is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions such as frequent short-trips, trailer tow, extremely
hot or cold ambient temperatures, and E85 fuel usage will influence when the “Change Oil” message
is displayed. Severe Operating Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate as early as
5,600 kilometres since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible, within the next 800
