So the first service is supposedly at 15,000 miles, right? But right now I only have about 10,000 on my 11 month old Metris, and it is telling me I need service in a month. So I assume it is programmed to call for service at least once a year? Anybody else notice this, or does everyone else drive more miles than me?

7,000 miles regardless of the amount of time here.....been doing that for 10+ years on my fleet of several MB's of various ages with 0 issues.

I only cover about 7-8k a year in my Metris currently.

You will be fine. Unless you are doing a lot of short trips, i would go a year and half or 15,000 miles. These vans hold 2 gallons of oil, no need to change any sooner.

For reference, my 2005 BMW 530 is at 355,000 miles with 15k oil changes and I see no reason it won't last 1/2 million miles like my last car did at 15k oil changes.
