    Default Hyunditech - 30,000 mile Check-up

    So my dealer wants $500 for the 30K service!! The service includes an Oil
    Change, Air Filter, Fuel Air Filter and Coolant Flush but it DOES NOT
    include the supposed required Transmission Flush, which is an extra $150.

    The Hyundai web site and manuel does say a Transmission Flush now but come
    on at 30K?

    This whoile warranty thing seems to be a scam to me. They threaten that
    if you do not do all this then Hyundai will void your warranty.

    What's the scoop Hyundaitech, what REALLY needs to be done at 30K?

    Inquired about the 30 k yesterday at our dealers. Charging 395.00 and
    was described by the service manager as the most expensive scheduled
    dealer service the car will have. Not exactly sure about all the
    specifics that are covered but Hyundai has two levels of service
    inspections and the 30 k involves both levels. ................Doc

    Hey Bob,

    Look closely. Somewhere in the manuel and in the web site it says to
    repalce the Transmission fluid too but it is not easily found. that is
    the issue I keep running into. Each dealer has their own idea of what
    needs to be done, the manuel says something else and the web site says
    somethign else too.

    Bob's right, it'd help me to know the year and model of your car. If it's
    fairly new, here's what your owner's manual probably says you need to do:

    -- Oil change
    -- Tire rotation
    -- Air filter
    -- Inspect transmission fluid and change if necessary.
    -- Replace coolant (for years 2005 and older).
    -- Various inspections

    If you're transmission fluid isn't yucky (and your car is newer than
    1999,
    I'd say draining and filling (not flushing) every 30k should be fine.
    Technically, the manual indicates 105k is the interval for normal
    driving,
    but I'd feel much better with a 30k interval if it were my car. Heck, on
    my 1992 Taurus, I'm changing the fluid and filter every 15k just to see
    if
    it'll improve this horrible transmission's life span.

    Coolant should really only need to be changed based on time. For 2005
    and
    older, it's required every 2 years. For 2006 and newer, the first change
    is at 5 years, and then every two years after that.

    I guess my other question is they claim if I do not do the Transmission
    then my warranty is void if something goes wrong.

    I had my 30K service done last week on my 2005 Santa Fe 3.5L

    My total was $491 (including a $25 coupon discount) and included changing
    the tranny and differential fluid.

    The list of stuff they did was pretty long (and labor intensive) and
    included cleaning and regapping the plugs.

    Really. Void if you don't flush your transmission at 30k. Your dealer is
    lying to you. Check your owner's manual. You'll see that if you don't
    fall into the harsh driving categories they specify, your transmission
    service is not required until 105k (unless one of the 30k inspections
    shows that the fluid is in poor condition and in need of replacement).

    One of the additional items listed in your manual to be done at 30k (I
    believe) is to replace the canister air filter. It's inside the left rear
    fender well by the fuel filler neck. If this filter clogs, it could turn
    on your check engine lamp and make it difficult to fuel the vehicle, but
    nothing serious would result. I think the reason it's included is so that
    Hyundai is covered in the event a problem develops due to failure to
    replace the filter.

    Cleaning and regapping? I would hope they would just replace them if they
    went through the trouble of pulling them out. Probably cheaper than paying
    labor for "cleaning."

    Considering most plugs go 100,000 miles today, that is truly a waste of
    money

    I agree but paying a dealer to remove, clean and reinstall plugs is not
    going to be any less expensive than having them put new ones in. If you ever
    pulled the plugs on my 95 Ranger (4 cyl) you can bet new ones are going in.
