Reading this web site makes me wonder if I'm a little
mixed up or what. I
do most all of my own maintence on 02 Sonata
with 71,500 miles on it. I have
never even checked my transmission
fluid. The underneath of the engine and
transmission are perfectly
dry and I assume it was filled at the factory. The
change it at 105,000 miles and I believe it.
I will change the
plugs when the car starts to miss or the gas milage
drops. That is the symptom
of needing new plugs. The plugs that are
used by Hyundai are top of the line
and all the other car makers
recommend changing at 100,000 miles or more. If it
ain't broke don't
I agree with others who say change the coolant every
two years. I
change the oil every 4,000 miles and think that is an overkill
because it is still pretty clean at that time.
I have been driving and working
on cars for 45 years and never had an
engine problem except for Fords but that
seems to be common.

Some of the other systems seem to be not designed and built so well.
My 14 year old Integra with 157,000 miles on it still runs great. I
water or oil and have spent less than $100 dollars for
repairs the last 5 years.
Hyundai will probably never match that.
