2014 Chevrolet Silverado: 7,500-Mile Service
October 25, 2013
We took our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado to the dealer for its first service. The owner's manual calls for routine maintenance at 7,500-mile intervals. The onboard oil change warning lit up sometime after that.
Our dealer visit itself was easy. We dropped the Silverado off at the Santa Monica Auto Group on Wednesday morning without an appointment. By that afternoon the oil was changed and the truck was ready for pick up.
Our service advisor, Bruce, is a big reason why we keep going to this dealership. Under his guidance our cars always seem to be turned around in an acceptably prompt manner. He has a good attitude. And he seems genuinely into cars, too, which makes for some fun conversations. This trait is refreshing, and not that common at the average dealership.
Total Cost: $47.00
Total Days out of Service: None
