I got a story from my SA that they didn't care what the manual said - they care what the car calls for. Kind of odd but get a load of this. My 08 was going out of warranty and the SA said the car was calling for a plug channge at 29K miles (@ 4 years) so I said sure. Bill would have been close to $500 if the dealer had done it off warranty. So, there does seem to be some sort of CBS that allows the car to call for specifc service issues (more than just oil changes) - or else my dealer was just looking to keep me on as a customer after the warranty.
