I crossed 6700 miles last night and got the "schedule service soon" reminder. Since the first service is 7500 miles, should I really be getting the reminder over250 miles before?

Yes because Volvo will do the 7500 mile service anywheres from +/- 1500miles of the 7500mile mark.

Thanks for the information. When I called the dealer I was told +/- 500.

The manuals say +/- 1500 mark for the Safe and Secure program. But my dealer told me they were getting pressure from VCNA to get them in +/- 500 miles. Guess lots of people are putting it off too long. I've stayed within +200 miles for each service call so far. . .

+/-200 might be difficult for me but I'd rather be -500/+0.

That is interesting though that VCNA is pushing for 500. Sounds more like cost/effecintly thing, getting pushing a bit more life outta the replaceables. Ill have to chat up my dealer, i prefer to get it done as early as possible though I have switched over to the synthetic oil.

Any retailer personnel can claim whatever. The official policy is +/- 1,500 miles from the recommended interval.

Was told by service rep that they were getting pressure to get them in as close to the marks as possible. I called for my 15,000 service when I was at 15,175 and the service rep was all like: "how soon can you get in here?!?"

That could just be one of those "Key Performance Indicators" MBAs like to implement.
