The dealer won't help you without getting paid. unfortunately, no one will. if you need to fix the paint, take it to a paint or body shop. it will cost you though.
if you're into doing it yourself, and it's not peeling in a big area, you can get some touch up paint that matches and try it yourself. i don't reccomend this for any area bigger than two hands though, it takes practice to look right.

the problem is sometimes hyundai's bonding agent (chemicals that stick the paint to the surface) doesn't work as well as it should. most bonds are harder on plastic, hyundai cars have trouble keeping their paint on the door handles, too.

Why is the paint on the rear bumper, handles & spoiler peeling?


That generally means that there was a defect on the application of the finish at the factory. Unfortunately it is not covered by the warranty after this long.

My hyundai sonata 2004 rear door has broke, can i change door with hyundai sonata 1998.


Hello,


The 2004 door is not compatible with the 1998. You need to find a door in the 2002-2005 range. The 1998 door might look the same, but the mouldings, wiring (if you have a power door), and the trim card will be different. If you find one in the above year range you will be able just to put it on and drive away. If you decide to look for a used door call your dealer with your VIN Number and ask them for the paint code. If you are lucky you will be able to find a used door in color.

Good Luck!

Is this car not still under warranty? Take it to your Hyundai dealer for repair unless it is out of warranty. In that case replace the upper hose or possible use a different type hose clamp.

Cruise control problem


This is normal for the 2.4 lit 4 cylinder engine. I assume this is the size engine you have in your Sonata. If it isn't, perhaps you should take it in to the Hyundai Service Center and ask them to verify whether or not it's a problem that needs to be fixed under warranty, or whether it's normal.

HOW MUCH TO PAY FOR TIMING BELT CHANGE-HYUNDAI SONATA 2002


Hi if your made of money then you can go to the main dealer but if your local mechanic is reputable then he should be alot cheaper for the same job, also the timing belt is not usually covered under warrenty, but to comply with the warranty you must keep your car serviced and replacing the timing belt is part of a main service, Hope this helps
