COMPLETE BRAKE FAILURE. THIS IS THE THIRD OCCASION THAT THE BRAKES ON MY 2005 HYUNDAI TUCSON HAVE FAILED. SO FAR ALL THREE OF THE INCIDENTS HAVE OCCURRED WHILE TRYING TO GRADUALLY BRAKE FROM A SPEED OF AROUND 35 MPH. THE BRAKE PEDDLE TRAVELS ALL THE WAY DOWN AS IF THERE WAS NO RESISTANCE AND THE CAR KEEPS ON GOING. THE ONLY WAY THAT I WAS ABLE TO COME TO A SKIDDING HALT WAS BY USING THE EMERGENCY BRAKE LEVER. I HAVE HAD THE HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP INSPECT THE AUTO BUT THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO FIND ANYTHING THAT WOULD CAUSE THE BRAKES NOT TO WORK. IT'S A ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. *TR

Summary of Complaint

INITIAL ISSUES ON VEHICLE PRESENTED IN JANUARY 2021 WITH VARIOUS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CODES INCLUDING P0133. ALTHOUGH VEHICLE PASSED EMISSIONS IN 2020, VARIOUS CHECK ENGINE CODES FOR MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR, OXYGEN SENSORS, MISFIRE FOR VARIOUS CYLINDERS. AFTER REPLACING INDICATED MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR, OXYGEN SENSORS INDICATED VIA OBD II TOOL, BATTERY, ALTERNATOR (MORE THAN ONCE), BOTH FRONT CV BOOTS, HEAD GASKET SEALS FOR BOTH CYLINDER BANKS, MORE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ISSUES APPEAR ACCORDING TO THE VEHICLE. CURRENTLY ANOTHER CYLINDER MISFIRE CHECK ENGINE CODE HAS APPEARED AFTER ALL SPARK PLUGS HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH OEM RECOMMENDED BRAND REPLACEMENTS (NKG PRE-GAPPED SPARK PLUGS). THE MISFIRE CODE HAS CLEARED AT THIS TIME. THE CURRENT CHECK ENGINE CODE FROM THE OBD II TOOL IS ERROR CODE FOR DRIVE TRAIN DRIVEABILITY P0420 REGARDING CATALYST SYSTEM OPERATING BELOW THRESHOLD AT BANK 1. I HAVE UTILIZED LOCAL STORE CATALYTIC CLEANER LIQUIDS TO CLEAN THE SYSTEM, WHICH HAS NOT RESOLVED THIS ISSUE. ADDITIONALLY, BEGINNING IN JANUARY 2021, THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE CLOSEST LOCAL DEALSHIP FOR A LARGE MAJORITY OF THESE REPAIRS INCLUDING A $150 DEALERSHIP FEE JUST TO HAVE THESE CODES REVIEWED AND ADDITIONAL FEES FOR THE LABOR TO ADDRESS FOR EACH ISSUE FOR EACH REPAIR.

THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED I WAS PULLING INTO A PARKING PLACE IN A SHOPPING CENTER. AS I WAS TURNING INTO THE PARKING PLACE I VERY LIGHTLY TAPPED THE ACCELERATOR AND THE ENGINE REVED UP AND I APPLIED THE BRAKE ONLY TO HAVE THE CAR CONTINUE FORWARD AND GO UP THE CEMENT CURB. I THEN PUSHED DOWN ON THE BRAKE PEDAL AS HARD AS I COULD AND ONLY THEN DID THE CAR STOP. IF THE CEMENT BLOCK HAD NOT BEEN THERE, I WOULD HAVE HIT THE CAR PARKED DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME. THE FRONT TIRES HAD GONE ABOUT TWO FEET UP ON THE CEMENT BLOCK. THE NEXT TIME THIS HAPPENED I WAS ONCE AGAIN PARKING. THIS TIME I WAS PARKING PARALLEL TO THE CURB. I PULLED INTO AND IN FRONT OF THE SPACE I WAS GOING TO PARK IN. I PUT THE CAR IN REVERSE AND BEGAN TO BACK UP SLOWLY WITH MY FOOT OVER THE BRAKE PEDAL. SUDDENLY, THE ENGINE REVED UP AND THE CAR LURCHED BACKWARD. THIS TIME I APPLIED THE BRAKE VERY HARD AND I WAS ABLE TO STOP MY CAR BEFORE I HIT CAR IN BACK OF ME.

Summary of Complaint

ON MY 2005 HYUNDAI TUCSON GLS (94.5K MILES, SINGLE OWNER, GARAGE KEPT AND REGULARLY CAR WASHED), LOWER LEFT CONTROL ARM WAS SO RUSTED (HOLES) TO A POINT THAT IT CAN BE BENT WITH LITTLE PRESSURE WHEN PUSHED AGAINST HARDWARE SURFACE. MY YOUNG ADULT SON WAS DRIVING THE CAR AND IT STARTED PULLING TO SIDE ON LOCAL STATE HIGHWAY. VERY VERY DANGEROUS!! THANK GOD MY KIDS WERE NOT IN A MAJOR CRASH DUE TO THIS. THE LOWER RIGHT CONTROL WAS RUSTED AS WELL TO A POINT IT MAY NEED A REPLACEMENT IN NEXT YEAR OR TWO. REPLACED BOTH LOWER CONTROL ARMS AND BALL JOINTS AT MY EXPENSE AS I FIGURED HYUNDAI WILL NOT COVER THIS. THERE IS JUST SO MUCH AMOUNT OF RUST UNDER THIS CAR THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE. IN APRIL 2018, LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALER VOLUNTARILY REPLACED THE FUEL TANK BANDS (TSB#18-01-015) UNDER A RECALL #952 (NO RECALL NOTICE RECEIVED FROM HYUNDAI) WHEN I WENT FOR AN OIL CHANGE, HOWEVER THEY MADE NO MENTION ABOUT RUSTED LOWER CONTROL ARMS AND OTHER RUST. I FEEL THAT HYUNDAI AND IT'S DEALERS ARE AWARE OF SEVER RUSTING ON 2005 HYUNDAI TUCSON, BUT KEEPING THEIR CUSTOMERS IN DARK AND RISKING THEIR CUSTOMERS LIVES!! BTW, I OWN 2006 HONDA ODYSSEY EX-L WITH 130K MILES HAS SOLID CONTROL ARMS WITH MINIMAL TO NO RUST. I THINK HYUNDAI MAY HAVE USE A LOWER QUALITY AND LOW COST MATERIAL!!
