My dealer specifically said NOT to change the oil early. He said the factory oil contains special additives that help the engine break in properly.

Honda tells people that as well, but I have to think that is just a bunch of BS? I ALWAYS belive in getting the "break-in" oil out after about 500 miles.

Why do you believe that? Sounds like 60's thinking.

Because from the dawn of internal combustion engines to today (4/28/07) not much has changed in terms of actual metal shavings entering the oil with a new or rebuilt engine. Everyone should feel free to do what they want with their car/truck, I ALWAYS change mine at 500 miles, and I do not think it is a waste of money, you just spent upwarrds of $35,000 on a new truck, what is $40 or $50 bucks?
