Default Scion Service Boost

Other than a tiny pamphlet, I haven't receive much detail on Scion's service boost. I don't do much driving on my Scion IQ other than a mile to and from work each day. I've had my IQ now for 6 months and only have 800 miles on it. I know the Service Boost plan is good for two years. But I'm told that you get the first service at 5,000 miles and the second at 10,000. And the first one doesn't include an oil change. Just a touch up on fluids and perhaps tire rotation. Does the next one at 10,000 miles include an oil change? So basically, I'm only get one free oil change from the mighty Service Boost two year plan? Is this correct? The pamphlet and any online details are sketchy and unclear. Anybody? Anyone?

Hi Mkn, the service boost covers normal factory-recommended maintenance services up to 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. For specific details please visit Scion's website. Additionally, for the iQ, Scion recommends the engine oil be replaced every 10,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. Thanks for your post. -Alejandro

I'm not a fan of waiting 10,000 miles to change my oil. I changed the oil and filter myself at 5,000 miles then took the iQ to the dealer for the 10,000 mile inspection and they changed the oil and filter. I again changed my oil and filter at 15,000 miles. When I took the iQ to the dealer for my 20,000 mile inspection and service I had missed the two year mark by a month. Be sure to take your iQ in for the second oil change before your two years are up or you will have to pay for the second oil change.

Extended warranties and service plans that you have to pay for are rip offs, all of them!

Too broad a statement. Sometimes their worth it, depending on your driving habits and the environment.

I owned a sports car in Arizona. The high temperature and grit filled roads tore the crap outta that engine. I actually made out with the service plan, as the repairs and parts replacement was ridiculous. Eventually I had to let the car go, because the manufacturer refused to extend my plan... they quickly realized I was a profit loss.
