Mazda's had the same problem but they seem to last a little longer.
The original regulator looks like some sort of polyurethane. But definitely a sub par material.
Whilst by Ganness Monday morning a man came in with a PDM Sportage and his regulator was also gone. He too also had to fix regulators before as well. I know Hyundai and Kia have their linkages so maybe its the same suppliers to both.
With regards to the firm though, as an example I know Diamond Motors had replaced the Fan Control Unit in all the local CS3 Lancers even those outside of the warranty period. Maybe Massy can do the same for the Hyundais (the Elantras also seem to have the same problem). Granted the numbers of Hyundais far exceed the number of Lancers but these window parts cheaper than the fan control unit.
But based on this windows issue (as well as the other ones I have had wrt the Tucson) for the time being Hyundai will not be seeing me and maybe Massy overall.
