Last time I had my Tibby in for an oil change, my dealer said that I needed to pay $150 for a 15,000 mi. maintenance checkup or my warranty would be void. Is this a load of **** or can my warranty be voided?

you can do your maintenance anywhere. Doesn't have to be at a Hyundai service department. Keep your receipts and just make sure they do what your service book says to do.

It is a load of sh!t.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

You can even do the work yourself if you want.

Next time they tell you that tell them you want to see where it is written down by Hyundai Motor that all service work must be done by the dealership. When they can not produce that tell them that you want what they told you in writing. Then take their sorry asses to court.

I advise my customers to do their service elsewhere if they want to save money. I don't get paid for service work so what the hell do I care.

15,000 MINOR SERVICE
all that is a Oil and Filter change, set tire pressure, tire rotation and lube the chassis(bushigs, CV boots and any moving parts with rubber)

30,000 is the MAJOR service which you will probably want to get it done but not by a dealer
_oil and filter change, coolant, trans fluid(a/t only)lube chassis, rotate tire, spark plugs, a a valve job(not applicable for Beta Engines) and that's basically it

they INSPECT all other stuff but they don't do that ****, they get more money by doing more work so they'll just do whatever is neccesary...i know cuz i worked at a car dealer....

In the manual they suggest changing the fuel filter at 30K as well. That can be a NOT fun experience. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

3,000; 7,500; 15,000; 22,500; and 30,000; and so on are the recommended intervals, according to a guide I got from my dealership.

I use to do all my own maintance on my old car myself. (The car was 16 years old...No warranty issues). With this new one, now that the warranty is pretty strict on what you can do, I usually bring my car in. I mean, I know I paid $140 for a tire rotation and lube job. But buy bringing it in, its PROOF that I did the recommended service. It may save me money and heartache down the line if warranty issues errupt I keep all my reciepts of service. My dealership has been very good to me and hasn't given me trouble at all with warranty issues. Why start now?

I am not going risk problems because I am cheap.

I brought this up on another thread a few months ago, but it is worth repeating:

60K miles: Replace the cam (timing) belt. It is around a $400 job, but if it breaks, you'll need a new head.
