Howdy folks!

I have a 2007 Hyundai Elantra with ~115000 on the odometer. It hasn't been serviced since around 75000 (or was it 90000?) miles. I know it has a number of things that the manufacturer recommends servicing at this point. Given that it's a high-mileage car that's no longer under any sort of Hyundai warranty, I'm not keen on taking it to the dealership for servicing (if better options exist). I need to do the following:

REQUIRED:
  • replace timing belt
  • Brake job & inspect/clean/adjust related components
  • Transmission drain & refill
  • Coolant system drain & refill
  • Replace spark plugs & cables

PROBABLY NEEDS TO BE DONE -
  • replace the other parts that'll be easy to get to once the front-end is opened up for a timing belt replacement (water pump, idlers/pulleys/tensioners, and whatever else are present)

CHECK:
  • all hoses, seals, and fluids; replace as needed (no flushes)
  • Check A/C components & refrigerant
  • Inspect everything else

UNCERTAIN:
  • Fuel pump
  • Fuel filter

Given what's listed above, does this board have any recommendations on someone in B/CS I can take my car to? I'm not opposed with using a single mechanic or going to different mechanics if they have a specialty.

Any help is much appreciated!

Your local Hyundai dealership for a trade in? Relax, it's a Hyundai. I doubt much of that is really needed.

If he wants to keep in reliable, it should all be done.

I use Christopher's Auto Repair at (979) 571-9597. He doesn't have a shop, so low to no overhead. He comes to you. Very honest. I met him while serving on a jury several years ago & he works on my 2003 Dodge diesel truck when needed. Great guy!
