Service light at 800 miles?

Sup Boys,


My service light just came on and I barely am at 800 miles. I thought service was at 1200 ? I was considering waiting until I reach 1200 to take it in, will this harm the vehicle if i do so? Thanks in advance !

take it in, its not uncommon for the light to come up a little early especially with the first service and break in miles...don't wait, b/c you never know exactly why it came on its not just an oil change done @ the first service...

Mine came on at 700 miles, it has 80 more miles since. But I'll wait until it reaches 1200 miles.

I don't know if it is so straightforward Monsta. If you take it in now, you'll get lubes changed, but not the filter. Second concern I have is - is 800 miles long enough to break in the engine, tranny, and diff? If not, you'll live with contaminated lubes until the next scheduled service, which will be a LONG time, specially for the tranny and diff

As far as the "service light" mine has said a couple times at startup (i dont think everytime) up on the idrive screen "service due" is that all it does? I dont see anything on the main screen inbetween the gauges. I'm right at about 800miles.
