I have a new CTS with 1,400 miles on it. It's 4 months old. Should I get the initial oil change at a particular mileage, or should I just follow the Oil Life Monitor? For the initial oil change, I would think that you should clean out the oil at a given mileage due to particles from the break-in process. What mileage should it be changed?

When I bought my CTS they told me to bring it in after 5000KM and after that every 10,000KM…..

The factory service manual says to run the OLM to zero then you have two gas tank fillups to get the oil changed, or yearly.

That's why I asked about the initial oil change. Due to the break in process, I believe it's suggested that you don't follow the oil change monitor and you should change the oil at a particular mileage. I was just wondering how many miles that would be.
