'18 Premium DGM Low-tech, "StealthGeezer"
"I'm not an expert at anything" and "Perspective is Everything"
My car went to the dealer for the first service, only because I wanted to see what their operation was like. Didn't go back for another service. Then only for warranty work, which was twice.
For me, if I have to go to the dealer, I'm going to be in line when they open the door in the morning, so at least I don't have to wait for other customers in front of me.
2016 Quartz Blue Pearl Premium CVT.
Interior: LED lighting, auto dimming mirror, dashcam, trim rings on climate knobs.
Exterior: Window visors, pin stripe, side molding, RokBlokz mudflaps.
I'll be visiting the dealer every 6 months until I hit 36 months from purchase just because I got 36 months of scheduled maintenance with the car. After that I'll do my own.
That said, my interactions with my local dealer, from sales to service, have been outstanding. I went in a few weeks after purchase for them to replace a cosmetically defective headlight housing, and for the first service at 6 months. Appointments need to be made at least 2 weeks out, but I scheduled 8 AM and they had me out in about an hour.
