Summary of Complaint

IBRAKE FAILURE! HYDRAULIC MODULE ASSY FAILURE WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE AND DURING THE DRIVE, MY BRAKE ALL OF A SUDDEN BECAME SOFT AND REQUIRED ME TO PUSH ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR TO STOP THE CAR. I BELIEVE IT'S REFERRED TO AS SPONGY BRAKES. I TOOK THE CAR TO AN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC SHOP AND THEY DIAGNOSED A FAULTY HYDRAULIC MODULE ASSEMBLY. I ALSO CALLED THE DEALER AND THEY MENTIONED THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE BRAKE FLUID DUE TO ITS POTENTIAL TO CAUSE CORROSION IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM. THE DEALER IS NOW QUOTING ME ~$3,400 TO REPAIR AND REPLACE THE HYDRAULIC MODULE ASSY. WOW!! I CALLED HYUNDAI USA AND THEY SAID SINCE THE CAR WAS OUT OF WARRANTY THEY WOULD NOT COVER THE REPAIR, I INFORMED THEM OF THE RECALL ON FLUID AND THEY SAID IT DOES NOT COVER THE PARTS THAT WERE DAMAGED BY THE BAD FLUID. THIS IS UNFAIR AND EXCESSIVE BEHAVIOR ON THE PART HYUNDAI. CLEARLY THEY RECOGNIZED THE FLUID WAS DAMAGING BRAKE COMPONENTS BUT ARE UNWILLING TO COVER RELATED REPAIRS. THE BRAKES ON THIS CAR ARE AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPENING SINCE THE BRAKES ARE FAILING. I WOULD NOT BUY ANOTHER HYUNDAI VEHICLE KNOWING THEY WON'T COVER CRITICAL SAFETY COMPONENTS. OTHERS HAVE VOICED THE SAME ISSUE WITH NO SUPPORT FROM HYUNDAI. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE Z01 DIODE FAILED CAUSING THE BRAKE LIGHTS NOT TO ILLUMINATE WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS PRESSED. THERE IS NO WARNING TO THE DRIVER THAT THIS FAILURE HAS OCCURRED. THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE BY HYUNDAI. THEY RELEASED A TSB, TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 09-BE-023, CONCERNING THE ISSUE BUT THE SOLUTION IS TO REPLACE THE SAME DIODE WHEN IT HAS FAILED. NO IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO MAKE THE PART MORE RELIABLE. IT IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AS THE DRIVER HAS NO INDICATION THAT THE BRAKE LIGHTS DO NOT WORK PUTTING THEM, PASSENGERS, AND OTHER DRIVERS AT RISK OF A SERIOUS REAR END COLLISION.

Summary of Complaint

FREEWAY DRIVING AT SPEED LIMIT (65MPH) PASSENGER SEAT HEAD REST SELF ENERGIZED CAUSING PASSENGER TO BECOME UNCONCIOUS FOR ONE OR TWO MINUTES, WITHOUT WARNING. AUTO HAD NO ACCICENTS NOR ANY OTHER DAMAGE TO HEADREST OR SEAT. PASSENGER COMMENT AFTER HE BECAME CONCIOUS WAS "WHY DID YOU HIT ME." PRECEEDED BY A NOISE LIKE A METAL PIPE BEING DROPPED. THERE WAS NO REASON FOR THE 'REAR END COLLISION SENSOR LOCATED AT SEAT BASE TO ENERGIZE. THE HEADREST CAME FORWARD STRIKING BACK OF HEAD CAUSING A POSSIBLE CONCUSION. A DIFFERENT RESULT WOULD HAVE CAUSED DEATH IF IT WAS THE DRIVER SIDE. FAILURE WAS CAUSED BE SPRING TENSION CONTINIOUS ON PLASTIC AND BOTH THE FRONT AND REAR PIECES, BUT ONLY THE FRONT PART IS AVAILABLE FOR REPAIR. THIS FORCES REPLACEMENT OF THE ENTIRE HEADREST ASSEMBLY. (QUOTED $792). REPAIR NOT AVAILABLE IN A TIMELY MANNER.

