Question Asked: Which oil to use.
May 04, 2009, 01:32 PM
I have 65,000 miles on my car. When is it ok to start using 10W30 oil? It seems to be the common one used by most cars after a time. Right or wrong? Thanks.

Looks like it's all the more reason to keep up timely oil changes.(No pun intended.) Thanks for the answers fellas.
Question Asked: Timing belts.

I understand that the Genesis will not have a timing belt but a timing chain instead. I spent several hundred dollars replacing a timing belt as part of the 60000 mile maintenance schedule as suggested by Hyundai. Why don't ALL cars have a chain instead of the belt? I had a Mustang w/over 200,000 miles and never had to change the chain. Chain over belt would save the consumer a ton of money. By the way thanks a lot for answering my question on combining estimates w/suggested repairs. Looking forward to that enhancement. Great job guys!

It is possible that my Buick will require a new condenser. Your recommendations suggest also replacing the dryer. Is it possible to get a combined quote? This would be real handy for those of us who may need other major work done w/additional recommendations by your experts. An initial quote followed by one that would include your recommendations. Is that possible? Thanks a lot. This is a great service you are providing.

Great answer by autotechpat! I had that problem with a 93 Saturn after awhile. I used old fashion Lysol spray anti-bacterial in the outside vents w/the engine running and windows open. It worked great as well as deodorizing the car. If the odors come back just reapply.

Car Review: 2005 Hyundai Sonata
May 07, 2009, 10:38 AM
I bought this car w/19,000 miles on it. I haven't had any problems at all in the 45,000 miles I've put on it since. The 60,000 mile warranty check-up was a little pricey because of the timing belt replacement, otherwise this car has been economical to own. The V6 is still smooth and quiet and is a joy on trips. This model looks a bit like a Jaguar but without the price. Hyundais have come a long, long way and are worth considering when on the market for a new car. I'm taking a good hard look at the Genesis.
