The current discussion on oil changes has me wondering how many of us trust Honda's computer calculated Maintainance Minder technology enough to follow it's recommendations. Hence the poll.
There are several Honda's now that have the OLM/HAL. The 2006 Civic is one of them, and the Civic Hybrid group on Yahoo is all worried that it means they have to change their oil sooner. And one person even went so far as to say what would stop a dealership from throwing the Ridgeline HAL into the Civic to force earlier changes. I thought it was funny myself.Hazcat said:Has anyone had experience with the oil life monitors on other cars? GM's had them out for a while, but I never had one. Are they on other Hondas?
My wife's 2006 Civic Si has its own MM, but we just got it, so no idea when it's first oil change will occur. Based on her mileage, we may end up having to change oil etc at its one year anniversary instead of mileage! But we'll have to see. If I get to drive it much this summer (for my summer work I travel all over the country) then we may have higher mileage.Hazcat said:Has anyone had experience with the oil life monitors on other cars?
