Default Hi and new car urgent oil change warning!? - 10th September 2017, 12:35 PM

Firstly hi to all as new to forum although had a peek or two before.
Many moons ago had 53 plate Cooper S but just picked a pre reg last of the old shape Countryman Cooper S All4 which the missus will be main user.
Getting to grips with the on board computer it says Urgent Oil Change due/over due albeit it also says 09/2018 or 19000 miles!
Only got the car yesterday so I did check oil and it's as clear as vegetable cooking oil and at the correct level! Relief!
I have sent screen shots and email to salesman but seek your knowledge as owners are the best on forums for experience and similar issues.
Thank you in advance. T

I wouldn't worry, it looks like a software glitch. With the on board computer showing 2018 and the oil being clean everything points to the software.
