Is it necessary to change the oil in a v6 accord after the initial break-in period of 600 miles? My friend just bought a new accord and if so I'll need to show him how to do it.

i would break in any car (not literaly..lol). even if the dealer says they already are. there was a post a long time ago about a guys dad that worked at an acura dealer, pulled out a type r and raced a celica GTS. he told many stories of dealer empolyees (sp) doing burnouts and ragging out new cars.

in oil change after the break in (which is like 500-650 mi usually) isnt necessary coz the oil is still basically new and wont turn into sludge...again its not necessary but if u want to it sure wont hurt the car...
