Did anyone get one of these Hyundai Salt Belt Corrosion Class Action Settlement Center things in the mail?

It's 15 pages!

Basically people want to get money back if they've had to pay for the things that were part of the recall if they had them fixed before the recall. I guess.

Maybe this will help some of you fellow EXDers, although I think most were taken care of under warranty/recall from the threads I remember.

Please forgive my stupidity, what is salt belt corrosion? Does that have to do with steering or alignment? I searched around and that is what I am finding related to that.

as a car owner in pittsburgh, where we have more winter than summer. the thought of having rust proofing, undercarriage coating etc. has never even crossed my mind. is that my fault? maybe.. but i assume when i buy a car its going to last like it should, and i feel like i shouldnt have to do all kinds of extra stuff just to keep it going.

ill have to keep an eye on the mailbox..

That is what people also assume about their paint jobs here in FL so they never protect or wax their car, then in a few years the clear coat starts to fade away. Then they wonder why that happened.

I'm sure you can find some of the threads here with pictures that show parts rusted completely out/through. A 7-9 year old car shouldn't have these problems.

And Hyundai agrees or they wouldn't have done the recall. It's not that people are trying to get extra money (from what I can tell with a brief look at the mail/site), it's just that some people paid for repairs before the recall came out and want their money back. Understandably.

Before the car was passed down to me, my dad took it in and did the recall on mine. Regardless, she's clean for 272,xxx KMs and 10 Canadian winters.

lower control arms are usually not an area you would ever rust proof. The issue was a defect on the way they were welded that let water get in and not drain, causing them to rust out.

I've had my car through 9 winters in Delaware, and my car doesn't look bad at all.

They looked at mine and said it was fine. I wasn't so sure, so I looked for myself, and they look really good. No signs of rust at all.

While I was driving with my 3 children in the car the A arm snapped! 5 minutes prior we were on the interstate doing 65mph! When the A arm broke the passanger side of the car hit the ground, my tire blew from a bolt piercing the tire! It was the loudest scariest thing I have ever heard! It sounded like we had been hit by an 18wheeler! I had not recieved any info regarding the recall(s) for the A arm and subframe! Which also when the A arm snapped it completely bent the Subframe. Luckily my father in law happened to call our local Hyundai dealership for a part, he was then informed of the recall! We ended up by having it all replaced but from the A arm breaking we had to pay for parts that the A arm damaged! Which I just feel is wrong. My car just hasn't been the same at all since the damage was done. I'm nervous to drive it to be honest! I'm reading all the above comments and not seeing anything like our experience! I thank god however that when the breakage did happen we were only doing 30-35 mph. because this could have been deadly!

That is not going cause catastrophic damage and possibly cause a crash. There are pictures here that showed what happened to one person car here.

i got it a few weeks ago and when i took my car to the dealer i got a new subframe and both lower control arms=]
I just had mine done from Monday to Wednesday this week. I have 160,000 miles on my car, .. did not realize how sloppy it had gotten.

While it was in, I also needed a transmission mount [PN 21930-2D151 : Bracket ASSY-ROLL STOPPER R](Humm that is why it vibrated at a stop light, then would stop if I put it in neural) :confused:

The front end links were worn [54830-2D00 : LINK ASSY -FR STABILIZER] {they were 37.48 Ea}, got them replaced (the dealer was nice & since it had to come out, the did not charge extra for installing them) :) :tongue:

While it was torn apart I had them put in Poly front Sway bushing (had looked into it before for the GT they were either 24 or 25 mm bar, the GLS is 23 mm)
I lucked out Advance Auto have a 25 mm bushing set [Energy Suspension P/N: 9.5151R] on the wall. :bowdown: I figured 1 mm would not be noticeable if I was wrong

Since it was in the air an they had the power tools I had them put in the 19 mm poly bushing [Energy Suspension P/N 9-5156R] in the rear. :laugh:

It rides like a new car again... :laugh: Ready for the next 160,000 miles

Yup, last Thursday (the 6th) I stopped by & made an appointment (for Monday the 10). They told me that if it need parts it would be an extra day. I told them take their time. they took one extra day but it gave me time to get the extra bushing
