The Elantra will randomly stall out while driving. What happens is that the CVVT solenoid relies on clean oil and when it's not clean the solenoid related the timing so much that the engine stalls out, usually on deceleration or when coming to a stop. This happened to me in the past. It requires you to change the oil and filter at short intervals to avoid the problem. It's a safety because it stalls out on the road and you need to put it in park or neutral to restart it.

Around the end of 2019 is when I purchased my vehicle. Mid 2020 is when the issue first started. The paint first came off in a big chunk on the right side of the hood, then an even bigger chunk on the left. Now it's moved up to the roof of my vehicle and I dont think it's stopping any time soon. Initially I assumed maybe I did something wrong until I saw multiple other Elantras with the same exact issue. Now I know Hyundai is at fault

Rear passenger side door has become inoperable. This poses a safety risk as you cannot exit the vehicle from that side if an emergency arises. This is a common problem with this vehicle and should have a recall issued by now. The door opening mechanism has become damaged due to poor design, as this is a common problem mentioned all over the internet. This latch costs $1200, but was inoperable within only 4 years.

I own a 2017 Hyundai Elantra Pearl White color. The car has around 40,000 miles on it, and I have paint peeling issues on the hood and the roof. I don't think car paints should peel off this easily. Considering the amount of peeling, I don't think this is natural wear and tear issue. I heard from someone that Hyundai's water based paints had some issues, but since the company is not speaking up for his matter, it is difficult to know what the actual problems are. I would expect Hyundai to step up and deal with this issue :(

The engine is currently consuming oil at a rapid rate. Yes, it is available for inspection. The car has stalled out because the car is consuming oil thereby hurting the engine. The issue was confirmed by the dealer but they are refusing to help. Yes, the car has been inspected by Hyundai and also by an independent, licensed mechanic. The warning lamps only just recently occured. Upon research, my independent, licensed mechanic confirmed this was a known issue. Hyundai declined to assist on multiple occasions.

Hyundai Elantra 2017 just starts shaking. First time it happened when I turned on the car (check engine light came on but went off again after restarting it). Second time it started shaking while driving on highway and almost caused an accident. I pulled off and restarted car and shaking stopped. Both cases the engine light came on but didn’t stay on for me to get it checked. I believe this to be a very common problem. Hearing a lot about faulty coils and spark plugs that lead to much worse problems. Also, both back doors will not open. I’ve been told this is due to a bad plastic part inside door that commonly breaks. Hyundai will not take responsibility for either. This is very unfortunate and causing a ton of problems for many people!

While sitting at a busy red light (02/15/2022), the car just cut off. No warnings, no lights, just cut off. After several attempts, I managed to get car started. Traffic was piled up behind me. I took it to a local auto store that will run engine checks for free. No problems were found. The employee said it just registered "recharge battery". The car had no more problems that day. I did report it and was supposed to "stop by dealership" in the next few days, as this was "not a safety issue and it could be recharged quickly". The next evening, my daughter drove me to the store for some needed items. On the way back, she was slowly veering right at a yield sign and the engine cut off again. It was dark and the way the road curved, cars coming from behind us would not be able to see us. We were afraid that we would be hit from behind, causing injury to us and anyone in the other vehicle. The car would not restart. As the car was still slightly rolling, my daughter tried to veer over into a parking lot, to get us to safety. In the darkness, she was unable to see a ditch beside the entrance of parking lot and we fell straight into it, headfirst. We called for a sheriff's deputy, who came quickly. He mentioned that we were not in a safe area for "strangers". He placed his car, with his lights flashing, in the lane, near the intersection, in order to alert drivers coming near. I was told to have it towed to dealership. (I had just purchased it 12/24/2021.) Deputy did not make a formal report, as he stated their policy is to NOT do that in accidents with just one car. We had the car towed as instructed and a friend came to drive us home. This started a long, legal process with the dealership, which I can give further details on, if needed. My daughter and I could have easily been hit from behind. We could have been severely injured or lost our lives. An unsuspecting driver veering right at that intersection could have had the same fate, as it was too dark to see our car.

In June 2021 (41600 miles), my car cut off 3 times without service engine light coming on. When I stopped at lights and/or idle, the shuts off without warning. This is extremely dangerous for anyone on the highway or at traffic lights. The reason for the car shutting down is that the car's cylinder 2 misfired. I had to take my car twice, just for the dealership to say nothing is wrong with my car. I had to use my T-Mobile Sync Up to get the code and relay that message to the dealership. They would not fix it until I had a code. (What if I didn't have the Sync Up in my car to diagnose the problem. Once the dealership had the code, then the cylinder 2 ignition coil was replaced. I have an invoice. In February 2022 (44000 miles), the same thing happened at traffic lights and when my car was about to stop for parking. No advance "check service light" came on. The car just shuts off. This time T-Mobile Sync Up states that it was cylinder 4 misfired. But, when I took it to the dealership, they say nothing is wrong. They don't believe me unless it is in the car's system's history. But, T-Mobile Sync Up determined the problem before the dealership can find it. I don't have an invoice yet of the problem. This is a safety hazard and I spoke with a representative at my dealership and she stated that a lot of vehicles were having this safety issue. Someone could of ran in back of me. It's a good thing I didn't have kids in the car!! All of the cylinders' ignition coils need to be RECALLED. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE!!!

