to be honest they don't do much else than change the oil.. and if they notice anything obvious they will notify u that it will need to be replaced soon. Inspection I and II are the more indepth services..you can find the resource for which they include somewhere on this site
? My mechanic and dealer have always done a filter and oil change and cursory inspection whenever I brought my stuff in for an oil change.
For service... There's a checklist for that on the internet; they follow it to the letter.
- Oil service is Oil, Filter, Microfilter, and bug juice.
- If you just want an oil change, it is just oil and filter.
As stated above, Inspection I and II's are the in depth inspection services. It also depends on what mechanic gets it. When I work on cars at work, I treat it just like it was my BMW. I look over things when doing an oil change and note things if it looks like it could be unsafe.
If there is also a problem found that looks severe, but is not the cause of what the car is in for, I will also note that.

You know that you can buy a $40 gadget that works to reset the oil and inspection lights. There are other cheaper methods that you can do if you search on the DIY sections here or on the internet. Last option that I know is to also buy the code reader that can (dough!!!) read codes, reset oil and inspection lights. This will cost about $138 to $149, but you'll never have to go do the dealer and know what is going on with your car. Oh forgot too, it can reset the check engine light!!
