I think you need to check your Warranty ? I had not done 600 miles when my first "free" service was done, after 4 months.
I will probably drive only 2000 miles in my first year.
But I remember being told that you must have your car serviced when listed, even if you are not going far.
Could upset your Warranty if you ignore their Rules ?
Ask you Dealer anyway.

If there is is FULL SYNTHETIC in your vehicle now, and I am sure there is, then 6000 should be good. What does your "in car setting" say?

I have had my SX just over a year (may 2020) and am not a high mileage driver, maybe 6-7k per year. I ignore the dealer notices and just take it for a checkup and an oil change every 6 months. Probably overkill, but I am comfortable with that. I did some extra driving this Spring and noticed that once I hit 9k, the car itself told me that it was time for service, so I am assuming that 9k is the recommended interval.

It is whatever your interval is set at. Check it in your dash computer readings
