I normally change my own oil, but this is my first vehicle under warranty. I've heard there is a risk of denied warranty work if you change your oil yourself, any truth to this?
No truth to that at all. Just keep good details, receipts for oil and filters and mileage.

I've been driving my 2011 3.5 for almost 6 years. Been a wicked truck. But would never go over 5K miles on an oil change.

They run hot with turbos and are known to have a lot of fuel blow by into the oil.

Never heard nothing much bad with the 2.7s other than bad factory heads and the oil pans leaking due to being plastic and having crap sealing surfaces.
