Is this for the 06? My 04 is only 21.95plus tax, less than 24 dollars, and Wal-Mart is 26 + after taxes, because they do not always carry Hyundai(pseudo Hyundai) filters.
Toyota/Scion only charges 27.95Plus tax, or around 30 for out 05 tC oil change.
I may have to look around on a few Hyundai fan forums, for 06 sonata oil changes being so much. Worst i have heard was 32 with taxes. I heard the new oil filter is in a "box", and not a normal filter, correct?(sort of like air filter, in a certain area, open it up, and pull out the filter like one would do to an air filter, except it is oily ). I read it was supposedly to save the environment some(not having a metal canister) and save the customer a little cash, too?
Anyhow, maybe Kia's new version coming out will be less pricey(see link)
I will check around and try to see what others claim to be paying. I have not read the other posts. Yours seemed to stand out, and I replied asap.
Anyhow, 60 dollars! They should hand wash and wax, and vaccuum your vehicle, too , at that price. That is about what("sale price") tire rotation, balance and 4 wheel alignment is, about 60 dollars(the good old days, of 1994, Sears used to charge only 29.99 plus tax for this service).

You first have to load your pictures up to something like photobucket.com. Then when posting the message you click the IMG button and then copy the URL behind that hypertext language. Then you click the IMG button again to close out the hypertext. Then click post my message.

Their facts are clear. Overall, the Sonata got G-A-G for the front/side/rear crash tests. But each score is made up of different components. The A score for the side test is the score based on the liklihood for injury to different body areas such as head/neck, torso and pelvis. In the side crash test the Sonata got a G for head/neck, A for Torso and P for Pelvis. Based on these results, the Sonata was given an A for the driver in the side crash test.

Exactly as kwonc71 said...lol
Perfect example, over here, oil changes are free for life (though with some limitations ) so it defn. varies between dealerships and what their policies are.
tb88 and benjip, go somewhere else or if you'd like, take it to Hyundai corporate and report your dealership problems. Keep in mind, as others have mentioned already, the pricing has nothing to do with Hyundai but how the dealership is strctured. No offense but frankly, I found both of your logic absurd.

...tb88 and benjip, go somewhere else...
Why don't you read something else if that bothers you!
It is only for people with a 2006 Sonata V6 who have to deal with eventually! and those who are considering to buy Sonata!
It is Hyundai responsability not impose expensive Maintenance... they are the one who switched to this idiotic filter!

Looks great! Steel grey was my choice but it is my wife's car and she preferred the midnight blue.I used NXT on the last wax but have heard good things about s100.

Looks like someone needs a Xanax. Chill......... Joe97 was just suggesting for you to go to a different place for that particular lube service.
But I understand your frustration. $62 is way too much, and to make things worst, taking your car to some of those speedy Lube or national franchises can be a bad idea. Why? The July/05 HMA Service Technical Bulletin reports that using Aftermarket oil filter may cause engine knocking noise

USE OF AFTERMARKET ENGINE OIL FILTERS
CAUSING ENGINE KNOCKING NOISE
Some vehicles may experience an engine knock noise with the use of an aftermarket oil
filter. Aftermarket oil filters may use different materials, construction and specifications
than genuine Hyundai oil filters, which may lead to pressure variations within the engine,
thus contributing to an engine knocking noise.
Perform an oil change on the vehicle and replace the aftermarket oil filter with a genuine
Hyundai oil filter.
Normal warranty procedures apply.
This is not a warranty repair.
