I forgot to mention one thing about those Hyundai forums. One of those guys will look up your warranty status for you if you send him your vin. Ask them there and do what they recommend. One thing with Hyundai I’ll give them is how well they work with most customers . They have good willed some engines wayyyy past cutoff. Sometimes it’s hit n miss but they often are quite accommodating when they have no reason to be. It’s sort of a crap shoot. Who knows, it might be worth the $150 diagnostic. See what those guys say on the Hyundai forum and cross your fingers.

SBR711 is the guy you're talking about I believe.

UPDATE

Picked the car up from the local Hyundai dealer. They were unable to duplicate the noise and I was present the second time they started the motor. I showed both service writers the video that they were in agreement that something is wrong. If they're able to duplicate the noise, they can submit paperwork to replace engine.

Wouldn't you know it, started the car this morning before work, and the knock was present!

Maybe they put two bottles of STP Treatment in it, to quiet it down, prior to your arrival for the 2nd time.

I'm not sure if the end of my reply requires a joke - a smilie - or a frownie attached..... shrug
I do know this! We cannot trust anyone these days, including a priest.

Unfortunately rod knock is common in these cars, poor metal quality and machining from Hyundai. If it were me I would get rid of that car while it still runs and has some value. In the mean time use a thicker synthetic high mileage oil.
