    What vendor did you order the filters from?
  • rysterryster Posts: 471
    I used Rock Auto

    I believe I may have transposed the digits on the engine air may actually be 49450. The Rock Auto site has a great interactive catalog and will return the correct parts based on the vehicle model and year.

    I just got my Limited Turbo today and when I got home after about a 35 mile drive, I had the burning smell. It's the reason why I came to this forum - sounds like others have had the same.

    Most, probably all, brand new cars have some burning smell for awhile after purchase. It's just the factory coatings and stuff being burned off the parts that get real hot. Often test drives don't get the parts that hot so you don't notice the smell or the demo you drive may have already been through the initial burning smell thing. Don't worry about it unless it continues for quite awhile or you see smoke. ;)

    I can not get my Ipod touch to work. I am using the cable that came with the Ipod.
    Do I need another cable or should the one I have work? How do you get it to work?
  • denp3denp3 Posts: 99
    Yes, you need the special cable from Hyundai.

    Well, I simply tried to apply some common sense. Sure, you don't usually get to keep a car for a very long test drive BUT seats are, as you say, one of those subjective things that everyone takes a chance on when they buy any car but this person wants to have the dealer remove the driver seat to check...what exactly? That seems silly and pointless and that is what I pointed out. I wish Hyundai would hire me, I'd probably be making much more than I do now!! :)

    I am very happy with the seat on my new Sonata. However, I have run into problems with seats before. My Hyundai let me take a Sonata for 2 days to make sure the seat was okay for me. I have done that with other dealers, as well.

    Well, my butt hurt at first but not nearly as bad as riding in the passanger seat of a 2010 corvette.

    After several hundred miles I broke in the leather/it molded to my butt...

    My Sonata is now 1 year old. Does anyone know how to get the newest map updates?
    After 1 year there must be updates. I have version 2.11.13.

    I bought at Atlantic Hyundai because the price was the best. I am not happy with the Service dept. My car has been in 4-6 times for a bluetoth pblm. Finally I was told by Atlantic service that California Service, says there's nothing they will do. I have also been through the North East Regional Service Mgr who says go back to the dealer. The NE regional mgr says CA did not say that. Who's lying? My car is still not fixed. Person on other end hears echo and misses every 2-3 words?
    I was told that on Long Island, Huntington has the best service dept. I will use them for new issues, but I can't for the current ones since it will void out the Lemon Law issue.

    Have you tried a different phone? Most bluetooth problems are related to the phone or carrier.
    I bought my first car in 2002 from Atlantic. Next 5 I purchased from Huntington. Best service and best price when trading in!

    When you are using the Bluetooth try turning down the volume on the radio. The echo can be from the microphone picking up the speakers. Turning down the volume may reduce the effect or even eliminate it. That might also cure the missing words.

    BEWARE OF KOREN AUTO IMPORTS In March I ordered a S.S. Chrome metal lower level door trim for a 2011 Sonata. What I received was Chromed plastic trim piece. ( They subsequently changed the web site to read chrome plastic trim)

    My Son thought he would do me a favor and mounted this trim before I got home. I called their U.S. representative Sherwood automotive to advise them that their description was wrong and I wasn’t happy. They offered me a $20.00 credit against another purchase and said they could not issue me a credit against my credit card because they changed companies who handle these transactions.
    I decided to use this credit for another purchase a graphite overlay for the door switch panels ($59.95) For a 2011 Sonata. Received the overlays and guess what they did not match the cut outs for the 2011 Sonata. Called again and gave them the information on what was wrong about the fit. They said I was wrong and all they would do is give me RMA # and would deduct a 20% restocking fee and I would have to pay postage to return their error. Oh but now I could a refund check…… they didn’t offer this before only credit
    DO YOU WANT TO DEAL WITH COMPANY LIKE THIS? I’ve learned my lesson “A word to the wise should be sufficient”

    I called them ( mnsoft ) and they told me it will cost me $220.00 for the new upgrade.
    You wll have to pay everytime you want an update. Out now is version 3.07.06, I have 2.11.13.
    At that price I think I will wait until next year or the year after.

    OK I took a day trip yesterday of 250 mile round trip. Seats weren't bad at all, didn't feel any adverse effects from the seats.

    Funny thing is according to the computer we got better mileage once we got off the interstate driving around in town than we got on the highway. Of course driving there we were driving into very high winds (at least 25 MPH based on observing flags). Got much better gas mileage on the way home. :blush:
