VIN: 5NPEB4AC2CH****

Summary of Complaint

IN JULY 2019 I NOTICED THAT THE BRAKE LIGHTS CAME ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, ALTHOUGH THERE IS NOBODY IN THE CAR AT THAT TIME. FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS THE BRAKE LIGHT WERE TUNING ON EVEN WHEN I WAS NOT PRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL. IN THE SAME TIME THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL STARTED TO TAKE OVER AND IT REFUSED TO ACCELERATE WHEN I PRESSED THE GAS PEDAL. THE ONLY WAY I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT WORK WAS TO DEPRESS THE GAS PEDAL AND THEN PRESS IT AGAIN. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE MECHANIC BECAUSE IT WAS BEHAVING VERY STRANGE. THE MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT THE PROBLEM IS A RUBBER STOPPER THAT KEPT THE BREAK PEDAL IN PLACE. WHEN IT IS WORN, IT BEHAVES AS IF SOMEBODY TRIED TO HIT THE BREAK. AFTER THE PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED I DISCOVERED THAT THERE IS RECALL 136 THE ACCURATELY DESCRIBES MY PROBLEM FOR MY CAR MODEL. I CONTACTED HYUNDAI ABOUT A POSSIBLE RECALL BUT I GOT NO RESPONSE.

Summary of Complaint

AIRBAG LIGHT STAYS ON. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS ONLINE AND THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING. I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR THE AIRBAG AND THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. THE LIGHT STAYS ON WHILE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION OR IDLING. AS FAR AS THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, SOMETIMES IT WILL GO OFF, I HAVE TO STOP MY CAR, PULL THE FUSE PANEL AND UNPLUG SOMETHING, WAIT A FEW MINUTES THEN PUSH IT BACK IN AND THEN MY RADIO, LIGHTS, ETC WORK AGAIN. THE ELECTRICAL HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR SEVERAL YEARS OFF AND ON. THE AIRBAG LIGHT STAYING ON IS IN IT'S SECOND WEEK. I JUST REPLACED MY BATTERY AND THE LIGHT IS STILL ON.
