I have an original '04 GT Elantra with 38,000 mi and they will not
honor any warranty on anything so far! They tell me most everything is
only 36000 mi. warranty. Paint is peeling off, stereo dials turns up
the volume when turning down, sun-roof leaks etc etc etc. They tell me
it is supposed to leak. ;-)

At the risk of sounding callous - that's the way warranties work. They only
cover what is specified in the warranty agreement. Kinda sucks, when
something like paint fails, but that's the way it is. I guess the upside is
that you can be glad the real warranty coverage hasn't been needed.
Yes that is the way warranties work. However, if you first report an
issue prior to the expiration, they will usually honor it past the
warranty period if they weren't able to address it adequately prior to
warranty end. Were all of the problems listed above things that cropped
up in just the last 2000 miles? That seems incredulous to me, but I
guess anything is possible.
