    Nice list. A little specific to your company's policies, but until we can develop a list based off the official GM list, I am stickying this.

    After a small bit of Googling for a maintainence schedule for my Saturn, I came across this link. It appears it is based off the official manufacturers maintainence schedules and covers most all vehicles.

    EDIT: I also renamed the thread title to fix spelling and make it a little easier to find.
