    The 10yr/100K powertrain warranty is gone unless you bought the car
    from a family member. Your warranty would be limited to what is left
    of the 5yr/60K bumper-to-bumper.

    Xo Xo,

    No advice about the dash light, but if you're not turning it on and off
    with the switch then you have a problem (a little humor).

    The gas filler is an easier situation. If you experiment with the
    position of the nozzle when you are filling you will find that at
    certain angles the nozzle will fill at full flow, while at other angles
    it will shut off almost immediately. That is because of the shape of
    the filler neck from the fender to the tank. You will find the right
    position and then it will be OK.

    Owner's manuals are auctioned on eBay all the time. Also the full OEM
    service manuals are on eBay at a small fraction of their cost from the
    dealer. If you want touch up paint that actually matches then the
    dealer is the best bet. It's only a few dollars in any case so you
    might as well get the real stuff.

    Good luck,

    The solution in this case is for the shop to buy an extended warranty
    from Hyundai for the 100,000 miles.
