Consumer Location: MORGANTOWN, WV
VIN: KMHCT5AE9EU****

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT MY CAR IN FEB 2014, SINCE THAT THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) INDICATOR HAS COME ON SEVERAL TIMES WHILE DRIVING. WHEN THE ESC IS ON, THE OTHER INDICATORS AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT, ABS, PARKING BRAKE & BRAKE FLUID WARNING LIGHT, LOW TIRE PRESSURE TELLTALE AND ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING (EPS) INDICATOR WILL ALSO TAKE TURNS TO COME ON FOR A WHILE AND THEN OFF FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN BACK ON AGAIN. AFTER I RESTART, ESC LIGHT WILL STAY ON AND THE OTHER LIGHTS TAKE TURNS TO ON AND OFF. THIS WILL LAST SEVERAL DAYS AND THEN BACK TO NORMAL. THE WORST THING HAPPENED ON JUNE, 2015, AFTER THE LIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON AND OFF THE DAY BEFORE, THE ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING WAS LOST WHEN I STARTED MY CAR. AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT, ABS, PARKING BRAKE & BRAKE FLUID WARNING LIGHT AND EPS WERE ALL ON. I WAS TOTALLY IN SHOCK BY WHAT HAD HAPPENED SINCE I BASICALLY COULD NOT BACK OUT FROM THE PARKING LOT WITH THE STIFF STEERING. I RESTARTED SEVERAL TIMES AND COULD NOT WORK OUT. WHEN I FINALLY GOT TO DEALER, THE TECHNICIAN TURNED ON THE CAR, EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL. THEY TRIED TO GET A CODE FOR ME BUT NO CODE SHOWED ANY MALFUNCTION. SINCE THEN, I WAS DRIVING IN AFRAID THAT THIS MAY HAPPEN AGAIN AT ANY TIME AND I MAY LOSE CONTROL AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT.

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.

VIN: KMHCU4AE5EU****

Summary of Complaint

THIS CAR AND ITS SEAT HAVE GRADUALLY ERODED BY LOWER BACK AND SPINE. THE SEAT IS SHAPED IN AN SUCH A WAY THAT IT FORCES THE SPINE INTO AN UNNATURAL POSITION. WHEN FACTORING IN THE FACT THAT EVEN MINOR BUMPS IN THIS CAR CAUSE ITS WEAK SUSPENSION TO SEND VIBRATIONS THROUGHOUT THE SEAT, MY BACK HAS SUFFERED LONG LASTING DAMAGE. NO AMOUNT OF BUILT IN LUMBAR SUPPORT OR ADDED CUSHIONS HAS RESOLVED THIS ISSUE. IN ADDITION THE ONLY WAY TO GET ADEQUATE LEG ROOM IS TO HAVE THE SEAT BACK BUT THE POSITION OF THE STEERING WHEEL PULLS THE SHOULDERS FORWARD. THIS HAS RESULTED IN A GREAT AMOUNT OF PAIN AND PUTS THE SPINE IN A FURTHER VULNERABLE POSITION TO BE SUBJECTED TO VIBRATIONS FROM THE ROAD AND FORCES AN UNNATURAL SITTING POSITION. IN THE ATTACHED IMAGES, PLEASE NOTE THE POSITION AT WHICH THE STEERING WHEEL IS IN RELATION TO THE SEAT. IT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR A NATURAL BEND OF THE ELBOW. IN STEAD IT FORCES THE DRIVER TO KEEP THEIR ELBOW POINTED UP. THIS SEAT IS A CLEAR SAFETY VIOLATION, NOT JUST FOR MY BACK AND PHYSICAL WELL BEING BUT FOR THE SAFETY OF MYSELF AND OTHER DRIVERS. THIS CAR DOES NOT ALLOW FOR ME TO PROPERLY SEE THE ROAD AND HANDLE THE CAR AS I AM DRIVING. THE PHYSICAL PAIN AND DISCOMFORT IT CAUSES MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO CONCENTRATE ON THE ROAD. I OFTEN FEAR THAT IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THIS RESULTS IN A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.

