I'm going by the dash- when I asked my dealer how often, he said every 10,000 or when the oil moniter says 10%.

I change oil and air filter in my Ridgeline twice a year, once in spring and once in fall. I drive 12-13K a year. My MM is at about 40% doing this. I'll do the wife's HRV the same way. That way I'm not stuck changing oil in the middle of winter.

first oil change/ service

How many miles before I take my HRV in for the first service/oil change? I didn't see anything regarding a matinance table in the owners manual.

I don't know about the majority but I hate depending on some on-board gauge to tell when I need to take the vehicle in for an oil change.....
regardless of the gauge I plan on doing oil changes at a regular mileage interval.

Not sure if that will be 5K miles or 10K miles yet, but once I figure it out that's what I'll use.
I've asked a couple of Honda dealers and some say 10K and some say 5K miles..........just a little disparity there.

I like modern technology but the lack of technical details from the manufacturers sucks....

I....like it.
As I recall from my old Civic...and I may misremember, it calibrates based on how you drive initially. And...if you don't like it, ignore it and go by the old rules of thumb.

My salesman said the first oil change should be at 5k because it has an extra additive in it for new cars. Then 7 after that.

My dealership says I must go by what the vehicle says (or earlier) to keep my lifetime power train warranty through them. I also have to get preapproval before having the oil changed or any other work anywhere but there. (They didn't act like that was very hard - just gave me a sheet with a number to call and said I would have to provide info.)

For the warranty, I am supposed to follow the schedule which will be added sometime at http://www.edmunds.com/car-maintenance/guide-page.html.
