#3404 of 3420 Protection plan for 2013 Elantra
Aug 05, 2012 (5:05 pm)
Hi....I recently purchased a 2013 Elantra and am considering buying a protection plan for the car. The dealer is offering Costguard warranty for around $1100 for a 10 year protection (with 0 deductible at the dealership). I looked up online and you can get Hyundai Protection Plan for slightly more $1600 with 0 deductible at all Hyundai dealerships (http://www.hyundaiextendedwarranty-hpp.com/PDF/HPPbrochure.pdf)
Also, is the HPP backed by Hyundai?

Realize that the $1100-1600 is only buying an extension of the bumper-to-bumper warranty from 60K miles to 100K. You already have 10 years of powertrain warranty so you're paying quite a bit to cover the parts that aren't actually essential to driving.
Hyundai's plan does have one other benefit: It also makes the full warranty transferable should you sell the car before the warranty expires.
Also, you should be able to buy the extended warranty at any time up until the manufacturer warranty runs out. So you can defer this decision (and the associated expense) for awhile.
What many here suggest is this: Take the cost of the warranty and set it aside in a savings or investment account. If you need to make any repairs, pay for it out of the account. If the account runs out, then the warranty might have been worthwhile. But if the account doesn't run out, or isn't even tapped, you've got funds to devote to your next car purchase or some other expense.
I used to buy the extended warranties but have stopped doing so. Cars are generally more reliable and base warranties are improving so the odds of having to pay for repairs out of pocket is going down.

#3408 of 3420 How can I remove grease *food" stains from car upholstry
Nov 25, 2012 (2:09 pm)
Does anyone have a product that is effective in cleaning the clothe upholstry on 2011 elantra? I purchased several car upholstry cleaners, but none have gotten any of the stains out. One of the stains is grease from Chinese take-out, but there are other stains from other "treats" eatten by kids in the back seat. Everything that drops stains, and even prompt clean up is unsuccessful in eliminating the stains.
#3409 of 3420 Headlight Fuse

I have a 2004 Hyundai Elantra and the low beam headlights just stopped working. The high beams work fine. Does anyone know if they are on different fuses?

Have you checked to see if the bulbs burned out? I've had to replace the ones on my '05 Sonata a couple times (I drive with headlights on all the time).

#3412 of 3420 2008 Hyundai Elantra
Mar 24, 2013 (11:37 am)
My 2008 Hyundai Elantra with 135,000 miles feels like it is going to stall when i come to a stop after driving at a high rate of speed...e.g., stopping at a toll booth after driving on a highway ...or exiting a highway and stopping at a stop sign..
anyone help me with what this problem may be?
#3413 of 3420 Unusual HPP opportunity
May 01, 2013 (5:29 pm)
My query, as short as I can make it:
Bought 2008 Elantra Feb 2008.
-Went to dealer, paid$1500+/- for ext wtty, 10/100000 b-to-b.
-Cut to this year, discovered dealer never submitted to wtty company (mileage now about 97500).
-After calls and a couple meetings, dealer offered the following:
1. refund, plain and simple
2. Either for amount currently held, or maybe about $50 more (not sure) 48000 miles of HPP Platinum from when I say "Go".
So--my question is this: given that even my drivetrain wtty is about to run out, am I better served to just take the money and run, or to take the warranty and drive? No issues so far beyond routine mtce, but we are running into high miles here.
