    Your Hyundai dealer should be selling you the right spec. They should be able to look it up by your VIN and be sure. Why do you think they don't know what the are doing?

    to matte,
    the reason is that they told me that the service dept puts the same fluid in ALL hyundai's. my service manual tells me that hyundai changed fluid specs in 2008, the year of my car (and also in 2010). that's why i'm asking for info on diamond or sk. thanks for answering!

    Hmmmmmm. I'd still be very surprised is the dealer was using something for your car out of spec, but if you are just talking to the parts person and they aren't looking at the car, then something could definitely be out of whack.

    If you have a NAPA store near you, you should be able to get any of those fluids through them.

    That's about the average price. You can get it at Advanced Auto Parts for $4.99 per quart.
