Lovely car to drive but had reliability issues

Bought this car at auction with 10k miles. All was fine but there were small black dots appearing on the rear bumper. I ignored these as they were small and hard to spot.
Took the car to France in 2019 and the car started to smell and pour white smoke ito the passenger cabin. Took it to a dealer in Poitiers who fitted a new injector.
All was fine until late 2019 when the same thing happened (in the UK this time), the car was off the road for a week but fixed under warranty.
Early 2020 we were driving, pulling a caravan, when the car went into limp home mode making it very difficult to drive.
Once again it was recovered to a dealer who diagnosed a split upper intercooler pipe. This was replaced, along with the turbo, under warranty.
In August 2020, during the 37 degree summer, the paint started to peel from the rear bumper. This was reported to Hyundai who, after nearly two months deliberation decided that this was not a manufacturing warranty item and suggested that some had run into me in a car park. This despite the fact that the paint had come off whilst the car was on my drive and i was using our other car.
