So one of the factors that led to recently buying the VN is the Hyundai Warranty.

Any basic advice on how to keep the warranty and maintain the car?


For example, the first thing I'll need is the 3000-mile oil change. It'd be nice to have the mechanic I've used for the last 20 years to do it, in part because I'd like to show him the car.

But would you advise I do everything possible via Hyundai? Or should I not worry about who does the work?

Thanks,
- Joe

P.S. Yes, I know things are spelled out in glorious detail in the manual. But I subscribe to forums like this for palatable -- not necessarily legally defensible -- discussion and help!

As with all manufacturer warranty's, as log as OEM or better parts/fluids are used and you have proof of the work you will be fine.

I do my own oil changes. Will not goto Dealer for that at all. But I do goto the Dealer and buy the oil filter and I keep the receipt and keep logs of all maintenance with receipts and dates. Don't care if I add fuel system cleaner, it gets logged. The stock oil filter is pretty darn good too. No need to go after-market on that IMO. \

I also always run 93 octane too.

I'm always tinkering with the car and inspecting things when I clean it every week it seems like. During that process I should see brake lines that need replacing or brake pads, which I'm not looking forward too..Ha. Expensive from what I see.

Internet search make it sound scary to use independent dealers, saying the Hyundai will disallow warranty for the slimmest of reason if you didn't go with a dealer.

But it's hard to know how what's real from the web. Not including this forum, of course ;)
