Summary of Complaint

MY VEHICLE HAD BEEN PARKED IN MY DRIVEWAY AND WHEN I WENT TO START THE CAR IT WOULDN'T START, BUT IT BEGAN MAKING THIS KNOCKING NOISE. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT CAUSED THIS, BUT IT WAS EXTREMELY EMBARRASSING AND THE ONLY THING I COULD THINK OF WAS TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. AND THAT'S WHEN I HEARD THE NOISE COMING FROM THE ENGINE.

VIN: 5NPDH4AE7DH****

Summary of Complaint

MY 2013 HYUNDAI ELANTRA WITH APPROX. 75,000 MILES, AND NO MECHANICAL OR COSMETIC ISSUES, CAUGHT FIRE WHILE PARKED AND TURNED OFF FOR 10 MINUTES AT TAVERN IN THE SQUARE RESTAURANT IN LOWELL, MA. PATRONS WHO WERE PARKED NEARBY HEARD WHAT SOUNDED LIKE ELECTRICAL SPARKS AND THEN WITNESSED SMOKE COMING FROM THE HOOD WHICH THEN BURST INTO FLAMES. THEY RAN IN TO RETRIEVE MY FAMILY AND I AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT CAME WITHIN 10 MINUTES TO EXTINGUISH THE FLAMES BUT THE CAR WAS COMPLETELY DESTROYED BY THAT TIME. I HAVE VIDEOS AND PICTURES THAT CAN BE FORWARDED TO YOU. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CONTACT HYUNDAI CUSTOMER SERVICE BUT WAS ON HOLD FOR 40 MINUTES AND IMMEDIATELY DISCONNECTED BEFORE SPEAKING TO ANYONE. THIS HAS BEEN EXTREMELY STRESSFUL EMOTIONALLY AND FINANCIALLY. THE CAR WAS IN OUR GARAGE JUST 30 MINUTES PRIOR AND THIS COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH WORSE. THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A HISTORY OF ISSUES WITH SOME OTHER HYUNDAI VEHICLES WHICH I WASN'T AWARE OF UNTIL NOW BUT I DON'T SEE THAT MY CAR WAS LISTED AS A POSSIBLE RECALL FOR ELECTRICAL FIRES. IT WAS MY ONLY MODE OF TRANSPORTATION AND EVERY PENNY I EARNED WAS USED TO PURCHASE THIS VEHICLE LESS THAN ONE YEAR AGO. I DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE THAT WOULD COVER THIS SITUATION SO THIS IS A TOTAL LOSS. PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW TO PROCEED AND ALSO WHERE TO FORWARD THE VIDEO AND PHOTO DETAILS.

Consumer Location: Unknown
VIN: 5NPDH4AE7DH****

Summary of Complaint

PREMATURE WEAR ON INSIDE EDGE OF REAR TIRES. WHEEL ALIGNMENT INDICATES THAT THE REAR WHEELS ARE AT THE HIGH END OF THE SPECIFICATION BUT THERE IS NO ADJUSTMENT. ON WET OR ICY ROAD CONDITIONS THE CAR LURCHES FROM SIDE TO SIDE LOSING TRACTION SHIFTING SIDE TO SIDE. TIRES WEAR OUT AFTER APPROXIMATELY 30K MULTIPLE BRANDS HAVE BEEN TRIED. DEALER DID MULTIPLE WHEEL ALIGNMENTS AND EVENTUALLY PROVIDED TWO NEW TIRES BUT NEVER FIXED THE PROBLEM. I KNOW OF OTHERS WHO HAVE BOUGHT THE SAME YEAR OF VEHICLE AND HAD THE SAME ISSUE. THE LURKING/SHIFTING WHEN DRIVING ON WET OR ICY ROAD IS VERY DANGEROUS. THE TIRE REPLACEMENT ISSUE IS COSTLY AS WELL. REAR TIRES ARE CHAMBERED FROM FACTORY CAUSING THIS ISSUE AND NO ADJUSTMENT CAPABILITIES. THIS SHOULD BE A FACTORY RECALL AND THE REAR AXLE SHOULD BE REPLACED TO PROPERLY ALIGN THE REAR WHEELS. MY FIRST SET OF FACTORY TIRES WHERE EVENLY ON THE FRONT THEY WERE MEASURED AT 8/32 TREAD WHEN THE REAR TIRES WHERE UNEVENLY FROM 8/32 ON THE OUTSIDE TO 0/32 ON THE INSIDE TWO INCHES INTO THE TIRE TREAD. FOUGHT WITH DEAL FIR MONTHS AND MONTHS THEY FINALLY WON AND WORE ME OUT. I JUST STOP GOING TO THEM AND REPLACE MY TIRES AS THEY WEAR OUT. VERY COSTLY AND DANGEROUS FOR OTHERS WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE LURKING/SHIFTING TO DRIVE THIS CAR. THERE ARE NO AFTER MARKET SHIM KITS TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE EITHER. THIS SHOULD BE A SAFETY RECALL FOR THIS VEHICLE AS THE VEHICLE WHEEL ALIGNMENT IS NOT TRACKING PROPERLY WITH NO ADJUSTMENT.

