  1. 2017 Hyundai Elantra Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Braking NOT Working

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    One thing to add on here, does the 2017 Elantra Limited with Tech and Ultimate packages (Smart Cruise et. al.) have Pedestrian Detection? I know the FCA seems to work fine, although I haven't found any sensitivity adjustment for it. I didn't think Pedetrian Detection was part of the package, and...
  2. 2017 Elantra - engine cylinder misfire

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Well, no coils yet on my 2017 Elantra, but the battery just died about 2 week ago. Less than 3 yrs, about 24,000 miles. Replaced under warranty. OTOH, my 2010 Elantra went 7 years and 37,000 miles on the original battery. Of course, the electrical system in 2017 puts more load on the battery...
  3. Test Drive of '20 Elantra SEL w/ C.V.T. ...

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    I was thinking more specifically about clutch pack wear. There's a downhill twisting stretch zoned for 35, but locals rarely go that slowly. I like to drop down to 4th, 3rd and maybe 2nd as the curve radius changes. Brings the revs way up, good engine braking, and even so I'll often have to use...
  4. Test Drive of '20 Elantra SEL w/ C.V.T. ...

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Not too much off topic, I hope. Seeing comments about shift points and durability made me wonder, I manually shift my 6 spd automatic (2017 Elantra Limited) sometimes, often decelerating like I used to do when I still had a real stick shift. Is there much of an increased wear factor on the...
  5. Blue Link questions 2017 Elantra Limited

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    True, I seldom use Bluelink, but this offer was like $1.39 a month and can drop it any time. I just wonder if my experience is normal? Kinda defeats the purpose when it's so slow and fails too much of the time.
  6. Blue Link questions 2017 Elantra Limited

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    I can't recall if I ever used my Blue Link, although I've kept the basic version. A few days ago I got a special offer to activate the Remote Access function. So far, I have noted it's incredibly slow to react (50 seconds) most of the time, couldn't connect to the server twice, and a few times...
  7. Stumbling on acceleration and transmission shift issues

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    As far as the stumble/hesitation, I was getting that, scary at times! I realized I was trying to launch like I used to with a carbureted car by braking and bringing the engine revs up, so as to launch properly...it won't work that way anymore. The computer seemed confused that I was on the brake...
  8. How often do you use "Sport Mode" in your Elantra?

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    The salesman told me it wouldn't make much if any difference on the highway, but it can help around town. I mostly leave it in ECO because in town is most of my driving. I do love SPORT when I have to hit the freeway!
  9. 44 MPG: Anyone else??

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    I've seen upwards of 47 mpg with my 2017 Elantra Limited, but it clearly depends on conditions. That would be my best highway mileage at 65-70 and no headwinds. Sometimes pushing over 75-80 to keep up with traffic, and hills and headwinds, it may drop to around 39 mpg. Local driving only, I...
  10. Conventional Cruise Control - Australian version

    Kona forum
    Owner's manual...all four of them! A small library came with my 2017 Elantra, and I did get them out and struggled through a lot of reading. I tried to hit the most relevant parts, but the Limited Ultimate package did have almost all the material covered, LOL! Actually I'm in the Kona forum...
  11. Conventional Cruise Control - Australian version

    Kona forum
    Odd that Kona lacks Adaptive cruise control... I looked at Kona when I tore my meniscus and thought the Kona would be easier on my knees entering and exiting than my Elantra. I have gotten to like the Adaptive cruise, but appears not available on Kona. So that ended that quest. But regarding...
  12. Auto climate control did something odd...

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Thanks CypressCorner. I figured there was a solar sensor, but didn't know where the inside temp sensor was. There are small slotted grills each side of the center panel kind of above the "auto" and "sync" buttons that looked like they might be taking air in, but I guess not. It just took so long...
  13. Auto climate control did something odd...

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Thanks Tunafish. The morning we left our outside temp showed 77, and the car was parked in the morning sun. So it had to be well into the 80's inside. More often, I have had it get over-enthusiastic about cooling down, it sort of overshoots the desired, and have to turn it up to 77-79 degrees to...
  14. Auto climate control did something odd...

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Thanks for the reply NicholasD, just that after nearly 3 years with this car, it felt rather different. Without my digital thermometer, I just go by how cold my knuckles and wedding band gets as the air from the vents gets colder. For over 60 miles, the air felt more tepid. When 73 setting...
  15. Auto climate control did something odd...

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Just got home after a week visiting kin in Georgia. Starting home, we left the hotel lot about 9am. It was 77 outside, of course hotter in the car, but not excessive. I usually set the climate control at 73-74 deg, but as we drove, the inside temp wasn't cooling down very well, air felt almost...
