I'm a little late with 30K service. There is about 30,400 miles on the car. I'm going to call the dealership tomorrow to set up an appointment. What do you think, can they void my warranty?

Thanks, but can you be more specific. How many miles over 30K can I go so that I don't void the warranty. I want to do 30K service this week but it would be useful to know.

I also read in the manual that this service should be performed at either 30K or 24 months whichever occurs first. I bought this car 2 months ago with 28,600. It's an 07 sonata so should I assume the 30K service was done a few months ago and skip it. Thanks

These so-called "30K", 60K" services are basically high priced scams which purportedly include many "inspections" of various types.

I find it hard to believe that dealers are actually using car warranties as a club to get people to go for these "service packages".

You give the car the service it needs, which in its early years" is mainly oil and oil filter changes and a new cabin filter once a year.

And, if you want it done right right, you do it yourself.

But you forgot to say, you have Two (2) 2006 LX Units, both with under 25,000 Miles. You were a Federal Attorney. You had to
sign the Hyundai Warranty Acknowledgment form. For you and I, well the New Car Warranty is coming close to an end, and the Power train
coverage until 100,000K is if we live so long, and have the proper Maintenance records. I would say if you expect Warranty coverage, you
must maintain the Vehicle per the Manufacturer.

Maintaining the vehicle as per the maintenance schedule is a far, far different thing than taking it in for some pricey *** scam marketed as a "service package".



*** The last time I looked, they were pricey too -- running to as much as $1000 and consisting by and large of a long list of "inspections".

Hey, life is short, don't shorten it even more with unreasonable worries.... We've never read here any complaint about Hyundai not honoring the warranty because a car owner went for his 30k service at 31k or even 33k, or because the oil was changed even 1,000 miles later than what the "holy book" says.

Take care of your car. Read the book, have the car serviced by a qualified, certified mechanic at an established shop, save all the receipts -- and SAVE lots of $$$ by NOT going to your dealership for service.

And please enjoy your Sonata. Sleep well at night.

I might add, do the work yourself, if possible - Save lots of money and also know what went into your car.

Also, as my posts should certainly indicate, I would not dream of buying a dealer "service package", "service plan", "BG plan", or anything of the kind, yet I've never had the least problem getting warranty service on any car I've ever owned. I even declined it a couple of times on my Sonata's because I didn't want the dealer people touching my car.

We are talking Oil Change, Filter Changes, Coolant Change, Automatic Transmission Fluid change, and a few more other Services.
The Man who wears the Star at Texaco, or even the Shell answer Man has not been trained on your Hyundai. Your Hyundai Dealer also has Genuine Factory Parts. Crush Washer/O Rings, who need em' :innocent: :thumbsup:

OK, few of the above I may not (actually will not) let my Shell guys do. But there are shops professional enough, some of them KNOW Hyundai products enough to perform all of the above. When I have a warranty issue, I will approach the dealer. For my 30k-60k-whatever-k service, I will turn to them private shops.

But that is me (and a few other members here, as we've been reading). Others are welcome to pay their dealers lots of $$$ and make their car feel like VIP.
