problem #2

Santa Fe Sport ES

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,360 miles

We purchased the "Auto Butler" service to help protect this new SUV. We use the dealership for all regular and ongoing maintenance. When we brought the original chip to the service dept.'s attention, no resolution was offered. After several months the original peeling spot was worse and we requested maybe a "touch up" paint job. The service department informed us they did not perform any of that. They did send their "paint guy" to see what he could do. He took out a "nail polish looking bottle" and dabbed on some white paint. The paint did not match, nor did it cover the bare spot. Since then several more spots have grown across the hood. Today I took it to a local collision shop for an estimate. The salesman was the one who alerted us to the on-going problem with Hyundai. Now, hopefully, we will have more ammunition to bring to the dealership.

This has been a great car but the paint issue is an eyesore. Have read about paint issues on internet with this vehicle but nothing is being done. Not happy.
