Summary of Complaint

Las luz de ABS comenzó a verse encendida en el Dashboard en ocasiones la de ABS junto a la de Emergencia. Lleve el auto a inspeccionar en el diagnostico resultó que el problema posiblemente podría estar en el HECU. Me indican que lo llevara en esos días porque al ser algo complejo tomaria tiempo asi verificar con exactitud que era lo que estaba haciendo que me encendieran las luces para entonces ser remplazado. Antes de poder llegar el dia para poder verificarlo salgo a hacer una diligencia y al regresar a mi casa se encienden las luces nuevamente seguido por un ruido al presionar el pedal de frenos. Me estaciono frente a mi casa al rato salgo a buscar el papel del diagnostico que me habían dado que lo había dejado guardado en la víscera del carro y me percato que se escuchaba algo encendido aún ya con el carro apagado. Procedo a abrir la cajuela y me percato que esa pieza de HECU seguía encendida y sonando. Se procede a quitarle los poros de la batería para que apagara, cuando hace una chispa eléctrica seguido por fuego. Poniendo la vida de mi hija, de mi mamá y mía en peligro. Actúe rápidamente ya que vivo en un apartamento busqué el extintor de fuegos que me proveen y procedo a apagarlo. Luego de apagado el fuego encontramos una tapa que entiendo que es de el modulo de ABS (envie foto de la misma). La experiencia fue horrible pues esto me pudo haber pasado en la calle y pudo ser un incidente desgraciado ocacionando perdida de vidas y perdida total de mi auto. El percance ocurrió bien tarde en la noche que pude haberme acostado a dormir y levantarme cuando escuchara el carro explotar, gracias a Dios regresé al auto a buscar el papel y no paso a mayores.

Summary of Complaint

The Hyundai accents from 2007-2015 seem like they are all experiencing the same electrical issue from the reviews I’ve seen on Google. The car literally shuts off while you are driving and the problem can’t be fixed. That is very dangerous to be driving and out of nowhere the car Dash board lights come on and the car shuts off. I recently had multiple repairs done on my vehicle and none of the repairs corrected the problem.

Summary of Complaint

The engine started burning oil at about 105,000 miles, despite it never missing an oil change and never abused. Apparently other Hyundais and Kia’s have also experienced early engine failure due to the manufactures poor quality control. It’ll burn about a quart of oil about every 1,500 miles. The engine has about 127,000 miles on the odometer.

Summary of Complaint

While driving to work one day i noticed my oil light flashing. So after work i took my car to Pep Boys to see what was going on with it and why my oil light was flashing. Mechanic asked me to bring it back on Saturday when he can take a better look at why it was flashing. After he did a diagnostics on my vehicle he said he couldnt find anything besides that the engine is burning oil and they couldnt figure out why or where it was that was causing this problem. Told me that i should check my oil everyday to see if its low and fill it if it does get low. My vehicle has 140,000 miles on it and this is the first time any of the flashing lights on the dashboard have come on.

Summary of Complaint

ON 2/11/21, I WAS DRIVING NORTH ON I294 WHEN I SUDDENLY LOST ACCELERATION. I HAD SEVERAL NEAR MISSES WITH A SEMI AND THE VEHICLES BEHIND ME. I PULLED OVER, CHECKED THE VEHICLE AND DID NOT FIND AN ISSUE. I WENT BACK ON THE ROAD AND THEN THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BEGAN FLASHING. I TOOK THE CAR INTO THE SHOP, WHERE IT WAS FOUND TO HAVE A BAD CATALYTIC CONVERTER, SPARK PLUGS, AND IGNITION COILS. THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED OVER TIME. IT WAS VERY QUICK. I HAD THE PARTS REPLACED. 700 MILES LATER, ON 2/25/21, THE SAME EXACT THING HAPPENED. AGAIN, VERY CLOSE TO WRECKING AND CAUSING A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT. I TOOK THE CAR IN AGAIN, AND THEY WERE SHOCKED TO FIND THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER HAD MELTED. PER MECHANIC, IT IS DUE TO SERVICE BULLETIN 428 AND 429. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE AREA FOR ADDING SPEED, AND ONE AREA FOR DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE. THIS OCCURED WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, AND CONTINUED UNTIL THE CAR WAS TAKEN TO THE SHOP, TWICE, ON TWO DIFFERENT DATES.
