Summary of Complaint

THE MDPS (MOTOR DRIVEN POWER STEERING) ASSEMBLY CONTAINS A FLEXIBLE RUBBER COUPLING WHICH MAY WEAR OVER TIME RESULTING IN A SLIGHT 'CLICKING' OR 'THUD' TYPE NOISE WHEN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL. THIS TOGETHER WITH THE HUGE AMOUNT OF DEAD PLAY MAKES THE VEHICLE UNSAFE. THERE'S A RECALL/EXTENDED WARRANTY FROM HYUNDAI USA FOR THIS SAME EXACT ISSUE FOR OTHER MODELS WITH THE EXACT SAME ISSUE, BUT NOT FOR THIS ONE.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A HYUNDAI VELOSTER 2013. ON THE HWY HOME FROM WORK MY CAR SUDDENLY LOST POWER, I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHERE IT COMPLETELY DIED. UPON INITIAL INSPECTION IT SEEMED TO BE IN PART DUE TO THE BATTERY. WE REPLACED THE BATTERY AND . SWITCHED OUT THE ALTERNATOR TO TEST IT AND TOOK IT IN TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE THEY CHARGED US 150 TO SUGGEST FACTORY PARTS IN ORDER TO DIAGNOSE IT. I REFUSED AND PUT THE OLD ALTERNATOR BACK ON AFTER IT TESTED CLEAR AND HECKED THE FUSES. THE MULTI FUSE FOR THE ALTERNATOR HAD BLOWN SO WE REPLACED THAT (MAKING IT DRIVEABLE) AND BROUGHT IT IN TO A DIFFERENT HYUNDAI SERVICE DEPT. THEY DIDNT CHARGE ME TO TELL ME THAT IT HAD BLOWN A ROD AND I NEEDED A NEW ENGINE. HYUNDAI IS REFUSING TO DO ANYTHING HOWEVER DID CALL THE SEXIST JERKS FROM THE ORIGINALLY HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP AND USED THAT INTERACTON AS BASIS TO SAY MY CAR IS FINE...

Summary of Complaint

MY SON'S 2013 HYUNDAI VELOSTER'S SUNROOF EXPLODED VIOLENTLY WHILE PARKED IN OUR HOUSE DRIVE WAY. THE INSURANCE COMPANY WAS CONTACTED, BUT BECAUSE OF OUR INSURANCE DEDUCTIBLE THE EXPENSE WILL NOT BE COVERED BY THEM. THE CAR WAS TAKEN TO THE HYUNDAI DEALER AND THEY WOULD NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DAMAGE, DESPITE THEY HAD DONE SOME RECALLS ON THIS ISSUE, BUT WERE NEVER NOTIFY OF THIS RECALL OR OF THE POSSIBILITIES THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN.. I FIND IT UNFAIR THAT WE HAVE TO PAY FOR A DAMAGE THAT HAS TO DO WITH MANUFACTURING OF SUCH SUNROOFS BY HYUNDAI. IT IS CLEAR TO US NOW THAT THIS IS A VERY TERRIBLE ,DANGEROUS AND COMMON ISSUE WITH THIS TYPE OF VEHICLES SUNROOFS BECAUSE OF ITS SIZE. I AM FILLING THIS COMPLAIN BECAUSE I WANT TO KNOW WHAT MEASURES HAS THE GOVERNMENT TAKEN TO MAKE SURE THAT THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY, IN OUR CASE THE HYUNDAI , IS MANUFACTURING SAFE CARS. FROM MY READING RELATED TO THIS ISSUE I AM NOW AWARE THAT THE AUTO INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT SAFETY REGULATORS ARE WELL AWARE OF THE PRESENT SAFETY HAZARDS, THAT CAN VERY WELL END UP BEEN DEADLY. PLEASE ADVISE ME ON HOW I CAN APPROACH THIS ISSUE WITH HYUNDAI. TO CLARIFY THE VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS APPROXIMATELY 70%, WE DO LIVE IN SOUTH, FLORIDA AND THE TEMPERATURES CAN GO VERY HIGH, SO I AM VERY AFRAID THAT THIS CAN HAPPEN AGAIN AND I DO FEAR FOR MY SON'S SAFETY. AS OF NOW WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY $720.00 FOR THIS REPAIR THAT WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

WHILE DRIVING ON HIGHWAY 83 IN PHARR, TX, I HEARD A LOUD EXPLOSION SUDDENLY AND WIND HOWLING; I IMMEDIATELY SET MY HAZARDS TO ALERT THE VEHICLES NEAR ME AS I THOUGHT I WAS IN A WRECK. I LOOKED UP TO DISCOVER THAT MY PANORAMIC SUNROOF HAD EXPLODED AND SHARDS OF GLASS WERE FLYING BOTH BEHIND MY VEHICLE AND INSIDE MY VEHICLE. I ENDED UP WITH MINOR CUTS AND SCRAPES AS A RESULT. I CALLED HYUNDAI, BUT THEY STATED THAT THIS VEHICLE WAS NOT LIKELY PART OF AN EARLIER RECALL IN 2013 FOR SHATTERING PANORAMIC SUNROOFS. FOR THE EXTENT OF DAMAGE DONE, THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY I COULDN'T HAVE HEARD A ROCK OF THAT SIZE HIT MY VEHICLE DIRECTLY ON MY SUNROOF STRONG ENOUGH TO SMASH THROUGH THE LAYERS OF MY SUNROOF AND POP THE FRAME OUT OF PLACE. LUCKILY, THIS DIDN'T RESULT IN A COLLISION, BUT THIS RECALL NEEDS A SECOND LOOK AT EXPANSION- WHAT HAPPENED IS UNACCEPTABLE. THE DEALERSHIP IS IN PROCESS OF REPLACING THE SUNROOF BUT I'M CONCERNED THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM IS BEING MISSED. *TR

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.

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
