Your owner's manual should suggest one of two maintenance schedules: 6,000 for severe conditions (extreme heat, extreme cold, etc.) or 12,000 for normal conditions. I suppose this 1,000 mile check recommended by BlueLink is just an introductory checkup where nothing would be done unless something was found and then at no charge, hopefully.
^That's incorrect at least for the N..I just brought mine in at 5k(I had checked oil few times prior) as I had a free one good till end of June- whatever I figured 1st one 1k miles early all good. According to service mgr I was 2k late! Yeah even though I don't do many short trips, deal with stop and go traffic, or extreme heat and this car will be garaged the majority of the winter- definitely when there's weather- evidently Hyundai has predetermined my area to as 'severe' and that's what dealer said I should follow at least in case I have a powertrain issue/claim down the road to not give Hyundai a possible out. To me, esp with today's oils- N using full synthetic to boot this is madness and I'm in full out refusal mode as I see it as nothing more than a cash grab. So yeah 6k normal 3k severe and Hyundai gets to determine what my conditions are- funny dealer didn't mention this at time of purchase..what the what!
As for OP question up to you- needed no if you want the added assurance- can't hurt!
