I purchased a used 2010 Hyundai Elantra back in July 2011.It had about 18,000 miles on it. I purchased the extended warranty (100,000 miles/10 years; whichever comes first). Anyway, it is now at 30,000 miles, so it is time for my 30,000 mile service. I called my local Hyundai dealership where I purchased the car and they said the basic service for 30,000 miles that would still maintain the validity of my warranty would be $500. :( I have talked to people who feel this is exorbitant and a waste of money. I an new to owning a car and I really don't know anything about changing my own oil filters etc. I want my car to last a very long time. So far I haven't had any problems with my car. I get oil changes every 3500 miles. Is this a normal price for a 30,000 mile service? What's the alternative if there is any to still make sure my car lasts a long time.

I'll pay the $500 if needed ...just wanted to get others feed back whose more experienced.
