Summary of Complaint

Going down a hill breaks completely failed and had to go off road to avoid increased speed. Resulted in Hitting tree. By failed I mean no pressure on break pedal and with pedal pushed to floor it did nothing to slow or stop vehicle. Now breaks seem to be working again but worried this will reoccur while at faster speeds.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 HYUNDAI ELANTRA STARTED MAKING A TICKING/ KNOCKING NOISE IN THE ENGINE. I GOOGLED THE PROBLEM AND FOUND THAT MANY PEOPLE WERE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. IT WAS A MISSED STEP WHEN BUILDING THE ENGINE. THE NOISE IS CALLED PISTON SLAP. IT'S HAPPENING TO A LOT OF HYUNDAI'S FROM 2011-2016 ELANTRA AND SONATAS. HYUNDAI DIDN'T DO A RECALL BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO FOOT THE COST OF REPLACING THE ENGINES. I TOOK MY CAR TO HYUNDAI OF SOUTH BRUNSWICK NJ ON 7/3/19 NO ONE CALLED ME UNTIL 7/9/19 I CALLED EVERYDAY 3-4 TIMES A DAY AND KEPT BEING TRANSFERED TO LEAVE VOICE MAILS, I LEFT MESSAGES AND NO ONE CALLED ME BACK. ON 7/9/19 I WAS CALLED AND TOLD IT WOULD COST ME 6,766.00 TO REPLACE MY ENGINE. I BELIEVE HYUNDAI SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ENGINE WHEN THEY'RE AWARE OF THIS ISSUE AND HAVE NOT DONE A RECALL. THE PROBLEM HAPPENED JUST STARTING THE CAR ONE MORNING AND THE NOISE GOT LOUDER EACH DAY.

VIN: 5NPDH4AE6CH****

Summary of Complaint

OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS MY ELANTRA HAS STALLED IMMEDIATELY UPON STARTING. IT DOESNT MATTER IF THE ENGINE IS HOT OR COLD. JUST FILLED UP WITH GAS OR ANYWHERE IN BETWEEN. THE PROBLEM IS VERY INTERMITTENT. USUALLY IT WOULD THEN START ON THE 2ND OR 3RD TRY BUT HAS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS LEFT ME STRANDED REQUIRING A TOW. THE DEALERSHIP ACKNOWLEDGED THIS WAS A KNOWN PROBLEM BUT UNLESS THEY CAN REPLICATE THE PROBLEM, THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO. IVE HAD THE THROTTLE BODY CLEANED AND ALL NEW SPARK PLUGS, BUT ITS STILL ACTING UP. I DONT WANT TO KEEP THROWING MONEY AT IT GUESSING WHAT COULD BE WRONG. THIS BEGAN AROUND 10,000 MILES AND IT NOW IS APPROACHING 80,000. ID LIKE FOR HYUNDAI TO ACKNOWLEDGE THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF SIMILAR COMPLAINTS AND TO INVESTIGATE THE PROBLEM.

VIN: 5NPDH4AE6CH****

Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED THIS CAR IN JUNE 2011 AND THERE HAVE BEEN THREE SEPARATE TIMES THAT MY CAR WILL NOT START. THE FIRST TIME WAS A FEW MONTHS AFTER I FIRST PURCHASED MY CAR. I WENT TO START MY CAR IN THE MORNING AND IT WOULD NOT CUT ON. AFTER LETTING IT SIT FOR THE DAY I TRIED IT AND IT TURNED ON WITH NO PROBLEMS. THE SECOND INCIDENT HAPPENED SEPTEMBER 2013. I WENT TO START MY CAR IN THE MORNING. IT WOULD CRANK BUT NOT TURN OVER. I LET IS SIT FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS AND EVERYDAY I WOULD TRY IT AND IT STILL WOULD NOT START. I FINALLY HAD IT TOWED TO A HYUNDAI DEALER NEAR ME AND THEY RAN TESTS AND EVERYTHING CAME BACK FINE AND WAS TOLD THE CAR STARTED FOR THEM WITH NO PROBLEM AND I PROBABLY DIDN'T PUSH IN ON THE CLUTCH ALL THE WAY. EVEN THOUGH THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER ALSO TRIED IT AND WOULD NOT START FOR HIM TOO. THE MOST RECENT INCIDENT THE SAME ISSUE HAPPENED. CAR WOULD CRANK AND NOT TURN OVER. I DID SOME RESEARCH ONLINE AND SAW FROM ANOTHER HYUNDAI OWNER THAT THEY HAD TO PUMP THEIR GAS PEDAL TO GET THEIR CAR TO START. ONCE I TRIED THAT THE CAR STARTED AFTER A FEW MINUTES. THIS TIME I DROVE IT TO THE HYUNDAI DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR AND ONCE AGAIN ALL TESTS CAME BACK FINE AND THEY CANNOT FIND A PROBLEM. *TR
