Summary of Complaint

The DAB module assembly (air bag system) driver's side has to be replaced due to failure. Only warning was a creaking sound from the steering column when turning. Although I have an extended warranty, never been in an accident, and the car is only 6 years old with 44,000 miles, the extended warranty for the air bags is only for 5 years. The cost to replace the DAB is over $900.00. I feel strongly that Hyundai should cover the cost.

Summary of Complaint

DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS(DRL) AND FRONT TURN SIGNAL BULBS BURN OUT VERY FREQUENTLY DUE TO THE FACT THEY ARE THE SAME FILAMENT IN THE BULB EVEN THOUGH THEY REQUIRE A DUAL FILAMENT BULB. THE WIRING HARNESSES ALSO SHOW SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OF OVERHEATING. THIS IS A VERY WIDELY-KNOWN ISSUE IN THE ONLINE FORUMS FOR THIS CAR AND IS A COMPLETELY UNSAFE ISSUE. THE DRIVERS SIDE BULB IS EASY TO REPLACE, BUT THE PASSENGER SIDE IS NOT. I HAVE REPLACED THE DRIVERS SIDE 3 TIMES AND THE PASSENGER SIDE 2 TIMES IN THE LAST YEAR. BETWEEN BULBS AND MECHANIC FEES FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE, I HAVE SPENT $200-$300 IN THE LAST YEAR MAINTAIN THIS UNSAFE PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

VEHICLE WILL SHIFT HARSHLY/JERK AT LOW SPEEDS (MOST COMMON AFTER ACCELERATING FROM A STOP AS WELL AS IN STOP AND GO TRAFFIC). VEHICLE TAKES LONGER TO CHANGE GEARS (RPMS HANG THEN DROP). DOWN-SHIFTING SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE AS WELL; DELAYED DOWN-SHIFT AS THE VEHICLE IS COMING TO A STOP . BEHAVIOR STARTED AROUND 75,000 MILES. TRANSMISSION ALSO ACTS AS IF IT IS SLIPPING AND THEN SUDDENLY ENGAGES, JUST AS IF IT WAS IN NEUTRAL MOMENTARILY AND THEN DROPPED INTO GEAR. I WOULD CHARACTERIZE THIS UNPREDICTABLE LURCHING BEHAVIOR (A RESULT OF THE HARSH UP- AND DOWN-SHIFTS) AS A SAFETY ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING NORTHBOUND ON I-295 IN WASHINGTON, DC WHEN MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ILLUMINATED AND THE CAR BEGAN TO SLOW DOWN IN EXTREMELY HEAVY TRAFFIC AND I LOST THE ABILITY TO ACCELERATE. I ATTEMPTED TO ACCELERATE IN ORDER TO GET MY VEHICLE OFF THE BUSY HIGHWAY AND TO A SAFER LOCATION, BUT I WAS NOT ABLE TO GO MORE THAN A FEW METERS. IT WAS FORTUNATE THAT I WAS NOT SERIOUSLY HURT OR KILLED. THIS IS CLEARLY A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND I AM SURPRISED THAT THERE HAS NOT BEEN A RECALL TO FIX THIS PROBLEM, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT IT APPEARS TO BE SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO MANY HYUNDAI VEHICLES FOR SOME TIME NOW. AFTER MORE THAN ONE (1) HOUR, I WAS RESCUED BY A TOWING COMPANY THAT LEFT MY CAR AT THE DEALERSHIP. THE DEALERSHIP HAS DISCOVERED THAT I REQUIRE AT LEAST A THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY TO REPAIR THE ISSUE AND HAS ORDERED THE PARTS WHICH MEANS THAT I AM RENTING A CAR UNTIL THE REPAIRS ARE MADE (THE PART WILL TAKE SEVERAL DAYS TO BE DELIVERED). AFTER THE THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY IS INSTALLED, THE DEALERSHIP WILL RESCAN TO SEE IF THAT ELIMINATES SOME OF THE OTHER CODES THAT WERE DISCOVERED.

Summary of Complaint

ESC failed. I was attempting to make a left turn from a stopped position at a typical intersection. I lost control of the vehicle as it started to fishtail once I began the turn. Brakes did not respond and I ended up hitting the curb on the outer lane with both front and rear tires. Side curtain and passenger seat airbags deployed. Vehicle is now a total loss. I believe the faulty ESC poises a lot more risk that just a fire. From other reports on genesis forums by consumers like me, this problem with Hyundai's ESC seems to be a common and reoccurring problem. Recall should be updated to include that ESC may fail and makes the vehicle unsafe to drive.

VIN: KMHGN4JE0FU****

Summary of Complaint

The rear passenger door will not open from inside or from outside of the vehicle. The door lock mechanism has failed internally while the door was shut. This causes a safety issue as passengers are not able to exit the vehicle in an emergency event. Worse, a child car seat is not able to be accessed as the door will not open. There are not warning lights in the vehicle to alert you that the door lock/handle mechanism has failed. Hyundai/Genesis will not repair the defective components under warranty, as they consider it a wear item. As the door will not open it is extremely difficult to repair this issue. The door panel has to be cut off which renders it destroyed. The door lock/latch mechanism has failed at 60000 miles and with a vehicle that is 6 years old. This is a huge safety issue as people will become trapped in a crash, which can lead to injury and loss of life.

Summary of Complaint

There is an electrical issue that could malfunction internally and cause an electrical short, potentially resulting in an engine compartment fire. The front bulb for the daylight running lamps/ lane changing blinker has been consistently stopped working and/or blown out. The dealer where I purchased the vehicle has worked on the vehicle a minimum of six times, changing the electrical harnesses (among other things) with no success. When looking up this issue on the internet, other owners have reported this problem with the 2015 model and older Hyundai Genesis. Hyundai did changed the daylight running lights in 2016. On a few occasions (3 times), the headlights turned off at night which may or may not be related. I have another appointment in ten days to address the situation once again.

This issue has started with my car stalling out in a parking lot sitting idle. The car just turned off. I restarted the car and it turned off again. After this happened i have noticed turning my car on its slow - like the battery is dieing. I went to Hyundai to get a diagostic test and nothing came up and they could not duplicate the car turning over slowly. Since then my car is still slow to start - "sometimes" . NOW, I can go out and if I have to make several stops - it is garanteed to start slow and get stuck with the Auto Brake on - Which you can not release. I have a picture of the dashboard and a video of what happens when I drive - no RPM. This is causing me not to drive this car - I use to be a very happy Hyundai Genesis owner.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT OR DURING DAY, MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH THAT CONTROLS HEADLAMPS WILL, WITHOUT INTERACTION, FLIP THE LIGHTS FROM AUTO TO OFF. THIS LEADS TO EITHER THE DRLS BLINKING LIKE I HAVE AN EMERGENCY, OR THE HEADLAMPS TURNING OFF WHILE I'M DRIVING DOWN AN UNLIT HIGHWAY AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. IT'S EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND NEEDS A RECALL...NOT A WARRANTY EXTENSION. PARTICULARLY WHEN THE SERVICING DEALERS REFUSE TO REPLACE UNDER SAID WARRANTY BECAUSE "THEY CANNOT REPLICATE THE ISSUE".
