Question about the 1st oil change - Thread closed

If the MM displays an A1 (oil change only) - I'm assuming that means I only need an oil change with no filter change?

I'm worried that I'll be getting an oil change and then a month or two later, I'll get the "B" notification and have to change the filter. Would this be the case? I'm really not understanding why Honda would recommend a filter change separately, unless that filter can last for yet another 6k miles (?)

You can choose to just do what the maintenance minder tells you to do. I change my filter every time. Some people change oil every 3k mi. As long as you do at least what the maintenance minder says.
