Do you not plan on getting yours serviced?
Did it myself NIck at 10000 miles. Afer all its only " cheap korean stuff"
Cost me a tenner for an oil filter and 30 quids worth of engine oil. Its not complicated. The only problem I have had ---and it was my fault -I used a jerry can containing petrol and methanol - that had been used to clean out the rib's tanks and then inadvertingly put it in the Kia.It messed up one of the injectors -but draining the tank and putting in 'fresh petrol' and a good cleaning
injector additive - cured it completely. The only hassel will be changing the timing belt at 60.000 miles.
Nowadays- its all about minimum cost for maximum effect.
