CBS oil change reminder

How many miles before an oil change is due does the service reminder turn yellow? My CPO warranty and maintenance plan expire next week and I'm 1800 miles from my next oil change. I'm wondering if I can squeeze in another "free" oil change if I take my car on a trip this weekend. Thanks!

Are you already planning a trip, or are you going to spend $100 in gas to get a free oil change?

They should do it, just ask.

We're planning one for Easter, so it would determine which car we take. My wife's car has more room for our baby and dog, so we'll take hers unless those extra miles would help me.

I think the priority value on the Oil Service is <2000 miles so you should be good to go.