Summary of Complaint

THE POWER-STEERING IS LEAKING FLUID AND THIS IS THE 2ND TIME THIS ISSUE HAS OCCURRED IN LESS THAN 3 YEARS. THE 1ST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS IN OCTOBER 2016 WHEN THE CAR HAD 25,822 MILES, AND HAPPY HYUNDAI REPLACED THE RACK SET AND THE POWER STEERING LINE. THE PROBLEM RE-OCCURRED IN SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 WHEN THE CAR HAD 51,784 MILES, AND NAPLETON-RIVER OAKS HYUNDAI SAID THE CAR IS LEAKING POWER-STEERING FLUID, AND WHEN I DROVE THE CAR BEFORE TAKING IT IN FOR REPAIRS, I NOTICED DIFFICULTY IN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO RECEIVE A SERVICE DIAGNOSTIC FROM NAPLETON HYUNDAI BECAUSE THE CAR IS STILL IN THE SHOP AND THEY DISCOVERED THE ISSUE AFTER I LEFT. I ALSO CONTACTED HYUNDAI'S NATIONAL CONSUMER AFFAIRS OFFICE ABOUT THE PROBLEM BUT IT DOESN'T APPEAR THEY WILL FORWARD TO THEIR TECHNICAL OFFICE.

Summary of Complaint

IN 2016, I FILED COMPLAINT # 1084551 REGARDING THE ENGINE SHUTTING DOWN WHEN MY CAR HAD ONLY 23000 MILES. UNFORTUNATELY NEITHER THIS AGENCY OR HYUNDAI USA GAVE ME THE AN EXPLANATION AS TO WHY THIS HAPPENED, AND HAPPY HYUNDAI KEPT MY CAR FOR 43 DAYS TO REPLACE VARIOUS ENGINE PARTS. NOW IN 2019, THE CONNECTOR TO THE COOLANT FAN MELTED WHICH IS RELATED TO THE ECM MODULE. THERE WAS AN ECM RECALL AT THE TIME IN MARCH 2016 BUT IT APPEARS THAT THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE RECALL DIDNT ADDRESS/FIX THE PROBLEM. FURTHER, IT APPEARS THAT THE PROBLEM I ENCOUNTERED IN 2016, THEE ECM RECALL AND THE PROBLEM I HAVE ENCOUNTERED ON JULY 25, 2019 ARE VERY RELATED. I CAN ONLY HOPE AND IMPLORE THOS AGENCY TO LOOK FURTHER INTO THESE ISSUES. THE CAR WAS IN MOTION WHEN THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. TOOK TO THE DEALER AND THE DIAGANOSTIC I WAS GIVEN SAID THEE THERMOSTATE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED ALONG WITH THE TEMPERATURE SENSOR AND A COOLANT FLUSH. ALSO TOLD THE A/C COMPRESSOR AND HOSE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. ON AUGUST 14TH THE THERMOSTATE, SENSOR AND COOLANT FLUSH WAS COMPLETED BY HAPPY HYUNDAI BUT THE ENGINE CAME BACK ON THE SAME DAY AFTER I DROVE ON THE EXPRESSWAY. I TOOK MY CAR INTO ANOTHER O. AUGUST 20, 2019 AND WAS TOLD MY CAR WASS MISSED DIAGNOSED AND THAT THE COOLANT FAN CONTROLLER HAD SHORTED AND THE CONNECTOR TO THAT COMPONENT HAD MELTED. THIS IS ALL RELATED TO THE ECM MODULE.

