"Free" maintenance question

Not sure does someone ask this before, but I can't seem to find the answer. So, I ask it here.

the so call "Free" maintenance, what does it include?

I know oil and filter only.
What about:
Coolant?
Brake Fruild
Power Streeling Fruild?
Brake pad and rotor?

I own the car and i will keep it for long time , so I want to make sure I take a good care of it.
Only thing is, no one seem to know how often should I change oil and filter. And the Life Fill ATF is still a big question mark.

Confuse...confuse..confuse....

Gas and Tires are not covered, pretty much everything else is. The catch is that the CAR had to think it needs a change or service, not you.

Confuse...confuse..confuse....

Oil + Filter
Inspection Services (30k, 60k, etc.)
Brake Pads and Rotors
Brake Fluid Flush
Coolant Flush on applicable models... new models have "lifetime" coolant
Tranny flush if called for on your car before 50k
Spark Plugs at 100k if you buy the 100k upgrade
Drive Belts
Clutch (if worn from normal use and does not show signs of abuse)

Not covered:
Fluid top-offs when not part of a normal maintenance visit
Alignment after 2000 miles
Tires
Gas

'Youngtechman' I would suggest you double check woth your dealer or call any service dept in the Toronto area. I read somewhere in another thread that the free maintenance items listed above might only apply in the USA and not Canada. I'd be happy if 'Sarafil' is right but I'm not so sure.

Oops... my fault, didn't notice he was in Canada. My list applies to the US program.

For Canada, the full maintenance warranty DOES NOT cover:

- brake pads and rotors
- engine belts
- wiper blades
- clutch components
- tires/rims

pretty much everything else is as long as it is scheduled through the service reminder of your car.

Dude I know this is off topic but I know the e90 falls way short of the Evo VIII you had.....I drove my brothers sti ... those things re define physics.... its rediculous.... Turbo and Computerized all wheel drive make all the difference in the world. hey did you have issues stalling like the FQ400?

Later
