Summary of Complaint

FIRST TIME THE INCIDENT HAPPENED I WAS DRIVING ABOUT 20 MPH, AND AS I MADE A LEFT TURN THE CAR DIED COMPLETELY. NO CONTROL OF STEERING AND HAD TO BRAKE VERY HARD TO GET THE CAR TO STOP. PUT IT IN PARK AND CAR STARTED RIGHT UP AGAIN. LUCKILY NO OTHER CARS WERE AROUND ME. IT HAPPENED AGAIN ABOUT 1 MONTH LATER AFTER MAKING A LEFT TURN AGAIN. TOOK THE CAR TO THE HYUNDAI SERVICE DEALER AND HE REPLACED THE THROTTLE BODY AND CLEANED ALL THE GROUNDS. THE CAR RAN GREAT FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO I WAS DRIVING ON A FREEWAY OFF RAMP GOING ABOUT 25 MPH AND THE CAR COMPLETELY DIED AGAIN. I PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND TURNED IGNITION ON AND IT STARTED RIGHT UP. ONE MORE INCIDENT OCCURRED, 2 WEEKS AGO, WHILE SLOWING TO A STOP SIGN THE CAR DIED AGAIN. I EVEN CHANGED TO A HIGHER GRADE GAS. BUT I AM STILL HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. I FEEL UNSAFE AND INSECURE DRIVING THIS VEHICLE. I DON'T THINK HYUNDAI CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WITH THESE SANTA FE'S. WE WILL BE TAKING THE CAR BACK TO THE HYUNDAI SERVICE CENTER AGAIN NEXT WEEK. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY DAUGHTER WAS TRAVELING ON THE FREEWAY I-80 AND 60 MILES OUTSIDE OF LARAMIE WYOMING, THE ENGINE MADE CLUNKING NOISES THE THE CAR SLOWED DOWN AND SHE PULLED OVER TO SIDE OF I 80 THIS WAS 18 FEB 2021. SHE WAS TOWED TO LARAMIE TIRE AND AUTO REPAIR. THEY LET US KNOW THEY FOUND METAL SHAVING IN THE OIL AND OIL FILTER AND THOUGHT IT WAS THE LOWER ENGINE BERRING THAT FAILED. AND THE ENGINE WOULD NEED TO REPLACED OR REBUILT AT A COST OF $5500 TO $45000. WE HAD THE OIL CHANGED BEFORE SHE LEFT ON THE TRIP TO CA. AFTER I COMPLAINED TO HYUNDAI BY EMAIL THEN THEY SENT ME A NOTICE OF SAFETY RECALL FOR HER CAR. WHICH I GOT ON THE 3 APRIL 2021. WE OWNED THE CAR SINCE MAY OF 2019 AND DID NOT GET THIS NOTICE IN THE 2 YEARS WE OWNED IT. NOW AFTER A TOTAL LOSS OF THE CAR WE PAID 7,000.00 IN MAY 2019, SHE TRADED IT IN, THEY WOULD ONLY GIVE HER $65.00 TRADE IN TO GET ANOTHER USED CAR. IF WE WOULD HAVE HAD THIS SAFETY RECALL BEFORE THE ENGINE FAILED ALL THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. I AM VERY DISAPOINTED IN HYUNDAI AND THEIR NOTIFICATION OF THE SAFETY RECALL.

I WAS DRIVING IN COLORADO ON I-70 AND AS I SLOWED DOWN TO EXIT, HEARD A CLICKING SOUND. THE SOUND GOT LOUDER/QUICKER WHEN I ACCELERATED. I PULLED OVER AND CHECKED BUT SAW NOTHING. I CHECKED THE OIL AND HAD A SERVICE GUY AT A SUPERSTORE CHECK IT TOO. HE SAW NO METAL PARTS IN THE OIL. NO INDICATOR LIGHTS WERE ON. IT WAS A SUNDAY AND NOTHING WAS OPEN. I TRIED TO DRIVE FARTHER AND WAS GOING 35 MILES PER HOUR UP A HILL BEHIND A TRUCK BUT AS SOON AS I TRIED TO ACCELERATE TO PASS, I HEARD A POP. THE ENGINE LIGHT AND THE OIL LIGHT CAME UP. I PULLED OVER AND TRIED TO AT LEAST ACCELERATE TO THE FREEWAY EXIT, BUT HAD AN IMMEDIATE LOSS OF POWER. I HAD TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED TWICE - ONCE TO THE CLOSEST TOWN AND THEN BACK TO DENVER TO THE DEALERSHIP (WHICH WAS AGAIN CLOSED ON SUNDAY). THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER TOLD ME THERE WAS OIL EVERYWHERE UNDER THE ENGINE. THE DEALERSHIP LOOKED AT IT A WEEK LATER AND SAID THERE WAS A HOLE IN THE SIDE OF THE ENGINE BLOCK.

