Agree..I purchased the foam..and installed...I saw no point in going to dealer..as Hyundai is still working on the wind noise fix.That will never happenYes. Some people are handy, some are not. I am the latter. So I hate the idea of taking a new $48K apart to add foam rope and possibly making the car worse. When the mechanic found a gap between front door and back he asked if I had taken the car elsewhere before him. Implying exactly what? Someone else damaged it? I damaged it playing around with it? His tone said-this would never come from the mfg this way? I did the pre delivery service and did not see it he said. Like he would never miss something. So, I patiently wait for replacement parts on this and get to drive over an hour one day to leave my car w him, drive over an hour home in a loaner, then repeat the next day to go pick it up. There is 4-5 hours of my life at car dealer in days to fiddle with a new car. That is one issue-what about the driveshaft? Another day? Another 4-5 hours of drive time for car work/repairs IF Hyundai will even acknowledge it. TSB says it’s only on cars before July. So, the TSB must be right. So what I feel is non existent per dealer and Hyundai b/c my mfg date is after what Hyundai says? No one should have to lose/waste time like this. In service department, on phone with Hyundai, keeping records to prove it, time on the road to/from service, putting senseless miles on it to service. While also dreading
an upcoming 6 hour road trip in it. This might be a good little runabout town car. But I would have bought a smaller car if I needed that. I already have one of those. This was to be a road trip, family car. A quiet, smooth, enjoyable riding car. It is not. Very disappointing. No one should have to do ALL this, then have to go buy a new car again a month or 2 later. And the smell is something you think you now smell even away from the car. But what fun shopping online for charcoal deodorizers for the new car to maybe kill that smell. And what fun yesterday removing headrests and sniffing them, trying to get to the foam to see if that is the problem. You think it might be one issue-wind noise-but nope-they keep coming. And to be honest, why can’t Hyundai offer foam rope install as a courtesy? Attempt something vs just telling a customer who spent $48K, sorry, but this is normal.
The warranty is a scam.
