I feel the same way. The savings in not using gas at the pump @ now ~$2.80/Gal is worth the few $/month the electric is costing.

Hi all! I'm new to ED..... just recently purchased a used 2015 in seemingly great condition. Just got the message that the main service is due and it's going to MB of Laguna. I can't get an answer as to what's involved with this service and what the cost will be. The warranty is up this coming August. Can anyone please advise as to what I can expect. Thanks!

In the stickies at the top of this subforum is a list of what service is required at the various intervals. Almost all of it is "inspect this" and "look at that" - it is a really easy car to DIY.
