Hello Kareen, Overhaulng dfntly betters the car performance, but for smtime the engine remains sluggish, the a/c, transmission will also perform better, the cost for accent overhaul is between 35-40k, depending on the spareparts replaced, most probably, the piston rings are repaced if no major damage is reported, overhauling by good hands is a major concern so look out and go head

Better to avoid overhaul at maximum level u can as engines will be assembled on CNC Machines at initial state but during overhaul, it's all mannual.

Generally big cars like Ascent will have around 1.5L Kms engine life ( minimum) & max depends the way it's being used.

Better u try to do minimum but essential maintenance done regularly & use sinthetic oil, check oil level on regular basis so that u can conclude if the overhaul is really important as if it's so then the oil consumption will go high & some people ignore it & hence the engine seazing will occur. Even if ur car consumes more oil, u can keep a watch on it & there are aditives available from 3m which can help u maintain car in stand still condition, u can use ur car with this technic till the car comes to totally break donw state as u will loose the feel of the vehicles after overhaul & even after that some times pick up reduces ( which is a very general observation after overhaul) & u will loose interest itself.

Also u can get the car's general check up done every time before going for long drives.

Changing radiator is depends on the Service Engineer's advice & the temp needle indication generally.
