Me: On the owners manual it says it doesn’t need maintenance until 10k or a year. But on Kia’s website it says the first one is at 5k.

Tech: Yeah, but we like to take precautions, You’d know Mexican roads are rough on cars.

(Translation: If you don’t do this service we’ll make sure your car depreciates at the same pace as the Russian Ruble.)

Me: Sure, what do you do on this service?

Tech: we change your oil, balance out your wheels, read your car with an OBDII port, and check all the fluids.

Me: And you guys charge 100 dollars for that?

Tech: Yes.

Me: Okay, one final question, what viscosity oil do you guys use?

Tech: Its mineral oil.

Me: Mineral oil.

Tech: Yes, mineral oil.
