Apple car play does not read messages back with exception to rare occasions. Explained that I use rental cars on average 3 times a month and have NEVER had an issue with this in any of the rental cars including the Chevy Malibu I had rented the week before. They tried it one time and said, "nothing wrong...it works". Had a Santa Fe Ltd 2011 and people always complained about my blue tooth so it was virtually useless. Was assured all this was worked out. Apparently not. When on open road wind noise from driver's side rear window. Very annoying. I think the door is out of alignment but they had it for 2.5 hrs and said there was nothing wrong. Passengers who ride with me state otherwise.

Replaced tie rod ends. Inadequate design and light weight material unable to handle normal street driving probable cause. Vaunted warranty useless. Have also had two windshields crack overnight without known cause. Probably due to internal stress or temperature variation. Cheap glass and poor construction. Again, warranty worthless. As reported before, Nav system is useless. Finds about half locations input so rely on smartphone.
