After days of waiting for an answer from the Hyundai dealership I finally have a response that my transmission is in fact “bad”, and Hyundai is honoring their factory warranty to replace it. The cost of this job without the warranty would have been $5800.00 out of pocket, so this makes me very happy. The found a few other things that needed attention like the front brakes and air conditioning belt which I granted them permission to take care of. There were also a few other recall items that they are taking care of.
The only problem is that it will take up to two weeks to get the part and do the work but I have been granted a rental from Enterprise that will also be covered under the same warranty.
I no longer have any bad thoughts about the Hyundai Corporation who came through and honored the problems that this 2010 Hyundai Elantra had. Because of their positive actions I believe that Hyundai will stay in our thoughts in years to come as we may be in need of a new vehicle.
It has been raining here in the Pacific Northwest part of America relentlessly for over a week now and is starting to get a bit tiresome. And although I am getting tired of it I also praise it as I understand the incredible need for water. When Springtime arrives I will certainly celebrate all of this rain by visiting many of the incredible natural waterfalls in this mountainous region.
I believe that the toughest part of all of this painful is working outside in it. At this time of year I am driving to work in the dark and driving home in the dark and with the added rain it gets pretty challenging at times. I am not only spend money on additional rain gear, but have also purchased a wide brim leather that that allows the water to fall around me rather than on me. I thought people wore hats like this out here to look cool, but have found out that they are simple a necessity. I use both hands while working outside and an umbrella just is not an option.
