Ummm, I guess I got screwed! I was offered a 5 year/55k maintenance for $720 but was not informed that you only need to change oil for every 7.5k or when the maintenance reminder shows up. Do you think I can cancel the service plan and get a refund? I have not used anything yet. I guess I'm pissed in a way that dealers will offer such service plans when the cost is way more than what it will actually cost you without it. When it was offered to me, I initially thought it made sense because they presented it like "okay, if you change your oil every 3.5k miles, in 55k miles, you would've gone in for about 15 oil changes. $30 average oil change will cost you $450 plus your every 7.5k interval maintenance." How am I supposed to know that the car I'm buying only needs an oil change every 10k miles? =(
