Peeling stick shift?


Asked by Jan 24, 2012 at 12:48 PM about the Hyundai Elantra Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Has anyone had the experience of the stick shift peeling?  The silver material that covers the stick shift has begun to peel.  It actually deeply cut my finger when it started.  How does one repair this?

i work at a hyundai dealership and have seen a couple come in with this complaint. simply take it to the dealer and they will replace the shifter knob for you. its covered for 5 years 60,000 miles

Thanks - I did just that. They had to order the shifter knob, of course. But they are replacing it with no probs.

No problems with this, or anything else for that matter.

I have had the same issue I'm taking my third shifter back now everyone I have had has done it they take it back no problem also I have had my steering wheel replaced from the black wearing off on my hands ??
