2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI Service Reminder Malfunction?

I'm the proud new owner of a 2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI. In the Multi Function Display there is a Service Interval display with Miles and Days until service. Both have dashes rather than numbers. When I try to reset them as per the manual on page 20 nothing changes. Shouldn't this have started counting down the day I picked up the car with only 13 miles on it? I now have over 500 miles. I called the dealer and they just repeated what the manual said. Does anyone else have this problem or any suggestions?

Mine finally flipped on at 900 miles. I have suggested to VW that they should amend their user's manual to explain this or, better yet, make it start counting down from the day the first owner drives off the lot.
Nice, I have added this to the VW Golf wagon/ VW Jetta sportwagen TDI buying guide under stuff to know. I don't know if the new Golf or Jetta sedan/hatch do it either.

Well it must be something your cars in the US have set as I've said I didn't check mine straight away after the service but when I checked 2 days after the service 30 miles it was showing the next service interval.
I live in Sweden and my car is the same.
