Very nice service. I parked and walked up to the service writer in sorta an Express garage/pullup building with sliding doors. He checked me in efficiently and quickly.

Nice waiting area with free coffee, tea, water. There were a couple of vending machines for snacks and pop. The last time I went to a dealership for service was in 2018 for my Ford Focus, and that Ford dealer had snacks for free like danishes. Must be a Covid precaution that this Hyundai dealer didn't have any free food.

Inventory was very slim -- maybe like 12-15 total vehicles as far as new and CPO Hyundai vehicles. Couple of Santa Cruz trucks were out front I think about to be delivered to customers. I looked for a Venue brochure and there were none left, and most of the brochures were out of stock. They just had a couple Veloster N and Elantra brochures.

Zero Venues on the lot -- used, CPO, new -- nada. The closest vehicle to a Venue they had was a base 2022 Kona SE AWD for $24k. I thought they got rid of most of the plastic shrouding around the fenders? But that may just be for the higher trims? It still looks nice even with the plastic fender shrouding. This Kona was Lunar White. Doesn't look as good as a Venue though.

I was happy they vacuumed out and washed my Venue. It had been a month since I washed it.

My Hyundai dealership offers free 1-way uber rides for maintenance that take a while.
The Toyota dealership that went in the past had a free water bottle vending machine, and I would just abuse it like get a week's supply of water. :devilish: They also had a free sweet cocoa vending machine.

My first oil change, at 4800km (required every 8000km or every 6 months) cost $86 CAD. No service included up here in Canada. Fast and efficient but maybe too fast. The next day, when I checked the oil. I found the oil cap still sitting on the valve cover and later noticed a valve stem cap was missing on a wheel. They did give me this cool Hyundai badged phone charger to shut me up about it though...lol.
Has ports for any phone, headphones, earbuds, and extra USB port on the back plus a wireless charger in the center.

lol, that thing probably cost Hyundai all of $5 and were sent out in bulk to dealers. They should have given you at least 4 free oil changes.

I've had dealerships fook up basic PM's, so I stopped taking my last car (Ford Focus) to the Ford dealer I bought it from. It was out of warranty anyway. I just did my own PM's with parts from Rock Auto.

More like $2...lol...and I was lucky to get that out of them. I've never had a car to a dealer before, always did my own work too. My refrigerator is covered in RockAuto fridge magnets. Even with the exchange rate on the Canadian money, taxes, duty and shipping, RockAuto is always cheaper solution.
