2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Third Scheduled Service
July 15, 2014
As Ed mentioned our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was pretty close to calling for service, and I happened to be driving it when the "Oil Change Due" warning and beep fired off. I believe I've lucked out with each of our Corvette's services (1, 2,) so far, so why should the third one be any different?
We switched up the routine a bit for #3, going to Martin Cadillac GMC right up the street from our office instead of hoofing it down to Culver City. They don't SPECIFICALLY say they're a Chevy dealer, but they're a fully certified GM shop with access to the computer systems and the ability to process this as a free service instead of trying to charge us. They've also got the Mobil 1 oil our dry-sump equipped Z51 Stingray likes.
We didn't have an appointment but they were done with our car in just about two hours (we told them we weren't in a rush) and were kind enough to leave it out front instead of somewhere in the back where a porter would take 35 minutes to find it.
The total charge this time, as with the other times, was $0.00. Unfortunately, this will be the last of our free services. GM's policy is 2 years, 24,000 miles or four services whichever comes first. We're at 22,903 miles and it seems pretty much impossible that we'll burn out this oil in the next 1,097 miles.
