2009 Mazda6 i Grand Touring: Parts On Order
April 13, 2009
Our Mazda6 went to the dealer last week for its first service and to have its various malodies repaired. Some time has elapsed since we've discussed the stripe and the stupidity, but both will be fixed soon enough. Ford of Orange had to order both a new nav system and new undercarriage molding and will be calling us when they come in.
Meanwhile, we paid $95.08 for the 5,000-mile service, which, near as we can tell, includes little more than we would have received for an oil-change-only price. Included in the service are top offs of all essential fluids, a tire rotation and pressure adjustment, brake inspection and inspection of all exterior lights. This, however, is largely our fault for asking only for the necessary service at this mileage instead of asking specifically for an oil change.
The other parts will be covered under, ahem, warranty.
