Complaints Assosiated with VIN KMHGN4JE8FU020804

Components: STEERING ELECTRICAL SYSTEM SERVICE BRAKES

September 09, 2021
NHTSA ID Number: 11433388
Consumer Location: MANHATTAN BEACH, CA
VIN: KMHGN4JE8FU****

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.

Consumer Location: BOCA RATON, FL
VIN: KMHGN4JE8FU****

Summary of Complaint

WHILE GRADUALLY ACCELERATING FROM 20 THROUGH 40 MILES AN HOUR, THE ENGINE WILL REV TO APPROXIMATELY 6000 RPM. DURING THAT HI REV, THE CAR WILL NOT INCREASE IN SPEED (LIKE IT'S IN NEUTRAL) THEN AFTER APPROXIMATELY 5 SECONDS, THERE IS A LOUD BANG NOISE IN THE CAR LURCHES FORWARD AND RAPIDLY ACCELERATES. IT FEELS AS IF I WERE HIT IN THE BACK BY ANOTHER CAR. THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE IN THE 1 1/2 YEARS THAT I HAVE OWNED THE CAR. SINCE IT IS A VERY INTERMITTENT AND UNPREDICTABLE PROBLEM. EVEN THOUGH I'VE BROUGHT THE CAR INTO THE DEALER TWICE, THEY'VE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND ANY DEFECT. THIS IS CLEARLY A SAFETY DEFECT. I THINK, LIKELY SECONDARY TO SOME TRANSMISSION ISSUE. THE DEALER AND FACTORY SAY THERE'S NOTHING ELSE THEY CAN DO. UNLESS THEY HAVE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED THE PROBLEM THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING. I EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT EVEN IF THEY TOOK THE CAR ON A SIX-MONTH TEST DRIVE, IT MIGHT NOT HAPPEN AT ALL. WHEN IT DOES HAPPEN, HOWEVER, IT IS TERRIFYING AND DANGEROUS.
