    Animals Sub Forum

    I was thinking it would be nice to have a sub forum for animals. Many members regularly post questions regarding their pets and other critters. The sub forum could also be used for posting livestock threads. Just a thought!

    Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30 TDS

    I emailed SOPUS the other day to get a technical data sheet for Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30. The one on their website has been encrypted for a year or longer now. PP 5W-30 is one thin 30 grade.

    Hyundai Fined $19 Million

    This is a bit unnerving. I really am beginning to question whether Hyundai knows what they’re doing. They make so many mistakes and have been fined more times than I can count the last couple of years, not to mention their large $ class action lawsuits...

    Tesla Model 3 Uber ride

    The Hyundai dealership provides complimentary Uber/Lyft rides for customers with vehicles in service. Got to ride in a basically new Model 3 RWD which upon my research replaced the Standard Range version in 2022. The Uber driver just got it two months ago and it had a little under 1500miles. I...

    Double Check Repair/Service Work

    Just a reminder for everyone to double check all repairs or services you have performed at the dealer, service facility, or mechanic. I went to my Hyundai dealer today to have a recall done on my Sonata, and for them to inspect an oil pan leak this car has had since new. The technician...

    Hyundai/Kia Thefts

    Just saw this on a Hyundai forum I frequent. The vehicle appears to have been equipped with a standard ignition key, no push button start. Looks like a it’s becoming a growing problem. I assume push button start vehicles are more complicated to steal. Just a FYI to anyone looking to purchase a...

    Moderators - Locked Threads

    Please make it part of your protocol to notify the original poster of a thread regarding WHY the thread was locked. E.g. Original poster creates a thread and then later realizes it was locked. It can be quite confusing to see a thread you created be locked and you have no idea why.

    Castrol Transmax ATF/CVT

    This must be the most universal of all ATF’s I’ve ever seen. I thought most CVT fluids were exclusive to CVT trannys for obvious design differences. Available at Walmart.

    Purple Power Glass Cleaner

    I’ve had these greasy spots on my 2018 Hyundai windshield ever since I bought it new and I’ve never been able to remove them. Either the dealership got some silicone overspray on the windshield, or the $4 car wash I went to a few times after purchase got tire shine on the windshield. Either...

    Dexos 1 Gen 3 Comparison 2021

    I came across this comparison spider graph on the Lubrizol website. Unless my eyes are deceiving me, it looks like D1G3 has a lower standard for wear and sludge protection compared to D1G2. Are motor oils getting to the point that piston cleanliness, LSPI, and turbo charger cleanliness, are...

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    Pick one up last month for a week long camping trip. Overall I liked it, I’m not a Toyota person but it has unquestionably good build quality. Just driving and being around it for a week is enough to realize that it’s built to last. It’s feels old school built but in a newer package if that...

    Fresh wash

    Taking advantage of the nicer weather here in the DFW area today. Have had this car for 2 years now earlier this month, I still enjoy the blue.

    Pennzoil Plat High Mileage

    Hello all, I just received my oil analysis kit from Pennzoil and to my surprise I got Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage. I have a few questions... There is no API certification logo on the front, should I be worried about that? It is SN rated but is the API logo necessary? The car in question is...
