*dup Half way between Sudbury and Timmins the car just died. No power at all. Weather was clear and sunny. Called Hyundai from a truck stop at Hwy 144 and road 526 and was told that car had to be within 100 kms of a dealership to be towed. Hyundai would not cover towing because car more than 100 kms from a Hyundai dealership. Found computer system was fried. Had to wait 8 days for replacement and flights to and from Sudbury at own expense. Incorrect part. Had to replace electrical computer, solenoids, fuses and part of engine wiring harness. Car had to be retimed, replace spark plugs and fuel injectors. Hyundai unwilling to warranty.

2013 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan

138-horsepower 2.0L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

19000 mi I had a TSB performed that replaced a broken plastic axle washer with a metal one. What prompted this was a clicking sound on acceleration from a start, and lift throttle conditions. 
22300 mi With 21,748 miles on it my Hyundai Elantra has a bad wheel bearing on the front passenger wheel. This is being covered under warranty Had TSB 14-FL-006 performed to try to fix an intermittently rough idle. As I drove home from the dealer the idle was smooth, but the check engine light came on. I will have to return to the dealer for further investigation into this matter. 
30300 mi Transmission temperature sensor needed to be replaced. 
47000 mi Don't know the exact problem, but it was emissions related and covered under the warranty. Check engine light is coming on intermittently now, so the same problem may be comming back. 
56000 mi Warranty replacement of oxygen sensors...second time in less that 15000 miles 
80000 mi recall...now getting a knocking from the transmission like a valve spool sticking...nuther trip to the dealer is scheduled. NOTE: this is the only major issue in 80K miles! EXCEPT for the LOUSY MILEAGE--28 to 29 MPG on cruise/car pool lane 
99000 mi Lost the paddle shifter...dealer wanted $700 to fix. Found a manufacturer's TSB on this problem, but dealer still refused to deal with it. Had prior problems with the shift lockout preventing starting. 
112000 mi Took car in for recommended maintenance change of transmission fluid and other small items. Car came back with the paddle shifter inoperative, and the air conditioner locked on. Dealer refused to acknowledge the problem was theirs. 
4000 mi Rear passenger tire toed in. Straight tracking failed. Dealer determines the rear axle and control arm needs to be replaced due to damage during transport. 
34000 mi The car shifted hard into every gear up and down. Dealer result the adaptive learning and the car drives fine. 
42000 mi Faulty transmission temperature sensor was causing hard shifting in all gears, up and down. This happened back in Nov. without throwing a code. They did adaptive learning and it was better. This time it threw codes.

50220 mi Replaced gear shift knob. The metallic plating was flaking off and very sharp. Hyundai refused to cover this as an "impact" caused problem. That is BS as all of the plating was coming off and had never been "impacted." Rear view mirror replaced due to flaking of mirror surface. Hyundai replaced it under warranty. The clutch assembly needed replacement with only 80,000 Kilometers (50,000 miles). Hyundai refused to cover this even though there was evidence of uneven wear on the pressure plate. Driven MT cars for almost 50 years and never had a problem. Although the clutch replacement in the previous trip fixed the clutch engagement, the car still would not reliably shift into 1st. A separate problem, apparently. The dealer, replaced the shifter cables. This improved the problem, but the transmission is
