I read that Mobil-1 US is not as quality as it used to be in order to price it self lower for the competition/cut costs. Changing oil at 15K makes me feel wierd.
Mobil1's reputation is well established worldwide. That the manufacturer is prepared to issue a warranty settles the question about its quality. Naturally, preferences differ.

15k oil change is going to feel weird at first and understandably so. This is a major mindset change for everyone. Might I suggest that you start at 11k, then 12k, then eventually 15k and monitor your car's performance along the way. I'm going to start at 10k then 12k then 14k and 15k, with a stock filter change at every 5k....at least until I get one of their extended performance filters.
