I had almost the same problems with my 1999 sonata. Especially w/ the paint, door locks, window and clock.

Ditto to all of the above. My latest problem is my car seems to be killing alternators. On my third one in about six months. My husband isn't sure what the problem is. I'm tired of being stranded out in the Arizona heat. Can't wait till I finish school and can buy a new car. I will not be buying a Hyundai anything.
