Battery is covered under warranty. And Hyundai does not make the battery. The OEM battery on my '05 dropped a cell at 18Kmiles and the dealer replaced it with an Interstate battery that had a Hyundai sticker applied. And apologized for the inconvenience. And and had me in and out in less than 30 minutes.
What more could I ask for? Sometimes a battery just croaks. Sort of like a hamster.

Those can be tricky to find. "Hey Leo, come over here and let me close you in the trunk to see if the light comes on. I'll let you back out. Promise."
#85 of 209 clutch all the way to floor? 2007 elantra limited
Nov 09, 2007 (11:41 am)
I've had my car for four days, and though I love the car, I really, really do not like the clutch. Now I wonder if something's wrong. I have to press it all the way to the floor to engage it; to the point where I've stalled out a couple of times. Does anyone experience this, or might something be wrong with it? It's actually really annoying to drive this way, I have to stretch my left leg out to get it to engage.

on my '99 Kia Sephia 5-speed manual I couldn't start the car one day. I had just purchased the car and was having a hard time getting it started. I thought that that was weird as the car was about 5 days old. I eventually got it started and drove to me dealer.
One of the service people came out and explained to me that I "had to have my clutch pedal completely pushed down to the floorboard when cranking the car over as it won't start if you don't."
It must've been dumb luck helping me to get the car started until I learned this. Once told that information it was easy starting it from then on. I remember it being kind of a left-leg workout for a few weeks until my leg was used to pushing the clutch pedal all the way to the floor when both starting the car and shifting it's gears.
#87 of 209 Here is a list of my 07 Elantra issues
Dec 18, 2007 (5:33 pm)
Hello all. Heres a list of some early production 07 Elantra issues i have had. Build date October 2006. Purchased Feb 2007. Speedometer error off by 5 miles per hour, drivers side seat track off track from factory, alignment off from factory, steering wheel off center, glove box rattle, passenger side dash vent creaking, all were fixed by Hyundai under factory warranty. Mystery rattle has developed behind glovebox so the quest is on to find it. Overall these are annoyances except for the speedometer but Hyundai did make good on it after consumer pressure and extended the warranty so i am happy with that.
So far everything else is going well after 18,000 miles. Switched to 100 percent synthetic motor oil and so far the engine is a bit quieter on startup in the colder weather so i highly recommend it.

Update: Got it fixed lickity split under warranty at the dealer. Good experience.
The foot rest might ve been cracked before I bought it. However they damaged or loosened the hood release during the repair. Had to go back next week to deal with that. They must like me there.

Backy and others.
What are your thoughts on the Elantra Touring 5-door coming out in a few month?

Right now the Elantra Touring is near the top of my "consider" list for when I buy a car this fall, along with the 2009 Fit. Of course I'll have to drive both of them, and I'll have to see how the IIHS side crash test comes out on the Elantra and what its price is relative to the base Fit. I like what I've seen of both cars so far.
But maybe we should discuss this in the appropriate Elantra discussion vs. an issues discussion, since there are no issues yet on the Elantra Touring.

Now pressing the little button won't make it pop after 6 months and perhaps 10 uses of that storage space. Glad I only left a lens cleaning cloth in there. Will see what the dealer says.
