Hello all
I am driving 2017 Sonata 2.0T love this car take great care in maintenance synthic oil from the start. This service call is oil change and one of the two dealer required calls. First one is brake service and second induction cleaning can't offer to do both now and car is perfect when driving,. All highway km Brakes are used lights and car is smooth running. Should I skip dealer required?

IMO you should be going by the schedule in the owner's manual not a dealer supplied schedule. If engine is running fine why do you feel it needs an induction service, expensive and in most cases not needed. What is brake service, just an inspection? If these are not required (induction not in owner's manual I am sure) save your $$.

I don't believe in anything called "dealer required" and just follow the owners manual requirements. Unless you got into some warranty extension or coverage of some kind that the dealer tacked on some other additional service requirements then there is no such thing as dealer required.

I CERTAINLY HOPE MANY PEOPLE READ THESE REPLIES AND REMEMBER THEM.

WOW, how many miles on this vehicle that it needs plugs on a 2017 model? I would love to see the breakdown on this service for $581? I would think air, cabin filters, oil change and filter and that is it unless mileage way up there

Ah, 68,500 miles, are plugs needed on this model at this mileage. Still cannot believe $581 for a service at 68,500 miles.

The car was good before it when in for this service, now it's even better.

I noticed my fuel gauge is just below 3/4 of a tank today after 333 km 3 days of highway and the response on take off is amazing.

Wow you paid a ton of money for a huge number of useless inspections that have no bearing on your warranty. Sorry, Only the R (replace) items in your maintenance schedule are needed to maintain the warranty, the others are all boat payments for the dealers. I think you could have done the required maintenance for well under 300, especially if you replaced the cabin and air filter ourself. Oil change/filter, cabin and engine air filter, spark plugs that is all that was required!

Items you list would normally be included as a "free inspection", with other work being done! And the sparks plugs are a pretty easy task on these! JMO

The 2.0 turbos require spark plugs at 70000,. Carbon cleaning treatment every 30000, I missed the first one. Brakes are good
