2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Airport Parking Oil Change

November 12, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

The maintenance required light was on when I drove our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe home from the office. How long had that been the case? No idea. I was rotating into the car from something else.

The oil needed to be changed as soon as I could manage it, but I was heading out of town the next morning. I was flying to Amsterdam, in fact, to sample the new 2014 BMW i3 electric car. I'd be gone four days.

This was a job for Wally Park, the LAX airport parking service I like to use because they have these suspended foam pads between the parking spaces to prevent door dings. And if you leave the key with the valet they offer while-you're-away services like detailing, windshield repairs...and oil changes.

Sold.

The cost? $44.96 and zero time out of my schedule.
