Sep 2009 2000    
4000 0 Called dealer for warranty service - keyless entry function stopped working. Dealer advised me to remove PDL fuse for 15 minutes. Keyless feature resumed working. 
6000 0 Warranty service for non-functional rear wiper, cover on steering wheel missed stitches/peeling, recurrent keyless entry non-operation and power door lock failure. TPMS system also non-functional. 
9300 0 Warranty service for recurrent airbag light, rear wiper (again), and keyless entry/door locks (third time). The door locks now only work when the car is on and running and neither keyless remote functions. 
10700 0 New steering wheel cover installed. 
19000 0 Fuel filler door release spring failed. Part backordered. 
26000 0 Dealer has yet to receive parts for this problem. Suspect not ordered. Living with semi-functional fuel filler door for now. Valve stem with integral TPMS sensor broke off in hand while attempting to fill tire. Nearest dealer with parts assured problem could be fixed quickly under warranty. Dlr refused svce and attempted to charge. No damage to wheel/tire. Valve stem repaired under Hyundai warranty. Sick of dealing with Hyundai North America and spotty dealer network. Sold car, took proceeds and banked most - spent rest on used Saab 9-5. I'd rather have a fun unreliable car than a boring one.
