    I have a low mile (3600) CS. Got it '04. Have taken it back to the dealer annually for routine service. Is it time for a Major service time dependent or is this more dependent on how many miles the cars has? Car has never been tracked.

    +1. It's far more painful if something goes wrong -- and the CS service isn't even that expensive (compared to the earlier V8's)

    Double check...but i believe you only need the belts done at the 3yr service, which is about $2K as opposed to the "Major" which is every 5 yrs and is about $5k..

    Look up on "Euginios" web site, you will see all that is involved in the 2 different services.

    Good Luck

    I guess the question is what is a major service. I am told that it will cost $5K for the major but I am not sure what that actually includes. I know the belt are part of it.

    I would expect the car to have had belts done at 3 years and the 6250 mile service other services annual in 2005,2006 and 2008 with that mileage.
    Get out and use it more they are a great drive mine has done 13000 miles.

    I did the major service which included belts at the 3 yr/8900 mile mark with yearly fluid changes to date. Next major is 6/2010. Keep it up to'll feel much more at ease when you put your foot in it.

    The really important thing is the belts, they will do a lot of things to the car, but I wonder how important is to do all this things if the car has barely any miles and never tracked.

    Time or mileage. According to FNA scheduled maintenance timing belt replacement is due every 3 yrs. or 30K whichever occurs first.

    what he said

    look here :

    several options available depending on where you're at.....chances are you just need the belt serice if the mileage is low

    BTW : you have not stated your mileage

    Stated mileage is 3600. Sounds like the OP has adhered to the annual services however, mileage is not the only factor in determining required or recommended services.

    belts are cheap as long as you dont go to FBH...!!!!!:) much as i love Jerry now that autogallery service has crashed and burned.

    FOC is the best value/quality in S CA. other than Damian or Eugenio.

    not worth not doing it -- if you blow a strad engine it's 70 bills
