Believe what you want, but there is a reason why you avoided your dealership and why you still will not go there for work on your car. Your own actions keeps water in my theory bucket. :D

What Okie said. I would even consider skipping the engine air filter if you inspect it and it doesn't look bad. Where I live, I usually can go two years between those changes. I've never had a car...

Depends on the roads you drive, how often you like to hit curbs, etc. If you aren't noticing any significant pulling or uneven tire wear, probably wouldn't worry about it. I believe I do one on...

Welcome to the computer age. They KNOW if you bought the car from them or not. Keep on kidding yourself if you want - many car 'luvers' like to do that. I'm just giving you my honest opinion. Ask...

Very true in theory. In reality, historically speaking, dealerships are less likely to be 'friendly' to people who bring them work when they purchased their car from another dealership. I guess it...

I've taken my car to Iffy Lube in the past and not have any trouble. That said, I would go to them as a last resort. They are the least likely to care about doing the job right. If you trust your...

Yes, I'm in the same boat. But I'm going to stick with a compact or subcompact car. 3 MPG over the course of 5 or more years adds up. From what I've read here, it is not a good city car, but does...

Possible Translations:
1) Some people just don't know how to drive.
2) The EPA will never admit their past sins and will stand by their ratings.
3) ?

Post pictures of the tire tread and we can give you a better idea if it is time. Have you tried the penny test?

It is not unusual for new cars to have 'cheap' tires on them that wear quickly. ...

My car (2002 SL2) was purchased under similar circumstances, but they didn't tell me that they were doing this. It had over 300 miles on it when I purchased it 'new'. I mentioned it to my sales...

I would venture to guess that over 90% of Americans drive over the speed limit, with no regard for safety. Somebody adjusts their headrest so that they are more comfortable (and they can't prove...

I personally see no harm in what you have done. Might consider something like this myself. The headrests are SUPPOSE to be adjustable as not everyone is the same height or has the same size head.

I've noticed even on the newer seats at the dealership that the tan seats just seem to show every little stain. I would avoid that color interior if possible.

I'm not in a hurry - that should be pretty obvious. It isn't about saving every penny. Though I admit that I'm more frugal than most and proud of it - it allows me to buy when I'm ready and not...

Thanks for the idea. Whenever I do get a new car, I do plan to get a hitch for it - originally planning to carry bicycles, but now you've given me another idea. With the price of gas the way it is,...

I agree with Connekted, that this Hyundai forum may be one of the nicer fringe benefits of the Hyundai.

Sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying. This can, of course, lead to premature engine failure.