Summary of Complaint

THE ENGINE 1ST STOPPED 2 WEEKS AGO AT A RED LIGHT. I SAY "STOPPED" BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IT DID "STOP," NO WARNING LIGHT OR SIGNAL. IT SIMPLY STOPPED. HAD TO GET PUSHED OFF THE ROAD. STARTED AFTER 15-20 MIN. TOOK IT TO MECHANIC, FOUND NOTHING WRONG. SENSORS, GAS, ELECTRIC. "I CANT DO NOTHING, NO SYMPTOMS." 2ND TIME IT STOPPED WHILE DRIVING. STILL ROLLING, I GUIDED THE VEHICLE OF THE ROAD. STARTED AFTER 10-15MIN. 3RD TIME AT A CONVENIENCE STORE CALLED THE FIRST MECHANIC HE SAID TO CALL HIM WHEN IT STOPPED AGAIN. HE COULD USE A PORTABLE GAGE WHILE IT WAS IN THE "STOPPED" STATE. BUT IT STARTED AGAIN BEFORE THE MECHANIC GOT THERE SO HE COULDN'T USE THE GAGE. I CALLED TO THE COMPANY WHERE I BOUGHT THE CAR. HE SENT ME TO THEIR LOCAL MECHANIC WHO DID THE SAME CHECK AS THE FIRST; SAW NO PROBLEM. LASTLY, IT STOPPED MULTI PAL TIMES IN 1 DAY. EVEN WHILE TURNING ONTO A TWO- LANE SIDE- STREET, IN HIGH TRAFFIC! OTHER CARS HAD TO STOP RIGHT BEHIND ME IN A TURNING POSITION AND GO AROUND. AGAIN HAD TO GET PUSHED OUT OF THE ROAD. I DON'T FEEL SAFE DRIVING THIS VEHICLE. THE COMPANY.. I BOUGHT IT WENT BEYOND THEIR POLICY AND HAD THEIR MECHANICS TO CHECK IT, STILL NOTHING. THIS IS THE 3RD WEEK. I DON'T TRUST THIS VEHICLE TO DRIVE IT SO, THE COMPANY IS SENDING IT TO A HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP TODAY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR EXPECT FROM THIS WHOLE ISSUE. I AM NOT SAFE IN THIS VEHICLE AND TO PAY ANYTHING OUT OF POCKET IS UNTHINKABLE. AS IT IS ONLY 4 YRS OLD. I GOT IT WHEN IT WAS 2 YRS OLD. THE WAY THE VEHICLE STOPS IS UNUSUAL. I DON'T KNOW CARS WELL BUT I HAVE NOT HEARD OF ONE TO "STOP" WITHOUT, "WARNING BEFORE HAND". IT STOPS AT INOPPORTUNE TIMES. THERE IS NO WAY OF TELLING WHEN OR WHERE IT WILL STOP. IT STOPS WHENEVER AND WHEREVER WITHOUT WARNING. CITY STREETS, HIGHWAYS. NOT SURE FREEWAYS; BUT IM NOT TAKING ANY CHANCES.PLEASE INVESTIGATE! THIS IS MY FIRST TIME BUYING A CAR. YUCK!

I HAVE ANALYZED THE TIRE AND THERE IS NO SIGN OF HITTING ANYTHING (POTHOLE, CURB, ETC) VERY DISPLEASED WITH THESE TIRES AND THE FACT THAT ITS $120+ FOR A TIRE THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN RECALLED.

