Summary of Complaint

THE RUBBER STEERING COUPLER THAT CONNECTS THE ELECTRIC STEERING MOTOR TO THE STEERING COLUMN HAS FAILED. WHEN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL THE FRONT TIRES DO NOT INITIALLY START TO TURN UNTIL YOU HEAR A METALLIC CLUCK AND THEN THE TIRES START TO TURN. THIS OCCURS WHETHER THE CAR IS STOPPED OR MOVING. ALSO, BUMPY ROADS CAUSES ERRATIC SHAKING OF THE STEERING WHEEL. THAT DID NOT START TO OCCUR UNTIL THE RUBBER STEERING COUPLER FAILED. THIS PART FAILED WHEN THE CAR HAD ONLY 55,000 MILES ON IT. THE COST TO REPAIR IT WAS AROUND $250. *TR

Summary of Complaint

DURING A NORMAL DRIVE FROM WORK, THE CAR HESITATED TO ACCELERATE FROM SITTING AT THE RED STREET LIGHT AND WHITE SMOKE BEGAN TO COME OUT OF THE EXHAUST PIPE. THERE WAS NO SIGN OF CAR TROUBLE,NO ENGINE LIGHT INDICATOR NOR ANY KIND OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE CAR. I IMMEDIATELY COAST TO THE NEAREST PARKING LOT WHICH WAS A HOLIDAY EXPRESS HOTEL. I THEN CALLED USAA AND REQUESTED TOW SERVICE TO HAVE TOWED TO SOUTH TOWNE HYUNDAI OF RIVERDALE, GA. ON MONDAY AUGUST 12, 2019. I EXPLAINED TO THE SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE OF MY ISSUE. HE CALLED TUESDAY MORNING AND ASKED AGAIN WHAT EXACTLY WAS THE ISSUE IN WHICH I EXPLAINED AGAIN. HE NEVER HEARD FROM THE SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE AGAIN. I CALLED TUESDAY LATER THAT EVENING, LEFT A MESSAGE AND NO CALL BACK. ON WEDNESDAY, I CALLED LEFT A MESSAGE WITH THE SERVICE MANAGER TO GIVE ME A CALL AND NO ONE CALLED. I WENT UP TO SOUTH TOWNE DEALERSHIP IN WHICH I WAITED AND UNTIL I ASKED A LADY WHO SAT IN AN OFFICE NEXT TO THE PARTS DEPARTMENT FOR HELP. SHE WENT TO THE AUTOMOTIVE GARAGE CAME BACK AND SAID THEY TOOK THE OIL PAN OFF SAW SHAVINGS AND NOTED IT WAS A BAD ENGINE AND THE COST WAS $2500.00 FOR THE ENGINE PLUS LABOR WHICH WOULD BE AROUND $5000 TO $6000 DOLLARS. I WAS SHOCKED BECAUSE I JUST PURCHASED THE VEHICLE LESS THAN A MONTH AGO AND HAD NOT DRIVING THE CAR 1000 MILES. I ASK IF ADDITIONAL TEST WERE PERFORMED SHE SAID NO BECAUSE THE TOOK THE OIL PAN OFF FIRST. THERE WERE NO DIAGNOSTIC READING, NO OIL CHECK, NO THROTTLE CABLE CHECK PERFORMED. I AM LOST BECAUSE NUMEROUS CARS ARE HAVING THE SAME ENGINE ISSUE AND THERE WAS A RECALL FOR 2013 HYUNDAI VELOSTER TURBO ENGINE EARLY THIS YEAR HOWEVER NOT FOR THE NON-TURBO WHICH IS EXTREMELY UNFAIR BECAUSE OF THE SHAVINGS FROM THE PISTONS WHICH IS NOT AN OIL CHANGE ISSUE NOR IS IT AN OWNER MAINTENANCE ISSUE AND THERE WERE NO WARNINGS OR SIGN OF TROUBLE.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING, DOING APPROX 50 MILES PER HOUR WHEN I HEARD A POP AND THEN IT STARTED TO RAIN GLASS FROM MY PANORAMIC SUNROOF THAT WAS SHATTERING ALL OVER ME. I HAD GLASS IN MY HAIR, CUTS ON MY FOREHEAD AND I HAVE A HUGE LUMP ON THE TOP OF MY HEAD FROM WHERE I WAS HIT IN THE HEAD WITH A BIGGER PIECE OF GLASS. WENT TO THE HOSPITAL TO MAKE SURE I DIDN'T HAVE A CONCUSSION, WHICH I DO NOT, HOWEVER, I AM VERY SORE FROM MY NECK UP TO THE TOP OF MY HEAD. BROUGHT THE CAR TO THE HYUNDAI DEALER AND THE SERVICE ADVISER ACTED SURPRISED THAT THIS HAD HAPPENED AND SAID TO CONTACT MY INSURANCE COMPANY TO FILE A COMPLAINT SINCE HE STATED IT COULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED ON ITS OWN, THAT SOMETHING HAD TO HAVE HIT IT. HOW SAD IT IS TO COME HOME TO SEE THAT THE 2012 MODEL OF MY CAR EXPERIENCED THE SAME CHALLENGE AND WAS UNDER RECALL AND NOW I AM SEEING THAT SEVERAL OTHER 2013 OWNERS ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME ISSUE WITH THEIR SUNROOF AS I AM. *JS

Summary of Complaint

THE FIRST INCIDENT HAPPENED AS I WAS DRIVING TO MICHIGAN FROM INDIANA, ON A COLD BUT CLEAR DAY. HALF WAY INTO MICHIGAN I RAN INTO A LIGHT DUSTING OF SNOW, AND BEFORE I KNEW IT MY REAR END STARTED SLIDING TO THE RIGHT. AT FIRST I THOUGHT I HIT A PATCH OF ICE, BUT I SOON REALIZED I'M THE ONLY ONE SLIDING ALL OVER THE ROAD. MY TOP SPEED 40 TO 45 MPH. EVERYONE WAS PASSING ME WITH NO PROBLEMS. WHEN I GOT TO MY PARENTS HOUSE, I WENT TO DISCOUNT TIRE AND BOUGHT NEW RIMS AND SNOW TIRES. THE RESULT NO DIFFERENT. LAST WEEK I WAS HEADING TO CHICAGO, AND RAN INTO RAIN AT 70 MPH. SAME SITUATION AS BEFORE. THE REAR STEPPED OUT AND I ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT. I'M TERRIFIED DRIVING THIS CAR. *TR
