The written response from Hyundai corporate was that it is important AND by not following the Hyundai recommended service I might void the warranty.
Regarding the fuel filter and fuel tank air filter, your dealer is absolutely wrong. Read the manual regarding services. I have 162,000 miles on my 2011 Genesis and no problems. Not replacing the fuel filters can cause fuel pump problems. Your dealer obviously lacks trained techs and lacks knowledge of proper maintenance on luxury cars.
This is a big deal to me because of my air ride system, if they had to be replaced I would need to temporarily remove the tank and compressors to provide access. Came up with a makeshift manifold that would work for a day but needless to say it was a relief when they said not required. I pointed out to them that the manual states to change these at 60k miles. Dealer told me they don't replace them unless they are fixing a problem that already requires them to go into the tank.
Side note shouldn't they be able to provide me with a list of all the service that has been performed on my car even if done at other dealers?
