Rolled over the other day. Bought the car with around 20k on it in Feb 2008. Only thing I've done is tires and replaced the front rotors with EBC and pads with Akebono.
51k tranny flush dealer
76k coolant flush dealer
84k replaced front rotors with EBC and pads with Akebono, bled all 4 wheels and put about 3/4 a pint back in reservoir
99k power steering fluid, Denso Iridium Spark plugs, PCV Valve, drain and fill tranny, radiator, Seafoam intake and Seafoam in gas tank.
I've been using Mobil 1 5W20 since around 54k and I have not had to add any oil. Engine is dry, tranny is smooth.
Maybe others can post who are in this 100k plus club what problems if any they've had and what major maintenance they have performed on their Sonata.
|Change your battery if its OEM!|
A battery will usually give you a clear warning before it strands you. My batteries have
averaged ~3.5 years, and I've never once been stranded.
At 3 years old, if a battery starts to crank slowly on a cold morning, change it immediately.
I intend to get a coolant flush at ~50K, tranny flush at ~105K. spark plugs at ~100K.
Serpentine belt and brake pads as needed, probably ~65K. Rotors should last the life of the car.
Surprised my battery is still going strong. They usually only last 3.5-4yr.
I use Hyundai recommended oil, whatever's on sale. I intend to keep the car 8-10 years, and 90-110K miles.
I'm shooting for cost of ownership of ~$1400 per year over 10 years, or ~$1750 over 8 years.
