Can some UK owners report back on what their service interval is set to?
I am led to believe the first inspection service is at 2 years unlimited mileage and thereafter annually or 10K miles, but this might just be for european cars.
Mine is set to 1 year 10K miles which sounds wrong.
139727

I emailed the dealer, no response after waiting a week.

I had thought it was every 2 years, but even the current ID.3 brochure is confusing:

Many cars are sold with 'Protect and care' which bundles servicing anyway.

Mine is set to 20k miles to the first inspection, thereafter I’d expect it to be every 20k miles.

There will likely be a brake fluid change scheduled somewhere along the line as well.

It is 2 years but Ive read 18000 miles for the first service but mine just shows the days left 'till the service.
The e-Golf is 2 years or 20k then yearly or 20k iirc.
Brake fluid change is 3 years for the first change on the Golf then every two years. I expect the ID range will be the same as it's time based not miles but I haven't read that anywhere.

Thanks, nobody has said it should be 1 year, 10K miles like mine. Which means mine was totally incorrect, perhaps deliberately set to claw back some discount....
Whether they will change it, without resistance? I wonder what excuse they will give…

If it's like the Golf or is set by the dealer at pdi and they probably haven't even looked at the service intervals. There were a few posts about it when we bought our e-Golf 3 years ago age since of the dealerships still assume its the same as an ice.

Yes, we had the same with our eGolfs & they will also try to charge you the price of a full ICE service if they can get away with it...
