Default Oil Change intervals

Hi, I have a 2014 ES 350 and just had an oil change. They put in Havoline SAE 0W-20 Oil-Full Synthetic GF4. At what mileage interval should I have this changed again. They sticker they put on my windshield has 6,000 miles. Everywhere else I have read says at minimum 10,000 miles.

The very unfriendly guy at oil change place said that my car would tell me when to change the oil based on computer readings of viscosity, temperature, etc. However, that maintenance notification popped up dead on the money at 3,000 miles last time I had it changed (with full synthetic).

Thank you in advance for your help.

Here is the recommended oil change schedule from Lexus

What are the oil change intervals using synthetic oil?

Lexus vehicles in which 0w-20 synthetic oil is required have been approved for extended oil change intervals of 10,000-miles/12-months. However, you should continue to check the oil level regularly and top off if needed.

Engines that recommend 5w-20 conventional oil, but allow the optional use of 0w-20 synthetic oil, as per the Owner's Manual, will continue to require 5,000-mile/6-month (whichever comes first) oil change intervals if the 0w-20 is used.

If the vehicle operation meets the standard criteria for "Special Operating Conditions" such as: driving off-road, on dirt roads, towing a trailer, making repeated short trips under 32˚F, or extensive idling; the engine oil must be replaced at 5,000 mile intervals, regardless of what type of oil is used.

Please consult the Warranty & Services Guide for more information on your specific vehicle model and model year maintenance requirements.
