Summary of Complaint

THE LEFT, FRONT SPRING ON MY 2013 HYUNDAI SONATA TURBO BROKE DURING NORMAL DRIVING AND PUNCTURED THE TIRE. A SIMILAR EVENT ON THE HYUNDAI SANTA FE HAS TRIGGERED A RECALL, SO IT SEEMS LIKELY THAT THE TWO VEHICLES MAY HAVE THE SAME DEFECT. I SUSPECT THAT THE TWO MODELS HAVE SIMILAR SUSPENSION DESIGN, SINCE THE SONATA TURBO MODEL HAS STIFFER SUSPENSION. I BELIEVE THAT HYUNDAI MAY HAVE SIMPLY USED THE SANTA FE'S SPRING, RATHER THAN CREATING A NEW DESIGN. THIS MULTIPLE USAGE OF PARTS IS COMMON IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY, AND MAKES SENSE AS A COST-SAVING MEASURE. THEREFORE, I THINK THE HYUNDAI SONATA MAY NEED A RECALL FOR THEIR FRONT SPRINGS ON THE SONATA TURBO MODEL. THE TURBO IS NOT A VERY COMMON MODEL, SO THERE MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN A LARGE NUMBER OF THESE FAILURES.

Summary of Complaint

I love my 2013 Hyundai Sonata SE, but with that being said I hate driving it. When on the road the 2013 has the same exact issue that the 2011's had, it will constantly wander in and out of the lane making it nearly impossible to keep a straight line. Its very fatiguing having to keep moving the steering wheel back and forth just to keep it straight. And for two its a serious safety issue!! The slightest slip could send your car off the road or into another car! When bringing the car into my local dealership they blew me off and said its " a normal thing because of the electric power steering and how the car rides the grooves of the road." And they refuse to help me out further to fix the issue. PLEASE GUYS. I know I am not the only one to report this issue please ask Hyundai to create a recall on it.

Summary of Complaint

Brake lights on the vehicle remain on and illuminated at all times. The brake lights are on while driving and pedal is not pressed as well as after vehicle is turned off and no one is in the vehicle. I checked the parking brake and it is not on either. I am concerned this will cause issues or accidents for people traveling behind me. Also do not know if this effects the battery in my vehicle. I checked and there was a recall for this very issue on a previous year Sonata and am wondering if it is now an issue for my year model as well.

Summary of Complaint

I purchased (4 tires) 205/65R16 Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 for my vehicle in January 2019. In the past few months I’ve noticed a constant rumbling noise from the rear while driving. I have had my vehicle serviced for an inspection and oil change. Each time I received no recommendations during the multipoint inspections related to my tires. The last time I took it in I mentioned that I planned to purchase new tires and the mechanic looked at me strangely. He measured that my tire thread were at a 6 and he could not see any visible defects. Once the tires were rotated the noise moved from the back to the front. There is clearly a defect with the tire and it is out of warranty to be replaced.

Summary of Complaint

1. Car was parked at a rest stop, on a hot day, and idling in "PARK" with air conditioner on. One passenger was in the car in the front passenger seat. No one was in the drivers seat. The driver of the car was about 20 feet away and making a phone call to make hotel reservations. After about 10 minutes, the car suddenly started moving in reverse, while the passenger was sitting in the passenger seat. The passenger was alarmed by this movement and tried to get out of the car on the passenger side and opened the car door. The passenger then fell to the ground and avoided the door opening, but the front wheel of the car ran over her lower right arm , breaking the large bone in the arm and causing multiple lacerations. The car proceeded in reverse, finally coming to a stop against a small hill about 100 feet away. The passenger was rushed to a hospital and received emergency care.
