    Selling for more than when it was new?

    In Canada I am noticing this with used mazda mx-5's and porsche boxsters. Its crazy what some people want for cars that are over 20 years old. I plan to swing down south to pick one up next year. Prices are acceptable in the good ol US of A. Even with the cost of border taxes they are cheaper.

    Before you go off all high and mighty. Understanding that oil changes are about how you drive your vehicle and not just some number. When the vehicle was new, we had a newborn and did a lot if warming the suv before we used it. By 1000 it was a quart above and stank of gasoline. So I changed it...

    2020 Hyundai Tucson 2nd Oil Change - should I change now or wait?

    Thats what I thought. 50micron, bragging. Might as well be letting asteroids through. Not an awesome filter if you ask me. I don't understand all the love for these filters.

    I find them over priced compared to aftermarket options in my area. You can get a filter with synthetic media for much less.

    2020 Hyundai Tucson 2nd Oil Change - should I change now or wait?

    I thought the Magnus-Moss act prevented any body from rejecting a warranty claim on the basis of aftermarket parts. There is nothing in the warranty that states OEM oil filters must be used?

    2020 Hyundai Tucson 2nd Oil Change - should I change now or wait?

    The ones from rock weight a ton. They are quite heavy compared to the OEM that came on the car from the factory. I would not use a cheap pos aftermarket filter, but I hate paying dealers prices for not amazing filters.
