This is page 638 of the 720 page owner's manual, not in the 200 page user's guide.
I've seen this but it still concerns me that all they say is to wait for the oil change indicator. No mention of how many miles you should have at that time or how much time has passed from purchase or last oil change.

Another issue I have is, what the heck kind of oil is in the engine from the factory? Synthetic? Fossil? Break-in oil? 5W-20? 20W-50? 5W-20W-50W-100!!!
