How long should you wait to do your first oil change? I have about 700 miles on the odometer and the maintenance minder is showing 80% oil life. Is that something I should be concerned about? It seems like the oil life is possibly not what it use to be?

Its worth reminding new owners that the booklet that comes with the car is a Quick Start guide. :Darn:

the COMPLETE, ~700 page book is available on PDF from the Honda Ownerlink

http://owners.honda.com/

If you REALLY need to risk paper cuts, you can order a physical paper book for free within 6 months of your purchase.

Many say that the original oil contains more moly in it due to the moly coated parts during assembly and that it is a great idea to leave that original oil in there until the MM tells you to change it (probably around 10-15%) and that will probably be in the range of 5k-8k miles,depending on how it is being driven.
So, as others said, trust the MM for the 1st oil and filter change.
