Car Service Intervals for Low Kilometres

Hi John,

Firstly, love your program on Radio 4BC in Brisbane. Very interesting and entertaining. 

I have a 2012 Mazda3, which has only done 7700kms. Obviously I don't want to pay for the "big" services like the 10,000km/20,000km, etc., but Mazda insist that it's the distance driven OR the time that determines which service is due. How could it need major services when it has such low mileage?

Thanks for your help,
