If you typically replace your vehicle every 3-5 years, following the Maintenance Minder may be a good choice for you, if you prefer
Maintenance minder does not analyze your engine oil, but runs algorithms/trends. In some cases, your vehicle may travel 10k before the oil life light is at 0%. This takes a toll on your engine/vehicle life over time.

“To Help Honda Owners know when Scheduled Maintenance is due; Honda has introduced the Maintenance Minder System. Honda no longer has a 'recommended maintenance time/mileage schedule.'
To save you, the customer, time and money Honda created the Maintenance Minder system to show the engine oil life in the information display, letting the vehicle’s owner know when the engine oil needs replacing and maintenance is due.”
There are conflicting opinions on the benefits of following your maintenance minder's schedule. Following is some information to help you decide how you can best protect your investment in your vehicle. Different vehicle owners have different vehicle goals:
Some owners replace their vehicle every 3-5 years, etc.
Some owners want to keep their vehicle as long as possible.
There is no right or wrong.
As the goal differs, so does the process.
CHOOSE THE PROCESS THAT BEST FITS YOUR SCHEDULE AND YOUR VEHICLE GOALS

PROS: Manufacturer Implemented - Gives you confidence in the state of your vehicle. Convenience of the dash light makes it hard to ignore. Will certainly sustain the first few years of ownership
CONS: If you plan to have your Honda for more than 5 years - 75,000 - 200,000+ miles, these items are for your consideration:
Real-Time Engine Oil Monitor?
Engine Oil Level?
Synthetic vs. Conventional Engine Oil?
Ensure longevity of vehicle?
* Main Code A should be eliminated entirely as discussed above – detrimental to engine
Fewer Trips for Service? It's like going to a fast food place three times instead of once to order a meal
