What octane gas are you running for the 1.6 T engine?
Ethel for me right now with Prolong oil additive.
Use the Hyundai Filters and ask them for a synthetic upgrade at your next service. Use what they have available, don't go off on your own. It could cost you your warranty. I'll also going to be using a K & N Air Filter until the SYSTEM Upgrade Intake is here and installed.
K & N does a better job at filtering then the OEM unit. Nuff said. Prolong is not Moly, or teflon, it's a micro lubricant. I see that you unaware of the product. I've used it in all my automobiles, some with over 200K and still running strong.
The Magnuseon-Moss Warranty Act doesn't allow you to do anything for the individual specifically. It simply says; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson%E2%80%93Moss_Warranty_Act . Think you'd better read it again.
Good luck with telling Hyundai you're not meeting or adhering to their warranty requirements. It the motor is damaged and they find out you're not sticking to the requirements of the warranty, you'll have a very hard time in getting the auto repaired under warranty. There has been a quite a few instances where warranty claims have been denied due to these very reason. You'd better do some research.
Everyone has access to Oil Lab testing, they're on the Internet by the hand full. You can get your oil test quite easily but doesn't mean anything to Hyundai and their warranty. You'll find it much easier adhering to their warranty requirements then going it alone. Rather you're right or wrong, is not the issue. If you don't follow their requirements, you run the risk of a warranty claim denial never-the-less.
In truth you don't know if you or they would win or not in court. You can't read the future, let alone acquire the legal backing Hyundai is able to muster and put forth. The burden of proof is solely on you alone, not Hyundai. You're just wishful thinking and that can get you into all sorts of trouble.
I've already checked with Hyundai regarding the K & N and they are fine with it. It's the only actual authorized filter upgrade approved across the majority of manufacturer specifications. You need to do some research on the K & N and it's actual specifications. I can see you haven't.
One of the main reasons people select the Hyundai is; their best in the country warranty and price point. They are a solid built auto with a great reputation for longevity.
Do as you wish but you alone will suffer the consequences of your actions solely.:wink:
Believe me they can if you are outside those guidelines and warranty requirements. It's been done thousands if not tens of thousands of times, since the enactment of the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act.The federal minimum standards for full warranties are waived if the warrantor can show that the problem associated with a warranted consumer product was caused by damage while in the possession of the consumer, or by unreasonable use, including a failure to provide reasonable and necessary maintenance.
Again you may have read it but you're not that familiar with the Act as you believe you are. However I'm not hear to argue the point. You're welcome to believe what you want. You can do anything you desire with your Hyundai, it's solely your choice. However, your fear mongering from past experiences with your Elantra and over what oil to put in your Hyundai is again, your choice. I could care less about your past exploits with hobby mechanics your problems with your Elantra and I dare say, no one else is either and it won't mean a thing when presenting your side to the courts.:wink: I see that you're back at the same watering hole and your personal pride getting in the way of; clear thinking.
When you take a major manufacture to task on a warranty claim, you have to have carry the burden of proof or should I say, your lawyer does. YOU have to file the suit, the federal governemnt isn't going to represent you. The Act only protects the individual, if the individual consumer is in line with the requirements of the warranty which is being denied. It simply sets Federal guidelines & requirements for manufacturers to follow.
I'll bring your attention to one specific part of the Act, Believe me they can if you are outside those guidelines and warranty requirements. It's been done thousands if not tens of thousands of times, since the enactment of the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act.
Be my guest when and if it happens please, press the test. You won't have a leg to stand on, nor the money or legal power to refute it. Hence, the burden of proof in on you, as I stated before. Definitively, you must show and prove to the court, you have provided the reasonable and necessary maintenance along with reasonable use and not strayed from the manufactures warranty guidelines, not Hyundai. But be assured, they will have their guns load and to bear when the necessary time comes.
So go ahead and keep with the,"wishful and presumptive thinking," I've already told you, YOU can't foresee the future. However, common sense should tell you; "you're barking up the wrong tree!" Go ahead, take the low road and it maybe to your own detriment in the long run. Just as it nearly was in the in the past, with your Elantra and shaped your present thinking. You should have learned something then, instead of being hard headed. It's expedient for most to follow the manufacturer guidelines. When YOU don't everything necessary to adhere, it goes against YOU and YOU only! No one is going to be there to hold your hand and make it all better. Also keeping in mind; there is always three sides to a story; your's theirs and the truth.
I suppose you can at least remember the; The Path of least resistance, or maybe that's wishful thinking on my part. What do you gain by being hard hearted and stubborn? Where does it leave you? There is a time and place for everything but you must be intelligent enough to understand; which battles to fight and which ones to walk away from.. Again "common sense," should ring fairly clear in this scenario. There's an ole saying, "Be banging (one's) head against a brick wall, it feel so good when you stop.."
Do as you wish but keep this in the back of your mind as well, if you dare.:wink:
Keeping with the thought, this is a presumptive discussion only.:grin:
