The first thing to do is verify the car's manufacture date. It will be on a label on or near the driver's door, inside back edge (could be on the door jamb). No sense paying for the repair when it would be covered under the recall/extended warranty.

If you are the original owner of the car, it is covered under warranty. 10years, 100K miles.
And there was indeed a recall for that very problem. If the dealer keeps acting like a jerk, contact Hyundai.

I have a elantra 06 model with the hvt engine dose anyone else have a rattle when
they first start and if they take the revs up to about 1500 then let go sounds a bit
like a tappet. I noticed that they have gone to the c v v t engine now maybe there
was a problem. I am an ex mechanic but disabled now after car accident so I know
the noise is out of place.

You can get a wheel lock club also. It is just another way to slow down the theft. If you do lost the club key, locksmith can unlock it. The 2012 Elentra GLS also has an engine immobilizer.
