Preface: I am one of those suckers who gets my Mazda serviced at the same dealership I purchased the car from
Recently I received a notification from the Mazda service department stating my next service for my Mazda 6 is due. I remembered vaguely that for new Mazda's (mine was purchased at the end of 2016) the service interval is every six months for the first year, then every year thereafter (or every 10,000km's, whichever comes first). Given I'm past the first year and my last service was at 14,000km's I found the notification at 18 months a bit odd (my last service was at 12 months, in December 2017)
After consulting the owner's manual it did indeed confirm my understanding that the next service is every 12 months or 10,000km's.
It seems to me that the service department is sneakily trying to slip in another service that is not prescribed by Mazda - does this really happen? Has anyone experienced similar?
