Summary of Complaint

AIR BAG RED LIGHT ON FAILED TO TURN OFF AFTER FIRST STARTING THE ENGINE (NORMALLY IT WOULD TURN OFF AFTER ABOUT 5 SECS AFTER STARTING THE ENGINE) AND REMAINED ON AT REGULAR DRIVING SPEEDS. IT NEVER WENT OFF REGARDLESS OF SPEEDS RANGING FROM 0 (STANDING STILL) TO 70 MPH (THE LATTER SPEED ON INTERSTATE HIGHWAY). IT NEVER WENT OFF REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT A PERSON WAS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP, WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED. AFTER DIAGNOSTIC TESTS, I WAS TOLD BY THE SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE THE PROBLEM WAS A BAD SENSOR IN THE PASSENGER'S SEAT, AND IT WOULD COST ABOUT $2,600.00 TO FIX IT. SINCE THE SEAT WOULD HAVE TO BE TAKEN APART TO FIX THE SENSOR, A REPLACEMENT SEAT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TO BE ORDERED, THUS THE HIGH COST.. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT SINCE THE AIRBAG LIGHT NOW REMAINS ON, THE AIR BAG SYSTEM IS NO LONGER FUNCTIONAL AND THE AIRBAGS WILL NOT DEPLOY AS DESIGNED. I DID NOT ELECT TO FIX THE SENSOR BECAUSE OF THE EXPENSE AND ALSO NEEDING TO FIX THE AIR CONDITIONER, WHICH COST OVER $600.00. I AM NOW DRIVING A VEHICLE WITHOUT A FUNCTIONAL AIRBAG SYSTEM. *TR

Summary of Complaint

ON MARCH 4, 2020, HEADING HOME AT NIGHT ON A CURVY MOUNTAIN ROAD MY CAR (2006 HYUNDAI SANTA FE) SUDDENLY JERKED, STARTED TO ACCELERATE TO OVER 80 MILES HOUR. AT THE SAME TIME HALF OF THE PANEL LIGHT BEHIND PART OF THE RPM'S AND HALF BEHIND THE MPH WENT OUT; THE REST OF THE PANEL WAS STILL LIT UP; I WAS HEADING DOWN THE CURVY ROAD ACCELERATING HEADING QUICKLY TOWARDS AN 18 WHEELER WHEN I TRIED TO BRAKE, MY BRAKE PEDAL WOULD NOT MOVE AND MY CAR KEPT ACCELERATING (I WAS NOT STEPPING ON THE GAS PEDAL). I QUICKLY DROPPED MY CAR INTO LOW GEAR AND MANEUVERED AROUND THE 18-WHEELER AND TRYING THE BRAKES, THE EMERGENCY BRAKES, AND AS QUICKLY AS IT STARTED UP, IT STOPPED, AND MY CAR STARTED TO DRIVE NORMAL (EXCEPT THE PANEL LIGHTS). ON MY WAY HOME (MARCH 5TH), IT HAPPENED AGAIN WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE CURVY MOUNTAIN ROAD AT NIGHT! AS I BEGIN DESCENDING THE CURVY ROAD (DRIVING 40MPH IN THE RIGHT LANE), MY CAR SUDDENLY BEGAN ACCELERATING AGAIN UP TO 90MPH! THERE WERE NOT AS MANY PEOPLE ON THE ROAD, SO I WAS ABLE TO MANEUVER IT BY DROPPING DOWN INTO LOW GEAR AND AS I BEGAN ASCENDING THE MOUNTAIN ROAD, THE UNINTENDED ACCELERATION STOPPED, AND THE CAR DROVE NORMAL. EACH INCIDENT LASTED ABOUT 5 MINUTES. ON MARCH 6, 2020, I TOOK MY CAR TO THE MECHANIC AND RAN A DIAGNOSTIC AND DID NOT FIND A CAUSE. HE TOLD ME TO CALL THE HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP TO SEE IF THERE WERE ANY RECALLS. THE DEALERSHIP INFORMED ME TO CONTACT HYUNDAI HEADQUARTERS, WHICH I DID. I REPORTED MY ISSUE AND MADE A CLAIM ON MARCH 6, 2020. I WAS TOLD TO TAKE MY CAR TO CAPITAL HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP AND HYUNDAI HEADQUARTERS WOULD SEND A FORENSIC ENGINEER OUT TO INVESTIGATE THE ISSUE. THEY TOLD ME TO NOT DRIVE MY CAR AND HAVE IT TOWED. I RECEIVED A CALL FROM HYUNDAI HEADQUARTERS INFORMING ME THE DEALERSHIP RAN A DIAGNOSTIC ON MY CAR AND DID NOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG AND COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE UNINTENDED ACCELERATION.

