rust at rotor and beyond only have 21 thou miles . warranty went 9/10/2013. now this big issue - am upset with this & have a SantaFe, now what ?? Will cost thousands to repair plus have to have towed & only covered for $75.00 big deal. Was not my first choice in auto makers.
Took my car to get tires put on after a worsening wheel alignment problem had caused the tires to bald , after mavis put the new tires on they told me subframe was rotted out and would need replacement ($2500-3500), hyundai let us know that this was a recurring problem with 2002 Sonatas and replaced everything free of charge , they were excellent with the whole process , thanks Hyundai
