Initial Service?

Ok, I'm at 13 months and pushing 14K miles with no service notice. When should I expect the first service and what is the interval going forward?

"...hovering like a fly waiting for a windshield on the freeway..." p.g.

Most dealers will do a free oil change at 12-months, regardless of the mileage. Depending on how you drive, the vehicle could go another 5-10K miles before service dictated an oil change. FWIW, at least with my dealer, they did not reset the computer for the service interval when they did the 12-month one (done now twice), and did another when the computer said, so in about 18K miles, I've had three oil changes, two at 12-month intervals, and the third at the 'normal' interval. At two years, they should do a brake fluid flush, regardless of mileage.

Yep, dealers will do a free annual oil change as part of the maintenance plan. you should change the oil every year, regardless of mileage.
