9% oil life - scheduled change in a week - should I be worried?

Asked by Sep 17, 2014 at 10:57 AM about the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I waited for the oil life % warning to show like it did last time, but it felt like it had been too long. I checked, and the gauge says I'm down to 9% life. Of course, I immediately called the dealership to schedule an oil change, but they couldn't get me in until next week and I drive about 70 miles every day. Should I be concerned?
