Default Oil Change and Maint' Reqd Light

I just got a new Camry (yesterday!) and have started looking over the
brochures etc. that came with it. It appears that a "Maintenance Required"
light has to be reset when the oil is changed every 5000 miles. Is this
something that a dealer has to do? It would really tick me off if I can't
change my oil myself (or at an independent garage) without requiring a trip
to the dealer to reset this light.

TIA
- Dave

Light come on at 5k but you can easily reset it --- read the owner's manual
its in there. (It's like pushing and holding the odo reset when you turn the
key on).
