Newer vehicles need oil changes so infrequently that I don't mind paying the dealer to do the work - plus for the extended warranty it helps for record keeping to have the dealer do the service. The Pacifica tells you when it is time to do an oil change, and from there the dealer will perform the required maintenance checks as outlined in the owners manual based on age/mileage. The dealer will be more than happy to tell you if any maintenance work is required based on the results of their checks :wink2:

Chrysler makes it pretty easy by putting the maintenance schedule on only two pages of the owner's manual (the following for 2018 Pacifica):

So, whenever the odometer turns over another 10k miles or the calendar turns over another year since in-service date, check the schedule to see what should be done.

The manual has additional guidance regarding oil changes:
Change Engine Oil
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16,000 km), 12 months or 350 hours of engine run time, whichever comes first.
The 350 hours of engine run or idle time is generally only a concern for fleet customers.
Gasoline Engine Oil Selection
For best performance and maximum protection under all types of operating conditions, the manufacturer only recommends engine oils that are API Certified and meet the requirements of FCA Material Standard MS-6395.
Engine Oil Filter
The engine oil filter should be replaced with a new filter at every engine oil change.
