The AC would “freeze up” and stop blowing cold air. You could hear the fan making lots of noise but almost no air coming from the vents. You could turn the AC off and let the fan blow on high until everything thawed out again (5 to 10 minutes) and then use AC normally... well, until it “froze up” and stopped operating properly. Did research to determine the Evaporator Coil Tempurature Sensor (thermistor) had failed. Fortunately the dealer was able to test the part to determine it was bad. (Unfortunately it took two trips to the dealer.) Dealer ordered and installed part under warranty. No charge at all.

loud slapping noise when fan is turned on Continues to accelerate to 4000-5000 rpm from a stop to moving without excessive pressure on the gas pedal. Says it's an ECO Mode issue with no fix. Bluetooth is terrible - not sure if it's my phone (I've had several) or the car's Bluetooth technology, but does not recognize the name trying to call, so selects other random names not even closely associated with the name I'm trying to call. Glass replaced - factory glass chipped easily. One was fixed and then it cracked across the windshield in high heat.

A/C airflow would become blocked after 3 hours or so on road trip. Hyundai finally listened to many owners with this issue and sent out a Technical Service Bulletin to replace the thermistor (temp sensor) on the evaporator coil inside the cabin. Haven't yet had a chance to test the "fix" on a long trip - hoping the problem is now solved...
