You can use the IMG button and link to the photo URL. The photo needs to be hosted at a site like flickr.com or photobucket.com. Oh, try tinypic.com - it's quick and easy and will give you a URL to copy.

Replying to "squeak in rear of Veracruz" regarding spare tire: Our 2008 Veracruz had the same squeaking noise. My spare tire & housing completely fell off bottom of undercarriage all over the road without warning. Apparantly the cables holding the spare tire were worn or "accidently cut when the hitch was added". Not covered by Hyundai.
#160 of 177 2008 Veracruz Spark plug replacement
Nov 02, 2011 (2:10 pm)
My 2008 Veracruz with 61,000 miles has a plugged PCV valve and will need new spark plugs. I just took the vehicle into Hyundai service dept. for standard 60,000 service. My quote was a bit over $550.00 I got another phone call with the above problem. After spark plug replacement and adding a new battery & wiper blades now the cost is $1300.00

Sorry for the delay in response; I never received a message from this site advising there were new messages, so I assumed you never replied.
Couldn't find anything relative to those numbers, but it sounds like a Parrot, check their recent models out here: Parrot Manuals
Sounds like you got a nice deal.
Hope this helps,

#164 of 177 Hyundai settlement
Dec 26, 2011 (8:34 am)
This past summer, July 4th, on my way home from a long trip on interstate Route 80, outside of Pittsburg my 2009 Vercruz threw a piston. The vehicle had 10, 000 miles on it at the time. The vehicle continued to run on 5 pistons, with the engine light flashing, a loud cluncking noise, and no acceleration or power. I drove it another 20 miles like this as the sun set to Duboise P.A. Luckily there was a room at a Hampton Inn, and a Hyundai dealership there as well called Stokes Hyundai.
The next morning I drove it there and they diagnosed the problem. The vehicle would have to remain there for an extended period of time. Hyundai did not offer a loaner car, or any assistance to get me and my family home, I was on my own. (Thats what you call Hyundai Assurance) I rented a car for 350$ at the regional airport and drove back to NYC.
After spending countless hours on the phone with Hyundai I got no where, I even emailed the President and told him about my story. The next day a regional customer service person called me and tried to help me recoupe some losses. I wanted Hyundai to deliver the vehicle to me when it was repaired, pay me 350$ for a rent a car, and 115$ for my hotel room. They were willing to pay me up to 1,000 dollars but would not ship my car to NYC. So I rented another car to drive back to P.A. for 350, 5 hours there and 5 hours back. To me that was the last straw.
I purchased the vehicle brand new. Immediately after taking possesion the TPMS light would go on. I took it in the dealer. They would reset the computer and check the tire pressure. It did not fix the problem. So I continued to bring it into Hyundai and they did the same thing. I brought it in 5 times and savd the receipts. ( During this time it had other problems; one time my wife was driving it and the axile light came on the dash, the vehicle lost all power. Other issues; mirors would not turn down when in reverse sometimes. The steering wheel would jerk to the left and right when hitting a bump.) I then looked into the NYS Lemon Law and I knew I had a case.
I contacted an attorney and they took the case. I ended up settling with Hyundai for 5,000 because they werent able to fix the TPMS system from malfunctioning. I traded in the Vercruz for 23,500 and bought a 2012 Toyota Sienna for my wife. We are very happy with Toyota.
I probably wouldn't have threatened to sue Hyundai if they would have shipped the vehicle 350 miles to me. I guess for a big company 5,000 dollars is nothing but for me it got me into a 2012 Siena with practically no money out of pocket. But Hyundai lost more than 5,000 dollars. I would never buy another Hyundai. I believe their commercials are misleading, Hyundai Assurance. Whats the use of having a 5 year warranty if the vehicle is not relaible? I am so happy to be rid of that Varacruz, it gave me nothing but problems, and did not drive well.
