Waste gate actuator at 17500 (turbo was down every cold morning until it was fixed).
Sunroof squeaks since day 1 - dealer can't fix it.
Rattling interior, leather seats wear out fast.
Lemon... both the squeaky sunroof (went 3 times to the dealership with no result) and the waste gate actuator are on the dealership service bulletin, so it's a common issue for these models. The waste gate actuator had to be adjusted - on every cold morning (temp under 15 degrees Celsius) the car felt like an 80HP car because of the cold air, which has more density, and the ECU was tricked and forced to open the waste gate to let go of "the excess boost"- so instead of sending the boost to the engine, it was wasted.
Other than that, lots of power, great looks, great fuel MPG (especially on highways), drives very well, very comfortable, very nice stereo, very nice interior except for the leather seats (which wear out very fast), cheap steering wheel (just half covered in leather) and the rattling dashboard.
I had very pleasant experience with an Elantra in the past, but this one is my last Hyundai ever, considering the amount of money I paid for this car and how many times I went to dealership in just 18,000 miles. Can't wait to get rid of it.
I will post more updates in the future, but so far I am very unhappy with the reliability, even though I am very happy with the looks, power and the way it handles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
