Default 10K Oil Changes ?

Owners manual for 2004 Civic clearly seems to have the interval at 10K
or 1 yr. Is that possible ? ...

cT = 0.85

if you're driving a 50's car with 50's oil technology, then no, it is
not possible. if you're driving a modern computer controlled car that
doesn't dump gas and doesn't contaminate the oil with excess soot or
other combustion products, and that car uses a lubricant with modern oil
technology, then it's more than possible.

get oil analysis done and you'll find that in a lot of cases, the 10k
interval is actually quite conservative.

Provided the correct oil is used, yes.

Don't you have a Maintenance Minder?

Yes, I think that's what it was for the 2004 Accord as well.

A year or so later they added the maintenance minder feature which
calculates wear and tear as you drive, and tends to recommend changes
somewhat more often.

My 2011 CR-V EX-L has maintenance minder. At 6000 miles it said I had 40%
(dino) oil life remaining. I stick to my old habits and change the oil and
filter (Mobil 1) every 5,000 miles. Maybe it's a waste of money, but I'd
rather do that and feel more confident. Also, the oil drained was pretty
dark - and no I didn't do a scientific analysis. I buy the oil and filters
for my cars at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts, etc. when they have a
special sale on Mobil oil & filter I stock up. To each his/her own.
