no 10000. is not to long with the new oils they have and the way the engines are now made it keeps the oil cleaner longer ....also it is synthetic blend oil that is used ...the car manufactures are doing this now for green credits meaning if you produce a car that needs less maintenance its less back into the environment....and they receive more credit from EPA..... you can change it sooner its totally up to you ...you should check it every gas fill up to make sure your not using oil and see how clean it is then.... here is the menu to change it if you want Vehicle Info Push and release the UP or DOWN arrow button until the Vehicle Info icon is highlighted in the EVIC/DID. Push and release the RIGHT arrow button and Coolant Temp will be displayed. Push the LEFT or RIGHT arrow button to scroll through the information sub-menus and Push the OK button to select or reset the following resettable sub-menus: Tire Pressure Push and release the UP or DOWN arrow button until “Tire Pressure” is highlighted in the EVIC/DID. Push and release the RIGHT arrow button and one of the following will be displayed: If tire pressure is OK for all tires a vehicle ICON is displayed with tire pressure values in each corner of the ICON. If one or more tires have low pressure, “Inflate Tire To XX” is displayed with the vehicle ICON and the tire pressure values in each corner of the ICON with the pressure value of the low tire displayed in a different color than the other tire pressure value. If the Tire Pressure system requires service, “Service Tire Pressure System” is displayed. Tire PSI is an information only function and cannot be reset. Push and release the LEFT arrow button to return to the main menu. Refer to “Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)” under “Starting and Operating” for further information.

According to manufacture specifications the oil type the Chrysler 200 (all models) do carry is "Ultra-Synthetic". This type of oil, in combination with how the engine works, will take so much longer to break down viscosity. The "Change Oil" message does not come on because you have reached any specific amount of miles but rather because the oil viscosity is below 10%. So, depending in how you drive the oil viscosity will break down sooner or later so not always at the same amount of miles. Hope that helps ....
