History
MOVING FORWARD--Election Day 2012 (11/6/12) we picked up our new car.

When we first ordered this car, we were told by dealerships and HyundaiUSA that there were only ten (10) other cars like this in the US.

Modifications

Wheel and Tire
We ordered the turbo package, which promises "alloy wheels." Within two weeks, our right front wheel was damaged twice. The dealer told us that because of the "special alloy," the rim would have to be repaired by an outside source, who had to remove the tire from the rim and heat the rim in order to repair the scrape. The repair cost $150 and came back less-than-perfect, but whattayagonnado?

Within two days, a large chunk of translucent silver coating came off the rim, exposing black metal rims under a thin paint or plastic covering. It is my understanding that "alloy wheels" feature alloy metal that is solid the whole way through, not merely colored silver by a thin coating.

No matter what these wheels are made of, they are INFERIOR and we don't want them on our car.
