    Yes, mileage has nothing to do with it. I have replaced the battery twice in the first 6 years which is pretty good for South Florida! The heat kills them here, not the mileage.

    i popped the obd port out the back to plug in my ultragauge. its perfectly fine. i did not have any luck with an obd splitter running my obdlink and ultragauge. most likely power related.

    I replaced my windshield wiper blades (front only). I called the dealership parts department and the replacements were $18 each. I bought ANCO-31 series blades (26 and 18 inch) for $16.97 total (that's tax included and free shipping) from Amazon. They are definitely more sturdy than the Hyundai branded ones.

    Replaced the rear tail lights. One was out so, of course, replaced both. Didn't wear gloves (tsk, tsk) so my body oils might taint the bulbs. LOL Sliding the tail light covers off wasn't so bad after I watched a couple of YouTube tutorials. In fact, it was pretty easy after watching them. I replaced the bulbs with Philips 1157LLB21 for $5.34 which may or may not have been the correct replacement bulbs, but they are working.

    Washed the car today and realized that my 2-month free SiriusXM from last summer had suddenly "expired" after 10 months. Guess I'll have to make an appointment at the dealership soon so I get another 2-month subscription (and hope for another long streak). Back to listening to NPR in the meantime, I guess. And then I had to take a picture of my clean car with my new Pixel 3a to see if the camera really is all that (pic unedited).

    you serious? you actually listen to that XM radio chit? i think it sucks big time. had it on trials in My Kia and now its on in the Veloster. get emails and now im getting damned phone calls. tried the 60's station with the "cousin bruce" show, used to listen to him in the early 60's when he was on WABC 77 in NYC for free and he hasnt changed. keeps playing the same racks at the same time and you can set your watch by him. tried some 50's channel and the first song i heard was "tonight (just could be the night)" and not by the original artist. im hard core metal and tried Liquid Metal. out of at least a 100 bands i follow, only 2 were ever played, Cradle of Filth and Battlebeast. to make things worse, the Battlebeast track was just a cover of someone elses song. ill stick with my flash drives an mp3 players, thank you!

    Spark plugs after 125,000 miles

    What did you do to your Veloster today?-old-plugs.jpg

    Nice that they use NGK Iridium plugs OEM. So I got a replacement of those exactly.

    What can I say? They played the music that I like! And it was free for me for 10 months! Sorry it didn't work the same for your particular tastes.
