oil change

daughter has a 2006 CLK 350, new to her Nov. 2009. She has a very short trip to & from work, less than 4 miles, then local shopping, it adds up to about 6K a year. Do we wait for the car to tell us to do an oil change, or should we do an oil change on a yearly or less time frame ?

The car should "tell you" to take in for service at least once per year no matter what the mileage is.
