So, we had the first oil change done at about 6,400 miles (oil life ~40%), before the service light came on. I popped a tire at about 9,300 miles, and had snow tires installed. Yesterday, at almost exactly 15,800 miles the oil life hit 15%, which prompted the following message:


So tomorrow I'm taking Sherman in for the oil change/filter, and tire rotation.

Just thought I'd share since I hadn't seen anyone post any service messages.

Yes. I had the first oil change done at a local dealership & they reset the MM....since we never let it get down to 15% the first time though, we never actually got a message, so this is the first time I've seen that. It comes on when we start up the car, but goes away as soon as we scroll to another display.

yeah, sounds the same as the Civics... it comes on at 15% as a reminder then goes away... if you let it get to or below 10% it won't go away unless u manually make it go away by scrolling through it...
They must have changed this a little.. on my old 2006 civic SI it would come up and stay up until you manually changed the display.

i had an 06 Si also and it would do exactly what i said in my other post... only at 10% and lower would it stay until you change it...

How do you reset it after an oil change? I probably won't have the dealer do any oil changes.
I have learned the hard way to bring the vehicle to the dealer to have maintainence done while under the warranty period.

Typically, nothing is found wrong.

The price of oil changes are very reasonable.

A good service department will know what to look for and pre-empt major repairs.

If something happens during the warranty period, you are covered.

All (except one very horrid dealership), would give me a heads up on what to expect for upcoming repairs.
I then had the choice to do it myself or let someone else do it.

Interesting.. I wasn't trying to contradict you, simply pointing out the behavior of mine. It's quite possible mine had a different software version or something. Since I don't have the car anymore I have no way to compare it but I remember the behavior very well. I used to find it incredibly annoying because it would always start with the message displayed and just stay there (regardless of the percentage) unless I manually changed it.

Do they not have the fixed-price servicing arrangement in the states? I paid £500 up so no worries for the next four years. If the car says jump, I'll jump!
I think some dealerships offer such things, but not where I bought mine.

So far we have 16,7XX miles and have spent:
$53 for 1st oil change at about 6500 miles
$800 for new snow tires + installation (after getting a flat) at about 9000 miles
$113 for 2nd oil change/tire rotation at about 16,300 miles

The tires couldn't be helped--just bad luck; so overall we're averaging less than $0.01/mile in maintenance costs :) Not bad.
