Hey all! Just brought home my new 2022 RS. So far I love it. My only complaint is that there is the tiniest Little Rock chip in the front bumper area. The dealership said they will take care of it and have it painted, so I am not too worried, but should I have it touched up until they can get it in? It will be a month before their body shop can paint it.
My other question is, first oil change? Was planning on doing it at 500 miles.
This is my first brand new car ever, so it’s gonna need to last!

Welcome! Very nice car, might be one of the first 2022's on here!

I wouldn't bother touching it up if the body shop is going to take care of it. Might end up making it more difficult for them.

As for oil change, I just booked my first one at about 5500 miles.

Good idea to let them handle it. It’s literally smaller than a piece of rice.
I am gonna have some graphics added to it at the end of the month. There is a shop that will do some similar to the below.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new 2022 Trailblazer! I wouldn't worry about the paint if they already know about the problem and are going to fix it. The first recommended oil change is at 7500, but I wouldn't wait that long since it's the break in oil which has alot of metal particles floating around in it. I did my first oil change at 3600 miles and it was very black! 3000 would be a good mileage for the first oil change and then use you oil life monitor after that. I would change it when you get to 20%, but not any lower than 10%.

Congrats on the new purchase! Just picked up the same white/black RS yesterday, except 2021 -- Although to my surprise, mine came with 18 hail dents all over the body lol My dealer is also taking care of the repair, but what a pain! Either way, don't touch it up yourself, let them handle it. I also have to wait 2-3 weeks before they can take mine in but they did mention that they will fix any rock chips or scratches that occur between now and when I bring it in. Hopefully, that's standard practice and they'll do the same for you.

So far the dealership has been awesome. Hopefully that continues!

Congrats, car looks great.

I personally did my first oil change after 1000, then a second at 3500 (I don’t drive a ton so there was also some months between that). I’m following the oil life monitor from now on that I’m confident that the engine is done shedding metal bits like crazy at this point.

Nice ride, and color (mine is white too) I change and have always changed my cars oil every 3k miles regardless of whether synthetic or not. I know newer cars nowadays are okay to go longer between oil changes, but I'm old fashioned, and all my cars that have higher mileage still have clean oil and never black.
