The reason I made the appt was that my car said on the dash "schedule service in 300 miles", so I called to schedule an oil change. I live in Seattle, so the climate is generally quite mild and I drive it gently (kids in the car most of the time). I understand that the 80k service is recommended based on the age of the vehicle, but, for instance, don't spark plugs wear based on how much they are used rather than how long they have been installed? I'm not trying to be cheap, but I don't want to get "taken" either. BTW, I appreciate your help!
