I’ve been enjoying my Santa Fe for a while now and it’s due for new spark plugs according to the manual.
I’ve searched several parts websites to see what kind of plugs it needs and they have all said that all it needs are ordinary plugs that cost $8-$10 each.
I spoke to the dealership today and of course they’re telling me it needs the extravagantly expensive platinum plugs that can cost up to $100 each.
I am here in search of the advice of the great community here on if I really need the platinum plugs and just what the advantage is of those vs. regular ones.
