You are most likely right but it makes me feel better to know the oil and filter are fresh and clean.
I had saved the oil filter from my first oil change a few weeks back. I carefully took it apart today, slid the filter element out of the outer housing, and then drained the residual oil out into a clean container. This confirmed for me why I like to do an early initial oil change. There were many small metal particles visible in that residual oil with some thin slivers of metal up to 1/8" long.
Don't know if it's recommended or not but I changed the oil in my new 2015 CC SLT 4x4 with 6.2 engine at 600 miles just for the peace of mind.

olddutchfarm replied to HOTTWIN's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsI purchased a certified 2014 Sierra CCSB about 2 months ago and discovered flaking-off frame coating with extensive frame rust the next day. My dealer worked with me and helped me fully understand what a repair per the tsb would look like and also gave me an option to get into a new truck. I am now in a new 2015 truck that has a much thicker and more durable looking frame coating.