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR BEGAN TO SUDDENLY AND AUTOMATICALLY ACCELERATE WHILE DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY ON AUGUST 4, 2019. THE SPEED ACCELERATED UP TO ABOUT 80MPH BEFORE BEING ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO SLOW DOWN. THE BRAKES WERE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO DEPRESS. I HAD TO KEEP MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL AND PRESS AS HARD AS I COULD IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CAR FROM ACCELERATING AGAIN. THANK GOD, THERE WERE NO CARS DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME OR ON THE SIDE OF MY CAR BECAUSE THIS WOULD HAVE CAUSED A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT. I WAS EVENTUALLY ABLE TO PULL OVER ONTO THE SHOULDER, BUT I WAS UNABLE TO COMPLETELY STOP THE CAR FROM MOVING EVEN THOUGH SHIFTING TO PARK. THE CAR WOULD NOT STOP MOVING FORWARD UNTIL I SHUT THE ENGINE OFF, WHICH CAUSED A VERY LOUD NOISE. MY CAR HAD TO BE TOWED TO THE CLOSEST HYUNDAI DEALER. THE SERVICE MAN AT THE DEALERSHIP DIAGNOSED, REPAIRED, INSPECTED AS WELL AS TEST DROVE THE CAR. THE COST FOR REPAIRS WERE CLOSE TO $900.00. NOW, ON THE WAY HOME AFTER PICKING UP MY CAR FROM BEING REPAIRED ON AUGUST 8, 2019, THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. THIS TIME IT WAS ON A CITY STREET WHILE TRAILING MY HUSBAND AT ABOUT 40MPH WHEN MY CAR BEGAN TO ACCELERATE AGAIN. AND AGAIN, THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THE CAR WAS TO PRESS THE BRAKE AS HARD AS I COULD, PUT IT IN PARK AND TURN OFF THE ENGINE. FOR ANYONE TO DRIVE THIS CAR IS VERY UNSAFE AND DANGEROUS. I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE THIS CAR AGAIN EVEN IF IT IS REPAIRED . THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A VERY SERIOUS OR FATAL ACCIDENT. THE CAR WAS TOWED AGAIN TO A HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP NEARBY. I CALLED HYUNDAI HEADQUARTERS CUSTOMER SERVICE TO REPORT THE INCIDENT AND TO FIND OUT IF THERE WERE ANY RECALLS ON MY CAR. I WAS TOLD THAT THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO RECALLS. A CASE MANAGER CALLED ME BACK BUT COULD NOT REALLY HELP. SHE SAID THEY COULD POSSIBLY HELP WITH THE REIMBURSEMENT FOR A CAR RENTAL IF I DECIDED TO RENT A CAR WHILE MY CAR IS BEING REPAIRED.

