Mazda Scheduled Maintenance Question - Is the dealer ripping me off??
I got a first call from the dealer regarding scheduled maintenance 4 months after purchase. What the dealer said was 4 months or 8,000 km (which ever comes first). I tried to decline it, since I drive very little (only put up 2,000 km at that point). Dealer said, I have to obide by the Mazda scheduled service or my warranty (3 years comprehensive and 5 years powertrain) would be voided. So I sad fine, paid $60 for oil and filter change (they also got me to do synthetic oil, which I didn't want, their reasoning was it is a new vehicle)
So up to this point, I've done 3 dealer oil changes (every 4 months/8,000 kms). I only have 14,000 km mileage on my car. Today I get a phone call from the dealer saying I am scheduled for a big check up (24,000km check or something like that) which is around $400. They will replace oil, check brakes etc. etc. I told they I'll have to think about it.
I tried to check my manual/warranty/website info and it is all very vague there. I really don't want to do this $400 check but also would rather avoid voiding warranty. I've had the car for almost 2 years now, it's been great, I take really good care of it and stay way under suggested mileage. What do you think I should do? I feel like I am getting ripped off with these constant service appointments where I am way under mileage wise.
