DS3 1.6 E-HDI (2015) Service Schedule?

Post by KarlF »

Hi

Does anyone have a detailed service schedule for a 2015 DS3 1.6 E-HDI? The car was bought used and there's nothing in the documentation about the service intervals. I've searched online and found mention of the oil/filter interval being 12,500 miles (which seems high to me) but nothing about other jobs like brake fluid, coolant, etc.

We want to make sure the car is looked after properly, but that's difficult when the service details aren't in the handbook!

Thanks

Karl

Excellent, thank you - that's exactly what we need.

Am I right that "Services: Systematic Operations" is the engine oil & filter change, plus general inspections?

We'll definitely change the oil & filter a lot sooner than every 16,000 miles - that seems way too infrequent given what I've read about turbo failure due to dirty/thickened oil!

Sort of... The systematic operations are those determined for each specific service interval. So there will be different operations / checks for both 'minor' and 'major' services as well as those time-specific additional operations listed above.

Just make sure you use the correct oil (which I have also listed above for you) as it must meet the specifications listed and be of the correct grade for the country.
