I was just wondering how you guys felt about the first "break in" oil change. I was thinkiing around 1000-1500 miles, 2000 max.
I have been following the DIC on my HHR for eight years now and have gone as much as 11,000 miles (DIC showed 11% oil life) between oil changes with no ill effects. I have used synthetic oil since new. With 133,000 mile on the car, no oil consumption. MY last oil change, 8000 miles with the DIC showing 38% oil life. I keep looking at an Encore as a replacement for the HHR, but at $28K out the door price and all the GM recall issues makes me hesitate and a new car purchase at this time.
Using the oil life monitor is good advice. I have a problem with it, however. I accidentally reset it.
