Summary of Complaint

ABOUT A MONTH BEFORE THE INCIDENT, THE VEHICLE WAS FULLY IMSPECTED IN OFFICIAL DEALERSHIP, NO ISSUES REPORTED. A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE INCIDENT, THE WIPERS STARTED WORKING WITH THE ENGINE OFF; I SCHEDULED AN APPOINTMENT FOR AN INSPECTION. THE VEHICLE WAS LEASED WITH ABOUT 10 MONTHS LEFT ON THE LEASE. ON APRIL 13, 2018 AFTER DRIVING FOR 1,5-2 HOURS, I PARKED IT AND WENT TO THE OFFICE FOR 10-15 MINUTES; ON MY WAY BACK TO THE VEHICLE I HEARD THE FIRE TRUCKS COMING; AS I WAS APPROACHING MY VEHICLE I REALIZED THAT MY VEHICLE WAS ON FIRE. THE INSPECTOR REPORTED THE ENGINE EXPLOSION DUE TO MANUFACTURERS PROBLEM. SO BASICALLY HAPPY TO BE ALIVE AS NOBODY KNOWS WHAT WOULD HAD HAPPENED WITH ME AND MY KIDS IN THE VEHICLE DRIVING ON A HIGHWAY; SO AFTER MORE THAN 3,5 MONTHS HYUNDAI FINNCIAL STILL DID NOT CLOSE THE CASE ALTHOUGH THEY STATED THAT THEY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF PAYING OFF THE VEHICLE. NOBODY EVER SAID SORRY; I CALL TO HYUNDAI / HYUNDAI FINANCIAL EVERY DAY AND ALL THEY DO IS THEY TRANFER ME FROM ONE DEPARTMENT TO ANOTHER; THE CASE MANAGER ASSIGNED TO OUR CASE NEVER PICKS THE PHONE, NEVER CALLS BACK, TO REACH HIM I NEED TO CALL TO THE SUPERVISOR AND COMPLAIN AND ONLY THAN I RECEIVE A CALL FROM HIM. 2 MONTHS AGO HE STATED HE WOULD CLOSE THE CASE THE COMING MONDAY. NO ACTIONS SINCE THEN SO FAR.

Summary of Complaint

HEADLIGHTS ARE SET IN 'AUTO' MODE, BUT ERRATICALLY/SPORADICALLY WITH NO RHYME OR REASON, THEY WILL SHUT OFF, THEN TURN ON. ONE TIME I WAS ABLE TO RECORD THE EVENT ON MY PHONE (AVAILABLE IS REQUESTED). BUT ANOTHER TIME THEY TURNED OFF THEN ON (LIKE I WAS FLASHING MY LIGHTS) WHILE DRIVING. ANOTHER CAR WAS TRYING TO ENTER TRAFFIC AND THOUGHT I WAS FLASHING HIM TO ENTER, RESULTING WITH ME HARD-BRAKING TO AVOID HITTING THE ENTERING CAR. THIS 'FLASHING' OF LIGHTS HAS HAPPENED ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION, BUT I CAN'T DUPLICATE ON DEMAND (WHICH IS WHY THE HYUNDAI DEALER IS STATING THEY CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THIS IS A DRIVING SAFETY ISSUE. THIS HAS HAPPENED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS, BUT I INDICATED THE LATEST BELOW.

