Oil change indicator

My oil change indicator came on at 3500 miles. I attributed this to it being new. I changed the oil and reset the monitor. It has now come on again at 7500 miles. That's only 4000 miles since my last change. This seems odd as my driving has been pretty standard along the way. Nothing crazy, no off roading. The manual states 8000 between changes. What have your experiences been?

Re: Oil change indicator

My 2012 rolled right past 3500 this weekend. Im at 3600and still no light. Im not changing it till it comes on either! Im on 30 mile hiway drives 80% of the miles so with the long trips it may come on later for me.

Re: Oil change indicator

If you do short trips, stop and go in town type driving, the system usually indicates change at 35000 - 4000 miles. Those of us that spend most of our time on the highway and at highway speeds get 8000 miles indications.
