Take a look at the break-in UOAs recently posted around here, they're not nearly as scary as you might think.

Per Honda's recommendation I left the factory fill in my 2011 Civic for the full OCI (~6,000 mi). No problems. Two years later the car doesn't burn a drop of oil. Search for the UOA on BITOG under my same username.

Wait so changing oil too soon increases wear? I've always changed my oil ever 2500 miles or so.
