I've got the 2010 with the older transmission. Oil changes are recommended every 2500 miles, I wish I had the 2011 trans. I usually go more like 3000-3500 on full synthetic with no issues though. My ride is going to be about 2500 miles round trip (SLC to Northern CA, down the coast and back). I'll probably rack up a thousand miles before I leave also.
