2010 Chevy Camaro SS: 9,000-Mile Service Interval

July 28, 2010

Our long term 2010 Chevy Camaro SS has this nifty little service minder light that, unlike some from German companies with TLAs I can think of, doesn't shut off until you cycle through it with the menu button. I like that. Even if you get in and set up your iPod, find your phone, get the seat belt on, do whatever, you won't miss the "YOU NEED SERVICE" light.

In related news to the functionality of the light, our Camaro needed service.

At 10,224 miles we had the oil changed and a number of TSBs performed. Mike Schmidt said, "we're back on the road. Here's hoping the Camaro remains bulletproof from this point forward." It cost $37.61.

And today, at 19,312 miles we had our second oil change. An oil change cost $36.09 this time at Chevy of Santa Monica.

9,088 miles between oil changes is pretty darned good if you ask me, but then again, all of these new cars with oil-life minders seem to be going about that far.

As for Schmidt's hope that it would remain bullet-proof, it has, except for one little transmission issue.
