And, if you do, what brand of oil do you use?
Mobil 1 with Motorcraft Filter.
I had the ford dealer do mine.
Castrol with Motorcraft filter
Royal purple hps and a k&n hp1002 filter every 7500km

I use Mobil 1 in both cars, Motorcraft or Purolator filters.
Don't trust anyone else other than my gf and myself to do it I use Mobil 1 with the K&N wrench on filters. Still need to get the socket for that lol.
Always use Mobil 1 and Purolator filters.
Speaking of which, it's time for it's first change.
I'll let the dealer handle these, $11.95 LOFs for the entire time I own the car. And these are using MotorCraft Genuine Parts. Honestly can't beat that. Plus I live in an apartment and gave up most of my tools when I moved back to Houston.
I haven't looked at the service schedule yet to see what is recommended but I guess my car is supposed to alert me now when she needs to be lubed. My WRX was 5k intervals with synthetic oil. I'll probably stick to the 5k schedule because the math is easy. lol
Until dealer says it doesn't need service yet at the 11.95 rate and to wait until it tells you to change it

Yeah, then I just go to another dealer somewhere else and have it done at 5k. I don't show dealer loyalty if I'm given a hard time about something they offered me.
Motorcraft full synthetic and Motorcraft filters
I do it in my buddy's garage
Mobil 1 and Bosch oil filters
I'm a royal purple guy for my race car, and I haven't done my ST yet, my dealership offered me one free full service which I took advantage of, I will report back when I change the oil in the ST my first time.
As far as filters: Motorcraft all the way!
Always change my own oil, helps me keep track of how the rest of the car is doing.
Royal Purple and Motorcraft filter every 5k miles
Just had the dealer do my oil change Motorcraft Full Synthetic and Motorcraft filter.
Just did my first oil change on th ST yeaterday at 1700 miles. Mobil 1/Motorcraft FL-910S
