Well, while I love cars and technology, I only average 3k miles a year on my cars (people LOVE getting my "used" cars ). I have 3 years free maintenance and don't want to give Hyundai any excuse to void my warranty. How often should I get oil changes and tire rotations? FWD

Thanks!

Hyundai requires that the oil be changed once every 7,500 miles or 12 months, which ever comes first. Same with tires, although the warranty is offered by the tire company and not Hyundai and it usually not much good anyway.

The cabin air filter used for the AC and heating system (in glove box) should be changed once per year, but most people can do this themselves. But very unlikely this would void any warranties, unless you air blower motor stopped working due to filter being completely clogged.

If you happen to fall into the "severe" driving conditions (see page 7-12 of your owners manual) the oil change interval is 3,750 miles or 6 months, which ever comes first. If you only occasionally drive in severe conditions, use the regular schedule.

Since you drive so few miles, it would be good to discuss this with your dealer service advisor with regard to the Hyundai free maintenance program.

Thanks for such detail, Alan! I asked my salesman and the finance guy, and they didn't know. Should I ask the service manager? So odd, seems they've never been asked that particular question before, lol.

Once the salesman and finance guy sells you the vehicle, you are a non-entity until you want to buy another one.

Call the service department and talk to a service advisor. They are responsible for all warranty repairs, non-warranty repairs and service, and free Hyundai maintenance issues relating to your vehicle.

The owner’s manual shows the recommended service intervals. Changing your own fluids, filters, etc will not void a warranty. I’ve got the 3 years oil changes as well and I’ll likely have a dealership do them until they’re gone.

Btw, I doubt anyone puts on fewer miles per year than I do, but I was told that the free maintenance is only at 7500 mile intervals. That's probably 2 years for me. I was informed that I need to get my oil changed once a year, and because it won't be within 1k miles of 7500, I'll need to pay for that. Seems silly to me that they go solely on mileage because I'll probably get one of my 3 free in 3 years and someone else will probably get 5 free because they're high mileage. Oh well. My sales gay wasn't aware of this, so I thought for whatever it's worth, I'd post this.

That is ridiculous. Your dealer was lying and that is not Hyundai policy. The oil change interval is 7500 miles or once per year, whichever comes first.

Either try another dealer or open a case with Hyundai Motor America at (800) 633-5151 or you can open a case online at:

Thanks! I spoke with someone in service. Maybe I should actually talk to a sales manager.

Thanks so much! I just spoke with the manager and he said they'll definitely be free for me! Thanks so much, Alan!

Yea it’s every 7500 or once a year. I don’t put tons of miles on my vehicles either so it’s usually once a year
I have put on 2400km which is about 1500miles since February. This car is for family trips, poker nights, and date nights. So it barely moves!

I changed my own 2021 Limiited’s oil at 1260 miles last weekend - just in case there was any metal shavings and swap it to full synthetic oil and a new K&N filter under $60 for everything including the 27mm nut for the filter cover and only took about an hour.
The factory oil that came out at 1200 miles looked pretty shot, more like I would expect from 4000 miles, very dark & dirty.
I am in between severe and regular schedule driving since I did tow my boat about 12 miles. I will pass on the free oil changes from Hyundai as I notice engine is quieter and smoother with full synthetic at idle & I don’t want to have that “synthetic blend” ever put back in...

I was in for my second free oil/filter change yesterday at 10,500 miles and was told that in my area (MA) the recommended interval is 3750 miles and not 7500 due to the climate, etc as spelled out on pag2 7-11 and is called Severe Usage Conditions. On all my vehicles, one with over 375K miles I compromise at every 5000 miles and it is easier to figure out when it is time, unless it has been over a year then I go by that (has rarely happened).

I'm in MA as well. I feel like I'd push back based on my driving. All highway over 10 miles. This is literally from the manual:
The owner's manual shows the following for severe usage -

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Follow Normal Maintenance Schedule if the vehicle is usually operated where none of the following conditions apply. If any of the following conditions apply, you must follow the Maintenance Under Severe Usage Conditions.
• Repeatedly driving short distances of less than 8 km (5 miles) in normal temperature or less than 16 km (10 miles) in freezing temperature
• Extensive engine idling or low speed driving for long distances
• Driving on rough, dusty, muddy, unpaved, graveled or salt- spread roads
• Driving in areas using salt or other corrosive materials or in very cold weather
• Driving in heavy dust conditions • Driving in heavy traffic area
• Driving on uphill, downhill, or mountain road
• Towing a trailer, or using a camper, or roof rack
• Driving as a patrol car, taxi, other commercial use or vehicle towing
• Driving over 170 km/h (106 mph)
• Frequently driving in stop-and-go conditions.
For additional information or assistance see your authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

RT,
Are you saying that this does not apply to you because all of your driving is on a highway and over 10 miles? It does say "If any of the following conditions apply, you must follow the Maintenance Under Severe Usage Conditions." As you know a lot of states in the US use road salt in the winter. And maybe other items may apply to you, as they do with me. So going by this table we are in a severe usage area. I am not saying I agree with it. As I stated I typically go with about 5K miles.

Yeah... sorry. I guess from an "oil" perspective, I would argue I'm at normal. Literally all my driving is highway and given traffic these days it's not stop and go.
As for the salt or corrosive item, that applies to the inspection of various components which I do myself (when I can). I'd be shocked if they could deny warranty service for salt having an impact on engine reliability from oil changes. Who knows.
LIke you I change sooner than 7,500. But I don't think I'm going to 3750 for oil changes. Although... maybe things will start to return to normal next year and in that case if traffic picks up, I'll probably do it.
