I only use Hyundai filters mainly for that reason. Too many stories of aftermarket filter kits leaking. You can buy the Hyundai filters online and on Ebay. That being said Wix also makes a filter, not sure if they will leak or not.

USE OF AFTERMARKET ENGINE OIL FILTERS
CAUSING ENGINE KNOCKING NOISE
Some vehicles may experience an engine knock noise with the use of an aftermarket oil
filter. Aftermarket oil filters may use different materials, construction and specifications
than genuine Hyundai oil filters, which may lead to pressure variations within the engine,
thus contributing to an engine knocking noise.
Perform an oil change on the vehicle and replace the aftermarket oil filter with a genuine
Hyundai oil filter.
Normal warranty procedures apply.
This is not a warranty repair.
[b]Just Info For All You Guys And Gals
Update: just bot 6 oem filters on eBay for $45 incl ship. Had I known about this prob, I would never have used anything but oem. Maybe that explains why the local parts stores always had only 1 or 2 aftermarket filters In stock, nobody buys them.
