After driving for an hour or so the car will shut off in the middle of a trip. No warning, just a quick engine shut off on the highway, which forces me to shift the car into neutral to crank it back up. The vehicle is in motion when this occurs, and it's a severe safety problem.

My 2014 hyundai is a great car, except lately, i've experienced an issue that apparently is all too common with hyundai's. The gas gauge is not functioning and i was told that to repair is about 800 - 1000 to repair. I'm a college student and work part time this repair is too expensive, this is a part that should never go bad and always be under warranty, it speaks to the quality of the parts of this vehicle. At this time i've been stuck a few times without gas, when i put in the gas every 2 days i have to put more in to make sure i don't get stranded again. Saving for this part has been hard for us to do. Please consider this being a repair that should be taken care of by the manufacturer. It is dangerous.

My 2014 hyundia elantra sport 2.0l engine threw a rod with only 101300 miles. The car had a lot of value because it was running great and was in better than good condition until now. To replace the engine was going to cost between $8k to $10k. Reading on the internet hyundia 2.0l engines are experiencing a lot of engine failures like this. The mechanic shop where i took it called two hyundi-kia dealership to see if my elantra engine was under hyundia recall, both said it wasn't. Now i am forced to look for a new car and figure out how to recoup some loss from my eltantra. In the future i will never consider another hyundia-kia car because of engine issues.

Component Service brakes | vehicle speed control
I was driving my 2014 hyundai elantra (that i had only had for 3 months, had 1,500 miles on the car) home from the airport, had my cruise control set on 55 for the previous 30 minutes, and i noticed the car in front of me was braking. Naturally, i pressed the brake as well to slow down, but the brakes did not work. The brake pedal was hard as rock and would not press in at all and therefore i could not slow down and cruise control did not disengage. I kept trying to press the brake as hard as i could, but the brake pedal was hard and would not work and cruise control kept accelerating. I pressed the cancel cruise control button on my steering wheel, but that did not disengage either. Just has i was shifting my car to neutral, my car rear-ended the lexus in front of me. After my car struck the lexus (my foot still on the brake pedal), i felt the brake finally press in and i was able to slow down and pull off the side of the road. The brake malfunction is still under investigation, but upon my own investigation, i found a recall of hyundai elantra year models 2007-2011 for this very issue that caused my car accident. *tr

Component Structure | tires:temporary/emergency spare tire
Hyundai vehicles do not come with a spare tire. Instead you get an air compressor and fix a flat. This is a safety concern as tire damage that can not be sealed with fix a flat leaves the driver stranded, unable to put on a spare tire and go. This presents a safety hazard as it leaves drivers stranded on the road. This should not be allowed. *tr

Component Engine | fuel system, gasoline | vehicle speed control
I was on a highway driving the vehicle (a 2014 hyundai elantra) at highway speed when it inexplicably "stalled" for lack of a better term. I quickly lost speed and could not accelerate despite the fact that i was pressing the gas pedal all the way to the floor at one point. The vehicle simply did not respond. There was plenty of gas in the vehicle, so i had not run out of gas. The vehicle appeared to have shut off in the middle of operation. This resulted in a major accident on a highway where i, along with the other occupants within the vehicle, sustained significant injuries. Notably, no airbags deployed--even though the vehicle was struck several times from different angles and sustained heavy damage, including being crushed in from the rear. *tr

Component Seats
The headrests push my head forward into an uncomfortable & unnatural position. i am a 5'4" smaller framed driver. when seated, my head is pushed so far forward that my line of sight is the steering wheel and dash, not the road. This makes me have to continually lift my eyes from their natural position to view the road. when trying to turn my head to see while driving, the natural turning motion of my neck is hindered with limited range of movement and awkward unnatural movement angle causing slower head rotation. the angle that my head is forced into interferes with comfortable natural breathing. i don't know about the safety of these headrests for short drivers in the event of an accident, but these aspects of newer styled headrests distract & interfere with my safe driving. the best way to avoid an accident in the first place is to be able to drive without interference & distraction. during & after my driving trip: my eyes were tired from being forced to look upward constantly to see the road, instead of being positioned in a natural forward view. my neck was tired from being forced downward, having limited range of motion and from the extra friction & effort when subconsciously attempting to put my head into a natural head position, but being hindered by the seat when i had to check for other vehicles at intersections, during lane changes and simply trying to look forward naturally. i was distracted by my discomfort in breathing for my entire trip by the strain/pressure in my neck/throat area that interfered with my breathing. i was distracted by my glasses sliding & interfering with my view because of the downward positioning of my head. *tr

