  1. I was going to change the oil and filter this morning and to my surprise I
    could not locate the filter without taking plastic covers off etc. I have
    the new aluminum block V6 that comes with the limited.
    Anybody know where they hid this thing. The manual recommends that the
    dealer do oil and filter changes. Thnks

    assume you bought the filter from the dealer as I've not found an
    aftermarket filter yet. I bought two and it came to $18 and change with

    since it requires a cartridge type filter.
    I also searched the Autozone site and they have a special order filter made
    by Fram CH9999 for $10.99 ea. Sounds like the dealer filter is a better
    Thanks again

    Go to a Kia dealer. The same filter - same part number, just says Kia on the
    box. $6.00 each.
