oil and filter change. Do not exceed the designated distance for the interval.
6After initial inspection, inspect every other oil change until replaced.
7Initial replacement at 10 years or 200000 mi (320,000 km), then every 5 years or 100000 mi (160,000 km).
Track Use Maintenance Intervals
Follow these maintenance intervals for when you use your vehicle on a track or in a high-speed event.
In addition to the recommendations below, we recommend following the procedures previously outlined in the Normal Maintenance Intervals section to help keep your vehicle running right, to identify potential issues, and to prevent major problems.

Interval   Vehicle Use and Example  
One track weekend or approximately four hours of track use   Change the engine oil and filter.  
Every 500 mi (800 km)   Change the rear axle fluid.8  

8Change the fluid every 500 mi (800 km) or when a message appears in the information display stating that the axle fluid is overtemperature.
