Are you referring to the oil? Most quick lube shops recommend every 3,000 miles but if you run a synthetic oil you can take the car a lot farther, 7,000 miles isnt un common between oil changes. Air filter should be checked accordingly. I do mine once a year. A lot of service depends on your driving style. Manual transmission service is about every 30-60k miles while auto transmissions are recommended at about the same. You can check your auto transmission fluid by smelling it and checking the color. If it is dark and smells burnt, have the transmission fluid changed. If it is still bright red and clear and doesn't smell burnt you still have a while.

Coolant flush and timing belt/water pump at 90k. Service other drive belts according to wear and milage on the car. Your car is pretty new so don't stress about a lot of this stuff for now.

Hope this helps.
