Should I do my first car service at 1,500 miles?
I purchased my 6 in mid-Nov., 2013. It's almost 6 months since the purchase. As per the owner's manual, I am supposed to do my first car service in mid-May since the time is about to hit the limit.
However, my car has only 1,500 miles on it, which is far less than 7,500 miles limit. In the manual, it recommends the service every 7,500 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first.
I saw some articles claiming the oil that comes with the car is for *break-in* purposes. I am not sure if 1,500 miles is enough for these purposes?
My concern is, if I do not do my first car service when time hits the "6-month" limit, would it void or affect my warranty?
I emailed Mazda, and the reply seems not quite helpful:
"Regarding your warranty inquiry, your Mazda Warranty Information booklet advises any repairs due to lack of maintenance may be declined warranty coverage. However, there is no way for us to predict whether going beyond 7,500 miles or 6 months will affect the vehicle or your warranty coverage."
