Just bought a 2018 LT this weekend. They didn’t say anything about 2 free service visits. I’ll ask Chevy but first was wondering if anyone knows. Our 16s did.

Thanks

For 2016 -2018 it was 2 free scheduled maintenance visits including a free 12 point inspection. 2 tire rotations and 2 free oil changes were included in the first 24 months or 30k miles.

For 2019 Volt the vehicle purchase includes 1 oil change, not sure about the tire rotations.

Of course if there is a problem with the vehicle while it is under the 36 month bumper-to-bumper warranty you can bring the Volt into the dealer's service department to diagnose and correct the problem at any time.

Thanks. I thought that it was still in place. They never even bothered to tell me about that, but I already suspected that based on the prior purchases.

1 complimentary oil change for the Volt makes sense. The only reason I've had two oil changes is because they were free. Remember, these actually aren't free - they're hidden in the purchase price of the car.

Just DON'T take the free tank of gas if you plan to be 99 % electric :)

This is because they know that they will never see you again. :( Selling a Volt is a sad thing for a dealer because it rarely needs maintenance and they don't break.

Depending on usage, our first oil change comes 10K-30K miles. Aside from that, everything else we'd see the dealer for in the first few years should be warranty service - so I've never understood what good these "free service visits" are except marketing fluff.

I’d have to dig it up, but I read some fine print that said if you bought a Volt after, like May 2018 (like I did), you only got one service visit and oil change. I think corvettes also were exempted from the standard 2 year 2 visits.

Adding here that this is wrong. 2018's look like we get two. 2019's only one visit. See my correction a few posts below.

Thanks. I did not get any paperwork at all on this this time. I’ll ask when I eventually take it in.

I think I'm wrong about what I wrote above. It looks like from the link below, it is 2 visits for 2018's. And 2019's are limited to one.
Apologies for the confusion.

Thanks so much for tracking that down! Looked and couldn’t find it.
