My 2020 VN is at 4300 miles. So far, so good.

I am not your handy car guy by any stretch of the imagination. The plan, for now, is to go a dealer for all service and maintenance, including oil changes.


Here's the point of confusion. When I go to myhyundai.com, which monitors the car via Bluelink, the first recommended maintenance isn't due yet. It says to come in at 6000. But when I go to the maintenance schedule table on the same site, and it says to come in at 3000, and says "Severe conditions".

I'm inclined to believe I'm OK to go with the Bluelink-tied recommendation at 6000k.

The main reason I ask is that the car hasn't been seen by a mechanic since I got it. And I don't want to make a mistake, especially with regard to oil changes.

Anyway, am I OK to wait until 6k for the oil change, and service in general?

Thanks,
- Joe

The owner's manual defines severe driving. It's not what you'd think either, so find the oil change section of your owner's manual and see if you fall in to that category

Lots of different opinions on this but personally I would do it now. The oil that's in there is already down to a 0w-20 viscosity and has increased wear metals in it.

Not the end of the world if you don't though.

It won't recommend maintenance until your nearer 5K. Take it in and have them change it now. Always change the breakin oil at around 600 miles and 1200, then 3K-5K there after. You have a synthetic blend oil in the crankcase now. You have to ask for fully synthetic from the dealer or they will put in a synthetic blend.
