Depends on how it was set originally at either the factory or the dealer. Best to go by the manual and set the alarm accordingly. It is not some magic engine analysis that is calling you, just a setting that anyone can change.I was under the impression that the first scheduled service was at 10,000 Km or 12 months. My G70 is about 7 months old and just over 8000 Km so not close to either distance or duration of scheduled service. Yet I started to get this notification on the dash when I start the car.
Based on the amount of driving that I driving that I do I'll probably still be under 9000 Km in 29 days.
Has anyone else seen this?

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.
