    Maintainence light comes on automatically at calculated mileage intervals. Acura allow longer oil change intervals but I still change mine every 3000 and oil filter every 6000 it will definitely add long life to the engine. Depending on mileage the car's service requirements will vary but look for a good Acura/Honda independent repair shop in your area. Look in your owner's handbook there is a list of require maintenence there.
