2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Q&A
2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Question: 30,000 Mile Services
I was looking at the included Services and Procedures for the 30,000 Mile Service and I just wanted to know if I request that some of those included services not be provided will the estimate go down or is it a MUST be provided service. I just ask because I replace my own engine oil and filter and I did it about 1,000 or maybe 2,000 miles ago and its synthetic oil so I am good for another 3,000-4,000 miles. Also I had an issue when I did my tire rotation. I took it to a regular Automotive shop and my truck has tire pressure sensors and when this shop did the tire rotation, a little while after it started giving me an error. I took it to the dealership and they said whoever did it did not do the rotation properly. How will I know that if I take it to a shop as opposed to the dealership that this shop's tech will know how to handle and perform my trucks tire rotation properly and where I will not receive an error message concerning my tires? - Visitor
You as the consumer can recommend that the shop doesn't perform the oil change or any other part of the service you wish. Nothing is mandatory, however there are a few things that if not performed may void your warranty, things like spark plugs, air filters and oil changes, but you're not talking about avoiding those right? As for the tire rotation, I'm not exactly familiar with what the one shop did incorrectly, but you can ask them ahead of time or take it to the dealer for tire rotations. - Visitor
