    Time for an oil change?

    I only have 3,200 miles on my Acura ILX Hybrid (purchased in August, 2012). The oil is down to 5%... should I be taking it to the dealership or is there any reason I can't just top-off the oil and wait until 5,000 miles for the tune-up?

    Thanks!

    I have 3000 plus miles on my ilx hybrid and it's only at 70% oil. Do you do a lot of city driving? I would take it to the dealer at last once to check on everything.

    Follow the IMid on your first oil change. 5% = time to change.
