Summary of Complaint

BRAKES ARE A CONTINUING PROBLEM OR BETTER SAID BAD BRAKES, LIKE SOMETIMES GOING TO THE FLOORBOARD. THE ESC DASH LIGHT IS ON AND THE CRUISE CONTROL DOESN'T WORK EITHER. I HAD COMPLETED A RECALL ON THE BRAKE FLUID,BUT SHORTLY AFTER THAT MY MY PETAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. BEING CONCERNED, I REPLACED THE MASTER CYLINDER, BRAKE ROTORS, BRAKE LINES AND PADS. UPON BLEEDING THE SYSTEM, THE DEALERS NEW BRAKE FLUID CAME OUT WITH SLUDGE FLOATING ON TOP OF CLEAR FLUID. I CONTACTED THE DEALERS GENERAL MGR. AND COMPLAINED OF A BAD DRAIN REPAIR. HE ASKED ME TO BRING MY CAR IN AND THEY'LL CHECK IT AGAIN. I SHOWED HIM THE PICTURES AND THEY DENIED THAT IT CAME FROM MY CAR, BUT THEY WOULD FIX MY CAR'S BRAKES FOR $2700.00 WITH NO GUARANTEE THAT IT WOULDN'T COST MORE. THIS WAS TOM AH DEALER SHIP IN LIMA, OHIO. I FEEL THAT HYUNDAI SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE BRAKE PROBLEMS.I HAVE THE FLUID SAVED AND PICTURES ALSO. UPON CHECKING THE INTERNET, I HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT THE ESC AND CRUISE CONTROL IS WIRED TO THE ABS SYSTEM. I WAS ON INTERSTATE 75 AND THE CAR JUST STARTED APPLYING THE BRAKES BY THEMSELVES. A RATCHETING ON OFF EFFECT. I SLOWED THE CAR DOWN AND PULLED THE CAR OVER TO THE SIDE. I WAS WITHIN SIGHT OF MY TURNOFF STATE RTE 274 OH, SO I CONTINUED ON. I WENT TO STOP AND MY PETAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. I WAS GOING SLOW, MADE MY TURN AND STOPPED. I GOT UNDER THE HOOD JUST TO SEE IF SOMETHING VISUAL WAS THERE. I WAS WITHIN 7 MILES OF MY HOME A STRAIGHT LINE, SO I WENT FOR IT. I PRESSED ON THE GAS AND MY LEFT FRONT WHEEL WAS LOCKED UP. I BACKED UP AND WENT FORWARD AGAIN, SHUTTING OFF THE CAR & RESTARTING IT. BRAKE WAS RELEASED, BUT PETAL STILL WENT TO THE FLOOR. I DROVE HOME 20 MPH, HAD CAR TOWED TO DEALER FOR REPAIR. DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY DID, BUT CHARGED $677.00. A COUPLE DAYS LATER, MY PETAL WENT TO THE FLOOR AGAIN. THATS WHEN I DID THE REPAIRS NOTED ABOVE. STILL HAVE PROBLEMS.

