    I have had mine since 10/31(?)/2012 and just rolled over 11K miles.

    No issues to date, and only 2 oil changes in!

    Not wanting to get "off topic" but... When did you do your FIRST oil change? I've heard Honda uses
    a "break in" oil and you shouldn't R & R it prematurely. As a small engine mechanic for more than
    2 decades, I've always thought the first oil change was critical to remove the microscopic metal
    shards that occur during break in. What's your opinion ?

    Trust the Honda engineers, leave it in as long as possible.

    I waited til the iMid said 15% which was around 5k miles. Changes in engine technology and oil.. The engines are built with break-in in mind. Like I said though I trust the guys who built the motor.

    Yeah, me too. Aside from the advances in oil and engine technology, I think Honda makes one of the best oil filters in the industry. Recommended oil change on my '04 Accord was 10K

    I got mine 7-8 months ago and it's currently 14xxx miles. Over half those damn miles are from visiting family 6 hours away.

    How accurate is that oil percentage reading? I think mine has only moved 10% in 1k. maybe it just hit 80%. are you guys following that, or just doing a change every 3-4k
