Hello,

I am about to go in for a 60k mile service on my 2010 Elantra and was hoping to have some idea before I go in what would be absolutely necessary to get done from the recommended maintenance and what I may be able to skip on to save some money. Any insight would be very useful! Thank you!

READ the manual. Don't listen to the "service advisor".

If you are really in DIRE financial shape, just change the oil.

If NOT, then don't skip anything. You might end up paying more later.

Hi and :00000732: Don't mind Easy Rider's use of capital letters, which is the equivalent of yelling on the Internet. :rolleyes:

However, the advice is solid. Preventative maintenance is always the best way to go if you want to get the best life out of your car.

And some people are overly sensitive and create issues where none really exist. :)

ALL CAPS IS YELLING.

An occasional WORD in caps is only for emphasis....like you would do in a normal spoken sentence.

Is it?
I think it is more like pushing the OP to do something what he/she is not used to. Or to simply imply that one easy thing to do is to open the little book and find out yourself.

Did I just take ER's side?


Anyway, let's see...

The question is plain - what is the 60k service, right?

IF (on could say if or if) we told the OP that the service require new harmonic balancer, spark plugs, wires, and coils, fuel filter, transmission flush, new brakes, new tires, and all this crap - would the OP really take it as a good thing and really replace those items?

My point is - ask, trust, but verify.
Open the owners manual, read what must be done at 60k miles and that is the bare minimum.
If the transmission fluid looks bad (smell, color) - change it too. And similar with other extras. Just make sure it is justified...

Honestly, I found Easy Rider's tone extremely rude. He is banned now for his constantly rude behavior all over the forums; this was a collaboration of thoughts from all mods, not just myself.

Hello.

Just spotted that the, not so easy-going, Easy Rider has been asked not to post any more (is that a polite way of saying banned ? :)). I'm not a saint but did have to bite my tongue lots of times when Easy Rider kept popping up in other people's topics and giving the benefit of his extensive advice (and at nine and a half posts per day, there was plenty to choose from).....for example in the engine oil discussion in the i10 section, which, like engine oil, did get a bit heated. And do recall a mod. asking him to take it easy on the language quite soon after his subscription here.

However, my question is, what stops a poster from re-subscribing under a different name? I noted that, apart from his prolific posting here, he was somewhat evident elsewhere in numerous other forums under the same (or very similar), name/s....and was banned from them too for much the same reason.

I'm sure there's an answer but not being very tech savvy I don't understand what it might be.

Thanks.

Could you consider maybe just giving him a warning and bring him back? he was a useful member on the forums.

I did not ban Easy Rider, nor can I bring him back. It was not my singular decision to ban him; it was multiple complaints from multiple mods adding up over time. Easy Rider's comments, both good and bad, were all over the forums. You'll need to speak to Montego about that. I doubt he'll oblige, though.

Wow, items that are much sooner (mileage wise) in the above list are plug/wires, coolant, timing belt/belts, ATF. Must be a dealership "Recommended Service Schedule" not the manufacturers. The rest of the items are only if they have not been done recently.

Feel free to disagree. After his first temp ban, he made efforts to be better, but some were still offput by his strong opinionated tone in every single thread, sometimes inciting arguments with other members, the senior mods and administrator of this forum saw enough negativity and uncooperativeness over time to see to his banning.

You're free to say you don't like it, but it's not going to change the mods' minds.

Now, let's keep this thread on the original topic please.

I went through his old posts and I saw nothing wrong.

I do not think that should be a subject of open discussion...

Thank you.

I would opine that some of the service items on sbr711's post are dealer upcharge items not listed in the owners manual maintenance schedule. Timing belt at 60K, really?

No, his list looks pretty good.

Take a look at your manual, 60K miles is the norm for a Hyundai to have a timing belt change

My manual specifies replacing the timing belt at 60K only in severe service. Normal service is 90K.

It goes by both - time and distance.
Mine states 90k miles as well, except severe conditions, which in turn are created in such way that every single driver drives in severe conditions.

So, dusty roads? Salty roads? Hot? Cold? Wet? stop and go? highway? all of it is under severe... I find it annoying.

Yes the list makes it very rare and close to impossible for a driver not to have severe driving conditions.
