Maintenance Precautions

Improper or incomplete service may result in problems. This section gives instructions only for the maintenance items that are easy to perform.

Several procedures should be done by an authorized Hyundai dealer.

NOTE:

Improper owner maintenance during the warranty period may affect warranty coverage.

WARNING:

o Performing maintenance work on a vehicle can be dangerous. You can be seriously injured while performing some maintenance procedures. If you lack sufficient knowledge and experience or the proper tools and equipment to do the work, have it done by an authorized Hyundai dealer.

o Working under the hood with the engine running is dangerous. It becomes even more dangerous when you wear jewelry or loose clothing. These can become entangled in moving parts and result in injury. Therefore, if you must run the engine while working under the hood, make certain that you remove all jewelry (especially rings, bracelets, watches, and necklaces) and all neckties, scarves, and similar loose clothing before getting near the engine or cooling fans.
