Top 20 2008 Hyundai Elantra - Page 5 Questions & Answers

Hyundai has electric assisted power steering, not hydraulic, and I know the
new Sonata has some steering issues. Better bring it into Hyundai especially
since you're still under warranty. Don't fool with this, since the car is extremely
difficult to steer if you loose the assist.

Only thing I can think of is the emergency trunk release in side the
trunk on the trunk lid may be out of position. Open the trunk with
your key and have a look at it. Other wise you car should still be
under warranty, so let the dealer worry about it.

I am not familiar with this model, but most cars nowdays have a way to get into the trunk from the rear seat. Either it folds down or there is a passage way into the trunk from the arm rest in the center. If all else fails you can jump across the wire on the trunk button to activat it if the switch is bad, but I don't think I ever saw one that went bad!

Hyundai has an online repair manual, but you will have to call their
customer service for access (password etc.). Considering you
have such a great warranty on this car, might be better if Hyundai
performed the job to maintain the warranty.
