It went to the dealer for 1200 and two additional oil changes.

When you turn the car on, what does your indicator say?

And here is a much more useful link to actual policy:

Thanks for that link to the bulletin by the way, it states that some cars mileage will be insufficient for the computer to call for an oil change at 12 months for service so it is looking like there is a possibility of having to take it in without the car indicating.

There is some time though, it may be 365 or more since in service but there was the 1200mi oil change that I wasn't accounting for at first

5k in two and a half years is low! You beat me
