Anybody else have the top of their radiator housing crack? I smelled coolant while driving around today, but saw no signs of dripping. Took off the plactic cover over the top of the radiator and found a hair line split in the housing about 6 inches long that's slowly weeping coolant! I'm beyond the 60K mile warranty.

Well I guess from the lack of responses that it's not a common issue; I'm the lucky one with the lemon :3_saai:

Picked up an aftermarket radiator for $172 shipped and in stock. The best discount Hyundai price I found was $250 and had to be special ordered. It was a direct replacement and fit perfectly.

Yeah, I had the same happen about 6 months ago. Hairline crack right below the rad cap. Bought an autozone radiator, new stant rad cap and low temp thermostat, coolant, and water wetter for about $200. Everything was a direct swap...the new rad even came with fittings.
