I'm glad it helped you. Hopefully many more hybrid owners will see this and get the TSB installed on their cars. It makes a world of difference.

#181 of 188 New TSB For Sunroof Noise
Sep 02, 2013 (5:03 pm)
DESCRIPTION: On some 2012~2013 Sonata (YF) and 2012 Sonata Hybrid (YF-HEV) vehicles with panoramic sunroof, a slight creaking or rattle noise in the roof may be heard. If the source of the noise is around the roof area on top of the B-pillar, follow the procedure outlined in this bulletin to eliminate the noise.
This basically uses "acoustic felt" and Loctite to secure the sunroof cross-members to stop the creaking.

#183 of 188 Sonata Hybrid Upgrades
Jul 29, 2013 (5:49 pm)
Upgrades for 2013 Sonata Hybrids:
1. More powerful electric motor with output up from 30 kw on 2011- 2012 to 35 kw on the 2013s.
2. Smaller yet more powerful lithium-polymer battery pack that ups the battery discharge power significantly from 34 kw to 47 kw on the 2013 model.
3. Updated Hybrid Starter Generator from 8.5 kW to 10.5 kW of capacity to provide more charging capacity and seamless electric starts.
Hyundai also improved the hybrid system clutch control, vehicle response by throttle tuning, as well as optimizing regenerative braking shift pattern, and decreasing friction in the compact six-speed transmission.

Oh, don’t forget the lifetime warranty on the advanced lithium polymer battery pack and Hyundai’s 100,000 mile/10 year power train warranty.
Both lead the industry.

The Sonata hybrid has unique mirror mounted turn signals, chrome side moldings, different front fascia, more aero rear, a different decklid, hybrid specific LED running and brake lights, and unique fog lights.

The Hyundai hybrid system’s rapid battery charge up and discharge have some similarities with recent Formula 1 Racing technology.
The introduction of the Kinetic Energy Recovery System that will eventually make every future Formula One race car a hybrid began in ’09.
F1 teams may use KERS to draw 60 Kw from the rear axle, store that energy and reuse it by pushing a 'boost' button. Basically the system uses regeneration to collect and store energy during braking.
The system allows the drivers to use 60 Kw (82 hp) for 6.6 seconds per lap. The system is fairly conventional, using a single 60 Kw liquid cooled brushless direct current motor / generator unit. The motor is attached to the front of the 2.4 liter V8 and driven by a reduction gear off the crankshaft.
Also included in the system is a KERS control unit, separate from the Microsoft supplied FIA engine control unit. The battery pack is mounted at the bottom of the fuel cell and in the case of Ferrari is supplied by French Li-ion battery maker Saft.

Yep, I just figure that with all these F1 race cars in such a high heat environment, sometimes even wrecknïg and never a mention of a Lithium battery pac doing anything abnormal, us civilian hybrid drivers are probably safe.
I remember early in the Toyotas hybrid rollout, and especially after the Highlander Hybrids were introduced, when rumors of rescue personnel being killed by hybrid components were common.
A Li-Polymer type battery is used for the Sonata Hybrid.
The basic function of the battery system is to store, in chemical form, electric energy obtained either from the engine or regeneration and supply the stored energy as needed.
Additionally, it has to manage input and output power based on the state-of-charge (SOC). The BMS (battery management system) performs accurate estimations of battery status and controls the temperature appropriately.
Compared to conventional first gen NiMH batteries for hybrids, the Li-Polymer type battery of the Sonata Hybrid has a better performance in the power/energy density by weight and volume, self-discharge rate, life cycle, cold weather characteristics, SOC estimation etc.
