They do, The Latest Mustang has the option to set such a reminder at a custom interval.If only vehicles came with some odometer-like function. Maybe a trip computer that could be easily reset? It would be awesome if they even included more than one trip counter... Like an A and B so I could track my miles-per-tank and also miles-per-trip or miles-since-oil-topped-off.
One day we will live this dream.
It was sarcasm... I know that's sometimes hard to detect online.They do, The Latest Mustang has the option to set such a reminder at a custom interval.
In some Kia cars you can manually setup service intervals.
Trust Honda/Acura to skip on any user friendly features.
EDIT - Hold on We do have Trip A and Trip B in the MDX. Trip A can be set to automatically reset on refueling.
Haha my bad. Yeah the trip meters have been there for decades.It was sarcasm... I know that's sometimes hard to detect online.
I KNOW that Acura includes this function. I bet EVERY vehicle sold in the last several decades includes this function. My motorcycles even have this function.
Yes, I've owned a few Nissan products that have that feature -- although it isn't actually a reminder to check the oil level, but rather a reminder to CHANGE the oil; It's in leu of a smarter maintenance minder. The Honda/Acura MID is superior, for that purpose.Haha my bad. Yeah the trip meters have been there for decades.
But some of the cars currently on sale do provide an option to set up service reminders.
On second thoughts i agree, Honda kind of system is best for non DIYers which is most of their target buyers. On My Mustang I was initially clueless as to how it helps as I could potentially set a higher mileage for changing oils that needed.The Honda/Acura MID is superior, for that purpose.
You could intentionally mis-use the interval setting, on vehicles equipped with it... But it would be a mis-use, and you'd lose the intended purpose, as you'd now have to manually track when to actually change the oil. Before someone says "well, but, you could use a sticker or count the number of times you were told to check the oil..." Sure... You could... But OP has said that is already too complicated for him.
Yeah, I use it for long trips too., other than that not much use for Trip B.The trip computer serves the purpose, quite well. And you don't lose any other functionality while using it. I bet 90% of people don't even use trip B, regularly. I only use it if I'm taking a long (multi-tank) trip and I want to track the total trip mileage on B, while A is reset every time I get fuel.
Several years of the gen2 mdx burn oil... up to 1L per 1k miles. If you didn’t add oil between oil changes, they’d run out of oil.May be a dumb question, but why would you add oil at all between oil changes?
