Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING IN STOP AND GO TRAFFIC TO AND FROM WORK (AM/PM) THE DBC (DOWNHILL BRAKE CONTROL) AND ESC (ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL) INDICATOR LIGHTS WILL TURN ON AND REMAIN ON UNTIL I STOP AND TURN OFF THE IGNITION. HOWEVER, WHEN I STOP, I AM UNABLE TO SHIFT THE GEAR INTO PARK. I AM FORCED TO PUT IT IN NEUTRAL TO TURN THE IGNITION OFF, WAIT A FEW MINUTES, THEN START THE CAR AND PUT IT IN PARK IN ORDER TO REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY. I MAY HAVE TO TRY THIS SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE I AM ABLE TO SHIFT INTO PARK. IT HAS HAPPENED THREE DAYS IN A ROW. THE DEALERSHIP IS UNABLE TO DUPLICATE THIS PROBLEM. THEY DID TELL ME THAT THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THE BRAKE SWITCH FOR SOME MODELS BUT MY VIN# IS NOT SHOWING A RECALL. I WILL NEED TO BRING IN THE CAR WHEN IT ACTUAL LOCKS IN GEAR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I had my car repaired due to an open recall in April. I got in my car yesterday and while driving the car shut off and there seemed to be a liquid leaking from under the car. I had the car towed to Key Hyundai of Milford where the recall work in addition to other work was done. I am really worried because I could have gotten hurt if other cars where nearby. Also the dealership is saying it may take up to 2 weeks for them to inspect my vehicle. I need suggestions as to my best course of action.

Summary of Complaint

The ABS and Master Cylinder both had a pressure leak which caused the brakes to not engage. The sensor light also never activated to indicate a problem. While driving down the road my brakes would not engage unless I began to pump them, and even then they were unpredictable. We do not currently have the old parts as it was disposed of by the mechanic we went to. The independent mechanic was able to replicate the problem when the car was at a standstill in the shop. It was not inspected by anyone but the independent mechanic. There was no warning prior to this issue occurring. It started out small and I reported it to my mechanic but they could not replicate it. However within a time frame of 3 weeks, it was very severe and deemed unsafe to drive. P

HIGHWAY, BRIDGE, FOLLOWING SIGNIFICANTLY FAR BACK. CAR STOPS AHEAD AND I BRAKE IN PLENTY OF TIME (MY SON WAS IN THE FRONT SEAT AND CAN ATTEST TO THAT). CAR BRAKES BUT VERY SLOWLY, NOT IN TIME SO WE HIT THE STATIONARY CAR AND THEN WE WERE HIT MUCH HARDER FROM BEHIND. AIRBAGS DEPLOYED. THE CAR IMMEDIATELY FILLED WITH SMOKE WHICH I ATTRIBUTED TO THE AIR BAGS BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW ANY BETTER. VERY SCARED, I SCREAMED FOR THE KIDS TO GET OUT OF THE CAR. SMOKE WAS GONE BY THE TIME POLICE ARRIVED. WE WERE OK, MY SON AND I HAD SORE RIBS AND WHILE TALKING WITH POLICE MY LEFT HAND WAS BURNING FROM SOMETHING. NOTHING WAS VISIBLE SO I SAW KNOW POINT IN TELLING ANYONE. IT LEFT A RASH AND WITHIN TIME IT PEELED AND NOW IS BACK TO NORMAL. A FEW DAYS LATER, HAD SOME HEADACHES. WENT TO THE ATHLETIC TRAINER AT OUR SCHOOL (I AM A TEACHER) AND WAS PUT ON CONCUSSION PROTOCOL. CAR WAS TOTALED. THE FRONT LOOKED LIKE AN ACCORDION AS WE WERE PUSHED SIGNIFICANTLY INTO THE VEHICLE IN FRONT BY THE CAR WHO HIT US FROM BEHIND. I WAS SO RELIEVED THAT EVERYONE WAS OK THAT I REALLY DID NOT THINK ABOUT IT UNTIL RECALL NOTICE CAME FOR THE CAR WHICH OF COURSE WAS ALREADY GONE.

MULTIPLE TIMES A WEEK I EXPERIENCE A STALL WHILE TRAVELING AT HIGH SPEEDS ON THE HIGHWAY. I TOOK MY CAR TO A LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP RECENTLY AND THEY DID NOT EVEN KNOW ABOUT THE UPCOMING RECALL. FOR MONTHS, I HAVE BEEN HAVING TO DRIVE MY CAR AND FEEL UNSAFE. I HAVE TO GO TO WORK, AND I DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER VEHICLE OPTION. I FEEL UNSAFE AND AM INCREDIBLY UPSET THAT HYUNDAI HAS NOT FOUND A RESOLUTION YET. IF THIS PROBLEM IS NOT FIXED SOON I WILL BE FORCED TO GET ANOTHER VEHICLE, REGARDLESS OF MY FINANCIAL SITUATION. MY NEXT VEHICLE WILL NOT BE A HYUNDAI, SOLELY BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF TIME THIS RECALL RESOLUTION IS TAKING.

Summary of Complaint

THERE IS A RECALL OUT ON MY VEHICLE. MANUFACTURER RECALL NUMBER 181/NHTSA RECALL NUMBER 19V063. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS NO REMEDY YET AVAILABLE FOR THIS AND THEY ISSUED THE RECALL IN FEBRUARY. I TOOK MY VEHICLE IN FOR P.M. SERVICE AT THE HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP, AND THEY TOLD ME MY VEHICLE WAS INDEED SYMPTOMATIC OF THE NATURE OF THE RECALL (LEAKING FLUID BETWEEN ENGINE BLOCK AND OIL PAN), BUT THAT HYUNDAI DID NOT YET HAVE A REMEDY. WHEN I LOOK UP THE RECALL ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE, IT SAYS,"IF THE MANUFACTURER HAS FAILED OR IS UNABLE TO REMEDY THIS SAFETY RECALL FOR YOUR VEHICLE IN A TIMELY MANNER, PLEASE CONTACT THE NHTSA..." I FEEL AS THOUGH, GIVEN THE POTENTIAL RISK (FAILURE AT HIGH SPEED/POSSIBLE ENGINE FIRE) AND TIMELINE (RECALL ISSUED IN FEBRUARY - NO REMEDY YET AVAILABLE IN MID APRIL), HYUNDAI HAS INDEED FAILED TO REMEDY THIS SAFETY RECALL IN A TIMELY MANNER. FURTHERMORE - I HAVE RECEIVED NO OFFICIAL COMMUNICATIONS FROM HYUNDAI REGARDING THIS MATTER WHICH I FIND UNPROFESSIONAL AS WELL.
