I have 2017 Cayman that I purchased 2/19 with 1900 miles from a dealer. The dealer serviced the car (oil change) just before I took delivery. I will be performing the required service myself and I know oil to be changed ever 10k/1 year and brake fluid flushed every 20k/2 years.

I have 7600 miles on the car and the service display says

Service interval 1....
Inspection in 14300 miles
2/2021

Why doesn’t it tell me to change oil in 1 year (2/20)? Doesn’t it monitor oil?

Since the car is a 2017, the 2 years for brake fluid flush should be due sometime in 2019, not 2/2021.

what am I missing?

I'm not sure the car, itself, has anything to do with those warnings. I think it is set by the service department, or the device some DIY folks buy that lets them reset the oil change reminder. It looks from the date like your service department may have changed the brake fluid along with the oil before releasing the car to you. Also, I'm betting, that your oil change warning won't come until January. My car was delivered Dec. 20, 2018 and I didn't get the oil change warning until about two weeks ago.

Thanks! That’s very helpful.
Still a bit confused why the display says “Service interval 1”, rather than 2.

I think this is correct, I get warnings for oil change every 5k mi. and the service warning every 10k mi.

Have you tried 'scrolling down' to see if there is another entry below Service Interval 1? I thought the same as you with may car but found the Oil Change listed as Service Interval 2 below the first one. Agree that it would mamre more sense to have the first service first though.
Same here on my car, and I too thought they should have been reversed.

Chris. - That’s it! I didn’t know one could scroll down. When I scroll down I see that service #2 (oil change) is in 4k miles or 2/20. Now it all makes sense.

Thanks.

Nice! Glad you got it sorted. Just seen the spelling mistakes in my original post. Sometimes this forum highlights words when you are typing and suggests the strangest things, or it could have been my fingers while having my morning coffee... :oops:

Just in case you need to reset your next oil change interval after you've performed the oil service, I was able to use this device to get it done:

I was looking for a way to reset the maintenance reminder. Will this reset all maintenance messages not just the oil reminder?

Yes, the service interval in addition to the oil change. Upon receiving the device, I had to download a firmware update for it. I wouldn't say it's the most intuitive device. It took three attempts putting in the current date while resetting the oil change interval before it was retained in the car.
