I also have a 2007 GLS and I am experiencing a noise from the front right suspension. It sounds like a loose shock on one of my old chevy's. After a trip back to the dealer, I was told that the tech checked underneath and road tested the car and found nothing wrong. After 6K miles, I changed tires and still have the noise.

2007 Sonata has more than met expectations, except have to use Shift Lock unlock feature (requires screw driver) to go from park to drive. Happened alot at first couple thousand miles and now at 20,000.(Dealer so-so). Why would this happen?

Recently had a small leak in my tank...was around when it was removed...after repairing and putting it back up my fuel lid release switch from driver side does not work. Looked for the fuse for it with no luck on driver side and the engine... anyone with some info jhere?

I have a 07' Sonata and I have not had any of the problems listed here so far, but I did have my gas petal stick to the floor after about 9 months of drivin it everyday.One morning while driving i pressed down on the petal to get up to speed, just turning onto the road, when i let my foot off the petal it just stayed down and there was no way to get it to come back up. I kicked it and it only made it go farther to the floor,making me go even faster then i already was I tried to put my foot behind it and pull up, no luck. Pulled over with brakes and e-brake on and put car in nuetral and turned it off. The dealership told me it was my floor mat. Yet i myself moved my floor mat when they asked me over the phone if it was the floor mat and the gas petal remained pinned to the floor, a friend came to my car and also saw it right down to the floor with the floor mat no where close to the petal. 30 min later it simply popped back up on its own with no one touchin it and the car not running. After looking at the car they didn't find anything and assured me it must have been the floor mat. I refused to take my car back untill a specialist looked at it. They found an exposed wire (as everything is electrical now) which they thought might have shorted out, so they replaced my gas pettal and i got my car back. Thinking everything was fine about 2 week later my boyfriend was driving and it happened again, this time in a school zone (where u are suppose to drive 30 km/h , thats kind of hard when your pettal is stuck down)he put it in nuetral alot faster then i did because i was scraed and didn't know what to do at first. this time after 7 min at the side of the road he moved the floor mat and the pettal popped up on its own. I took it back to the dealership and after a week in the shop they said "It had to be the floor mat we couldn't find anything." i called mechanics and they told me to tell Hyundia to change an app switch i belive it was called or the modguel that controls the amount of fuel that goes to the engine. Hyundia told me they had no idea what a app switch was and that the modguel would not make the pettal stick. I asked them to look it up then later that day they called me and told me that they are not willing to spend anymore time on my car, and again saying it was the floor mat.?? i've had my car back for about 4 months now and nothings happend. Don't know if it was the exposed wire the first time and the floor mat the second ?
I have a 2008 Sonata and had almost the same exact thing happen and car right now is in Hyndai shop with timming chain problems thank god it only has 44,000 miles.
