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?
Me: Okay, one final question, what viscosity oil do you guys use?
Tech: Its mineral oil.
Me: Mineral oil.
Tech: Yes, mineral oil.
