SoI got the car mid Aug. have about 2000 miles on it and I just got an email that says: It may be time for maintenance. Then below that it says: The service we recommend:
CHECK ENGINE, ELECTRONICS AND BATTERY PACK COOLANT
CHECK THE SEALANT AND COMPRESSOR KIT EXPIRATION


I thought the 1st service was at 7500 for tires or when Oil Life was low (I'm at 88%)? Is this just pre-emptive form my dealer? Or is this email generated because of something my car is sensing? The recommended service seems very specific.

All of that you can do yourself. (you should be checking your coolant levels anyway, and the sealant expiry is printed on the can)
It's either dealer prompting, or automated onstar email.

Your dealer must send out the same emails my dealer sends (Palm Chevy, Ocala, FL)! I've received 2 now and I have less than 4000 miles on my 2017 PREMIER.

I got the same email about a week after I had been in for a free oil change and tire rotation. It is an automated fishing email. Besides, it is very easy for you to check the coolant levels and read the sealant label yourself and decide if they need service.

Just review and follow the maintenance schedule in your owner's manual, regardless of dealer service solicitations received in the mail via email, or in person. The owner's manual is your guide to what needs doing and when. And yes, much can be done by you.
