I would have called Hyundai customer service or found a different dealer to handle the problem long ago. Your dealer is sluffing you off.

If you're waiting for the dealer to call you, you're in for a very long wait. You'll need to be a little more proactive.

The dealer called yesterday and said the trailer wiring harness and map light wiring kit are in and I have an appointment next week to have them do it. ghd1959, I would try a different dealer. Mine is so eager for me to give them 10's on the customer survey, I think they would do anything for me right now. I bought both a Santa Fe and a Tucson (for my daughter) the same day and told them that unless everything wasn't perfect they would regret it.
#11 of 16 [jdhart]Survey, Badging? ,,,a bit too eager
Dec 29, 2007 (9:02 pm)
I bought my SE 200SE Santa Fe last Feb and was promptly inundated with surveys, and other related items. It also continues (but more mildly) after oil and other services. I expect the next question to be...did we use the correct amount of KY.......I sent them a large size KY jelly presuming that was about the correct size for a Santa fe...This survey also had a great Picture of a great looking cutie in the front...tell me the Koreans didn't learn fast!
There just has to be some kind of dealer "perk" for good survey pk marks. I could see it for those badged cars that carried a really prestigious badge but not a Hyundai (YES, I am still liking mine a bunch! and since the dome light (whicj they quickly resolved", it has never seen the interior of the shop! As I stated and have my friends asked ...it he finally finished buying cars cars monthly. Do I have a few small beefs, , sure, but I would have to say not may not as many issues as other brands. (Like my poor Mini Cooper that was a complete blast, WHEN THE BUGGER DECIDED IT WAS GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO DRIVE IT THAT DAY! hey, I was around in the BAD ole days when a ride in a Hyundai was to see who could run the furthest! before breaking something and bonus points awarede when doubles werew hit.
I was traveling a few months ago and was awaiting a ride to the airport at about 5am. I heard this ratling, cachinging type of noise coming from my brother in law's 2 yr old 5 series MB! Mercedes Benze. I could not wait to see what would lay odds it was the serpentine belt which had to have some kind of Pulley issue as well (Man was it hot under that hood) (We were in Florida) he actually asked me what could possibly happen if he were to drive it home. I just said "POOF" s the cab picked me up....Then I thought...of course it is the supercharger...just had to be. then i woke up from nana land!!! and Called my Brother in law a little too late. he has been driving with the Service light for so long and was going to being with a whopper of a bill Something about replacing a belt...just made me feel crummy inside!

yeah - you gotta keep the pressure on - from dealer to dealer - they will handle these issues differently depending on what their priorities are....

Around here, every dealership would like to be ranked #1 in service customer satisfaction for this area - regardless of the car manufacturer. Even the sales mans commission percentage is based on the a satisfaction survey.
#16 of 16 Trailer lights not working
Aug 11, 2009 (6:25 am)
I have 2003 Chevy Tahoe and a 1999 Ford F150. My problem is when I connect the trailer with the F150, the lights, blinkers and break lights work fine. Now when I connect them with the Tahoe only the parling lights work. the blinkers or the break lights do not work. Can somebody help with this problem
