So I fire up the RRS today, and for the first time, I notice a "Service Required" message in the center display. There are no other error warnings, so I run a quick errand. Believing in the philosophy of RTFM, I do my research.
Per RRS Handbook, this message comes on when; a) you have hit your 15k mile service interval, or b) 12 months have elapsed. So I'm at 8200 miles, and have only 9 months on the clock (since purchase).
Checking the VIN information on TOPIx, it says the car was built end of July '10. This would equate to just over a year.
I call my service guy up, and he says that the message is a mistake, and although the reset of the service date is done on customer delivery, many MY 10-11's are coming in with incorrect warnings. Says it must be a software glitch.
Has anyone else had premature warnings? The message only appears for 2 seconds on start-up. I'm thinking the PDI was not done properly.
