When I turn the steering wheel There is a metal clicking sound I checked the inner tie rod's they're fine also the outers are fine

in the last month my mpg has dropped from 23mpg city to 17

When driving if you push the clutch in it goes away. Hyundai says there nothing wrong that it is wear on the back break are new breaks are only few months old. 82000 km on car. Any ideas it's driving me nuts

open the garage door. The light (at the extreme left of the panel on the rear view mirror) usually is green when pushed. It just stopped showing green and opening my garage door.

no noise without brakes

I have a metal insulated cup that I have been using for over a year. When I bought this car in December, I started noticing that the bottom of my cup gets hot. Obviously the longer I'm in the car, the hotter the cup gets. I've never owned any other car that has ever had this issue. What could be the problem? Obviously the dealer doesn't want to deal with it. I need to know if I need to dump this car before it causes me more headaches.

I clean my windows and within 24 - 48 hours they are filmy, like I've been some sort of chain smoker. When I bought the car I felt it smelled a little odd. I have seen on other sites that it's a small leak in the heater core, but the dealer said there isn't one. I honestly think it's a small leak, but what else could it be?

I have an engine start/stop button on my vehicle. About an hour later, the brake is no longer stiff & the car starts. Why does this happen every so often?

has fluid/water but fails to squirt!

the rear sensor lites up and shows something behind the car as soon as reverse is selected

At least two stone chips in the paint on the hood have resulted in bubbled paint and rust. Rust has also erupted near on headlight, with no evidence of a nick or chip.

I just bought this great car only to find that my wife cannot drive the car. she is short and she cannot push in the clutch all the way when trying to shift. she will not move the seat closer because she heard that she can be killed by the airbag if she is too close to it if it deploys. She tried to drive the car a few times and due to clutch she stalls out, recently in a busy intersection, almost causing an accident.
I asked my dealer if we can swap the 5 speed for auto trans. they haven't given me a definite answer and i hope they aren't just blowing me off hoping I change my mind. I cannot change my mind as this is a definite safety issue. if the dealer says no what recourse do i have? please reply to my email
