Service schedules

Hi All
I have just bought a 2009 Modus Dynamiqe Auto and I have a conundrum.

The Renault web site says the normal schedule is 2 years.

My main dealer says Renault have changed the servicing regime.

My usual local garage looked it up on their service computer which recommends yearly.

My annual mileage is less than 5000 per year.

Which schedule is correct and which should I follow?

Currently in DOC22222's garage:
Grand Modus Auto Dynamique, Rover 75, Chrysler Grand Voyager, Rover P6 3500

Re: Service schedules

Hello. The service intervals for your Modus are every 12 months or every I think 18,000 miles whichever comes first. Hope this helps. Cheers Harry

Re: Service schedules

This is almost correct if the Modus is like the Clio. The intervals are 2 years/18,000 miles, whichever is the earlier.

Re: Service schedules

To be honest it is well accepted in the motor trade that the 18,000 mile service intervals are much too long and Renault have introduced shorter intervals for some models. So to maintain any warranty I suggest you ask a Renault dealer for advice and also that it be stated in writing.

Personally I would recommend at least an oil and filter change at least evry 9,000 miles or every year whichever comes first.

Re: Service schedules

I service my laguna every 18k yes but I change oil /filter every 10-11k to keep my turbo happy!
