What does you i-drive say when you check for oil service?
I will amplify- the language in the warranty says the car's "CBS" must be used to determine if the oil needs changing. It does not, however, say that it must display a 'change oil message'...just showing "1/2013" should be adequate to demand they change the oil in January of 2013.

Do people actually read that document in the glove box?
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
