VIN: kmhtc6ad6du****

Summary of Complaint

On five separate occasions the vehicle engine has shut off completely while driving in traffic. Fortunately my wife was able to coast to the side of the road, but in all instances a serious road hazard and danger to safety for both us as well as the public was created. We are now no longer driving the vehicle out of fear of our safety. We have contacted the Hyundai dealership where all the prior 4+ years of service has been done, as well as Hyundai USA. Both have said they will not investigate. After the first two occurrences, I was told the original engine needed to be replaced due to metal shavings in the internal components. This is the exact same reason for the recent global recall, however Hyundai said our model was not covered under the warranty even though it was the same issue. We had the Hyundai Dealership replace the engine and within one month it happened again. This time they said the catalytic converter/exhaust manifold had failed again (this was the third catalytic converter). Since then, the engine has shut off two more times while driving. A local certified mechanic has inspected it and said he has seen several similar problems with other Hyundai vehicles. Hyundai USA refuses to address the issue.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING AT 65+ MPH ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY, CAR SUDDENLY LOST ALL POWER. I PULLED OVER AND ALL LIGHTS ON CLUSTER POPPED ON AT THE SAME TIME (CHECK ENGINE, LOW OIL, LOW TIRE PRESSURE, LOW BATTERY, ETC), AND THEN LIGHTS TURNED OFF. THERE WERE NO ERROR CODES WHEN READ WITH A OBD SCANNER. CAR STILL RAN, BUT WOULD NOT MOVE, ALL POWER WAS LOST. AFTER HAVING IT TOWED, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER HAD CLOGGED, AND FOR SOME REASON DID NOT THROW AN ERROR CODE. THIS HAPPENED ON A BUSY HIGHWAY WITH NO WARNING, AND COULD HAVE BEEN VERY DANGEROUS IF I HADN'T BEEN ABLE TO PULL OVER.

Summary of Complaint

HELLO, I BELIEVE THERE IS AN UNDERLYING ISSUE WITH THE VELOSTER 2013 THAT HYUNDAI HAS NOT ADDRESSED PROPERLY WITH THEIR SERVICE CAMPAIGN. I HAD RECEIVED THE SERVICE AROUND 06/01/19 (I AM NOT SURE EXACTLY WHEN) AND A YEAR LATER HAVE HAD THE SAME EXACT PROBLEMS THIS SERVICE WAS SUPPOSED TO ADDRESS. I HAVE HAD ENGINE STALLS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET NEAR USC ON A BUSY INTERSECTION AND HAD TO MOVE THE CAR BY FOOT IN FEAR OF GETTING HIT BY ANOTHER CAR. I'VE ALSO HAD ENGINE POWER ISSUES THAT SEEM TO HAVE PERSISTED. WHEN THIS HAPPENED I TOOK IT INTO A MECHANIC TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE, THEIR DIAGNOSIS WAS A BAD COIL PACK FOR WHICH THEY DID A TUNE UP (SPARK PLUGS, COIL PACKS, OIL FILTER). SHORTLY AFTER THE TUNE-UP I HAD PROBLEMS OF THE SAME MISFIRING ISSUE WHERE THERE WOULD BE NO POWER TO THE ENGINE AND A SLIGHT KNOCKING NOISE. I THEN TOOK MY CAR TO HUNDAI KEYES MISSION HILLS TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM THIS TIME AND THEY SAID THE SAME THING, BAD COIL PACK. THERE HAVE BEEN KNOWN ENGINE FAILURES DUE TO THE ECU, AND HAVE READ MANY ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE THAT THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH THE ECU. I ALSO BELIEVE THIS ISSUE HAS CAUSED MY CATALYTIC CONVERTER TO FAIL PREMATURELY AS THE MISFIRES WOULD SEND UNBURNED FUEL INTO THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER. I INITIALLY GOT IN CONTACT WITH A SERVICE MANAGER AT HYUNDAI CONSUMER AFFAIRS ON FEB 15TH AND HE HAS FINALLY CALLED ME TODAY 03/15/19 AFTER WEEKS OF TRYING TO GET UPDATES. THE SUPERVISOR HAS DEEMED THAT THIS WAS OUT OF WARRANTY AND THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR IT EVEN AFTER EXPRESSING MY CONCERNS THAT THERE MIGHT BE AN UNDERLYING ISSUE THAT HAS NOT BEEN RESOLVED BY THE SERVICE CAMPAIGN. THIS IS A DANGEROUS PROBLEM FOR OTHER VELOSTER OWNERS. AND I FEAR THAT MY ENGINE WILL FAIL IN THE FUTURE. HERE IS THE SERVICE CAMPAIGN. REPORT RECEIPT DATE: MAR 14, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN: 19V204000

