Same here - 2012 SEL Hatchback, Job 2 build. Got it with 54 miles on it (dealer had to go get it while I waited). DCT, but no MFT. 16,500 miles now and problem-free.

Like you, I plan on going to at least 200,000 miles. I did three oil changes before 5000 miles, and now I'm on a 5000 mile "The Works" schedule with full synthetic.

I also bought a Waterway Clean Car Club membership, so she gets the exterior and interior cleaned every Tuesday and Friday, plus usually extra car washes here and there.

Excessive? Maybe, but preventative maintenance goes a long way when one plans on keeping a car for a while.
