Ummm, what's your point? As I pointed out, I had oil service 3,500 miles BEFORE the car computer said it needed to be done.

So hasn't this vehicle actually been taken care of better than most?

How do they define "low mileage" though. I had 10,500 miles on the car (3,500 miles away from the computer-driven oil change) -- where's the cut-off?

Actually it would be an oil change every 10,500 miles (assuming my yearly average stays the same).

What's a scope?

My 7 year old son has watched this 20 times now (literally). He will not stop watching this (I recorded it on our DVR).

He is fascinated by the "army of robots".

NO need to go to dealer. Just put in sport mode.