Component Engine | service brakes | vehicle speed control
I has recently traded in my 2012 hyundai elantra for a 2014 hyundai elantra. The 2014 had started doing what the 2012 did occasionally, accelerate when i released my foot from the gas to switch to the brake to begin slowing down for a light. After i've applied the brake and i'm coasting before i need to apply it again, the car will accelerate. I used to think it was my imagination, then i read others confirming it does happen. Lately i've also had an issue with the car accelerating when i do touch the gas, the engine revs up and bolts forward like i floored it, but i only lightly touched the gas. I'll be bringing it to the dealer soon for these issues. *tr

Component Electronic stability control | steering | suspension
On 5/30/14 i purchased a 2013 hyundai elantra close out with 54 miles on it. At 4300 miles i lost all control of the steering and the car went across 3 lanes of interstate 3 times before i regained control of the car. I returned the car to the dealer and had to "trade it in" to get a different car. I left the dealer with a 2014 elantra limited on 7/21/14 having to pay them an $4500 extra. The 2014 felt better on the road now at 1300 miles i start felling the same fish tailing feel when the car is going interstate speed 70mph. As i write this the car now has 1944 miles and the condition is getting worse. I drive the same interstate everyday and the road conditions have not changed. I no longer can drive this car interstate speed, i now have to drive it at no more than 55mph. The 2013 did this fish tail or wander also, and just before it went out of control it did it sharply for no reason. Now i have concern this will happen with this car also as the symptoms that are starting are the same. I called hyundai customer care and filed a complaint, they said they would do what needed to be done to fix this issue. The wobble and unstable feel driving this car, is a very on edge unpleasant ride as one does not know if it will lose control. I do not know if it is the steering or the stability control or even the suspension that is the issue. You can't feel the wobble in the steering wheel, you feel it though out the car. I have now had two elantra's driven them a combined mileage of 7000 miles in 8 weeks and both have the same issue. Something is very wrong with the control of these cars and there needs to be a recall, i can't be that unlucky to get the only two cars out there with the same issue. *tr

While driving at highway speeds, the rear of the 2014 elantra consistently sways and at times causes vehicle to actually drift into other lanes which is a huge safety issue to me and my family, my fiancee is actually fearful of driving this car as i am. We have had the car back at dealer and have been told it's the way the car is made. I actually spoke on phone with hyundai motors eastern seaboard district manager [xxx] ( his phone number is [xxx] )and claims he has never heard of the swaying issue. I feel i am loosing control of car and possibly going to have accident, seems like manufacturer won't do anything until someone is killed because they refuse to accept responsibility and issue a recall. For the money i paid for this car i feel i got ripped off. Hyundai needs to be sued in court. If anyone is interested in getting a class action lawsuit going please contact me, my email is [xxx] we have rights, let's band together and force hyundai to fix problem before someone we love gets killed by hyundai's refusal to fix this extreme safety issue. If enough of us stand together we can win, hyundai doesn't care about our safety or the safety of our loved ones riding in these cars. So email me and let's get this lawsuit started before someone gets hurt or killed, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

Hyundai elantra 2014 : radio comes on by itself (many instances); ports for use of electronics intermittently work (off and on); car will not start unless i keep on braking and turning the wheel (4-5 times); car started but was unable to put in gear -- locked in park. I shut the car off and made sure the wheel locked and restarted and it worked (1). I've had it in for service with these complaints about 4 times and they started to charge me for checking the vehicle out. They never seem to find out anything wrong. Nothing has been replaced.

This has happened about 4 times, but yesterday was the latest. While driving on the turnpike at 75 mph, the traction light came on (which is for the esc) and the car immediately de-accelerated to about 35 mph. I had no control over the car could not accelerate or brake. The car made a grinding noise and sounded like it had a flat tire - it was hard to maintain control of the car. It finally returned to normal. I took the car in to the dealership today and they checked the computer system and the sensors on the engine, transmission and traction control and found nothing wrong either by computer error codes or by visually inspecting the parts or sensors. So, i have no recourse other than calling hyundai and getting a case set up so that it can be documented. *tr

Component Seat belts
Both front seatbelts are difficult to latch and determine if they are secure. Several times, the drivers seatbelt has failed to be secured properly (come unlatched while the vehicle is in motion) due to short length of stationary portion of seatbelt. The stationary portion is too short, and located in a "hole" between the drivers hip and console. The manufacturer was contacted and they determined that the system was operating "as designed" and told me there was nothing they could do. I advised them that they designed the system that was malfunctioning, and they were failing to "own their problem". Hyundai has refused (in writing) to remedy this safety defect. I encounter no problems with other hyundai vehicles which i have operated extensively. *js

