    routine servicing free?

    I haven't found it anywhere so I guess not but I'll ask anyway. Is routine servicing such as oil changes or 10K mile maintenance checks free or do we have to pay? A few years ago when I had a BMW the routine maintenance services were no additional charge.

    Good question. I know Canadian side we get free scheduled maintenance, but if you're in the states, i'll have to let someone else chime in.

    Nothing Is Free

    There's no such thing as free. I believe the price difference of the SRX in Canada is around $10,000. The BMW is more expensive too. Routine service is figured into the price of both.

    To answer your question, no, routine maintenance is "not" included in the U.S. price.

    That is true, but all the first service is, is an oil change and an inspection. Otherwise, you have to pay for all the services.

    I would rather pay for my services than have it built into the price of the car. That way if they mess something up I feel more justified bitching about it.

    mmmhhmmm. yea, as much as there is competent professional mechanics out there, working on our great GM vehicles... nothing beats the solid and satisfactory knowledge of doing it oneself.

    That said, i will do the first oil change (at 800km) myself, and have the dealer do the oil changes and maintenance if i am in the city. (I live 1.5 hours from the nearest Cadillac dealer).

    Nothing free came with my vehicle.

    And Cadillac charges upwards of $100 for oil changes.

    I lease, so anything other than that goes
    wrong its covered.

    Many dealers offer free maintenance packages but they usually roll it into the price or use that perk to keep the price where they want it.
    With Mobil 1 fills not many are willing to step up to the plate.
    GM does not offer that on any car other than XLR.
    On an XLR scheduled maintenance was paid for in full while the vehicle is still under factory warranty.
