But if you didn't say anything, my guess is they would NOT reset it since the CBS is not stating that it's due.

But I have played the free oil change game pretty well.

My car has 21K on it and have received 3 free oil changes (2 free annuals, 1 CBS ) at around 5K intervals since owning the car from May 2010. It just works out with amount of miles I drive.

My CBS shows about 9000 miles remain today. I can take my car in for it's free annual anytime after 1.15.13. So I will take it in Jan/Feb for a freebie, then in the CBS will be ready to change in about another 7500K.

The system has worked flawlessy for me but but I do understand not everyone only drives about 8500-9000K miles a year. After 48 months I figure I will have received ~6-7 free oil changs. OK in my book!
