Another problem with these long oil change intervals is that most people never check their oil. How many engines have been ruined by people assuming everything is fine because of the monitor running their cars out of oil.

I'd never use the oil life monitor. I go by how it looks on the stick. I know using the oil monitor is "probably" ok, but "probably" doesn't cut it when it comes to an engine on a $35,000 car.
