WHITE PEARL ELANTRA-PAINT ISSUES ON PLASTIC SURFACES
By mary151 on
Vehicle
2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
Review
I own a 2011 white pearl Elantra. The paint of the front bumper is a different shade of white than the side panels. Positively more yellow and less pearly. The dealer and Hyundai Motor representatives acknowledge the problem (fading) but states that my issue is, I quote: "consistent amongst all similar vehicles". In plain English :"we are aware of the problem but since nobody complains you'd better live with it". It is absolutely abnormal to observe this situation on a less than 2 years old car and the problem seems to get worst overtime...same problem started on door handles and rear bumper
Favorite Features
I have owned several Hyundais in the past and I bought this one mostly for its look.
Suggested Improvements
The paint issue and the cloth material the upholstery is made of needs to go. The stains keep coming back every three months.

have you noticed the poor paint on the trunk? we have the same car as you in pearl white. if you pop the trunk open look at the seam right above the licence plate where the fold is between the tail lights,, Right above that,, looks grey to you doesn't it.. :) that's primer / very thin paint.. we took it to Hyundai and they were shocked,, then we looked at other cars in different colours on there lot all brand new.. every single one of them had this problem.. And The dealer took pictures of there cars on the lot as well as ours, They repainted our whole trunk. I checked three different dealers and every car at every lot had poor paint in this spot,,
