Oil gets dirty quickly

I change the oil on my 07 LX FWD with 35,000 miles every 5k with synthetic blend. After 3k or so the oil looks pretty dirty. My Ford Focus gets oil changes less frequently and the oil always looks new. I live in L.A. and do mostly freeway driving. I've never had a car that the oil looked so dirty so quickly.

Any thoughts?
