Well, not necessarily... my 2004 was actually manufactured in May of 04. You can check the actual manufacture date in the driver's side door to see when it rolled off the Honda factory floor. Still, I see nothing wrong with the "E" sitting for 1 year or more without being started; The oil and moly additives that are in the oil pan should still be plenty stable after sitting for this amount of time.Paul December said:...I bought my E at the end of the year....that means it sat without moving for a year.
What do you guys think?
I would be interested in hearing from others that have "oil life" indicators. What milage interval are you averaging when the indicator reads 5% or less?My oil minder has me change mine about every 5K, with a pretty even mix of highway & stop and go driving, with a 50 mile a day commute. Coming up on 10,700 miles, and warning me that I'm at 15% - and this will be my second oil change (with synthetic).
Had my 09 E for about 2 months now. I have put some miles on it aprox. 3050 and the oil life indicator is now at 50 %. Should I trust this sensor or just change my oil every 3000 miles? I plan on having done at the dealership. I purchased the extended warranty and, I am concerned about it being voided for some reason. I have searched this forum as well as my owners manual and can't find the info. Please help.