WHEN DRIVING THE VEHICLE, THE VEHICLE WILL LURCH FORWARD. THIS COULD BE DONE AS I AM ACCELERATING, AS I AM BREAKING, OR AS I AM COASTING. THE DASHBOARD LIGHTS WILL THEN ALL COME ON INCLUDING THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. THE VEHICLE WILL START TO SHAKE AND UNABLE TO ACCELERATE. FORCING YOU TO PULL OFF AND PARK THE VEHICLE. WHEN YOU TURN THE VEHICLE OFF AND TURN IT BACK ON IT'S LIKE NOTHING EVER HAPPENED. THE VEHICLE HAS ALSO HAS INSTANCES WHERE THE RPM GAGE REGISTERS ZERO, EVEN AFTER YOU ARE ACCELERATING. WE HAVE HAD THE SPARK PLUGS REPLACED, THE FUEL SYSTEM LINE CLEANED OUT, WE STARTED NOTICING THE PROBLEM IN FEBRUARY IS 2020 AND THE FREQUENCY OF THE PROBLEM HAS ONLY INCREASED. THIS NOW HAPPENS ABOUT EVERY 3-4 DAYS. I HAVE 2 CHILDREN AND I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING IN THIS CAR WITH THEM. I BELIEVE THAT MY VEHICLE SHOULD BE A PART OF THE RECALL NUMBER 20V746000, OR FROM HYAUNDAI'S RECALL NUMBER 198.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 HYUNDAI SANTA FE I WAS DRIVING HOME ON THE FREEWAY, ALL OF A SUDDEN THE OIL LIGHT WENT ON. SO I IMMEDIATELY CHANGED LANES TO GET OFF THE FREEWAY. I THOUGHT I NEED TO GET OIL, THAN THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON! I REALIZED THAT I WAS LOSING POWER SO GOT TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD OUT OF HARMS WAY. I TRIED TO TURN ON THE ENGINE. THERE WAS NOTHING. I GOT TOWED TO A AUTO REPAIR SHOP. AND LEFT THE CAR OVER NIGHT. IT WAS SO LATE TO LOOK AT CAR. IN THE MORNING I CALLED TWO DIFFERENT HYUNDAI DEALERSHIPS TO GET HELP ON PERHAPS AN ENGINE RECALL. AT BOTH PLACES THE FORWARD ME TO SOMEONE TO HELP ME, BUT BOTH LOCATION HUNG UP ON ME. SO I PAID A $500 FEE TO THE REPAIR SHOP TO LOOK AT MY CAR. THEY HAD TO REMOVE THE ENGINE AND FINALLY SAID IT WOULD NEED A REBUILT ENGINE AND LABOR AT A COST OF $6000. SO I COULD AFFORD THAT. A FRIEND LOOKED UP MY VIN NUMBER AND THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON MY CAR. NOW I HAVE TO FIND A HYUNDAI SERVICE WHO WILL FIX MY RECALL PROBLEM. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT. I'M 75 AN MY HUSBAND IS 85. LOOKING TO RENT A CAR TODAY.

Summary of Complaint

MY ESC, DBC, AND ABS WARNING LIGHTS ALL ILLUMINATED AT THE SAME TIME THIS MORNING. THERE ARE MANY COMPLAINTS OF THIS HAPPENING ON NUMEROUS HYUNDAI FORMS. FOLKS HAVE BEEN TOLD TO REPLACE HUBS, SENSORS AND ASSORTED OTHER PIECES. MOST DO NOT WORK COSTING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS. MY PARTICULAR VEHICLE HAD THE LIGHTS COME ON MAYBE 6 OR 8 MONTHS AGO. GO OFF AND COME ON AGAIN AND OFF AGAIN. I'VE IGNORED THEM NOT NOTICING ANY DRIVING IMPACT. BUT THE CAR IS WARNING ME THAT IT ISN'T SAFE TO DRIVE THE CAR. THIS IS NOT A ONE OF OR TWO OR THREE ISSUE. THIS FROM ANOTHER OWNER;ALL THREE LIGHT ILLUMINATED ON MY 2011 SANTA FE SO I CHANGED MY FRONT RIGHT ABS SPEED SENSOR WHICH WAS THE CAUSE OF THE LIGHTS, BUT THE DASH LIGHTS ARE STILL ILLUMINATED. TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY SAID THERE IS A SHORT IN THE ABS SYSTEM WIRING HARNESS. WHAT'S THE COST TO FIX? $4500.00 REALLY! I THINK A RECALL IS DUE FOR THIS PROBLEM.
