Default Maintenance Interval Question for 2008 2.5i


New here but lurked on these forums quite a bit when I was doing my research...very helpful! thank you! Love the car (2008 2.5i impreza) so far too! First time subaru owner and I love it!

I've had the car for about 3 months now and recently the dealership contacted me for my first maintenance checkup. I thought the first one was supposed to be 6000k/6months but the dealer seems to think that it is 3000k/3months - their justification was a "harsh climate" clause...I live in Canada...Alberta. I am wondering...are they just trying to pull a fast one on me or should I wait until the 6000k/6months that it says in the manual (yeah I read it )

Cheers! Thanks in advance!

I'm in Ontario, and so far, I've followed the 6k/6month cycle. Dealer sent me a letter letting me know my 6 month service is due.

We have an appointment tomorrow for our first service, 3200 miles. We're going to stick with the harsh climate schedule. Not taking any chances.

I got my notice yesterday- 2.5 months. I called my salesman, he told me I should come in at 3000 miles or 6 months, whatever comes first.
