Summary of Complaint

ON FRIDAY, 1/31/19, MY SON AS DRIVING HOME FROM WORK AND HIS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND OIL INDICATOR LIGHT WENT ON. HE TOOK THE CAR (MY12 HYUNDAI VELOSTER) TO PEP BOYS FOR SERVICE THE FOLLOWING MORNING, SAT. 2/1/20, AND DESCRIBED WHAT HAPPENED. THEY INSPECTED THE CAR AND ADVISED THE OIL SEEMED TO BE BURNING FASTER THAN NORMAL, BUT DID AN OIL CHANGE. THEY ADVISED IF THE WARNING LIGHTS CAME ON AGAIN, TO TAKE IT TO HYUNDAI. THEY ALSO ADVISED WE WOULD NEED TO BRING THE CAR IN FOR OIL CHANGES APPROX. EVERY 3K MILES, RATHER THAN 5-7K MILES. NO CONCERN WAS COMMUNICATED TO KEEP DRIVING THE CAR. THE NEXT DAY, SUNDAY, 2/2/20, HE WAS ENTERING THE 605 FWY (SOUTH) AT FIRESTONE BLVD IN NORWALK, CA AND HE HEARD A RATTLING IN THE ENGINE, THEN SAW BLACK SMOKE COMING FROM THE ENGINE. HE PULLED THE CAR OVER ON THE SHOULDER, THEN SAW FLAMES COMING FROM THE ENGINE. HE EXITED THE VEHICLE SAFELY AND CALLED 911. THE CAR BECAME ENGULFED IN BLAMES AND WAS TOTALED. THE FIRE DEPT PUT OUT THE FIRE. THE CHP OFFICER POINTED OUT THE TRAIL OF OIL ON THE SHOULDER WHERE MY SON HAD DRIVEN AND PULLED OVER. UPON DOING SOME INTERNET RESEARCH AFTER THE FIRE, WE SAW THAT MY13 HYUNDAI VELOSTERS HAD A RECALL FOR AN ISSUE THAT COULD LEAD TO ENGINE FIRES. WE HAVE HAD ALL REGULAR SERVICE DONE ON THE CAR AT PEP BOYS AND HAD NOT HAD ANY PRIOR ENGINE ISSUES.

Summary of Complaint

THE VELOSTER IS A 2012 WITH ONLY 19K MILES. RECENTLY IT HAS STARTED MAKING A CLUNKING NOISE WHEN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL LEFT OR RIGHT AND THERE IS EXCESSIVE VIBRATION WHEN DRIVING IN A STRAIGHT LINE. HYUNDAI STATES THAT THIS IS NOT A SAFETY ISSUE, HOWEVER, THE MAJORITY OF SOURCES ONLINE SAY THAT THIS IS CAUSED BY A FAILED STEERING COUPLER (A K A.STEERING DAMPENER) AND THIS CAN CAUSE THE WHEEL TO LOCK UP WHILE DRIVING. HYUNDAI HAS RECALLED THIS ISSUE ON THE SONATA AND THE ELANTRA BUT REFUSES TO DO ANYTHING FOR VELOSTER OWNERS. THE PART CAN BE PURCHASED ONLINE FROM THE OEM FOR ROUGHLY $6 BUT THE DEALER FROM WHICH I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE IS ASKING $400 TO FIX THIS ISSUE. FORUMS ON LINE WILL SHOW A GREAT NUMBER OF VELOSTER OWNERS DEALING WITH THIS SAME ISSUE AND COST TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. I TRULY FEEL AS THOUGH HYUNDAI HAS ADMITTED FAULT AND A SAFETY CONCERN BY RECALLING OTHER VEHICLES FOR THE EXACT ISSUE BUT THEY STILL REFUSE TO FIX THE VELOSTER. I CALLED AND SPOKE WITH A HYUNDAI USA REPRESENTATIVE THIS AFTERNOON WHO SAYS THAT IT'S UP TO THE DEALER TO DECIDE IF IT'S COVERED UNDER THEIR STANDARD WARRANTY OR NOT AND THAT I SHOULD HAVE PURCHASED THE EXTENDED WARRANTY IF I WANTED THIS FIXED. AS HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT IT GOES TO SHOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY VELOSTER OWNER DEALING WITH THIS PROBLEM. THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED AT THE EXPENSE OF HYUNDAI.

NOTHING SEEN BY ME EITHER. JUST A RANDOM EXPLOSION OF GLASS. NO EXTREME TEMPS EITHER.

UNDER NORMAL DRIVING CONDITIONS, AS I WAS SHIFTING INTO SECOND GEAR, THE SEATBELT MOUNTING ASSEMBLY DISLODGED FROM THE WALL OF THE VEHICLE. ONCE DISLOGED, THE WEIGHT OF THE FALLING ASSEMBLY CAUSED THE BELT TO TWIST AND BECOME STUCK IN THE SLOT WHERE THE BELT RETRACTS INTO THE WALL OF THE CAR, LEAVING THE BELT SOMEWHAT LOOSE AND NON FUNCTIONAL. THIS IS NOW THE SECOND SAFETY COMPLAINT I HAVE FILED ON THE SAME CAR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

AFTER HAVING THE VEHICLE RECALLED, INSPECTED, AND REPAIRED FOR A KNOWN SUNROOF ISSUE, MY HYUNDAI VELOSTER HAD NO WINDOW ISSUES FOR APPROXIMATELY 1 YEAR. WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY ON APRIL 26TH, MY SUNROOF SPONTANEOUSLY EXPLODED TO PIECES WITHOUT CAUSE OR IMPACT. THE RECALL FOR THE CAR WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE FIXED THIS POTENTIAL ISSUE. OBVIOUSLY, IN MY CASE, THE RECALL DID NOT WORK. THE SUNROOF SHATTERING WAS EXTREMELY LOUD AND STARTLING, NEARLY CAUSING ME TO CRASH MY VEHICLE. *TR
