How many miles on your car? First service is at ~1,200 miles.

I suspect it said service IN 600 miles...which makes more sense.

If that is the case...

Then follow those instructions, and take the car to the dealership at that time.

I had the same at like 300 miles, but took it in and they will perform your 1200 mi at that time, but I wanted to break it in more and just wait till you are a lot closer to 1200 mi mark.
