Jeff, I understand there is a small drop in RPM between N and D, but there should not be any rough idle. You can't even feel a clunk or anything when going from N to D. I am too old and have owned too many cars to know this is not the norm. If Hyundai made all their cars this way and told people it was normal, they would go out of business, no one would buy one.
My wife has an 09 Santa Fe and there is no difference between N and D.
I need to make an appointment and take it in. My friends with their Fords and Chevys rag on me because of the idle. I got to get it fixed. LOL
You might be onto something, or you might just be proving the theory that it's normal operation caused by the smart alternator increasing engine load when the brake pedal is depressed.
There are too many people experiencing this condition, without a single "fix" being reported anywhere, for me to believe that this anything but normal operating behaviour. And before we claim to be experts because we are old and have owned many cars before, we need to remember that none of those cars employed as many fuel-saving gimmicks as the Elantra. Smart alternators, ultra-lean combustion, etc. are bound to come with a few side effects. All new technology does.
You know, I think my 52 Chevy had a sponge material that had to be cleaned and oiled to catch the dirt. I was 16 at the time and the car was used and rusty. Very funny.
