Makes sense to me.
Well it's always good practice to check your oil..It just never crossed my mind, being my first brand new car...In fact...the two service actions, you're talking about on the bottom end, is just fuel to the fire, in terms of warranty coverage if the engine explodes...
It's very strange for me to have not checked my oil until now...I can't believe that it never crossed my mind to do so...I guess that would be the reason we refer to the oil level waring light as "idoit light"...

wait...I did check it before a track run, which did take place shortly after my 12k service...forgot all about that...but haven't checked it since then...I guess I need to hunt down some engine oil to keep on hand, and check the oil more regularly...
