What are the required service check mileage points?

I've looked at the regular manual, service manual and still cannot get a simple list of when service or even oil change is required. I had the famous 1200 mi of course, and then 15 (or 18K?) check and oil change and now I'm at 22K miles with the service light on---even the dealer can't find a straight answer. Does anyone know?

It's conditioned based, not necessarily mileage based.

I'm curious about this too. Surely some things (like plugs and air filter) do not show up in the CBS, but are recommended at some certain interval?

Oil service is condition based, if you don't do many miles its 2 years, the micro filter is also changed at 2 years. Mine is coming up to 2 years old and i've got to have the oil service and brake fluid changed.

You can actually get one oil change per year, regardless of mileage. But you need to ask for it ('low mileage oil change'). Hope this helps.
