It is annoying for a reason... Honda really wants you to change your oil as soon as the MM alerts you.

If you the owner could disable the alert, then you may well forget to get your oil changed, and then try to sue Honda for giving you the ability to forget about it. Smart move by Honda.. both for you and for them.

They extend you a courtesy by letting you slide until 0% of that is what you want to do, but they do not recommend you do so, and are not going to just let you forget about it, because it is actually important.

As UMRdyldo stated.. if it bothers you... change your oil. Simple as that.

Turbo needs oil to change sooner then the standard engine. simply reset theMM, Ours is on at 5%, I will be changing it out in another 30 days vs now as the Mileage will only be a few hundred over the MM 750 mi. not to save Money but to extend the time the next one comes around as I may not be around to do it.

the MM is not accurate, want to argue that be my guess. 5K I should be good not living at 1500 mi intervals
