2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray: First Scheduled Service
January 13, 2014
A few days ago, our 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray called for its first oil-change, something we were expecting right around the 7,500-mile mark.
We called Bunnin Chevrolet in Culver City, our closest Chevy dealer, and made an appointment for the following day. We needed to get this done before our road trip. By the time the next day rolled around, the oil-life remaining had dipped to zero and we were pretty pleased with our timing.
There was no wait and, with the exception of the service advisor asking if it was a V8 and then confirming that we did, in fact, want Mobil 1 (the recommended oil for hard-driving), everything went smoothly. They also told us about a service bulletin (#13384) that indicated some cars may have low differential fluid levels which could lead to axle noise/overheating. Ours was checked, determined to be slightly low and topped off.
The service took about 2 hours, including a wash, and cost us nothing thanks to Chevy's 2 years of free maintenance on the Stingray.
