I posted a topic about using a Mazda CX5 to tow my 1700kg Buccaneer Argosy. I recently bought a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe after taking the advice I received. Thanks to all who replied to the topic.
I bought a used Santa Fe 2.2Crdi 200PS auto from a Main Dealer - one year old and 8500 miles, the latest version. A lovely car to drive.
Question: service is due at 20,000 miles or 2 years. Do Santa Fe owners recommend the intermediate service at 12,500 miles/1 year and would they recommend an oil change at 12,500 miles? I shall tow about 5000 miles next year. The dealer said not to bother. After driving VW powered cars for the last 11 years I am used to service at 12,500 miles.
Advice gratefully received.
Alan

personally I would do it annually but I have always done that with my cars. Diesels last longer with regular oil changes and as you SF will have a timing chain rather than belt it will enjoy having fresh oil. I get mine done with the MOT each year but obviously you won't be worrying about that for a year or two. My SF is 2010 with 100k on the clock but I only do around 5-6000 a year but still get a full annual service.
if your service book says 20,000 or 2 years you can always get the garage to give you a stamp on the invoice to say that they did an interim service.

Hi Alan, On my SF I averge around 15k miles a year, and do the interim service at the10k miles.2014 SF. But I paid for the 5 servicings up front. My dealer also said not to bother with the interim as the modern oil is ok for the 2 years 20k. I would rather change my oil at the 10 k mark.

If the car is a year old then you might need to claim under the guarantee at some point. If the manufacturers require an interim service and it has not been done then they might reject a claim. You will need to decide if you want to take the risk.

Times change and so does the quality of engines and oils. If the manufacturer states 20000 miles or 2 years why on earth would you not believe them and pay for extra oil? Next someone will recommend doing a 'decoke' every 6000 miles like they did on their Morris Minor. ;)

Chrisbe, I agree with you about the oils being improved , but there is the clause, that states if you are towing a trailer you may need to increase the servicing due to the increased loads on the engine and transaxle, so on page 5/94 of my Hyundai SF manual it states just that. I do the interim servicing so that if I do have a problem and have to do a warranty claim I am covered.

If I had 2 year intervals I would do an oil change every year.
No harm in putting fresh oil in every year.
I had castrol long life oil in my audi and the castrol rep told me to drain in out and put Mobil 1 in and stick to yearly intervals

I totally agree, it won't do any harm but it won't do much good either. Are you suggesting oil only lasts a year?

My D-max is 2 years or 12k. We do about 5k p/a so we will be taking it for it's second service next year at 4 years old. This year was MOT only, no service.

Oil lasts as long as you want it too
As soon as it starts to be used it's degrading
You never see premeture wear until it's too late.
BMW,'s tell you when it's due a change mine was 6 months earlier than a co worker .he did more miles than me but I tow with mine.
You pay your money and makes your choice.
