Hi everyone, I just became a member and love this this N community! Great info and help! So I bought my car in March 2020. I linked my blue link to my car and had a scheduled maintenance for 3k for 1st inspection and oil change which is supposed to be covered by the new 3 year 36 free maintenance program that started if you purchased your car in Feb 2020 or later. I dropped my car off and let the service manager know that blue link had notified me of the service, then I get an email that said I owe 68.66 for the Mobile 1 0w 30 and labor. I go to pick it up and let him know it was under the blue link maintenance and had to debate this for a few minutes before he agreed to pay for it. So to let everyone know, based on what he said, your first oil change to be covered and tire rotation is for every 6k. Hope this info helps and i was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this?

I did mine at about 4500 miles. But, I did mine myself. I only go to the dealer in case of a recall. I just trust myself much more than them. lol....

Best regards,

Yes, the complimentary maintenance goes by the "normal" maintenance schedule not the severe schedule, which is 6K miles for the N. What's odd is that the online maintenance info (which is what the complimentary maintenance refers you to) doesn't mention anything about the time interval. So I specifically asked my dealer and he said it was every 6k miles or 6 months which ever comes first. This is a low mileage vehicle for me so I'll hit the 6 month interval before the miles.

Can I assume this means they cannot deny a warranty claim for not following the 3000 mile “severe” oil change interval that some dealerships say can be based on geographic location alone?

Honestly, based on the quality of the Hyundai dealership network that I've both seen and heard about, I wouldn't take my car to them for maintenance. That's easy for me to say though because I have a nice garage and a lot of tools and I'm comfortable climbing under a 3000lb slab of steel.
