Summary of Complaint

THE BREAK LIGHTS KEEP BURNING OUT. THEY HAVE MELTED THE PLASTIC THAT HOLDS THE LIGHT BULB. I REPLACE THE LIGHT BULBS ONCE A MONTH. IT SEEMS LIKE IT HAS A BAD POWER SURGE OR FAULTY WIRES. I HAVE SWITCHED TO LED LIGHT BULBS AND THEY STILL DON'T WORK. I HAVE SEEN THOUSANDS OF OTHER HYUNDAI SONATA DRIVERS SAY THE SAME EXACT COMPLAINT. I AM HIGHLY SURPRISED THAT THIS HAS NOT ALREADY BEEN A RECALL DUE TO AN EXTREME SAFETY ISSUE OF THE ELECTRICAL AND WIRING SYSTEM. HYUNDAI SONATA DRIVERS ARE GETTING PULLED OVER A LOT DUE TO THIS DEFECT AND ARE REPLACING BULBS AT AN EXTREMELY HIGH RATE THAN THEY SHOULD BE. THIS NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED AND RECALLED FOR CUSTOMERS SAFETY. THIS IS AN ONGOING ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

THE ENGINE IN THIS PARTICULAR MODEL IS HYUNDAI'S 2.4L GDI (THETA II). THE ENGINE SEIZED WITHOUT WARNING EVEN THOUGH IT HAD THE SOFTWARE UPDATE THAT DETECTS ENGINE WEAR AND PREVENTS ENGINE FAILURE WHILE DRIVING. HYUNDAI DID WELL AND REPLACED THE ENGINE UNDER WARRANTY AND PROVIDED ME A RENTAL VEHICLE. 8,000 MILES LATER WITH THE SAME VEHICLE NOW THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS FLASHING AND ACCELERATION IS DRAMATICALLY REDUCED. I WAS ABLE TO TAKE SOME BACKROADS WITH LITTLE TRAFFIC TO A LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP AND AM WAITING FOR DIAGNOSIS AGAIN.THIS STARTED ON A VERY BUSY LOCAL HIGHWAY.
