    So in summary, you kept the car and got Hyundai to honour the warranty for the full term. The garage that charged you gave you a refund.

    Aren't you worried that Hyundai will blame future failures on this and not honour the warranty?

    Personally I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them now. But I do have an email from a manager at Hyundai UK saying the full warranty is unaffected. If there are any problems in the future I've taken out RAC legal protection, so I'll just kick it over to them to have the scrap. 

    If it was easy as sending the car back I'd do it in a heartbeat, but I've had enough now. The law says it should be but in reality we all know things are very different.

    I can't thank the people on here enough for all of their advice, if this had happened pre-internet I'd have stood no chance!

    It's a shame it got so far, but that wasn't of my choosing, you reap what you sow I guess. 

    He’s so wide he’d never fit the average Hyundai 😂

    I've just read a story in the Telegraph that's very, very similar to OP's story. In fact, I'm pretty sure it is the same story (not sure if I should post the link) :smile:
    Just about to say the same 👍
