Hey guys, I just bought a 2011 Coupe a couple of weeks ago. I work in a different city from which I live so I commute about 140 miles each day (70 miles each way). My question is, I'm currently at 3000 miles. Should I go ahead and change my oil or should I wait until the 5000 mile complimentary first service? I keep hearing not to make the first oil change at 3000 miles so that the rings can be seated properly in the engine. Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere else.
Honda dealers don't recommend synthetic oil, because it's not part of required maintenance on any Honda engine, in reality it's performance is significantly better than any dino oil and there is unlimited evidence to support that.
When dealers give advice like that, just use common sense and ignore them. Can you imagine saying yes to every service they recommend?
