Mines the same way, and I too am scared of inaccurate readings.

Case and point, I changed my oil a couple weeks ago. I put in 5 quarts. The dipstick showed I was at "Max." [&:] I checked it a couple of days ago and somehow managed to bend my dipstick up even more, but the oil still reads full so I don't know whats up.

Why would you ask that in here? Make another post...

Anyways, mine took 6.5 quarts last time. And yes, the dipsticks are dumb.

Per the owner's manuals; '99 to mid 2001 are 5 qts., ;ate 2001 to 2004 are 6 qts.--they changed the oil pan design/capacity in mid 2001, along with a bunch of other things...