Summary of Complaint

MY HYUNDAI DEALER CALLED ME TODAY MAY 15, 2019 AND SAID THAT THE ESTIMATE TO REPAIR MY GENESIS BRAKES WOULD COST $2770.00 AT A MINIMUM, MAYBE MORE IF THE WHOLE SYSTEM HAD TO BE REPLACED. IN OTHER WORDS; (PLEASE WRITE A BLANK CHECK TO US.) THIS IS A HYUNDAI PROBLEM AS A MANUFACTURER. THEY PUT DOT 3 FLUID IN THE SYSTEM AT BIRTH OF THE CAR AND IT CAUSED CORROSION INTERACTING WITH THE ZINC PLATING INTERNALLY. PROPER TESTING WASN'T DONE PRIOR TO ASSEMBLY SIGNOFF. THE RECALL CHANGED THE FLUID TO DOT 4 AND IN MY CASE THE FLUID WAS NOT PROPERTY DRAINED AND CHANGED AND MY PICTURES OF THE FLUID PROVE THE SEPARATION AND CRUD IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM. MANY GENESIS HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM AND HYUNDAI SHOULD BE FORCED TO MAKE THIS REPAIR ON THE AFFECTED CARS. WHAT IS A BIGGER SAFETY CONCERN THEN HAVING YOUR BRAKES GO OUT WHEN APPLIED. MY CAR WON'T STOP AS THE BRAKE PEDAL GOES TO THE FLOOR ALL THE WAY DOWN.THE ABS & ESC LIGHTS COME ON WHEN THIS HAPPENED. THE BRAKE FLUID WAS CHANGED IN 2014 AND AGAIN IN 2019. A NEW MASTER CYLINDER, FRONT BRAKE LINES, BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AND DIODE WAS INSTALLED IN MARCH 2019. TOOK IT TO DEALER IN APRIL 2019 AND THEY ALL WAS OK EXCEPT ESC LIGHT WAS ON. DROVE IT HOME AND LESS THEN 60 MILES THE BRAKES PETAL AGAIN WENT TO THE FLOOR. TAKING IT BACK TO DEALER IN LIMA, OH ON MAY 15, 2019. I PUT IN A COMPLAINT TO CONSUMER [email protected], BUT THE GIRL WHO RETURNED THE CALL, READ FROM A SCRIPT AND SAID SORRY, YOUR CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY. PLEASE REFERENCE YOUR CASE NUMBER 15737333. THIS CAR IS UNFIT TO DRIVE AND FROM OTHER POSTINGS, IT WILL COST $2500 TO REPAIR. THE CARS VALUE IS BETWEEN $3600/5600 DOLLARS.THIS IS AN ON GOING SAFETY PROBLEM THAT HYUNDAI HAS PUT OFF MAKING A PROPER REPAIR, RELYING ON TIME AND MILES TO GET OUT OF A SAFETY RECALL. I'M UPLOADING PHOTOS OF BRAKE FLUID TAKEN FROM MY CAR IN MARCH AND APRIL 2019.

Summary of Complaint

FOR THE FIFTH TIME I AM HAVING AN OXYGEN SENSOR REPLACED ON MY GENESIS (THE VEHICLE HAS 4). THE SYMPTOM HAS BEEN A "CHECK ENGINE LIGHT" THAT RESULTS IN AN INTERMITTENT, OCCASIONAL PROBLEM WHEN STOPPED AND IDLING. THE ENGINE LIGHT STARTS TO FLASH, THE ENGINE BEGINS TO IDLE VERY ROUGHLY, AND THERE'S BARELY ENOUGH POWER TO CREEP THROUGH THE INTERSECTION. THIS CONDITION CLEARS UP PRETTY QUICKLY BUT THE LIGHT REMAINS ON. THE FLASHING LIGHT/ROUGH IDLE/LOSS OF POWER RECURS. THE PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED REQUIRING AN OXYGEN SENSOR CHANGE FIVE TIMES STARTING IN MID-2016 AT AROUND 100,000 MILES.

Summary of Complaint

THIS COMPLAINT IS IN JUNCTION WITH THE BRAKE FLUID RECALL FOR HYUNDAI GENESIS. HAD TO STEP ON MY BREAK ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR IN ORDER TO STOP VEHICLE. ALMOST CRASHED INTO CAR AHEAD OF ME. TOOK VEHICLE IMMEDIATELY TO DEALERSHIP. NOTIFIED BY DEALER THAT THE HYDRAULIC ELECTRIC CONTROL UNIT NEEDS REPLACEMENT. DID RESEARCH AND REALIZED MOST LIKELY DUE TO THE CORROSIVE BRAKE FLUID THAT IS A KNOWN RECALL. DEALERSHIP IS BEING DIFFICULT IN REPLACING HECU EVEN THOUGH IT IS CLEARLY RELATED TO THE CORROSIVE BRAKE FLUID RECALL. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD AS IF I WAS DRIVING FASTER OR BRAKED LATER IT COULD HAVE BEEN A MULTI VEHICLE ACCIDENT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

