80,000 miles mark

I have just reached the 80k miles mark. What should be worry about? Its a second hand car so I cant go to the dealer and ask for the regular maintenance nor even know what the first ower did and didint.

But dont get me wrong, i use to do all the regular and easy maintenance by my self (oil filter, cabin air filter, MAF cleaning, body Throttle cleaning)...

I am thinking about changing the tranny fluid, but some say it is avery 30k miles, other 100k miles depending of the uses.I drive 50% in the city.

my MPG is 19.0. I think its OK, Iuse to do a lot of stop/go city driving.

what you think...

I would change the tranny fluid. It's cheap insurance and easy to do yourself. Might want to take a look at the spark plugs and check the gap. I just checked mine at 69k and they are way out of spec. Supposed to be at .44 and they are between .8 and .9.

This and a bad O2 sensor are causing engine misfire.

I assume you have a V6. I average 23.3 mpg in a mixture of 60 hwy/ 40% city.

19 sounds about right for just city w/ stop and go.

Coolant at 5 years or 60K than every other year per the book. I would stop into your Santo Domingo Hyundai Dealer at least once if possible to see if there are any service campaigns/recalls waiting for you? Get an Oil change while there. I wonder if Cuba has a dealership?
