Me too! I’m trying to figure out how to change it from 12k to 6k and also how to reset it post service.

Just wait till it tells you to go in for a service.
It has multiple computers and sensors that monitor everything for you. No need to change it

Why.
Oil and engine technology has come a long way. No need to waste money. Unless your driving in hash climate conditions?
These engines have had more testing done to them then you could ever imagine.

Old habits I guess. Over my 49 years of owning 50+ cars, I’ve always tried to adhere to 3k mile oil and filter changes. That applies to the every car from the Seltos, back to my first ride, a 1966 VW bug. And lots of fun ones in between, including an Audi TT, Triumph TR6, Porsche Boxster S, Jaguar XK8.

My nearest Kia dealer is an hour away!
Then I would wait until you want to change the oil and take it in and have them set it at that time. Otherwise, you can buy a scan tool with the ability to change the service interval. I have a iCarsoft CR Pro and it can change the service interval on Kias.

This is how I am able to get to changing the Service Interval. Click on Setup - then Vehicle - then Cluster, you should see an option for service interval, click on that and you should be able to set it to whatever you want it to be.

I just called my dealership and the Service Advisor told me it's something they have to do. He said that KIA had that bright idea-- that being said, I've seen videos of people doing it in a Seltos??
There might be a setting they can enable via their tablet that allows us to change it, he wasn't sure when I asked. But I live an hour away from the dealership! It's easier for me to take my car somewhere closer to do the service- and I don't have the time to make the trip every time it needs serviced. I really hope there is a way to change it from our end....

I’m gonna ask this weekend. I’m not taking my car in every 6000 miles for them to do it. That’s insane. I’ll post if I get an answer.
