You know the car comes with synthetic oil from the factory, right? I agree and adhered with your policy twenty years ago, but times have changed significantly and engines are built to amazingly better tolerances.
Interesting how there are these competing myths about how synthetic is no better than regular oil changed regularly (some truth there if the change intervals are short enough), and how it is so superior to regular oil that you cannot use it until after engine settles in.
As a fun anecdote, I bought a new PT Cruiser in 2001. Used regular engine oil for perhaps a thousand miles (I'd have to look up my log book - might have gone longer) and then switched to synthetic. It burned a quart of oil like clockwork every 1,500 to 2,000 miles - within factory spec. When I hit 100,000 miles, there was a sudden change and oil consumption dropped to zero. Wild! Mpg remained the same though.
Loving modern vehicles. 7,500 miles on the Niro - ready for first service, no oil used. Same with my 2012 Honda motorcycle after 15,000 miles. Mind you, both are low compression, low power vehicles.
