If I listened to my dealer, I would be on oil change #3 by now. But they are just out for the money.
Depending on your vehicle, early builds had an issue where the oil minder light wouldn't come on. A software fix corrected this. If it doesn't come on in 6 months or 10k miles, take it to your dealer and ask about it.
