  1. Notice of Proposed Class Action panoramic sunroof

    Genesis DH 2015-
    I searched and found no matches, however I vaguely recall people speaking to this some time ago. There is a class action lawsuit on the panoramic sunroofs shattering. Purportedly we now have an extended warranty on these things - 10 years or 120,000 miles. If yours have had issues, or you...
  2. Regular vs Premium gas, Genesis 15-16 yr

    Genesis DH 2015-
    Sorry - I just read up and noted Shell was the fuel brand that sparked (pun intended) this debate. Per the Shell website: "The Nitrogen Enriched Cleaning System gives all three grades of Shell gasoline the ability...
  3. Regular vs Premium gas, Genesis 15-16 yr

    Genesis DH 2015-
    The responses endorsing the use of '87 octane are right on target. Even if could actually measure the imperceptible difference (NOT) that would come of using 'premium' gas - do the math. On a cost per mile basis you'll never make up mileage for the huge price increase to put premium in. With...
  4. New 2015 Genesis Owner

    Genesis DH 2015-
    Glad you're enjoying yours. We just let go of our 2011 4.6 Genesis to replace with a '15 5.0 Genesis. Other than the dealer experience purchasing the car (my auction bud struggled with inventory of low mileage '15s - they were all at dealerships so we had to do the sleezebag route - and I do...
  5. Going Synthetic throughout the Fleet

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    I recognize that oil is an emotional topic for many die-hards. I don't wish to get everyone excited, but... I retired from the Nuclear Power industry. I'v been a gear-head since I was 16 years old. My bud was the emergency diesel generator guy. We both were very keen on proper design and...
  6. Trunk Light

    TG (2006-2011) Azera
    I just posted a similar topic entitled "dismal trunk lighting". Sorry - I didn't know your post was here. My solution is similar to the one above, and it works great. Very cheap.
  7. Dismal Trunk Lighting

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    If anyone else has been sorely disappointed with being able to see inside the trunk at night, an easy fix is to install LED lights. For around $18 shipped to the house from China I ordered two LED lights. Each light case has 12 LEDs and is on a pivot bracket. The cases are about 5" long, 1...
  8. Highway Drifting Problem

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    My '09 tracks perfectly Most of the causes (except one) for pull have been discussed: tire pressure bias - you ruled this out with tire swaps and pressure checks bad tire belts - as mentioned by one who also posted - you likely ruled this out since you swapped tires (2 wouln'd likely be bad the...
  9. Squeal/whine

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Check for belt squeal first. This is classicly going to occur when the belt is cold after initially starting up. If you notice more the first time you start in the morning, then the belt simply needs to be adjusted. Your comment about when backing out of a lot fits this because that's likely...
  10. Upgrading Brakes

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    There are alot of myths out there about brakes. If your pedal is firm, you don't need to bleed them. Even if you have non-condensable gas in the lines (highly unlikely unless you were doing race track type driving and boiled the fluid) - this will NOT change the effectiveness of the braking...
  11. Decelleration And Engine Braking

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Hi, I'm getting used to my recently acquired 2009 GLS V6. I've very pleased with the car - it was purchased used with 12,100 miles on it and I'm close to 14,000 miles now. I've learned a few things about it so far, but one has me a little curious. In most every car I've owned manufactured in...
  12. 2009 Sonata Limited V6 Door Repainted

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I would concur that the damage likely occurred at the dealership. Dealerships have been the downfall of every situation where a customer gets ticked at a particular car company. Remember, the dealer is not Hyundai - it's a shame that the dealer is not being honest with you. I understand...
  13. How Do I Reset Trip Odometer W/o Resetting Mpg?

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    YUP, gents - read the book, etc. etc. On my car, resetting the trip odometer also resets the mpg measure. I'll check again to make sure - but I've done it twice, hence the reason for the post.
  14. How Do I Reset Trip Odometer W/o Resetting Mpg?

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I've recently acquired an '09 GLS fully optioned - so far I really like the car. I'm curious - does anyone know how to reset the trip odometer ONLY? I notice that each time I reset the trip odometer, the mpg calculator resets itself as well. Is this operator error or poor programming on the...
