    I priced Spark plugs for my 02 Santa Fe 2.7 and was shocked....The local B&B
    sells original NGK Lasar tiped plugs for $22.00 each. I can get Platinum
    tipped plugs for this model for $2.98...What do I do...What have others
    done? I plan on Calling the dealer tomorrow, but I thought someone here
    might have been down this path.....Thanks in Advance!...Jim/Redmond, WA

  2. How many miles on your '02?

    When I pulled the platinum plugs on our 98 Isuzu Trooper (at 89,000
    miles), they still looked in good shape.

    I replaced them, but the old plugs weren't that worn.

    How many miles on your 02? I'm sure that the Platinum plugs should
    last well past 100k miles before needing replacement. I would think
    that the laser tipped would last a lot longer. Are they required for
    the Santa Fe? This is the first time that I've heard that they are

    The Santa Fe has 37K on it...they were supposed to be changed at 30K
    according to
    the owners manual, but I've only had the vehicle for 3 months and am trying
    to catch up
    on the maintenance. That's all I know..Thanks!

    It's my understanding (you realize this information is worth what
    you pay for it) the plugs are: "covered up to the first replacement

    If you're in the U.S., you have platinum plugs that shouldn't need
    replacement until 60k miles. They will be well worn at 60k. You should
    do them at that time.

    Thankyou for the info!...I stopped by the dealer today to get some SP III
    Trans fluid and they said the same thing. Thank goodness!
