Oil change at 6500 miles?
Just finished up one post and ready to start another, ha ha; thank goodness for the astute members of this forum.
Anyway, just received a message from the Maintenance Minder, "A01", that my oil needs to be changed, along with a few inspections. Really? At 6500 miles? I know it uses synthetic oil, which is supposed to be good for 10,000 miles. Plus, as a plugin hybrid, there aren't really 6500 miles on the engine; in fact, I pumped 84.7 gallons since Nov 1, multiplied by EPA estimate of 42 mpg, means the engine has approximately 3557 miles on it.
I'm interested in other's experiences; have looked through the Maintenance Minder threads but no questions like mine. Thanks as always!
