Service Due Alert

Post by Rafael » Wed Jul 06, 2016 5:43 pm

My DS, first registered in November 2015 has covered 8910 miles.
A few days ago, on the InControl App, a Service Due Alert message appeared advising that my car is due for a service.
This coincided with an occasional message (on first start up of the day) saying that the oil level is low. This message did not stay, but disappeared once the tyre setting message had been displayed. I checked the oil level on the dipstick and it is showing full.
I spoke to my dealer who says that maybe due to the type of driving I have been doing (!!) the car needs an oil and filter change.
Anybody else had a similar experience?

No way :shock:

Never heard of this and this will soon use up your service plan if you have it or increase your service costs if you don't :(

Minis tell you when service is expected by date and miles - it also shows brakes etc - does the DS have this in menu - I will need to check :?

From Handbook do any of these apply :?
ARDUOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS

When a vehicle is operated in extremely arduous conditions, more frequent attention must be paid to servicing requirements.

Arduous driving conditions include:

1. Driving in dusty and/or sandy conditions.

1. Driving on rough and/or muddy roads.

3. Frequent wading.

4. Frequent driving at high speeds in high ambient temperatures above 50ºC.

5. Frequent driving in severe cold weather below -40ºC.

6. Frequent driving in mountainous conditions.

7. Frequent trailer towing.

8. Driving in areas using road salt or other corrosive materials on the driving surface.

Contact a retailer/authorised repairer for advice.

Majority of mileage has been done on motorways/A roads, although there are some short urban journeys as well.
I don't think any of my motoring can be described as arduous.
I recall others have said that the Service Due Alert does appear much earlier than is really necessary.
Knowing if the car also asks for a service will help.

8 months into a 2 year service interval is more than just early :shock:

I have had the same issue, alert message appeared at 10,000 miles. Service department believe that service interval setting has not been updated for 2.0L engine and will reset the system when the car goes in for work next week.

Not had the Service warning, but have had several instances of Oil Level Critically Low on start up. Disappears with Tyre Pressure message. Oil check showed it up to the full mark. Only done 5.9k since Sept, so you wouldn't expect anything different.

Just wondering if there is a sensor fault (bad batch maybe). Anyone else suffering this 'Feature'?

That's identical to mine.
Have you contacted your dealer?
