Oil change light
 
Does it just pop up like 3000 miles after it has been reset? It doesn't actually sense that the oil is bad and comes on, does it?

i am going to say no.

I watched mine and the miles matches my odometer.

Does it come on after 2500?? Or 3000?? My moms Infiniti u can adjust the miles for when the oil change light comes on. Can you adjust it on the GC's?

On GC WKs it will come on 3k after you last reset the EVIC.

I don't see an option to change it in the menu. Am I just missing it or what?

I think you can only adjust it in a limited or overland ? im not sure. I know its 3000 miles though factory. Dont let the light pressure you, you can go a few more miles before change, just make sure your oil is clean. If you turn the key on half way press your gass pedal to the floor 3 times within 10 seconds and it will reset the life.

and if you run higher end synthetic, you can get 5-6k miles before next change

You should be able to set the interval at either 3K or 6K

My understanding was the JGC oil change indicator is not a simplistic "# of elapsed miles", but rather based on an evaluation of several factors to provide a more realistic assessment. I would doubt an owner would be able to adjust any of the parameter thresholds.

SERIOUSLY ON AN 08, CMON hard to believe, even on a new one thats hard to swallow. so why would there be a way to change the interval if not solely mileage based
