Hey guys. Really excited as I just got my Hybrid Premium 2 days ago. Lovin it - and proud to show off with it. :)
Today I had a full car load of passengers - we're getting in and out frequently, when all of a sudden, the rear passenger side door wont open from the inside.
I'm in Park - all the door locks are open - no one messed with the child safety thingy - it's off, and the door just wont open from inside - only from outside.
I've tried opening and closing with the button on my door (driver door) multiple times, opening and closing the lock on the affected door multiple times - no avail. Checked the manual, but it dosent have a solution for that, exept mentioning the child safety lock - not on.
Any ideas? Planning to take it in soon as I can, but wondering if there's some easy fix I can do myself without crazy tools. I live hour and half away from where I bought it.

Nope - haven't felt that. it drives really well.

Just wondering how come after my first fuel re-fill it seems as if the MPG went wayy low and I'm at half tank much faster than on the dealer fill-up.
Oh well. Still trying to get used to it. Will be stopping by the dealer closer to me today - driving 150 miles to get my door looked at is kinda hard.
And will be making a calculation of miles used on this tank at next fill-up.

new CEL recall

FFwd to today (Tuesday August 2, 2011) finally took it to the dealership in my area. It just so happened that when I turned it on this morn at about 580 miles the CEL came on - I was already on the way to the dealership about the door thing, so I figured - great timing. They checked it and said there was recall that came up in reference to that CEL light and it was about a software upgrade relating to the "display"? Not sure - he didn't go into any details and I didn't have a chance to ask - they were jam packed there this morn. So if any of you know of or have heard of factory recall # TG2 I'd like to know more. The guy at the Hyundai place said that was the first he was hearing of that one. As for the door - they claimed the ordered a new door handle and will call me when it comes in - should be by about Thursday (2 days from now)
