    Great improvement by spraying undercoating in the wheel wells.

    Just remove the tires, take out the 8-10 plastic screw clips and remove the
    plastic inner fender liner.
    Stuff some newspaper in the areas you do not want overspray, (springs,
    hoses, Struts etc) and
    Spray 1 can of rubberized undercoating in each wheel well, allow to dry for
    1 hour or so and put it back together.

    Cuts the road noise by 50% at least! Cost about 6 bucks a can, and about 30
    minutes work,+1 hour waiting!

    Very happy and quite easy!

    So why couldn't Hyundai do this at the factory?

  3. Interesting suggestion on the undercoating. I will give it a try, but,
    ill add some 1/2" thick dense soundproofing insulation on top of the
    undercoating once its dry, before i put the plastic wheel well liner
    back on. Thanks for the tip.

  4. Simple. It costs money and they probably felt the vehicle was quiet
    enough without it.

  7. He's probably just cranky about making the mistake of buying a 20 mpg
    SUV and having to feed it gas that's over three bucks a gallon and is
    taking it out on the Koreans. Hopefully, this latest turn of events will
    be the final nail it the coffin of the mindless SUV craze.
