I also think that the oil change intervals probably make little difference in the overall lifespan of the car. There are so many other things that can and do go wrong before the engine starts to be a problem. That being said, I think we latch on to it as a way to feel like we have some control over the reliability of the car. Other components that are a nuisance and sometimes costly to replace will fail many times before the engine will (window regs, subframe tears, various sensors, cooling system, etc)
