  1. TPMS light stays on after filling tires

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    Same thing happened to me. Light flashed for several seconds, I'm panicking thinking my car is going to blow up or something as I try to remember what the light was for. When I realize is the air pressure sensor I go into panic mode as the last thing I want to do is to go flat and destroy the...
  2. pioneer 4400nex

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    Is it me or does the dash design really make installing an aftermarket radio difficult? I've seen "dash kits" for the Elantra, but a square radio that is not flush with all that plastic at the side looks so "tacky" IMO. That looks like a good unit and a good price, but I would hate myself...
  3. 2016 Elantra Sport Belly Pan

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    I stumbled across this old thread today as well. I'm totally blown away that the main under panel covers access for oil changes. I have also never owned a car that has such a heavy and thick panel. This sucker does not flex or bend well. Anyone have the part number handy so I can see if any...
  4. To tell or not? Dealer customer service issue

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    Well, the plot thickens, :frown: My daughter just got a job working at the dealership in the garage. She details, washes and cleans up cars as well as checks them out before delivery to customer. She was very surprised and said I should say something as well when she watched the video. I...
  5. To tell or not? Dealer customer service issue

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    I've decided to speak up to the dealer owner and service manager. I will need to upload the the rest of the video's to the web so I can link them for easy access either with the dealer or via email. I will re-watch every second, not because I want to see it, but that I want to create a very...
  6. To tell or not? Dealer customer service issue

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    :laugh:Should I include the video that has them saying they can get away with charging the 3rd party insurance much more than the customer for the same repair? And the subsequent chit-chat about writing up the work order? (told you guys there was more to this besides my issue)
  7. My second new owner question.... Warranty on inside trim

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    I'm interested in the outcome of this as well. My 2014 - still under warranty for another 6 months has the same issue as the OP. My car only has 22.5K on it. Everything else in the car still looks new. If it were a simple knob replacement, I wouldn't bother the dealer I would just buy it...
  8. Tire Thread

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    Did a little looking and this for some odd reason concerns me just a little. ..................215/45R17 215/50R17 DIFFERENCE Diameter.....24.6"...............25.5"............+3.7% Width.........8.5".................8.5"..............0%...
  9. Tech Package - adding a sub?

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    Thank you, this info your and the linked thread looks very promising. I like simple, not because I have simple taste or abilities (I'm an EE) but I just don't want to hack my car and need to maintain a warranty for at least the next 5 years. Plug and play is best, or as close to that as...
  10. To tell or not? Dealer customer service issue

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    Lol. The camera is there because several years ago I had the city damage my Celica to the tune of over $800 and when I complained they took no liability and I had no proof. To this day my car is still damaged. I bought the camera very soon after that and it has captured several incidents of...
  11. To tell or not? Dealer customer service issue

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    Its all PROS, mixed with CONS.. Going to management will almost certainly leave me with more "freebies" to make it up to me. If there is any ramifications to the techs for their actions, then really have to worry about my car. It may be subtle, but they could partially damage or loosen any...
  12. Tech Package - adding a sub?

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    So I searched "subwoofer" in this thread and got no good responses. Has anyone made or heard of any EASY way to tap into the OEM amplifier to get the low level signal from the head unit to use in a sub? Contrary to most, the "360W" system in my Limited w/ Tech sounds good to me, but is lacking...
  13. JL Audio stealth Box

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    That price is crazy expensive. $700?? Are you out of your mind? Someone send me one and iI will copy it and make clones for under $200 (box only, no hardware) lol
  14. Audio Upgrades Suggestions

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    Was all this stuff done on a base Elantra or one with the Tech Package? Good info here but not sure how much applies to a Limited with Tech Package.
  15. Tire Thread

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    My Limited also has 215 45 R17. How much will the 50's effect MPG, speedometer and even warranty? (my 2014 is still under warranty with 22.5K miles). The car has OEM tires, but somehow has a set of Hankook and a set of Nexen. Both have nearly new tread but I am considering changing them...