Summary of Complaint

MY FATHER IS CURRENTLY LOOKING AFTER MY VEHICLE AND WHILE HE WAS DOING ROUTINE CHECKS WHEN WENT TO DEPRESS THE BRAKE PETAL IT SANK ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. HE LATER TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC WHO THEN BLEED THE SYSTEM A FEW TIMES ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE FRONT RIGHT BRAKE AND REAR LEFT BRAKE ARE OPERATING AS NORMAL. AS IT WOULD TURN OUT, HOWEVER, HYUNDAI ISSUED A RECALL FOR THIS BUT ONLY FOR THE GENESIS SEDANS AND NOT THE COUPES. HYUNDAI RECALL #114 AND NHTSA RECALL #13V489000 STATE THE BRAKE FLUID THE MANUFACTURE USES DOES NOT PROTECT THE H.E.C.U. OR HYDRAULIC ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT (A.K.A. ABS CONTROL UNIT) AGAINST INTERNAL CORROSION. SO THE INTERNAL VALVES WILL CORRODED AND PREVENT THE BRAKES FROM OPERATING PROPERLY. IN MY 2011 GENESIS COUPE THIS IS CURRENTLY THE ISSUE. OTHER COUPE OWNERS ARE HAVING SIMILAR ISSUES WHERE THEY CAN'T STOP THE CAR PROPER AND/OR THE BRAKE PETAL SINKS TO THE FLOOR AT RANDOM TIMES WHILE DRIVING SLOW OR AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS AND THE BRAKE DON'T OPERATE PROPERLY OR AT ALL! THE MANUFACTURE SEEMS TO BE AWARE OF THE ISSUE BUT WON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. REPLACING THE MASTER CYLINDER AND COMPLETELY BLEEDING THE SYSTEM DOESN'T HAVE ANY AFFECT FOR THE ISSUE. TO REPLACE THE UNIT, I'M LOOKING AT ROUGHLY $3,200 OF MY OWN MONEY TO REPLACE THE H.E.C.U DUE TO DEFECTIVE BRAKE FLUID THAT HAS CORRODED THE INTERNALS. THE CAR HAS BARELY BEEN DRIVEN WITH LESS ABOUT 30K MILES ON IT. THIS A GRAVE SAFETY CONCERN AND HYUNDAI NEEDS TO ADDRESS THE ISSUES FOR NOT JUST THE SEDANS BUT THE COUPES AS WELL! IF I OR THE DRIVER OF MY CAR NEEDED TO MAKE AN EMERGENCY STOP THERE IS NO TELLING IF THE BRAKES WOULD OPERATE IN THAT MOMENT AS THEY SHOULD. INJURY OR DEATH COULD OCCUR FOR NOT JUST THE DRIVER BUT OTHER CASUALTIES THAT COULD BE PREVENTED IF HYUNDAI FIXES THIS ISSUE FOR ALL HYUNDAI GENESIS COUPES. BRAKE OPERATION IS VASTLY IMPORTANT IN ALL VEHICLES. THIS PROBLEM IS SERIOUS.

