Hello everyone! Yes, she has been named, however, I am still waiting on her arrival since Aug 11, a 2022 Hyundai Venue SEL. The current car that I have driven for 12 years, 11 months and 23 days is ready to retire, I can say she never gave me any major problems until the last few months there were a few issues that’s been adding up. I hope Vinnie will live up to be as long as Vive so we can have some fun together. Anyway, I would like to ask on how long does it normally take before the vehicle gets to the dealership? The last I check it shows status as PA for about a week or so and then it was changed to DS but then today it was changed back to PA again, can someone tell me what that means and what would be the status if the car has been delivered at the dealership? Normally how long does it take before it is ready for pick up once it was delivered at the dealership?
Next few questions are once the car is picked up, I would like to get some advice or suggestions since it’s a new car. We plan on going directly on a road trip as soon as we get off the dealer’s lot we’ll be driving from MD to FL. I’ve heard different stories about breaking in a car and the oil needed to be changed before a long drive, how true are these? The dealer said they will check everything and no need to worry about it. Will it be fine to drive the car until we get to FL and get the oil changed there? With all these new tech and hopefully better engines, any advice on breaking in the car? Can a regular gas be used on the Venue with no issues, or do we need to use premium? Any suggestions on car seat covers, floor mats, etc. Any suggestions or advice is greatly welcomed and appreciated 😊

When I was a young pup, back in the Eisenhower era, everyone knew that you don't drive a car over 50 mph for the first thousand miles, and that you changed the oil after those first thousand miles to "get the shavings out." I'm pretty sure that is bullshit now, and probably always was. Just follow what the manual says (which is 12 months or 7500 miles) and you should be fine.

I just use regular gas. Can't help you with the other questions, as I bought mine off the lot.

PS - Welcome to the boards! And what is the car that you are retiring?

Welcome, glad you chose the Venue.
Everything @Chicago Jake says is true. There used to be break-in oil in new engines from the factory that would require changing after 1000 miles, it is still sometimes used in engine re-builds. Hyundai only suggests you follow the maintenance schedule detailed in the manual.
Hyundai does have a break-in process...from the Venue manual:
Font Terrestrial plant Screenshot Circle Number


The first year is the adjustments portion of the warranty. During this time you can get squeaks and things that don't quite fit right taken care of. In my first year, I found nothing but keep an eye and ear out, just in case.

Thank you Chicago Jake.
It's a 2009 Pontiac Vibe.

Got a story for you.
When I was a kid, my old man bought a brand new Chevy citation and packed us up and went on a road trip out of state. Well long story short, the car had issues and we found ourselves out of state trying to get the car to a dealership for repair. It was a god awful mess that I still remember to this day.
Now I’m not saying that will happen with the venue as it has been a dependable little car so far, BUT it is new and untested so anything is possible. Parts are hard to come by right now for everything and I definitely wouldn’t want to get stuck somewhere trying to get a fix.
Moral to the story captain…maiden voyages should be done locally until she has proven herself sea worthy. Which brings us to “ breakin”.
I do believe in changing the oil after a good 2k on a new engine, just in case there has been shaving. I have seen the metal deposits many times in new engines. Normally very fine and not much to worry about, but it is a case to case study.
I do believe that it is important to work the engine back and forth through the rpm band to properly seat engine parts. I observe this every time a modification is done to my “main squeeze” as Ralph likes to call her, Vanessa. Long trips on the interstate with the cruise on will not accomplish this at all.
I do know for a fact that new cars have not been through heat cycles and just one bus line of wires not assembled correctly could spell disaster (Citation issue).
Lastly I believe any new car is an unproven commodity and based on my experience with my old man’s road-trip, I would never make the same mistake.
Just my .02 and it don’t mean jack in your world. Hope you enjoy your new venue as much as some of us have. It’s been a great little car for me so far. Wheel Tire Car Vehicle Window

one is for function…one is for fun.✌🏼

Aha, made by Toyota! As a long-time Toyota man, I approve. No wonder it lasted so long.

(My Venue is my first non-Toyota in a long time.)
@Chicago Jake yes it has a Toyota engine :) I believe it is identical to a Toyota Matrix engine.

Is it true that the Venue has a Mitsubishi engine? I don't think I have driven a Mitsubishi before, how is it? I heard some concerns about power and I drive mostly highways, will that be a concern? Another question is: would you guys/gals recommend/suggest to replace the tires or the stock will be good enough?

The Venue Smartstream G 1.6l engine is designed and manufactured by Hyundai. I've never had an issue or felt concerned with power. I'm happy with the stock 15" all season tires that came on my Venue. I do change over to winter tires in the late fall.

@imaddicted2u that is good to hear. I did test drove a Venue but it was just within the area of the dealership and it seem fine to me. I was just curious and I figured best people to ask are the ones that had driven a Venue for a while.
