Blue Link Sucks!

Over priced and the remote start was unreliable. Other functions worked. I dropped it after the trial period and had aftermarket remote start installed.

Blue Link may know, but we didn't until you told us in the other thread.
My advice would be to call the main Hyundai customer assistance number (800 -633-5151) and express your frustrations there. They may be able to influe nce the people at Blue Link more than you can. At the very least, I'd thin k they'd be able to contact someone in management at Blue Link to make sure you at least got a call.
I do tend to agree with Ed, though, that the usefulness is small compared t o the price. Unless the monthly price is an insignificant amount of money to you, I doubt you'll think it's worth it.

It was announced that the 2015 Sonata will have Google powered BlueLink with more features. Now all the have to do is cut the price in half.

I purchased a 2014 Tuscan Limited in January. My Bluelink remote service ha s never worked. I'm now dealing with Hyundai to get them out of my current lease and into a car that actually has working features. They've sent multi ple engineers out to look at my car and can't find the problem. The dealer in my area has had 4 cards of different models having the same issue. Bluel ink sucks and I'm starting to think Hyundai is just as bad!

BlueLink does suck, I don't use it and did not go past the "free" period. Everything else works just fine and I'm happy with my Turbo Sonata.

I never found OnStar to be worth the money either. BlueLink has a few good features, but not worth the price. The remote start was a PITA as you had to turn on your phone first, then be sure the doors were locked, then finally send the "start" signal. I had a regular remote start installed and it works well.

Yes, pretty hard to use your phone if it isn't turned on. Shame on GM for not making a way for OnStar to read your mind and turn your phone on for you when you think about starting your vehicle. How could they have missed this???
I can start with my key fob if in range, but I can start from anywhere with my iphone or ipad. :-)

By the time I turned on the phone, started the app, enter the pass code, then started the car, the fob starter would have it up to temperature. I like to keep the number of steps minimal at 6 AM. Push a button for 3 seconds and it starts. And it does not cost $200 a year.
I have navigation in my car. They have a method that allows yu to use your computer to search for POI when planning a trip, then they can be sent to the car to add to the address book. Nice feature, but that is another $100 a year. Sorry, but I'm not paying $300 when most features I'd not use.

The phone and ipad app isn't meant to replace the fob when you are in fob range. My office is WAY out of fob range from the parking area, but not out of range of cell towers and satellite. They give you two tools for two different situations. Works for me.

Both is good. BlueLink does not give you a fob though, just a clunky way to start. At work my car is just outside my window so I can almost throw the fob at it. Not sure what the real distance is, but they advertise like a 1/4 mile or something outlandish under perfect conditions.

I'm curious how long your tires will last. My 2014 Elantra's two rear tires needed replacing after about 25k miles; and we are very "easy" drivers.

Did you check out the alignment? Wear pattern? Rear tires tend to last much longer than front on FWD cars, but the are prone to cupping and get noisy and rough riding.
I've been careless in the past, but tire rotation really is important.

That is exactly what I was expecting: that the front drive tires would wear out sooner. Now they have 37k miles on them and they are still fine.
That's exactly what happened to us. What causes "cupping" in rear tires?

Seems very common in FWD cars. While is is blamed on camber, shocks, struts,bad karma, I'm just thinking it is too light in the rear allowing bad wear patterns. Proper rotations helps. My last Sonata tires lasted about 40,000 miles with even wear. I had a Buick where I did not rotate the tires and the rear lasted about 50,000 miles and I could no longer stand the noise.
