Corolla (conventional): every 6 months or 5,000 km (whichever comes first)

Subaru (synthetic): every 6 months or 10,000 km (whichever comes first)

$30 for oil/filter or seize the engine and replace it for 3-4k.... Decisions decisions!

Usually around 15,000 kms. When ever the computer says its time, or just before it does.