Summary of Complaint

AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT REMAINED ON AFTER INITIAL STARTUP DISPLAY. CODE READER INDICATED B1511 CODE, SHORT BETWEEN DRIVER SIDE SEAT BELT BUCKLE AND BATTERY. FURTHER EVALUATION DEMONSTRATED THAT SEAT BELT WARNING LIGHT DID NOT DISPLAY AT ALL, WHETHER BELT WAS BUCKLED OR UNBUCKLED. INTERNET RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT THIS FAULT MAY PREVENT AIR BAG FROM FUNCTIONING IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT. TO EVALUATE FURTHER, AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT WAS RESET TO CHECK FOR RECURRENCE. CODE RECURRED. IT WAS NOTED THAT CODE COULD BE PREVENTED AND SEAT BELT WARNING LIGHT WOULD DISPLAY PROPERLY IF THE DRIVER SEAT BELT BUCKLE WAS PRESSED DOWNWARD AND SLIGHTLY TOWARD THE DRIVER. THIS WAS CONSISTENT WITH OBSERVATION THAT FOLLOWING A RESET, AIR BAG LIGHT RECURRED WHEN VEHICLE TURNED LEFT, CAUSING DRIVER TO SHIFT AGAINST BUCKLE. INTERMITTENT FAILURE OF SEAT BELT LIGHT WAS OBSERVED WHILE VEHICLE WAS PARKED AND ALSO MOVING SLOWLY. DRIVER IS UNWILLING TO REMOVE SEAT BELT DURING HIGHWAY DRIVING TO EVALUATE FURTHER. HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA HAS DENIED RESPONSIBILITY FOR REPAIR OF THIS SAFETY ISSUE. INTERNET SEARCHES INDICATE THAT THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED OCCURRENCE, AND FURTHER THAT THERE HAVE BEEN RECALLS ON VEHICLES BUILT ON THE SAME OR SIMILAR PLATFORM.

DRIVER ALMOST WRECKED SEVERAL CARS WHILE TRYING TO DODGE TRAFFIC AS CAR ACCELERATED VERY RAPIDLY. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN HAD A TRAGIC ENDING BUT FORTUNATELY ONLY RESULTED IN A MECHANICS' VISIT.

Summary of Complaint

ON OR ABOUT JULY 1ST 2015 I WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE THE BRAKE PADS ON MY HYUNDAI SANTA FE. UPON REMOVAL OF THE TIRE I NOTICE THAT THE BRAKE BACKING PLATE WAS RUSTED THROUGH AND WAS HANGING BY A SLIVER OF RUSTY METAL. THIS AUTO USES A MINIATURE DRUM BRAKE AFFAIR ON THE REAR WHEELS TO ACTUATE THE PARKING BRAKE. IN MY OPINION, IF THE CENTER OF THE BACKING PLATE RUSTS AWAY AND CAUSES THE BRAKE SHOE RETAINING PINS TO COME OUT THE BRAKE SHOE COULD CONTACT THE METAL DRUM AREA WHICH WOULD CAUSE THE AUTO TO HAVE IT'S PARKING BRAKE ENGAGE WITHOUT WARNING, LOCKING UP THE REAR DRIVE WHEELS, WHICH COULD RESULT IN AN SERIOUS ACCIDENT. THIS AUTO WAS INTO THE DEALER FOR AN OIL CHANGE IN JUNE OF 2015 AND AT THAT TIME THE SERVICE WRITER INFORMED ME THAT THE BRAKE PADS NEEDED CHANGING BUT NO MENTION WAS MADE OF THE RUSTED OUT BACKING PLATE EVEN THOUGH IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT IT NEEDED REPLACEMENT. I ALSO BELIEVE THAT A BACKING PLATE SHOULD NOT RUST THROUGH IN LESS THAN 10 YEARS. I BASE THIS ON THE FACT THAT I WORKED FOR A SERVICE GARAGE FOR OVER 10 YEARS AND HAVE DONE THE WORK ON MY OWN VEHICLES FOR OVER 40 YEARS AND IN MY EXPERIENCE BACKING PLATES SHOULD NOT RUST TO THE POINT OF PERFORATION IN LESS THAN 10 YEARS.

TRAVELING SLOWLY ON A SIDE ROAD, THE FRONT PASSANGER SIDE OF MY SANTA FE COLLAPSED WITH THE SOUND OF A TERRIFIC BOOM. THE COIL SPRING ON THE PASSANGER SIDE HAD BROKEN AND DUG LIKE A KNIFE INTO THE TIRE, SHREDDING THE TIRE ALMOST ALL THE WAY AROUND, LEAVING A DEEP, WIDE GASH. UPON INSPECTION, I SAW THAT PART OF THE COIL HAD BROKEN OFF. THIS PROBLEM IS RELATED TO HYUNDIA'S "CAPAIGN 124," A RECALL FOR INSPECTION AND POSSIBLE REPLACEMENT OF FRONT END COIL SPRINGS.

