Default honda element oil change 1yr old 4k miles?

My Honda Element is 1 yr old and has 4k miles. The book states the car has "break in oil" and do not change oil untill 7k. Do I wait as it states or is that to long of an interval?
Thanks,

Thanks,
Even if the car is driven that little, you may want to go ahead and change the oil anyway. Oil changes are cheap compared to the cost of an engine. You're more than half way to the change mileage and personally, I'd have it changed.
