Called Hyundai and got an answering saying that my 2003 Santa Fe's rear lower arms are not included in the recall.

How are the 2011 and 2012 years holding up as far as corrosion is concerned?
Also drive on salted roads. Some places are using Magnesium chloride on the roads and that stuff is murder on even painted parts. Just purchased a 2013 new and would like to know what to expect.

Thanks for the update.
So far the new 2013 Tucson is performing well. Really lots of road noise, but Appears to be the tires because on certain roads the noise is almost gone. There appears to be a good amount of undercoating and noise suppression stuff under the vehicle, but they also overlooked a lot too !! We should be getting some snow soon and we'll see if the tires are worth the noise.

Default Salt belt state

They should see the amount of salt laid down on our roads in the winter up here in the mountains.

How did you get them to approve NC? Iím in VA and my 2005 just failed inspection because of the corrosion. I have an appt the 22nd at dealership for the recall.