Summary of Complaint

AT FIRST I NOTICED THAT SOMETIMES (RANDOMLY) WHEN I STARTED MY CAR AFTER SITTING FOR A LONGER PERIOD LIKE 6 OR 8 HOURS THAT I'D TURN THE KEY AND WITHOUT PRESSING ANY PEDALS THE VEHICLE'S RPMS START TO CLIMB UP SLOWLY. IT MAX'S OUT AT 4000RPMS AND STAYS THERE FOR AWHILE THEN WILL DECREASE ON ITS OWN AFTER AWHILE (RANDOM TIMING ALWAYS). IF I STEP ON THE GAS AS ITS REVVING UP IT RELEASES AND GOES BACK DOWN. IF I BRAKE IT DOES NOTHING. SO AFTER A FEW WEEKS OF NOTICING THIS PROBLEM, TAKING IT TO THE MECHANIC AND HAVING THE THROTTLE BODY CLEANED, AND A GASKET REPLACED THE VEHICLE HAS NOW STARTED TO REV UP ON ITS OWN AFTER I RELEASE THE GAS PEDAL WHEN DRIVING AT HIGH SPEEDS OF 80 OR OVER. I LET OFF THE GAS THEN IT REVS UP QUICKLY TO 4000 THEN AGAIN QUICKLY SHOOTS BACK DOWN BELOW NORMAL. IT DIDN'T DO THE HIGHWAY PROBLEM AS MUCH I NOTICED WHEN THE FUEL WAS LOW, BUT WHEN I FILLED MY TANK THE PROBLEM CAME BACK AGAIN. IT DID STILL REV ON IT'S OWN FROM COLD START THE WHOLE TIME STILL REGARDLESS OF FUEL LEVEL. I NOTICED THIS WEEK IT NOW JUMPS WHEN I PUT IT IN DRIVE OR REVERSE AFTER A COLD START AND THE OTHER DAY IT SEEMED TO LOSE ITS GUSTO AS I WAS TURNING A CORNER, THEN IT REVVED HIGH AND WENT BACK TO NORMAL. THIS IS ALL VERY SCARY AND I AM CONCERNED AS I READ MORE AND MORE THAT THIS IS A WIDE SPREAD PROBLEM THAT COULD CAUSE INJURY OR FATALITY. NO ONE SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO SAY WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, JUST THAT IT COULD BE A BUNCH OF THINGS. *TR

I BOUGHT A 2006 HYUNDAI SANTA FE ON JUNE 22, 2006 . IN JULY 2006 I TOOK A TRIP TO SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS. WHILE I WAS OUT THERE, MY ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND WENT OFF A FEW DAYS LATER. AFTER A FEW MONTHS WHEN IT CAME BACK ON I TOOK IT TO RAY BRYANT SERVICE CENTER WHERE I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE. THEY CHECKED IT AND GOT THE LIGHT TO GO OFF. AS I WAS ON MY WAY HOME THE LIGHT CAME BACK. EVERY TIME I BROUGHT IT BACK THE LIGHT WOULD COME BACK ON AND IS STILL ON. SOMETIMES AS I'M DRIVING IT FEELS LIKE IT LOSES POWER . I ALSO BROUGHT IT IN FOR THE FRONT END BECAUSE IT ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I HAVE AN EGG IN THE LEFT FRONT TIRE. INSTEAD OF THE SERVICE WORKER DIDN'T CHECK IT OUT HE SAID HE HAD A SANTA FE JUST LIKE MINE AND THAT HIS DIDN'T DO THAT AND NEVER DID A THING ABOUT IT. I'VE BROUGHT IT TO ANOTHER MECHANIC AND HE COULDN'T FIND THE PROBLEM. I'VE BOUGHT NEW TIRES AND THE SAME PROBLEM, SO I BROUGHT IT BACK TELLING THEM THAT IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE AN EGG IN THE TIRE THEY CHECKED IT AND CAN' FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE TIRES. AS TIME GOES BY THE PROBLEM IS GETTING WORST. I FEEL REALLY EMBARRASSED WHEN I HAVE SOMEONE IN MY TRUCK AND IT RIDES LIKE THAT. I DO HOPE THAT THERE'S SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS PROBLEM BECAUSE I AM ON DISABILITY AND CAN'T AFFORD TO BUY ANOTHER VEHICLE. I REALLY LOVE MY SANTA FE.
