Hmmm GT service interval worry.

I now have my GT 1.9JTD exactly one year but I have only done 5,700 miles on it and the garage are telling me that I need about 12,000 done before it is due any service.
I changed the oil and filter at 3,000 miles myself but I was wondering if any fuel filters etc might need changing etc.

The car is going like a swiss clock though and is a dream to own.

Re: GT service interval worry.

Read your warranty, I think the garage are talking rubbish. Service intervals are usually 12k/1yr, 24k/2yr, 36k/3yr etc etc and you must have the service done by whichever comes first. In your case, one year is up, technically they are right saying it should be done at 12k but they are forgetting the age.

Otherwise your car wouldn't be serviced for another year, can't see Alfa liking a warranty claim with that kind of history

Re: GT service interval worry.

For this type of usage (well under 12,000 miles) the Alfa service booklet I have specifies a low mileage annual service which is determined only by time from last service - hence at 1 year.

Re: GT service interval worry.

In my service book, effective 04.04 it says as shown in the photo and describes what happens if you reach 1 year without crossing 12k miles.

(As Sunbar says. Sorry, you posted as I was typing !)
