you should be able to go 7500 miles now, as the 6000 was for the old schedule, but it's still a good idea though to get it looked at

What year model is it ?
If it is new, check your owners manual.

'17 RT Limited

Quick question: the dealer in Tucson where I bought my 2018 RTL told me: First oil change at 600 miles, the dealer in Phoenix where I live told me: First oil change at 9500 miles or every 6 months. So very confused here! Little help will be very appreciated. Thank you.

READ your owners manual.

My guess for a first service is somewhere between those numbers.

IIRC, the first service recommendation for my '17 RTL was 3000 miles.

While I don't know exactly what your manual says, many dealers and mechanically inclined people will recommend changing the break in oil at around 600 miles. This helps remove any leftover contaminants from the machining and assembly process.