VIN: 5NPDH4AE7DH****

Summary of Complaint

I WAS ON MY WAY BACK FROM CO TO MN. AS I ENTERED LUSK, WY, A STRANGE "CLUNKING" NOISE STARTED TO ARISE FROM THE ENGINE AND SHORTLY AFTER THE VEHICLE STOPPED ACCELERATING. I PULLED OVER AND TURNED THE VEHICLE OFF WAITED A COUPLE MINUTES AND THEN TURNED IT BACK ON. I WAS NO LONGER ABLE TO DRIVE OR PUT THE CAR IN REVERSE. I TOWED THE VEHICLE TO A HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP. THE DEALERSHIP REPORT STATED THAT THEY WERE "ABLE TO START THE VEHICLE AND SHORTLY AFTER THE CRANKSHAFT SEIZED AND THE ENGINE NO LONGER TURNED OVER." THE VEHICLE HAD ONE PREVIOUS OWNER SO THE REPLACEMENT WAS NOT COVERED BY A WARRANTY. I HAD OWNED THE CAR FOR A YEAR AND REPLACED THE OIL EVERY 3,000 MILES. THERE WAS NO POSSIBILTY THAT THE ENGINE FAILURE OCCURED DUE TO NEGLIGENCE ON BEHALF OF CHANGING THE OIL.

VIN: 5NPDH4AE7DH****

Summary of Complaint

THE ENGINE OF MY 2013 HYUNDAI ELANTRA GLS FAILED TO START THE MORNING OF 1/3/17 WHILE PARKED IN THE DRIVEWAY. I TURNED THE KEY IN THE IGNITION NUMEROUS TIMES WITHOUT SUCCESS. THE DASH LIGHTS WOULD ILLUMINATE, BUT THE CAR WOULDN'T START OR EVEN TRY TO TURN OVER. AFTER APPX. 15 ATTEMPTS, IT FINALLY STARTED. I BOUGHT A NEW BATTERY HOPING THAT WOULD FIX PROBLEM. HOWEVER, THE PROBLEM REPEATED ON 1/18/17, AGAIN WHILE PARKED IN DRIVEWAY. AFTER ROUGHLY 50 ATTEMPTS TO START THE CAR AND TRYING TO WIGGLE THE GEAR SHIFT, IT FINALLY STARTED. I THEN DROVE TO THE DEALERSHIP AND LEFT THE CAR WITH THEM OVERNIGHT. THE FOLLOWING DAY I WAS ADVISED BY THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT THAT SINCE THEY COULD NOT GET THE CAR TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM OR TRIGGER ANY DIAGNOSTIC CODES, THEY COULD NOT REPAIR IT OR REPLACE ANY PARTS. FORTUNATELY, TO DATE I HAVE BEEN IN SAFE PLACES DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS WHEN MY CAR FAILED TO START. HOWEVER, I MAY NOT ALWAYS BE SO FORTUNATE AND COULD POSSIBLY BE STRANDED IN A VERY VULNERABLE LOCATION IN THE FUTURE. OUT OF THE 430 COMPLAINTS LISTED AGAINST THE 2013 ELANTRA ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE, ROUGHLY 7% OF THE OWNERS REPORTED EXPERIENCING THIS IDENTICAL PROBLEM. A FURTHER SEARCH OF THE INTERNET REVEALS MANY, MANY MORE SUCH COMPLAINTS. ONE MIGHT BELIEVE THAT COULD INDICATE THE EXISTENCE OF A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM; YET, IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THE MANUFACTURER HAS ISSUED ANY RECALLS OR SERVICE BULLETINS SPECIFIC TO MY VEHICLE MODEL TO ADDRESS/FIX THIS ENGINE FAILURE.
