    Mirage MID (Multi Information Display) service reminder / wrench icon





    What does the information with number and wrench stand for? (bottom right)

    I think I actually have 2:

    7200 wrench
    6 wrench

    7200 KM/miles to service interval or 6 months to service intervals ....
    The car needs service every 20K KM/miles or every year.

    This I know for sure

    I called the dealership cause I didnt believe that I would be ok with a 7500(12070km) Mile oil change in a car that takes 2.9 qts(2.7L) of oil. frankly it scares me. But I came from a mantra of 3000Miles(4828KM) or 6 weeks(Im sure weeks are the same lol) whichever came first in my evo and that took 4.5Qts(4.25 L). With that being said anyone else find it weird in the US that we measure engine size in liters (I know its relatively new to do this) but measure oil levels in qts.

    Indeed, you guys are weird ... engine in liters, oil quantity in qts and fuel in gallons .... trying to please everyone .... lol ....
    Not to mention changing oil every 3k miles? Insanity .... not only it cost way much more money (raises cost of ownership significantly) but also it's seriously bad for the environtmental. On my Galant I change the oil every 30k KM. It really doesn't matter how many L or qts the engine needs (on my Galant is uses NO oil at all so the level stays the same from the first refresh till 30k later).

    Basically I make up for the fuel price difference for the total cost of ownership in the service fees. I'm planning on servicing (incl. refreshing oil) every 20k until the warranty expires then every 25k KM of oil refreshing or servicing.

    Every 3k refreshing? what a ripoff .... guys, you own a japanese cars .... these engines are extremely strong, it runs well as long as there's still oil in it. Mine's 17k now, 3k more then refresh the oil/service. I strongly encourage you all to do the same. Use A grade oil, Amsoil 5W-20 or Shell oils, guaranteed to lubricate your engine for over 20k KM!

    Ditto to what m4v3r1ck said. I change my oil on my cars every 10k-15k miles or so (I also do the occasional oil analysis to make sure everything is good). I do use synthetic. If I used conventional I'd go ~7500 miles or whatever the manual says. OEMs aren't about to take a chance on oil changes, its the life blood of an engine, and they're easy to do. Rest assured that the 7200 mile interval is probably actually a conservative number.

    Agrees ... Synthetic oils nowadays you only need to change every 15k miles. I'm surprised that your MID's set very conventionally. Besides, new engines aren't supposed to use mineral oils anymore (besides the fact that in europe you HAVE to order the mineral oil exclusively since no cars are using it except for oldtimers).
