Just got a 2013 V... thinking of doing the maintenance myself, in this case the first 500 mile service. By doing this myself, does it affect the warranty at all? It cost about $250 at the dealer. The service guy said that $250 might seem a lot, but if something goes wrong with the engine after I "DIY" the oil change, then there might problems with the warranty.
Has anyone done this on their own? Thanks in advance.
Don't believe the lie. It will not void your warranty if you do it yourself. The 500/600 mile service is a basic tighten to spec, change the oil, top off where needed, and check your adjustables. Save the 250 and keep receipts and start a service log book on all repairs and future work.
