Did Maintenance I and Maintenance II go away?
I was just at the Chevy dealership today for Maintenance II. When I got in there they told me what I really needed was a 50,000 mile service (mileage was 52K), which included an engine air filter check, a transmission flush, Fireball Fuel Injector cleaner, and a vehicle report card. So that's what I did.
While I was in there, I also picked up a brochure that described maintenance services. Nowhere in there did it mention the Maintenance I and Maintenance II packages that my owner's manual talks about. Instead, it listed various maintenance packages at differing mileage points. Oil changes were considered the 5,000 mile service and that varied from dino oil to DEXOS to full synthetic with or without Fireball Fuel Injector cleaner. And for the 60K miles service, they recommended a Fuel Induction Cleaning and a Brake Fluid service exchange. I had the Fuel Induction service done at 30K miles and was planning on doing it again at 60K anyway, but I never heard of--and the owner's manual doesn't mention--Brake Fluid Exchange. And I thought the coolant was good for 100K or 5 years (they recommend it changed at the 75K service).
So those of you who have 2010, 2011, 2012 Traverses (mine is an 09), does your owner's manual still recommend M1 and M2 or Brake Fluid Exchange? And would you follow the advice of the dealership or follow the owner's manual? Obviously the dealership has a leg up since they service these vehicles everyday but I sometimes wonder.
