problem #3

With the steering wheel turned to its far right extreme, the front suspension emits a loud creaking noise when there is an incline, such as entering a parking lot entrance or driveway. This is the only time I hear the creaking noise. This concerns me because I'm afraid the noise indicates a failing or faulty suspension component, which could possibly lead to loss of vehicle control should the faulty part fail with the vehicle in motion.

Was not given the opportunity to test drive on the highway upon purchase. When I took the vehicle home and got it up to highway speeds the vehicle floats, or sways left and right like its out of alignment. Hyundai has told me unfortunately that is just the way the vehicle rides, this is not acceptable because I feel that is a safety issue. If you add wind in the equation it is a constant fight the keep the vehicle straight or in its lane. Drove 650 miles plus to get this resolved and no resolution has been met. The vehicle seems to sway and float more on paved highways, black top is a little better but still the same. I was given a loaner Elantra same year and the same issue.
