Ya, my Silverado is recommended 7500 miles. I tried that method and replaced a $6000 engine at 130,000 lol. Piston and cylinder wear. Never ever again. Oil changes are cheap and easy. That recommendation is for people that don't intend on driving their vehicles till they die, unless they want them to die sooner then they should. Jap vehicles don't apply lol. They just run forever. I'll never ever drive a car or mini SUV and a ridgeline is the ugliest truck in the history of man kind, cant afford a tundra, so I drive my full size chevy or ford.
