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?
