You might want to read pages 225 thru 235 of the Owners Manual. It is fairly extensive on maintenance items and intervals. I'm going to follow the Oil Life Monitoring system. Under normal use, there is no need to service the vehicle more frequently than recommended by the smart maintenance system.palo-alto said:the owners manual is not very clear on when is the first recommended service/check-up? the dealer said to bring it in at 3500 miles.
