It moniters that - but it doesn't actually monitor the condition of the oil. If your water pump is weeping coolant into your oil pan the computer may say it has 40% left but your engine is full of sludge. You wait until 8000 miles and wonder why your engine is cooked.

going by the computer for suggested oil changes does not mean you do not ever check the oil levels and condition of oil.

So how do you check the condition of the oil without draining it?

The last time I looked under the hood was when I bought my 2010 Silverado. I get it serviced when I get an email from GM telling me it's time.They also check other engine specs.
