Re: sevice vehicle soon
Go to a parts supply store, hook up their scanner and read the codes and then go from there.. your only choice may be to go to the dealer. But at least that will give you some idea of why the car is setting a code/codes.

Maybe it's just the oil life is low. You should be able to check it with the Driver Information Center. Could be as simple as an oil change. You didn't say the check engine light came on. CEL usually comes on with codes. Service engine soon is a specific message on the DIC. Scroll through the DIC for information.
Hope this helps.
