To all 2017+ 2.0L Elantra owners

Do current owners that are in a climate of -4DegC (-24DegF) or below.. Can you perform the same test as per the video and report back?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aj0INpNrbg0&t=15s

It has to be from a cold start..

Thank you all!

Weird. Definitely a heat issue. That's definitely not normal.

Don't wanna sound rude, but good luck finding someone @ -24F or colder at the moment with a 2017 + 2.0 Elantra on here and than asking them to do such a test.

My VW: 6 F outside, 166.6 F from the front vents, 141 F from the rear passenger center console vent*, didn't measure the vents under the seats, 116 F at chin level.

*rare feature in a small car to have rear passenger vents for AC and heat.

I'm pretty sure you meant 24 F or below, not -24.

We've gotten to 0F in the mornings once or twice and had nary an issue with the car's water temperature. Heat on defrost, full blast.

I'd follow Scotty Kilmer's advice and not buy Korean cars.

Make sure you follow his practices for being under cars.

Pretty common issue up here in Canada.
I've had similar issues with a 97 Escort as well as our last 07 Ford Focus.
Basically in winter, the heater will only push out tepid heat (at best).

Over Christmas my spouse and I rented a 2017 Jetta with the 1.4 gas and turbo engine. When driving downhill, you could observe the temp guage dropping all the way down to C (cold) when the temps were hovering around -18C or 0f. Same issue as your Hyundai.

I compare that to any other car I've owned including the Lexus (or BMW) in my sig that will basically cook you out of the car if the heater is left on the highest heat (not fan) setting. Actually on the Lexus there's a common complaint of cracking/popping sounds when the heat is on high in cold weather (mine does this too). Nothing wrong, just something you notice.

in conclusion, if you want a better heater, buy a better car.

Or perhaps learn to diagnose such an issue and recognize it as a problem instead if dismissing it as normal because the car is cheap.

No.

Either pony up the coin for a better car or stop complaining.

Don't be silly, the elantra is not a crummy car, and its probably just a bad thermostat. OP I will have my son watch his next time its that cold here( he has a 17 elantra 2.0 mpfi). My 13 1.8 does not do that.