BRAKE PEDAL WENT TO FLOOR. VERY DIFFICULT TO STOP VEHICLE. THIS IS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM AND DOES NOT HAPPEN ALL THE TIME. TYPICALLY HAS OCCURRED ONCE OR TWICE PER MONTH. THIS CONTINUES EVEN AFTER HAVING THE MASTER CYLINDER REPLACED AND FILLING A COMPLAINT WITH THE NHTSA. HYUNDAI CHECKED THE HECU MODULE UNDER THEIR RECALL CAMPAIGN #114 AND STATES THE HECU IS WITHIN SPECS. HOWEVER, SINCE THIS IS AN INTERMITTENT ISSUE THEY CANNOT DIAGNOSIS THE PROBLEM UNTIL IT FAILS. CANNOT DRIVE VEHICLE AS WE CANNOT PREDICT NEXT TIME THIS FAILURE WILL OCCUR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING IN A 45 MPH ROAD, THERE WAS A TRAFFIC LIGHT THAT TURNED RED. MY SPEED BEFORE STARTING TO BRAKE WAS APPROXIMATELY 40 MPH. WHEN I PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL, IT WENT ALMOST TO THE FLOOR AND THE CAR WAS NOT STOPPING. IMMEDIATELY I PUMPED THE BRAKE PEDAL SEVERAL TIMES AND FORTUNATELY THE BRAKES SLOWED DOWN THE CAR UNTIL IT CAME TO A STOP ALMOST AT THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION. IT WAS A BLESSING THAT THERE WAS NO OTHER CAR IN FRONT OF ME OR CROSSING THE INTERSECTION AT THE TIME. DROVE HOME VERY SLOWLY AND TOWED THE VEHICLE TO THE SERVICE CENTER. ABS MODULE WAS REPLACED AT A COST OF OVER $2400.00. A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THE CAR HAD THE BRAKE FLUID REPLACED DUE TO A VEHICLE RECALL FROM HYUNDAI. SERVICE PERFORMED BY THE SAME SERVICE CENTER THAT REPLACED THE FAULTY ABS MODULE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I SERIOUSLY HOPE PEOPLE DON'T HAVE TO DIE BEFORE THIS CAR IS RECALLED FOR BRAKE FAILURE PROBLEMS. I AM HAVING AN ISSUE WITH MY 2009 GENESIS WHERE ALL OF THE SUDDEN THE BRAKE PEDAL BECOMES VERY SOFT AND GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. I INITIALLY THOUGHT THIS WAS A ONE-TIME FLUKE. WELL NOW THE BRAKE PEDAL HAS OCCASIONALLY GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR WITHOUT ANY PRESSURE BEING APPLIED TO BRAKE SYSTEM. THE BEST WAY I CAN DESCRIBE THE PROBLEM IS THE BRAKES ARE GOOD AND THEN THEY ARE BAD ON THE NEXT APPLICATION. NO WARNING LIGHTS, NO GRADUAL DETERIORATION, JUST INSTANT NO BRAKES. PUMPING SEEMS TO IMPROVE THE BRAKES SLIGHTLY BUT THEY RAPIDLY FADED WHEN HELD. NO BRAKE FLUID LEAK IS OBSERVED AND BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IS FULL. FROM WHAT I AM READING THIS IS NOT A SPORADIC PROBLEM IF YOU LOOK AT HOW MANY OF US THIS IS HAPPENING TO!!! I PRAY THIS HYUNDAI PROBLEM DOES NOT END UP IN A SERIOUS ACCIDENT AND SOMEONE BEING KILLED. THIS CAR IS COMPLETELY UNPREDICTABLE AND UNRELIABLE. THE BRAKES WORK FINE UNTIL THEY DECIDE NOT TO WORK. THIS IS SOME SCARY STUFF. *TR
