4000 0 The rear wiper blade and holder came off while driving. Dealership ordered new part, we came in a few days later and they installed it. Took about 1 hour to get the car back. 
8000 0 I never received a recall notice. I ended up doing it on my own because I knew the vehicle wasn't riding right when it went over bumps so I brought it in and informed them of the recall. Also had some loud squeaking from the rear hatch. Mechanic found one of the rear hatch pistons had excessive play. Dealership ordered a new piston for the hatch. 
8700 42 Recall parts installed to front struts. Informed that squeak in hatch was not from hatch piston. Have to schedule a new appointment for car to go to bodyshop to diagnostic where squeak is coming from. 
20500 241 Front bumper cover tab snapped off now the passenger side of the bumper cover hangs. Doing battle with Hyundai for them to cover this under the warranty.
