Default 2011 MPG random resets and oil change needed message

Hi,

I have a 2011 T & C with about 8000 miles. It has been randomly reseting the MPG when I turn it on. Always resets to 18.7 mpg. At first it was very rare, now it is nearly daily. Also, it called for the first oil change at around 5500 miles. Then it started wanting the next oil change about 1000 miles later?! It also seems like it has started to run a little rough for the first minute or two cold. Seems like something computer related to me. Any clues? I will of course take to a dealer under warranty, but any "heads up" is greatly appreciated.
