Um, check engine lights come on for a reason, not because you crossed over the 10,000 mile mark. Although, you are due for an oil change.

To quote many great and knowledgeable men, 'Read the Owners Manual'.

Is this the Maintenance Required light, or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp? This is an important distinction.
If the former, see my earlier post. If the latter, it is most assuredly NOT because you hit 10,000 miles.
Since your expensive new car is UNDER WARRANTY, ignorance of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp may VOID YOUR WARRANTY on account of abuse. Take it in to the dealer. If there is a problem, chances are about 99.9% it will be covered under the warranty that you paid for as part of the purchase price of the car. You would not believe how expensive some of the emissions components are that can go bad early in the car's life.
If, however, you really enjoy throwing away money and potentially wrecking that $15,000 investment you've made, then by all means go to AutoZone, get them to turn off the light, then drive blissfully offf into the sunset.

Since the OP said 10,000 miles, perhaps he was the one who confused one with the other. Maybe he did mean the Maintenance Required light.

Either way, one musn't assume anything and simply answer the question asked. If you want a right answer, you have to ask the right question.
