I second the change before winter recommendation. 11 months and 4k miles outta the oil is pretty good to me.

doesnt the vibe use one of the toyota engines that were known to have hot spots and be harder on oil? or was that only certain years?

I wouldnt be concerned one bit. Ive got the exact senario right now! Im two weeks away from have the same Pennzoil Ultra in my del sol for an entire year! And it has barely over 4k on it. Will I take through another winter? You bet! Im going to get my 26 dollars worth out of this jug. I do the samething with my Toyota as well. Its hard to justify oil changes with so few miles on the cars a year.
