Well, did you hear anything yet?

These Hyundais are so well known for blowing motors. My dealership told me they usually don't even ask questions, they just replace them. They check for sludge first, and if no sludge, no questions asked. You'll probably be fine unless you have a terrible service department in your dealership that tries to rip you off. I talked to a couple of the service techs, they said they've even covered tuned and modded cars. It's a known issue and most of the time they aren't giving people a hard time.

Yeah, they're full of sh!t haha. 12-15k for a 1.8l Hyundai motor? haha. The entire car only cost a little more than that when it was NEW!
