Hmmm, no engine oil change light has activated yet since purchase and I've hit 7000 miles (11250 km). I did switch out the factory break in fluid at around 1800 miles (2900 km) so I'm not necessarily too concerned yet, although I've become accustomed to switching oil out every 5000 miles with other vehicles.
Is this normal? I know the maximum change interval can reach as high as 8000 miles, but I thought the intervals were shorter with the Abarth? Some input appreciated.
