You can't go wrong following the factory service intervals. The engineers have had many years to determine what should and should not be done.

That said, I always follow the Severe Maintenance schedule. It's surprising how much city driving I do, which is hard on a vehicle.

My dealership's fuel injector service consists of adding a bottle of Chevron Techron Complete Fuel System Cleaner, which you can get at WalMart for under $10. It's the black bottle. Works well.

About flushes, my mechanics say to never flush a transmission as the cleaner is a harsh chemical that can damage seals. Follow Kia's recommendation to change, not flush, the transmission fluid.

Some dealerships are more aggressive at upselling than others. If you have the choice, find a more reasonable dealership and spend your money there.
