Hello all,

So the wife’s 2015 Kia Sportage is just about due for the 30K mile maintenance service. Last time I was at dealer for oil change, they mentioned it and said it runs about $400. In looking into it, seems bogus since most (if not all) inspection items are done at every oil change anyway. I already installed a washable engine air filter and cabin filter, and have done the fuel additive every other oil change.

See attached description from manual.

Besides tire rotation, anything else of note that justifies price, or how do I get around the ‘your warranty requires it’ BS ?
