#510 of 515 Re: Undercarriage Noises in '08 Elantra [justlou]

And the winner is,.... Thanks, I believe you nailed it! I called the Service Dept. on Saturday morning and they said they had completly disassembled, inspected, and rebuilt the suspension systems in the back of the car. They heard no more noises, - and more importantly, neither have I. I mentioned the stabilizer bar, and they said that could very well have been it. Throughout this whole ordeal the dealership has listened to me, been patient, proveded a free rental, and been in regular contact with me, - including checking out any responses I have received from Hyundai forums. I cannot say more. I am already a repeat customer and intend to remain one. Thanks again.

I'm glad you have it resolved, even though it took awhile. Luckily with mine, they diagnosed it quickly. My car only had 2k miles on it when it happened, and I was worried it was something serious.
#512 of 515 Sweaking Power Windows
Apr 15, 2010 (7:08 pm)
I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with swealing power windows. It only happens basically once the glass window is along the rubber guard when rolling up and letting go of the button. I have had both driver and passenger power window buttons(on driver side) have this happen. Dealer replaced the power motors once, then it stoped. Now its just the driver power window button that is doing it. Tech said that there are "many complaints with this and there is nothing that they can do about it and that is how they are made to work."
Does anyone have any solutions reguarding this problem?

In reference to my husband's Elantra breaking down and the 2 car / 18 wheeler accident trying to avoid him. WE GOT SUED!!!! But Allstate sued Hyundai and last week my husband had to sign paperwork he would not sue Hyundai for himself. Needless to say since my car was not involved even though it had a bad fuel pump I didn't have to sign anything. But Hyundai paid this guy $1500 for whiplash. Our insurance will not go up as Allstate proved it was not our fault but hubby had to sign he would not even join a class action lawsuit if ever there was one.

I would have it checked out before you change it. I had a Toyota Tacoma with 125,000 miles before the belt needed to be changed. I do know there is a belt problem with the AC on mine. I have taken it to the Dealer 3 times already for the AC. I have a 2008 Elantra PZEV. With the special emissions. I found out today when I went for inspection (NY) that there are 3 belts altogether. I only have 22,000 miles on my car. Did you get the safety recall letter about the stick shift/cruise control/brakes? They told me at Valvoline that the Elantra has a lot of transmission problems too. In fact it was Valvoline who when I had an oil change told me I had to replace the belt on my Toyota. My Elantra has had the cruise control problem since I bought it and every time I went to the dealer and complained they said they could not duplicate the problem. Now after 5 yrs this safety notice shows up.
