I just got my 13 VT Ironman Silver last friday( happy 1 week anniversary) Anyway they brought it from another dealership and it did not have any manuals with it. So yesterday the dealer called and said he had one for me ,so I drove there and got it. When I looked at it it was from a Veloster and not a turbo. Dealer says they are the same manual I don't know if he is jerking me around or they are actually the same. Can anyone help me out with this are they the same the VT and the V manuals?:cool:

The manual is the same. It specifies within items that are "turbo" or "non-turbo" specific. It's kinda generic if you ask me. I would have liked to have seen a "turbo" specific manual myself.

I did, however, get a whole pack of manuals, which included a quick start guide, a service record card (very important for warranty compliance), and blue-link manual (as mine is equipped) with a DVD. And some other safety related junk about air bags, abs, etc.

CONGRATS on your purchase!

The big manual is generic - and not very good IMHO. Mine came with a handful of other smaller manuals that covered my options and generic legal stuff. None of them were turbo specific but the Maintenance Log has a Turbo specific tidbit that is fairly important.

It's probably easier for me just to type them out here than do the scan and email thing.

The Turbo (TGDI) has specific oil requirements that is going to look like gibberish here but is something you need to know when you are doing oil changes.

API Service SM/ILSAC GF-4/ACEA A5 or above and fuel efficient oil. Look for those ratings on the oil jugs when you buy them - and don't use oil that doesn't have one of those ratings - and that "fuel efficient oil" part is prolly a leftover from Korean translation. My guess is that most quicky lubes won't have this oil on tap and will just try to sell you their synthetic oil. Insist on these ratings. They probably have oil with these ratings in jugs but you have to ask for it.

Use 5W30 or 5W40 - this is in the log. Some people on this forum are using 0W20 to make more power but I would never do that. The first number is the hot weight or viscosity and is the viscosity that is required for normal running. The second number is the cold viscosity and is the viscosity that Hyundai wants to coat engine parts when it is turned off. 5W30 is for cold climates or season and 5W40 is for warm climates.

The oil capacity is 4.9 quarts - which is higher than average due to the oversized oil cooler. The stock engine only needs 3.8 quarts. If you aren't careful and your VT is mistaken for a stock one you could end up a quart shy.