VIN: KMHGN4JE0GU****

Summary of Complaint

THE FIRST INCIDENCE OCCURRED A FEW MONTHS AFTER PURCHASE WHEN WE NOTICED THAT AN EMERGENCY WARNING LIGHT WENT OFF WHILE TRAVELING TO A VACATION. IT THEN WENT OFF AFTER A FEW HOURS SO WE WAITED UNTIL OUR RETURN TO REPORT IT TO THE DEALER, SUNBURY MOTOR COMPANY HYUNDAI DIVISION IN SUNBURY, PA. THEY SET UP AN APPOINTMENT AND I ASSUMED FIXED THE PROBLEM BECAUSE THIS SPECIFIC LIGHT NEVER WENT ON AGAIN. WE DID NOTICE AND REPORTED THAT AT TIMES THE BEEPING AND LIGHTING UP OF THE COLLISION WARNING SAFETY FEATURE DID NOT WORK PROPERLY. THIS ACTUALLY RESULTING IN A SMALL SCRAP DIRECTLY BELOW THE SENSOR WHILE PARKING. WE MADE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT BUT THEY COULD NOT FIND THE CAUSE. I ASKED OUR SALESPERSON, CHRIS FAUST, IF THIS WOULD RESULT IN A CHARGE ON OUR LEASED VEHICLE AND HE SAID NO IT WAS AN EASY FIX. WE WERE LEAVING FOR OUR ANNUAL SNOWBIRD TRIP TO FLORIDA IN A FEW DAYS AND THE LEASE WAS OVER SHORTLY AFTER WE RETURNED HOME SO I SAID IT WASN'T THAT NOTICEABLE. WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE IT IN FOR REPAIR. CHRIS SAID THAT IT WOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM UPON INSPECTION AND IF QUESTIONED THEY WOULD REPAIR IT BEFORE. I SAID FINE. WHILE IN FLORIDA, CLOSE TO THE TIME FOR OUR TRIP HOME WE WERE ALMOST IN AN ACCIDENT WHEN A VEHICLE SUDDENLY STOPPED IN FRONT OF US WHILE PULLING OUT OF A SHOPPING CENTER UNTO A BUSY STREET. NONE OF THE WARNING SYSTEMS OR AUTO BRAKING SYSTEMS WORKED AND THE RESULT WAS MISSING THE VEHICLE BY INCHES ALONG WITH SEVERELY JOLTING MY WIFE AND I. IT DID RESULT IN A NECK INJURY TO ME WHICH I THOUGHT WAS MUSCULAR AND WOULD GO AWAY BUT IT DID NOT. THE INJURY WAS TREATED AND IS STILL BEING TREATED. AFTER READING SOME OF THE SAFETY ISSUES WITH THE HYUNDAI GENESIS WE DECIDED NOT TO PURCHASE THE VEHICLE. BOTH HYUNDAI AND SUNBURY MOTORS WERE AWARE OF THE LAST INCIDENCE BUT HAVE NOT ACKNOWLEDGED IT. OUR ATTORNEY RECOMMENDED THAT WE MAKE YOU AWARE OF THE ISSUE.

THEN I OPENED THE SUNROOF WINDOW AND PIECES OF GLASS STARTED TO FALL OVER MY HEAD AND ALL OVER MY CAR. THIS IS RIDICULOUS, WHY HYUNDAI IS USING SO CHEAP GLASS THAT EXPLODES WHEN DRIVING UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES? THEY NEED TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THAT AND ADMITTED THEY HAVE A PROBLEM. I RESEARCH ONLINE, AND THERE'S A LAWSUIT IN WHICH THEY AGREED TO FIX IT BUT WHO KNOWS, THAT WAS IN 2019. I WILL TAKE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP, BUT THE EXPERIENCE ISN'T A PLEASANT ONE.

I THINK IT'S A SERIOUS PROBLEM OF THE STEERING WHEEL WHICH SHOULD USE THING THAT IS A STRONG MATERIALS AND DESIGN AGAINST EXTERNAL INFLUENCES. IT IS NECESSARY TO INVESTIGATE WHETHER THE STRENGTH OF STEERING WHEEL PARTS IS PROPER. I KNOW THAT THE COMPANY HAS RECALLED SIMILAR PROBLEMS IN OTHER MODELS.

VEHICLE ONLY HAD ABOUT 2000 MILES WHEN IT FIRST DID THIS. DASH DISPLAY MALFUNCTION. WHEN BACKING UP DISPLAY IS BLACKED OUT. YOU CAN'T SEE ANY VIDEO FROM BACK UP CAMERA. ALSO DISPLAY GOES OUT WHILE DRIVING. GAVE VIDEO EVIDENCE TO DEALER SO THEY KNOW I'M NOT CRAZY. SOMETIMES YOU TURN CAR OFF AND LOCK THE CAR AND THE DISPLAY IS STILL PLAYING. DEALER COULD GET THIS ISSUE TO RECREATE WHILE IN THERE POSSESSION FOR FOUR TRIES LATER IS STILL DOES NOT WORK. THIS IS EVEN AFTER A "FINAL" REPAIR WAS OFFERED BY THE DEALER WHICH CONSISTED OF A TOTAL DASH REPLACEMENT THE MANAGER SAID COST HYUNDAI OVER $5000.
