New car maintenance- fluid changes; oil, rear differential, etc.

I know there are a billion and one different posts about changing fluids, I went through this four years ago.. Now I have a new 2013 1LE and and trying to remember what I learned back then about the break in.

At what milage interval do you recommend the first fluid changes?

What is everyone using?

Thanks

I want a 14 Z28 with the 427 motor. That and a new 14 Vette, vert.

As for your fluid changes, who cares, you will be trading up soon, ha.

Just make sure you keep the garage door closed all winter. Don't want don't stray salt dust particles getting on it.

You could check the manual. It says how early you should change it.

If however you don't want to;
- at 500 miles change the oil.
- at 1,500 change the oil again and the rear diff fluid.
- after this follow the normal change interval. Everyone changes their oil at different times but the trans fluid and rear diff should be changed every 25k if you drive hard.
