You're asking good questions, and here are my answers.
1) I want to be certain I maintain the car acc. to warranty requirements. I am able to read the manual and the warranty and imagine that the manual contains the basics of fulfilling the warranty. My particular manual doesn't mention a requirement of performing maintenance on cars that are driven >4000 miles/year except for the one requirement of changing the oil every year and, I believe, the brake fluid every three years, which maintenance I will perform now that I know it.
The warranty is a rather lengthy document, I believe, so I'll try and hit the high spots of the warranty.
"Yes," I would like to know when I "should change my oil," if the requirement is other than the 1x/year I mentioned previously.
don't "imagine" it. READ it. you just paid kilodollars for an
expensive machine with a book on how to operate/maintain it included
free - if you can't be bothered to read this book for the sake of the
vehicle, read it for the sake of your wallet.
so it does mention the requirement for vehicles driven only 4k miles per
don't "believe", READ.
just read the owner's manual. that'll take care of the warranty.
so just ask, don't beat about the freakin' bushes.
