Summary of Complaint

The contact owns a 2016 Hyundai Veloster. The contact stated while driving at 40 mph, the oil pressure warning light illuminated. The contact pulled the vehicle over to the side of the road and check the oil and noticed the oil was low. The driver placed oil in the vehicle to continue to drive to their residence. After few days the contact took the vehicle to an independent mechanic to have an oil change done on the vehicle but the failure persisted several times. The contact then received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign number: 20V746000 (Engine) which took their vehicle to a local dealer to have the vehicle inspected due to the contact concerns that the failure on the vehicle was related to the recall. The dealer inspected the vehicle and stated the vehicle was fine but they did not place the Knock sensor detection system software on the vehicle as part of the recall repair remedy. After a few weeks, the contact was driving back to the residence when they heard a knocking noise coming from their vehicle, the vehicle lost motive power, and stalled in front of their residence. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 83,000.

WHILE DRIVING 60 MILES AN HOUR ON THE INTERSTATE HEADING TO WORK I BEGIN TO HEAR A KNOCKING FROM MY ENGINE. I PUT MY FLASHERS ON AND BEGIN TO SLOW DOWN BECAUSE I BEGIN TO SMELL SMOKE. I WAS ABLE TO NAVIGATE INTO THE NEAREST GAS STATION AND TURN THE CAR OFF. WHEN I TRIED TO RESTART THE CAR IT WOULD NOT TURN OVER. I CHECKED THE OIL JUST TO MAKE SURE BECAUSE OF THE SMELL AND THE OIL WAS DEPLETED. I PUT THREE LAYERS OF OIL INTO MY CAR SO I COULD GET IT STARTED ENOUGH TO GET IT TO THE EXPRESS OIL CHANGE NEARBY. I DROPPED MY CAR OFF THERE AND THEY PERFORMED A DIAGNOSTIC TEST WHERE THEY INFORMED ME THAT THE ENGINE HAD FAILED. I MADE A SERVICE APPOINTMENT WITH MY DEALER WHO FINALLY CONTACTED ME BACK TODAY SAYING THEY WOULD TAKE A LOOK AT THE CAR AND LET ME KNOW IF IT WAS PART OF THE RECALL.

THE PLUG BEHIND THE AC CONTROL PANEL (THE BLOWER MOTOR SWITCH) HAS MELTED BECAUSE THE CURRENT ISN'T BEING CONDUCTED PROPERLY. THIS ISSUE STARTED MONTHS AGO WHEN I NOTICED THE AC CONTROL KNOB WAS GETTING STUCK & STOPPED WORKING ON THE NUMBERS. THIS LAST WEEK I SMELT SMOKE COMING FROM THE AC CONTROL PANEL, WHICH IS WHAT LED ME TO REMOVE THE CONSOLE TO SEE BEHIND. APPARENTLY, THIS IIS A VERY COMMON COMPLAINT OF THE 2012-2016 VELOSTERS & SOME PEOPLE HAVE HAD THEIR DASH SET ON FIRE BEFORE. I FEAR FOR MY SAFETY IF THE CAR WERE EVER TO SET FIRE BECAUSE OF THIS DESIGN FLAW & I WERE DRIVING. I, & OTHER PEOPLE, COULD DIE FROM THIS. HYUNDAI HAS NEVER ISSUED A RECALL OR ADDRESSED THIS ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING THE CAR WHEN IT STARTED SMOKING AND THEN SHUT OFF WHILE I WAS DRIVING STRAIGHT DOWN HIGHWAY 195 IN TEXAS. THE CAR WAS TOWED TO EUROPE SERVICES IN KILLEEN, TX AND WE WERE TOLD THAT THE ENGINE IS BLOWN OUT. WE ARE UNABLE TO FIND A NEW ENGINE ANYWHERE. I LOOKED ONLINE AND SAW THAT THE YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL OF MY CAR HAD A RECALL WITH PREMATURE ENGINE ISSUES.