I TOWED MY CAR 20 MILES TO MY LONG TIME AND TRUSTED MECHANIC. HE SAYS MY CAR HAS AN OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM. APPARENTLY THIS IS A VERY COMMON ISSUE WITH HYUNDAI VELOSTERS, AND FROM WHAT I'VE READ MOST PEOPLE DECIDE TO AVOID THE HEADACHE AND RUNAROUND THAT HYUNDAI GIVES THEM WHEN REPORTING THE ISSUE. THEY INSTEAD OPT TO TRADE THEIR VEHICLES IN. WOULD THIS ISSUE WARRANT A RECALL? GIVEN THE FACT THAT HYUNDAI KNOWS THIS IS A RECURRING PROBLEM IN THIS VEHICLE?

Summary of Complaint

MY 2013 HYUNDAI VELOSTER WAS UNDER A RECALL IN JUNE LAST YEAR FOR AN ENGINE PROBLEM THAT COULD RESULT, IF NOT FIXED, IN SERIOUS ENGINE FAILURE AND DAMAGE WHILE OPERATING. I TOOK THE CAR TO MY LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP TO FIX THE PROBLEM, BUT ON 9/10/20 WHILE DRIVING ON INTERSTATE 26 NEAR COLUMBIA, SC, THE CAR'S SPEED SUDDENLY DROPPED TO NO MORE THAN ABOUT 40 MPH AND WOULDN'T GO ANY FASTER. THAT PUT ME IN EXTREME DANGER OF GETTING STRUCK FROM THE REAR BY OTHER FASTER-MOVING VEHICLES, SO I RODE THE NEXT APPROXIMATELY 5 MILES ON INTERSTATE SHOULDERS TO AVOID DANGER. I WAS EVENTUALLY ABLE TO DRIVE THE CAR THAT DAY TO A REPAIR SHOP IN COLUMBIA, WHICH DETERMINED THAT MY CAR SUSTAINED SERIOUS ENGINE FAILURE AND DAMAGE, AND BELIEVED IT WAS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE 2019 RECALL, ATTACHING A RECALL NOTICE TO THE REPAIR INVOICE. I CALLED MY LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP BUT WAS INFORMED MY CAR WAS NOT PRESENTLY UNDER RECALL. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE DEALERSHIP EITHER DIDN'T DO THE 2019 REPAIR AT ALL OR IMPROPERLY DID IT, OR MORE SERIOUSLY FOR THE THOUSANDS OF OTHER DRIVERS NATIONWIDE OF SIMILAR HYUNDAI VELOSTERS, THE SOFTWARE FIX OFFERED BY HYUNDAI WAS NOT ADEQUATE, PUTTING THEIR LIVES IN DANGER IF THEIR ENGINES SUFFER SERIOUS ENGINE FAILURE AND DAMAGE WHILE TRAVELING AT HIGH SPEEDS. IN MY CASE, BECAUSE THE ENGINE WAS RUINED, I SOLD THE CAR TO A LOCAL JUNKYARD. I'VE ATTACHED DOCUMENTATION VERIFYING EVERYTHING I'VE WRITTEN.
