2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring 4dr Wagon
138-horsepower 2.0L I4 5-speed manual FWD
Not really a cosmetic issue. Chronic fuel door non-release (unlocks, but a thin object such as a key is required to open door). Lubricated by dealer, the problem persists but only manifests itself on an occasional basis.
Shattered front driver's-side inner fender sleeve due to -30 degrees. Consequent exposure of internal front bumper surface along bottom of wheel well resulted in accumulation of compacted snow/ice at that corner, cracking bumper bottom.
Defective sunvisor. Minor problem.
Inboard, passenger side, dash louver was replaced. Prior to repair, this vent had been stuck in the closed position.
Broken drivers side sun visior
Rattling noise at idle. Suspected cause was installation of performance springs during September 2010. Adjustment made, rattle gone.
Water leaked into area where spare tire is stored in trunk. There are two rubber grommets in this area for drainage and one appears to have been defective and allowed water to pool below the spare.
Water leaked into rear spare tire compartment for at least the second time I've noticed. Removed grommets and sealed them with a heavier grade silicone.
Black trim on roof had faded and peeled exposing metal underneath on both sides of the vehicle. Trim replaced with updated trim made of a different material all together.
Hyundai recall: replace door handles due to material peeling
Adhesive strip on roof by roof rails peeling. New strip replaced by dealer. Required a second repair trip because they initially ordered the wrong part.
Passenger-side door handle coming loose, trim peeling causing cuts on hand when opening.
Passenger side sunvisor, vanity mirror cover broke at hinge. Ordered and replaced sunvisor.
Fuel door was sticking and eventually would not release by itself. Dealer adjusted the release cable. This is a known issue.
The plastic cover on the vanity mirror broke and fell down. First, it was hanging and dealer said it wasn't covered by warranty. I called Hyundai corporate line and they said it was covered. Finally they replaced the whole sunvisor.

Loud squeeking noise in the rear - turned out to be one of the rear tail lights; housing. Tape was installed between the housing and the body.
'Fish eyes' in rear glass.
rubber trim peeling off roof
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.
The piston for the hatch also came in but they decided it wasn't the piston causing the noise. They said it was coming from the hatch itself and they want me to bring the car back in so they can send it to the bodyshop to diagnose.
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.
Body moulding became loose due to heat in southern sun. Dealer repaired under warranty.
front end noise recall
