    Does the Tesla provide service interval reminders? It's been shortly over 1 year and I have 21,500 miles; with no service reminder yet.

    Curious if I should schedule a service appointment or wait for the car reminder?

    Never seen a service interval reminder. I believe they recommend service every year or 12,500 miles whichever comes first. Since you are closing in on 25k you could just wait a little bit and do your 2 year service, but you should have rotated your tires around the 12,500 mark. You'd think with all the tech they'd have a service reminder, but none exists as far as I can tell (I'm at 30k on the odometer)

    technically speaking there is no maintenance required which is probably why there is no automated reminder.

    According to the chart above you should replace brake fluid every 2 years and coolant every 4 years. I'd say that would fall under required maintenance

    Suggested maintenance. Maintenance Plans

    As far as im concerned, if ignoring these doesn't void my warranty then Tesla doesn't truly consider it required maintenance. That being said ill still rotate my tires and stuff but replacing brake fluid every 2 years seems a bit excessive; especially since no1 does that on an ICE car. And plenty of people here on TMC have gone 25k+ miles before their first maintenance.

    A UK MOT will do 99% of this work so no servicing for my lovely P85!
