Off topic I know, but I'm curious as to why change the oil every 5000km if the recommended interval for warranty in the Owners Manual says 10000km+ ??
( I think it's up to 12,000km or something )
5000km oil changes are pretty old school, used to follow that schedule myself, but anymore, you're wasting cash, and oil.
I'll give you the point of using synthetic, good idea, but I've changed my ways with the dino oil, hit a compromise and will get it changed anywhere between 8500 and 10000.
Is there something about the Ecoboost that merits a changeout every 5000 km ?
PS - Extended Warranties are a cash cow for whoever is selling them, pure profit.
