change oil message to illuminate as early as 3,500 miles
(5 600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as
soon as possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km)."


It's usually best to read the manual ... just sayin'

I stand corrected..... I have read the owners manual and have the iphone app as well, but apparently I didn't read the manuel as closely as I should have. Thank you for your friendly advice
