Hey Everyone happy New Year... So one year and two months later, Sportage is still doing well. Reached 23000km and have not had any serious issues except for three Issues:

1) the theft of my Headlight washer that was ripped out the front of the car alongside the telescope etc to reconnect it.. Be Alert for those with the GT Line I have a few other associates who this has also happened to. (Costing 2500 for the replacement parts from Southern Sales!) This brings me to my question... If I go somewhere else other than Southern sales to have the parts reinstalled... does that void the warranty on the vehicle?

2) Can anyone recommend a good alarm for the Sportage?

3) Noticing a few hairline scratches on the paint due to constant usage (which is expected over time) plus a big truck gave me a Christmas gift of scratching the right passenger door and I am contemplating rather than just fixing the scratch (straightener charging 2500 to paint the entire broadside of the car so that it does not look two-toned), would it be better to just do a flash of the total car?

Any advice rendered would be appreciated.

Just an update.
Van just hit 90k km. No issues to really highlight.
Changed tires to good year asymmetric 3 F1. Really good response on driving now. Just changed front brakes as well and detailed van myself.
Looking for someone skilled to do the 100k service.
Anyone ever did any greasing of the suspension themselves?
