Check out the engine cases and covers on the Explorer. They're the same sort of mis-match.
Maybe it's some new sort of design philosophy. Bit like the ugly BMWs we see these days.

Another trick I use is to sandwich a star washer between the terminal and the cable. The star washer cuts into the lead, making a better contact.

No manufacturer is going to set the oil change interval at the point the oil has become knackered. There will always be a significant safety margin. My guess would be a saftety margin of 50%.
