Wouldn't it be covered by your warranty if you're only at 8,100 miles?
Scheduled maintenance items such as oil changes are not covered under warranty.


What is "Scenario 2 maintenance"?:dunno:
At 8100 miles the only thing the car should need is an oil change and maybe tire rotation. Anything other than that is a dealer scam.

Might need a dealer re-prep... ;)

I got 2 free synthetic oil changes when I signed my lease, so I thought that was standard with Mazda. Apparently not. Now after using those synthetic changes, they recommend sticking to Mazda's "synthetic-blend" instead(?).

Mazdas service interval for oil changes is 7500 to 10,000 miles depending on the maintenance schedule you are using. You should still be on the first oil change. Those "free maintenance" deals are far from free and usually end up with the dealer finding a way to separate you from your money.

I'm planning a Scenario 2 (10.000 Km) maintenance also. Called yesterday and they told me it would cost around $250 and if I want to rotate the tires it would be $100 more. :|

I live in Costa Rica and $350 is half minimum monthly wage

Chart symbols:
I: Inspect: Inspect and clean, repair, adjust, fill up, or replace if necessary.
R: Replace
L: Lubricate
C: Clean
T: Tighten

$100 to rotate tires!? I'm in the wrong business. For $100 per car I could do that all day long.

Modified chart symbols:
I: Ignore
R: Replace
L: Leave till next time
C: Can't figure it out
T: Too much of a hassle
