Hey everyone hope all is well! Just have a few questions regarding a Venue:
I bought a brand new 2022 SEL at the end of June.
Is there any way to get LED bulbs like the denim/limited trim? (you know, the ones that were deemed the top safety pick because of the then LOL) I have used aftermarket custom LEDs in the past with another car, but it never passed inspection because of that. And speaking of lights, does anyone鈥檚 Venue鈥檚 light project in a way that is like triangular if that makes sense? Like the two lights going in into each other like two lines coming in to a point, instead of straight ahead?

Is it normal for the Venue to have a spasm when I try and record something while music is playing? Like the audio and everything gets real bad sounding? 馃槀

((this is my first time making any type of threat on a discussion website so help))

What state are you in? It is strange that one's choice of bulbs would make it fail. That's government overstretching. If anything, they should encourage someone to improve the safety of their vehicle.

Maybe see if the Hyundai dealer will install LED lights into your Venue. Might be cheaper to do it aftermarket though like at a local Korean car specialist shop. I hope it doesn't void out your warranty though.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Venue. What color is it?

I鈥檓 in the U.S, and Virginia. It鈥檚 just that the limited trims only made the 鈥淚IHS top safety pick鈥 in America because they have like premium LED lights haha I don鈥檛 know why the other trips don鈥檛, I definitely feel like I need more light to my lights! I will definitely try to talk someone about warranty and modifications though.
I have the scarlet red pearl!

The headlights on the Venue trims that have replaceable incandescent bulbs use a shutter to switch from low beam to high beam instead of a dual filament bulb. The shutter closes part way, using a dc motor inside the headlamp, for low beam which makes the light cut in a straight line at the top of the pattern.
In the LED type headlamp the bulbs are not replaceable. These custom assemblies are what made them a 鈥淚IHS top safety pick鈥. Not sure replacing incandescent bulbs would have the same impact.
In Virginia the law says if your car came with halogen bulbs replacements must be halogen, LED lamps will cause a fail because they don't meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

OHH gosh, thank you for that information. I appreciate it! I guess I should just stick it out then or just keep switching the bulbs for inspection 馃槀

Another option is to install some auxiliary aftermarket LED lighting perhaps mounted on the roof rack (front) or down below under the front bumper where fog lights would traditionally be, I recently saw a Toyota Corolla with some aftermarket Hella lighting mounted on the front between the bumper and the grille. The lights had covers on them and looked professionally installed. They did sorta stick out like a sore thumb.

That's if you need this lighting for things like driving in rural areas with no street lights. If you're mainly driving in urban areas it might be illegal to have this extra lighting installed.

On the 2022 Venues, you have to step up to the Limited ($1,500 more) for the LED lights. Mine is a 2021. You had to buy the Premium Package to get the LED on the SEL. Can't remember the price. I think it was $750-$1,000? It was standard on the Denim trim. I probably would've ordered it if I knew it was a lot better.

or come up to Canada and get the Ultimate or other models where more things are standard and many options are standard and some different exteriors as well and the US dollar will buy more Canadian dollars which makes it cheaper to buy a Venue in Canada with US bucks...check the site

the only thing buying a Canadian model might be a no no because in the past many Americans were doing this with many different manufactures because the US dollar went further and the dealerships in the US were complaining and refusing to honor warranties...you'll see the US warranty is longer than in Canada but Canadians can have the longer warranty if they buy the extra warranty...kind of a catch 22. 馃し鈥嶁檪锔

Here are the hoops involved in importing a car into the United States. Cars made in Canada have 0% duty charged. Duty of 2.5% is charged on a car and 25% on a truck.There may be other fees and/or state taxes that would become due when the car is registered in the USA.

Yeah it's amazing the differences. In Canada, the Trend Urban edition, is the one recommended by a Hyundai salesman in Ontario who does YouTube videos.

It has as standard the LED lights, heated seats, and heated mirrors. But it doesn't have the lane keep assist function or the automatic climate control feature. I don't even think I'd want the lane keep assist if I lived in an area with bad weather as I am sure the snow and ice would mess it up. Though here in Ohio our weather is about as bad as southern Ontario as we're only like 200 kilometers away.

yeah here we have some good optioned out models for an individuals needs...I picked the Ultimate mainly because it's my daily driver and will be outside in the weather 24/7 year round, and my daily drivers for the last 50 years have lasted 20+ years before I got another, and I liked the fact that the Ultimate has it all and I especially liked the look of it like the nicer grill, and I wanted the disc. brakes all around and the tires and wheels and the Denim option, and because I keep my cars for a very long period of time, I wanted a vehicle that I could live with for that amount of time...of course some of this stuff can also be optioned at extra cost on the other models as well.

the other things I liked is the upgraded entertainment with the great sound system for this grade of car and once you get the heated seats and steering wheel you never want to go back, and the other little things like in Canada the lights on the side are in the mirrors and I first thought the lights that come on when you make a turn were going to be window dressing till recently I was driving in an area where the only lighting was from my Venue and those lights did a good job lighting up the side of the road where I was turning to.

I think the reason for many vehicles that are different in Canada than the same models in the US are things that Canadians want the heated seats, steering wheel, and mirrors and many want the all wheel drive, so I figure the Canadian dealerships want the manufactures to make much of this as standard equipment, and if the vehicles that go down the assembly lines are getting these options, it must help keep the manufacturing costs down which make the models in the dealerships more attractive to buyers and for the costs.

things like the lane keep assist wasn't one of the things I'd want to pay for but it came with the model and the good part about it is that I can turn it off or on, but I believe it's technology is mixed in with the other safety stuff..and for sure the LED lighting is a must, and I like the auto high beam which works much better than I thought it would.

for sure these Venues are a great buy no matter which model people get.
