I am about 15 months in to the EV world and I love it. I love never putting gas in it and I love the low maintenance. Speaking of maintenance, I am now at 27,000 km, so I am overdue for my one year checkup, which by the way, the sales person told me is the only one I'd need. "Just bring it in once a year for a battery check, etc."
Obviously the 12000km service is a joke. Rotate the tires and "inspect" a bunch of stuff. The 24,000 includes a battery check, brake flush, cabin filter, and apparently key battery replacement, plus the usual "inspect" crap. For this, the good people at the dealership want $331 plus tax. My question is, if I tell them to kindly go screw a Saturn with their overpriced maintenance package, what does that mean for my warranty? The guide and everything are very clear that its needed for the warranty. But I will not be gouged. I will do the cabin filter myself, no problem. Does the brake fluid even need flushing? For a 2017 car with 27,000km on it?! I get inspecting things so that you can catch problems, but come on. What does the internet think? Thank you.