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT MY HYUNDAI AROUND MARCH OR APRIL 2015. AFTER ABOUT A MONTH I NOTICED THAT THE ESC WAS COMING ON AND OFF. WHILE VISITING FAMILY IN FISHERS INDIANA IN AUGUST I NOTICED THAT NOT ONLY WAS THE ESC COMING BUT ALSO ALL THE OTHER WARNING LIGHTS I.E. ABS, AIR BAG, PARKING BRAKE AND EPS. ON AUGUST 17 I TOOK MY CAR TO THE NOBLESVILLE HYUNDAI DEALER. ON THE 18TH I WAS TOLD THAT THE PROBLEM WAS A NEGATIVE COMPONENT NOT GROUNDED AND WAS FIXED. ABOUT 1.5 WEEKS LATER THE PROBLEM RETURNED PLUS NOW THE LOW TIRE PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT WAS COMING ON. ON THE 31ST OF AUGUST I WENT BACK TO THE DEALER EXPLAINING THAT THE PROBLEM HAD RETURNED. AS OF SEPTEMBER 2 THEY STILL HAVE NOT DETERMINED WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. PICKED UP MY CAR ON SEPTEMBER 3RD AND WAS TOLD THAT SINCE THEY COULDN'T GET THE CAR TO ACT UP THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO SO I TOOK MY CAR. I'LL JUST HAVE TO SEE IF AND WHEN THE PROBLEM OCCURS AGAIN THEN TAKE IT STRAIGHT BACK TO DEALER.

Summary of Complaint

MY DAUGHTER RECENTLY PURCHASED (JAN 29 2015) A 2014 HYUNDAI/ ACCENT/ GLS, VEHICLE # [XXX] FROM HADDAD OF THE BERKSHIRE HADDAD HYUNDAI, 689 EAST STREET IN PITTSFIELD , MA 01201 THIS VEHICLE CAME EQUIPPED WITH 4 KUHMO TIRES (LOW PROFILE # [XXX] . WE HAVE HAD TO REPLACE TWO OF THE ORIGINAL TIRES THE DRIVER LEFT FRONT TIRE DEVELOPED A GIANT BULGE IN THE SIDEWALL (THE TIRE AND RIM HAVE NO INDICATION OF SCRAP ON THE SIDE ), WE ALSO NOTICED THE RIGHT REAR TIRE IS DEVELOPING A BULGE IN THE SIDEWALL. I JUST HAD THE LEFT FRONT DRIVERS TIRE REPLACED AT THE ORIGINAL DEALER HADDAD OF THE BERKSHIRE HADDAD HYUNDAI, 689 EAST STREET IN PITTSFIELD , MA 01201 . UPON REVIEW WITH SERVICE ASSOCIATE THEY DETERMINED THE TIRES ARE NOT FAULTY AND ARE NOT COVERED AS WARRANTY. I FEEL DIFFERENTLY ABOUT THIS ISSUE, THREE PROBLEMS WITH TIRES ON A CAR LESS THAN OLD LEAVES ME WONDERING ABOUT THE KUMHO TIRES AND THE TIRES COMPATIBILITY AND ABILITY TO PERFORM ON THIS HYUNDAI ACCENT. DEALERS COMMENTS" I REVIEWED YOUR EMAIL WITH [XXX] , OUR SERVICE DIRECTOR AND WE ALSO SPOKE TO [XXX] AT HYUNDAI. THIS BULGING CONDITION ON THE TIRES IS CONSIDERED A ROAD HAZARD WHICH IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY. IT IS CAUSED BY POT HOLES AND WHEN THEY ARE HIT, IT BREAKS THE SIDE WALL STEAL BELT. THIS CAUSES THE BULGE WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL POP. THE TIRES ARE ALSO A LOWER PROFILE TIRE. " IT APPEARS TO ME THERE IS A DEFECT WITH THESE TWO TIRES THAT BULGED OUT, KEEP IN MIND THE RIMS AND TIRES IN QUESTION HAVE NO SCRAPS OR DENTS.. IN MY OPINION THE KUMHO TIRES / DESCRIPTION [XXX] LOW PROFILE POSE A SERIOUS HAZARD TO ANY VEHICLE THAT IS EQUIPPED WITH THEM DUE TO THE ABILITY TO DAMAGE UNDER NORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS. IF AN UNSUSPECTING OPERATOR HITS A CURB OR HOLE THESE TIRES CAN BLOWOUT. INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *TR
