The service interval indicator is also time related as well as mileage.
If the indicator was not reset when the car left the dealers when brand new, the date would have been when it left the factory. That is why it appears as tho the car needs a service 2 months early. It also gives you a warning that the "service is nearly due" which is why you have had the replace oil soon message.

As long as you get the car serviced within 12mths of your delivery or the stated mileage ( there is usually a tolerance of 500 miles or 30days) the warranty will still be valid.
Your Renault dealer will then reset the service indicator - so then in 11mths time you will get the replace oil soon message, unless of course you do a high mileage and you will get that message when you hit the required message.

Shop around main dealers for service prices, but expect to pay around 200.
