2016 Chrysler 300 S bluetooth and maintenance questions

on this car is there any way to set computerized reminders to rotate tires/do oil change after X amount of miles?

For example, I see the oil life % monitor. When does it get to 0% and need an oil change? anyone know the approximate mileage that it gets near 0%?

I do not see areas where the driver can set to do a tire rotation reminder. Only the screen where it lists PSI for all tires. Is a tire rotation reminder possible in this vehicle?

lastly, on the Uconnect bluetooth it has my address/contact book fully downloaded. but when I make phone calls it just lists the number of the person..not the contact name instead of the number on the screen. is there a way to remedy this?

Appreciate any help/suggestions!

It would help us if you would go to your profile and put in your year and model car.

Some year head might have that ability but it depends on which one it is.

Oil life is a function of time, mileage and driving conditions. There is no alert based on the oil life % monitor. Depending on what engine you have and what oil you use, oil change intervals vary. Shorter intervals and mileage for conventional oil, longer for synthetic oil.

Sorry but I am not sure on the BT / Uconnect functions and contacts.

thanks I added that to my profile. appreciate the suggestion.

Have looked for manual alerts to set for oil change/tire rotation but to no avail. of course, understand the oil life factors. i use conventional oil.

I get about 10k with fully synthetic oil. Ni there is no way to set a reminder about tire rotation, use your smart phone for that. As far as your contacts. I would delete your phone and re sync it. Make sure you give the permissions on your phone, it will ask.

When I used conventional oil I did a change, with filter, every 3 - 4k miles. I go longer since I now use synthetic in all my vehicles.

Or you could just rotate the tires when you do your oil change. I'm at 107K miles on my 13 and the oil change light comes on about every 10K miles. I rotate the tires at that time and have not had any issues with uneven wear.

that is what I plan on doing. when you say the oil change light comes on is that where the % remaining hits 0%? or is there another light/alert for that?

Mine is a 2013 model. It just gives me a reminder when it's time to perform an oil change. There is no % remaining display that I have found.
