How many miles till the first REAL service?..
 
ie something beyond oil change and tire rotation. I'm thinking that would be the time that I should take it to the dealer.

I know they do that 20(or whatever) point inspection every time. My take is that's a scam to jack up the labor.

Depends if you think spark plug changing is DIY or dealer work...

I was happy I didn't buy the hemi when I saw they recommend changing the plugs (2/cyl = 16) every 30k miles. ugh.

Pentastar plug change is 50-60k if I remember correctly.

Aside from that, oil and filter, air filter, cabin filter... not much else besides checks and potential other lube points.

Timing chain at over 100k ?

Check the owner's manual.

It's in the shop getting a new HVAC blower motor or I would.

To get the owner's manual (the real one, not the glossy brochure that comes with the car), right-click here and select "save as". The maintenance schedule starts on page 536.
