My mom's Lexus is that way and so is my dad's Acura. It's an industry-standard practice as far as I know.

I'm pretty sure my 05 Malibu was not like this. I'll have to check my wife's 04 Civic.And Ford, Toyota, Nissan...and....
Hey, for $20K, I'd like to have the whole car painted. Call me crazy.Amazing that people **** about such a visually and engineering-ly stunning car, that beats the competition by around $5,000.00, having a couple of imperfections or "cheap" features...
you're crazy! ;-pHey, for $20K, I'd like to have the whole car painted. Call me crazy.

Probably not because they're not exposed to the elements like the rest of the car is. I really thought they missed painting a section of the car until I saw under the hood and realized it was meant to be that way. Still don't like it.OK ,here is a question: if those two areas that you complained about were clear coated , would you wash and wax them like the rest of the car ?
But neither are the door jam areas but those are painted like the rest of the exterior of the car.Go to http://www.hyundaiusa.com/vehicles/2011/sonata/experience/ and after it loads, click on the "Quality" videos. The third video on that line shows the build process for the car. To quote them, the ENTIRE body is "cleaned, painted, and sealed up." SO-- while it might not be the same COLOR as the rest of the car, WHO CARES? As you mention, it's in "not readily visible areas."
I think they've got a pretty good quality product going here, personally. That's why I bought it.
