WHITE PEARL ELANTRA-PAINT ISSUES ON PLASTIC SURFACES
By mary151 on
2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
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
I have owned several Hyundais in the past and I bought this one mostly for its look.
The paint issue and the cloth material the upholstery is made of needs to go. The stains keep coming back every three months.
