i received a service notification at around 6 months / 4000kms, both in-car and by email from Genesis. very confusing. i could have gone in for the free service, but then the 12 month service would have been on me. Genesis service is based on 1 year or 10k kms. instead, i just took care of an oil change myself. i called and spoke to two dealers and my GXM to confirm actual complimentary services are NOT 6 months (unless at 10k kms) and that something was haywire in the system.
i went by a local dealer and they said the standard synthetic oil change service would run ~$180 for 0W30. oil alone was $100. the annual Genesis service is valued much higher due to other inspections, servicing and the whole Genesis rig-a-ma-roll. my cost was $70 all-in for 5w40 Euro blend (meeting the various OE specs) and OEM filter/washer, including $30 labor to a trusted shop who then takes care of oil disposal, etc. i couldn't find the Shell Helix OE oil, so Penn Plat Ultra made the cut. it was difficult to find an oil which met the exacting specifications.
