This being a new car probably with very low mileage the noise you hear is more than likely the exhaust cooling off after getting hot from will stop doing this after a while when it gets driven more.some cars do this as it gets broke in from driving.

SOURCE: paint peeling on my used 2002 sonata

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.

SOURCE: 2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

That will be your front axle or your left side ball joints, have them checked out, it will not be an easy fix or something that you can do yourself, it will continue to happen and wont get fixed with time.

SOURCE: Radio cut off, then noticed

you need to check your battery posts and make sure they are clean and tight you shouldent be able to spin them by hand on the posts. if you are getting a week connection all kinds of things strange will happen. then have your battery tested because if all this is happening its drained or very low.. all in all you probably need a new bettery.. i dont think a fuse because when one burns out its just gone. its rare one will continue to work intermittently.. the clicking sound you hear when trying to start is a tell tell sign of a low battery.. i hope this helps you..

Ticking noise - probably a lifter

Could be valve lifter, cam shaft wrong grade oil etc.
Take the rocker cover off and have a look.
