Dealership called Hyundai technicians. Was told to change timing chain and many other parts. I’m going to be driving this loaner for at least a week. Wished they’d at least delivered it with a full tank of gas. It’s a bit more thirsty than my 1.8L Elantra. This Elantra GT is the 173 hp 2.0L DI engine.

Victim, check out the Hyundai Kona with the 1.6 L turbo engine and 7-speed DCT transmission. That is the second car I ever owned in a lifetime I always want to take out for no reason at all, just for the sheer fun of driving it.
The first was the VW GTI,(and not to forget the Kawasaki GPZ 1100, which wasn't a car though.)

Just return it with the same amount of gas when they gave it to you they are not going to pay for the gas you use.

Update. Picked up my car at 6pm today. Below is a list of parts they replaced. Iím writing the part names as they appear on the invoice. The dealer called the techline and were told to replace the CVVT, front cover, and oil pump.

They replaced TENSIONER ASSY-TI, COVER ASSY-TIMING, CVVT ASSY-EXHAUST, PULLEY-DAMPER, CHAIN-TIMING, & GASKET-ROCKER COV. All above replaced under warranty. No charge on parts and labor. Any idea how much this would cost, parts and labor, if not warranty covered?

A butt load just in labor alone parts not as bad as labor.

You would be more worried about a cosmetically significant issue than potentially major engine problems???

Warranty or not dealing with an unreliable or disabled vehicle is a hassle at best.

Update. Day after receiving my car back the check engine light came on and took two tries to start. Took back to dealership. They gave me a 2019 Hyundai Elantra as a loner with 17 miles on the car. Went back to the dealership this morning to get an update and tags for the loaner. The problem was it would not keep the timing and now theyíre re-ordering another new variable valve timing system again. Looks like Iíll be without my car for at least a month soon.

Update. While I was sleeping for the night shift the dealership brought me back my car and picked up the loaner (I just filled up the gas tank this morning on the way home from work). Wonít celebrate until after Iíve driven it for a few trouble free days. Even though I was driving a brand new 2019 Hyundai Elantra, I really missed my 2015 Elantra. Donít like the front end styling of the new Elantra and the new Elantra they loaned to me didnít have certain options I got with my Elantra. I even miss those little imperfections mod my Elantra.
