When I met the Service Manager (pre-sale) he mentioned that they offer a free oil change at 3000 miles. He said it gives them a chance to check everything under the vehicle, and make sure there's no problems. All it costs the customer is about an hour of their time. Sounds like a good idea to me, and I plan to take them up on it (got just over 1000mi now).
I'm trying to figure out what your problem is, or if you're just trying to start a flame war here.
The fact is, my dealer does not offer a free change at 3,000 miles. In fact, I've never seen that offered by a Kia dealer. If it's free, by all means someone should go get it done.
For the rest of us, we have to decide who to believe when it come to oil change intervals. It doesn't take a "yutz" to realize that Kia of America has the most to lose by publishing 7,500 mile service intervals. If it was dangerous for the engine to run that long, it is THEM not the dealer who is responsible for replacing the engines during the 10/100 warranty.
There's plenty of bickering all over the internet about oil change intervals, and I'm not going to get into another fight here. Just be smart and do right by yourself. If you believe your dealer, go in every 3,000 miles. If you believe Kia, go in every 7,500.
