    3K is the standard, to keep Hyundai happy and to avoid a dealership claiming you haven't serviced the car properly just follow the service schedule in the owners manual.

    What's the interval Hyundai specifies in the States? In Canada it's every 6,000kms or roughly 3500miles.

    It's the same in the service manual, 3500 miles... but the dealer still tells you to bring it in every 3000.

    Im pretty sure in the service manual it says every 3000 for "harsh" driving or something of the sort, but every 7000 otherwise...

    I would do the first one now. I did my first @ 1000 miles, next one is my free one from the dealer @ 3000, then I am going to synthetic @ 5000 miles and going to do a 5000 mile oil change interval.
