You can go into settings and change both the miles and months before the next maintenance reminder.Since three days when starting the car there is a new "service message" as per picture below popping up for a couple of seconds.

Problem is.. the car should not even be close to service due date as per
- KIA's maintanance schedule
- the vehicles own maintenance app on large screen
- KIA connect app
...neither by mileage driven nor by elapsed time.
Car was bought 2/23
As per Kia 1st service is due after max. 12 month or 8,000 miles... putting the 1st service at 2/24 / 8,000 miles; which ever of milestones is reached first.
new dashboard message would suggest the first service to be due after 3000 miles. I have driven 2099 miles and the pop-up advises maintanance to be performed in 911 miles = 3,000 miles total. The left 59 days would be close to 6 month in service...
and as per car's onboard maintanace app the service is due in 5901 miles putting the first service at the correct 8,000 miles and Feb 2024 (12 month)

Where is the incorrect dashboard message coming from and how do i get rid of it 😱
My Kia dealer set that 1st maintenance reminder for well before the manual says it should happen - common dealer "trick"
Try a "reset" in the maintenance reminder and see if the light goes out. It is possible that something else triggered that symbol but it should not occur that soon.
Maybe take it back to the dealer and ask, "what is going on here?"