November 2, 2021 driving on the freeway, car started to shake, travelling at approximately 5mph in traffic. Check engine light came on and stayed on. Not knowing what was going on with the car took it to an independent mechanic to determine the problem. Mechanic ran diagnostics and determined car was misfiring. All 4 spark plugs were replaced and 2 coils. Induction cleaning was performed. February 4, 2022 car started shaking at a stop light, pulled into a parking lot. My father came to get the car and the check engine light came on. My father used an OBD meter and determined the car was misfiring once again. He was going to replace the coils himself, called Hyundai to see how much they would charge and was told that it was under warranty. Hyundai ended up replacing 4 coils. The coils placed installed in November did not meet the new coils that Hyundai is now using as OEM parts. Seems like this should be a recall if Hyundai knows that the coils delivered with the car our faulty. Tried to recover some of the costs from Hyundai for the previous work and was told they do not reimburse work done at independent mechanics.

For almost 2 years now I have had issues with my vehicle. In the middle of me driving, all the light would come on and sometimes just the engine light and the car would proceed to stop working. This had happened on the highway while I was pregnant and I almost got into a major accident. I have major anxiety because of the situation. Each time I would get the car towed to the dealership where I purchased it. They will have my car for months at a time, notify me when the issue is supposedly resolved and then return car back to me. A week or 2 later, the problem would happen again. I have had to take my car to the shop 5 major times. My safety, my child’s safety, and husband’s safety have been placed in jeopardy. I am very afraid to even step foot in the car. The problem has never been fixed. My car is currently at the dealership receiving service for the same issue. I am still paying on the car and it hasn’t worked for almost 2 years. I’ve tried to sell the car back to the dealership but they said there is a negative equity on the car and they aren’t willing to pay the difference. When I mention to them all that I have been through with the car, I am told the situation sucks but there is nothing they can do. This car should have been recalled from the beginning and no one ever reported it. I was told by an attorney that after the fourth time, there should have been alternative solutions such as: replacement of the vehicle or compensation. It still makes me feel scared to trust that they will fix the issue because as I have mentioned before, the problem keeps occurring. I have reported to the National BBB and I have 2 cases open with Hyundai Customer Care Center. Hyundai Customer Care Center has yet to respond to me. This issue has effected my ability to go to work because I don’t have transportation, my credit, my safety and family’s safety and overall wellbeing. I’ve tried several times to get this matter resolved. I have all of my receipts.

Engine idles rough, shifts rough, idles high, stalls, and sometimes just simply won't run. CEL came on when it was time for an oil change/service, had oil and filter changed at Express Lube, and had them run a diagnostic on the CEL to make sure it was for the oil change, it was code P0017 cam/crankshaft. They cleared the code to be sure it wasn't just a glitch, CEL came right back on not even 50 miles down the road, and the car stalled in the middle of traffic, barely made it out of harms way with my two children in the car! I bought this car in October 2021, made my first payment in December 2021 and the CEL came on originally in January 2022. After spending the money to have it diagnosed further by my Hyundai Dealer where I purchased the car, the technician confirmed the P0017 code and also that it is a timing chain issue and that it's recommended to just replace the entire motor! The car is barely 4 years old, not even 100k miles, and I am only the SECOND owner! How does this just happen to such a new car with lower mileage that has a good maintenance history just all of a sudden needs a new motor? I can't afford to keep making high payments on an unsafe vehicle. I have searched through the complaints about this specific model and have found several identical cases related to the P0017 code which tells me this is a reoccurring malfunction from Hyundai and they need to own that responsibility before a class action lawsuit is filed. CEL came on at approximately 95K miles which would qualify for the powertrain warranty but since I am the second owner the warranty is no good. Someone help please!!

If someone such as a child or infant had been inside who could not open door, would have been a safety issue. So now cannot heat car with door locked until repair is completed. Problem is constant.

The white paint simply started to peel off of the hood, leaving a big unpainted spot. This has been happening to a lot of Hyundai owners with cars with white paint, because Hyundai used defective paint. It actually is a safety issue because when driving on the highway large pieces of paint can come off of the hood and go into the windshield, distracting the drive. I can't believe you guys haven't issued a recall. So you are essentially making car owners pay to have the cars repainted? How is that possible?

On five different occasions over the past several months, the power steering has ceased to function, generally after the car has been driven and then parked. It suddenly appears to resolve itself after the steering wheel is operated manually numerous times. The local Hyundai dealer has stated that they will not attempt to diagnose the problem unless the car is towed in inoperable. If this failure occurs while driving, it could result in a catastrophic situation, as steering the vehicle would be extremely difficult.
