Was trying to find one of your posts, backy.
I wanted to ask you as you might be someone who knows, or can find out.
It's about the dif in wty coverage on Hyundai in USA vs Canada.
Yours is 10/100000 miles.
Ours is 5/100000 km which is only 62000 miles.
If I ask at my local Hyd dlr, they simply have no explanation. It really sticks in my craw that we don't get NEARLY as good a wty coverage as our American neighbours. The only way it would be more unjust is if I lived in a border town like FtErie/Buffalo.
this is ours..I think Kia is identical.
Basic Emissions Coverage
Major Emission Coverage
24 Hour Road Side Assistance
and see if you can make sense of these exclusions/conditions. It sure sounds complicated to me. Eng and tranny for 1 yr? this is just a small example

Maybe call Hyundai Customer Service and ask them to explain it?
Or write a letter to John Krafcik and ask why the Canucks are like Rodney Dangerfield when it comes to the Hyundai warranty: don't get no respect, no respect at all.

Is John Krafcik with Hyundai Cda? I have tried up the ladder back in July when i was car shopping. Now i am again, but i didn't have success before. Somebody has to know the real poop though.

For you, might be better to go to Steve Kelleher, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada.
I wrote a letter years ago to the then-President and CEO of HMA about my 2001 Elantra, and eventually I did get a call from someone in HMA about it. Didn't really solve the problem, but at least they followed up.

I bought my car 12/30/11 and now it is rattling, squeaking & creeking in the dash board, ceiling, and the rear of the car...dealer wouldn't take it back of course, noise in dashboard & ceiling near drivers door more than likely can't be fixed & everytime I hit a bump, it gets louder-has anyone had any similiar issues?

You mean 12/30/10?
If your dealer won't investigate these noises, go to a different dealer. Also have you tried contacting Hyundai Customer Service?
Does your car have a moonroof?

Thanks for replying to me-yes my car has a moon roof...and the noise is near the door in the ceiling on drivers side & the noise in the dashboard sounds like a baby rattle & the passenger door is starting to make some noise now--I am just in a pickle because if I trade, I am spending more money & will lose money-I am so disgusted,who would have thought you buy a new car & then have all these problems!

Rattles can be tough to find but can be fixed, sometimes very easily. For instance, overhead rattle could be a loose moonroof cover.
Have you let your dealer try to find and fix the rattles?
The other thing to check if you haven't already is make sure there isn't something rattling around in the glove box or sunglasses holder or other cubbie in the dash or the door bin. I used to hear a rattle if I put my sunglasses into the overhead bin with the bows facing out (in an Elantra, btw). When I place them in with lenses out, no rattle.