MY 2011 GENESIS SEDAN (4.6L V8) HAS AN INCREASINGLY SOFT, SPONGY BRAKE PEDAL PAST YEAR OR SO. THIS OCCURS WHILE DRIVING IN/OUT OF MY NEIGHBORHOOD, ON BUSY NJ HIGHWAYS, AND WHEN PARKED WITH ENGINE RUNNING. HAD ROTORS, PADS, MASTER CYLINDER AND BRAKE FLUID REPLACED RECENTLY (~2 MONTHS AGO; $1200; RECEIPTS AVAILABLE). DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. I FEEL UNSAFE DRIVING THE CAR AND PUTTING ME/OTHER DRIVERS AT RISK. FROM RESEARCHING THE PROBLEM, INCLUDING RECENTLY LEARNING ABOUT THE RECALL OF 2009-2012 MODELS FOR BRAKE PROBLEMS, I AM GUESSING THAT EITHER THE BRAKE BOOSTER AND/OR ABS BRAKE MODULE ARE FAILING.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2011 HYUNDAI GENESIS IS EXPERIENCING BRAKING FAILURE. I HAVE ALMOST HAD ACCIDENTS DUE TO MY CAR'S INABILITY TO COME TO A STOP IN A REASONABLE TIME, ESPECIALLY WHEN FOLLOWING VEHICLES THAT COME TO A SUDDEN STOP. THE PEDAL DEPRESSES ALMOST TO THE FLOOR AND IS VERY SPONGY. THE PROBLEM IS INTERMITTENT BUT CONSISTENT. I RESEARCHED THE ISSUE AND FOUND THAT THERE WAS A RECALL RELATED TO THIS ISSUE, BUT FOR SOME REASON, HYUNDAI EXCLUDED MY VIN DESPITE IT FALLING WITHIN THE MANUFACTURE PERIOD OF HYUNDAI CARS EXPERIENCING THE ISSUE. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP AND THEY DIAGNOSED A FAILED ABS SYSTEM, SPECIFICALLY STATING THAT THE INTERNAL SEALS OF THE HECU (ESC UNIT) WERE WORN CAUSING POOR SEALING. THIS MAY BE RELATED TO THE CORROSIVE BRAKE FLUID THAT THEY REPLACED FOR THEIR CAMPAIGN TL6. UNDER HYUNDAI'S RECALL CAMPAIGN 114, THE HECU SYSTEM SHOULD HAVE BEEN INSPECTED AND REPAIRED OR REPLACED IN ADDITION TO CHANGING THE FLUID. HYUNDAI MERELY REPLACED THE FLUID. THIS HAS CAUSED A DANGEROUS SITUATION WITH MY BRAKING SYSTEM THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED.

Summary of Complaint

SINCE PURCHASING THE CAR, USED, IN 2014, WE HAVE HAD NUMEROUS, RANDOM INSTANCES WHERE THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. IT'S HAPPENED IN ALL TYPES OF WEATHER AND TEMPERATURES. WE PRESENTLY HAVE AROUND 76K MILES. I'VE HAD THE CAR IN FOR CHECKUPS TO OUR MECHANIC TWICE, WITH NO FINDINGS. THE PROBLEM HAPPENED AGAIN THIS MORNING, WHILE MY WIFE, WHO IS 9MO PREGNANT WAS DRIVING TO WORK. UNTIL TODAY I DID NOT RESEARCH THE ISSUE ONLINE. I FOUND TODAY THAT OUR CAR WAS AMONG THE BATCH THAT DID EVENTUALLY GET THE FLUID SWAP DONE(RECALL). OURS WAS DONE WHEN WE BOUGHT IT. THEY DID NOT INFORM US THAT THE PROBLEM WAS ACTUALLY THE HECU UNIT. TODAY, I CALLED OUR LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALER, WHO TOLD ME THEY WOULD BE GLAD TO REPLACE IT, BUT THAT WE WOULD BE PAYING FOR IT ALL. I HAVE LOVED THE CAR, BUT I'M FAIRLY DISGUSTED THAT HYUNDAI HAS SO MANY DOCUMENTED CASES OF THIS PART FAILING, YET WILL NOT REPLACE IT. THE BRAKE PEDAL, AT ANY SPEED, RANDOMLY LOSES PRESSURE, AND GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. ONCE THERE, THEY FEEL LIKE THE BRAKE PADS FELL OUT. THE VEHICLE STOPS, BUT VERY ABRUPTLY. ITS TERRIFYING. THE LAST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS ROUGHLY MAY 2018. DOES NOT SEEM TO MATTER IF WE ARE PULLING OUT OF THE GARAGE, RIDING THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD, OR DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. HAPPENS IN ALL VARIETY OF SITUATIONS. TONIGHT, WE LEFT THE CAR AT MY IN-LAWS BECAUSE MY WIFE IS AFRAID TO DRIVE HER OWN CAR.
