HI I WENT TO MY HYUNDAI DEALER TODAY FOR WHAT APPEARED TO BE A RE-OCCURRING FLUID LEAK ON THE TRANSFER CASE SEAL, FRONT PASSENGER SIDE OF THE VEHICLE. I WAS TOLD THIS TIME THAT THE LEAK WAS CAUSED BY A VENT TUBE LOCATED AT THE TRANSFER CASE. THE TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN REFERENCED BY THE SERVICE ADVISOR STATES THAT THE FLUID WILL ONLY APPEAR DURING VERY COLD TEMPERATURES. THIS SEEMS TO BE WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW ,WITH MY VEHICLE. MY ISSUE IS THAT IN ORDER TO STOP THIS FLUID LEAK,THE DEALER TELLS ME THAT THE TRANSFER CASE VENT TUBE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED WITH A REDESIGNED UNIT. I AM ALSO TOLD THAT THIS NEW UNIT WILL NOT BE REPLACED UNDER THE POWER TRAIN WARRANTY. I ASKED WHY NOT?? IF THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW ON HYUNDAI'S PART ,HYUNDAI SHOULD RECALL THE AFFECTED VEHICLES AND INSTALL THE NEW VENT TUBE UNIT AT THERE COST,NOT THE CONSUMERS'. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY $224.32 PARTS AND LABOR TO CORRECT AN ISSUE THAT IS DEFINITELY A DESIGN FLAW THAT OCCURRED FROM HYUNDAI. PLEASE RESPOND ACCORDINGLY KENNETH JOHN BASTA
