    5-6K or once a year, whichever comes first, is fine. I'm going to do my first oil change well before that, though, just because it is the factory fill. This is my first new car where I can do that.

    I can see it fine. 6'. The seat in any car I drive is always all the back and all the way down (or almost all the way down) to provide the most protection against intrusion.
