I've got about 8500 miles on my GT. It'll be due by time for an oil change in another 60 days. It went from saying I had 8000 miles left until service, to now where it's informing me I'm 33000 miles...

Get the bug guts off the car, but otherwise... don't go nuts. The car is going to sit outside for awhile after you turn it in, and then will travel a long way over multiple modes. It will be fine.
