Personally, I would prefer the
to be changed at that sort of mileage from new - get rid of any bedding-in products.
If it flagged up necessary again in a short period, then I'd get bothered. As Coup says, in the past I have always (and typically aim to still do it) change my
before winter sets in, then again in spring when its warm enough that I can be bothered. I've dropped that to 'when its warm enough' (once a year) due to cost of
, but also that that more expensive
should (supposedly) be more stable to engine-stress-induced breakdown.
Maybe the service light has tripped because of the period of time since the service 'clock' was at zero. Had it been sitting around a while before being sold to you? There are occasions where cars have sat around for years before being sold. Can you find a date stamp on a piece of trim somewhere, to indicate when the car was made?