Purchased vehicle may 2013. Noticed it pulled to the right severely. Dealership could not duplicate. Took shop foreman for a ride on 3 lane 65 mph highway. Taking a left curve i let go of the steering wheel. Car pulled to right and crossed two lanes. They decided to attempt to repair. All i remember is rotation of tires and i was told they could never be rotated again. Car is easier to drive but not completely repaired. Tired of messing with it. I hate this car and do not like driving it. There is a steering and suspension problem. I also have excessive wear on my tires, they have 18,000 miles on them and will need to be replaced soon. *tr

While driving at speeds up to 55-70 mph, i noticed when i go over potholes the entire backend fish tails. I took it to the dealer i purchased the vehicle from, they could not replicate. This happens every time i hit a pothole, uneven train tracks or uneven road conditions.took it to another mechanic who couldn't either. Now i'm at another hyundai dealership who also cannot replicate. I've noticed a lot of people complaining about this and now it's winter. Lots of roads are horrible in illinois and i'm afraid if i hit a pothole while there is snow on the ground that my car will spin out of control and crash. I agree with another complainant that it will take a death before hyundai does anything. I saw on car complaints that hyundai is aware since the 2013 model yet has done nothing. I feel bad for giving the dealership a bad review but someone needs to notice. I do not feel safe and i went back to hyundai because i had such great luck with my 2003 elantra, also brand new. I can't say the same about my 2014 elantra, they look nicer but not sure about the quality under the body. Also noticed that the tires spin on the slightest bit of wet condition, looked that up and the hankook optimos have been given horrible reviews. Might want to rethink the model and tire used, i've owned a no-name brand tire and didn't have that issue. They may not last long but at least i felt safe. *tr

Component Steering | suspension
On the elantra gt, there is notable problem with the rear suspension system. When holding the vehicle in a turn to go around a curve, such as a highway ramp, the vehicle's rear end will hop if it hits a bump in the road. I imagine this happens when going straight as well, but is not as noticeable. When going around a curve, the back and will fishtail slightly causing the vehicle to become unstable in its path. On dry road, this doesn't usually present a problem as traction is restored quickly. However, on a wet or slick road the situation could prove to be more dangerous. Luckily, that scenario has not happened to me. Yet. There are various complaints about this issue across the internet for all models of the current generation elantra (coupe, sedan and hatchback). Some people report that changing the rear shocks with better aftermarket ones seems to solve the problem. This needs to be addressed by hyundai. *tr

While driving cruising at 45mph all of a sudden the vehicle felt like it went into neutral and the rpms went up to 4000 when left of the gas and gave it gas shifted back into gear. Also when you go up a hill and get to cruising speed the vehicle hangs in low gear and high rpms when let off it will up shift this is an intermittent problem. Took it to dealer 3 times on the 3rd time they kept it overnight and the mechanic finally felt it and agreed it "hangs in gear" he said "does not kick down smoothly and seems like the tcm is confused and takes awhile to decide what gear to go into". He also say " it seems worse in active eco mode and when he shifts it manually it seems fine". There has been a significant reduction in gas mileage. *js

I went into my car, which is parked in the garage, and turned the key. The car didn't turn over or make any type of sound indicating the car was starting. I did have radio and lights. I called a friend to ask if it could be the battery, my car is just 10 months old and only has about 5,000 miles on it, by the time i finished the call i tried to start the car again and it turned over. This happened again the following wed. I took the car to the dealer and the "tested everything" and came to the conclusion that it was battery related. That because of the extreme cold and not using the car very much it was causing this to happen. But if it is the battery, why would the car start up a minute or two after it did not? I have never felt safe driving this car and now this problem is only making it worse. *tr

We purchased a new 2104 elantra in september 2013. Two weeks later the car when started makes a loud noise and last for about an hour of driving it. It has happened every day since even after going to the shop. A couple months ago while driving in a slow school zone the car stalled while driving. Had to put car in park and restart. Taken to the dealership 3 times to express concerns. Told nothing wrong. On 2/25/15 the car was being driven again slowly and stalled while driving, again had to put in park to restart the car. The first noise is now louder, the car is again at the dealership today 2/26/15. This car is a major accident waiting to happen.

Component Air bags | vehicle speed control
I am the owner of a 2014 white hyundai elantra, at present the odometer is reading 6,800 miles. On tuesday, december 9th, at approximately 5:25 p.m. While driving my 2014 hyundai elantra at a slow speed (approximately 10-15 mph) in a shopping center parking lot located at 10100 w. Sample road, florida, i experienced a sudden and unexpected acceleration, which caused a severe crash involving two other vehicles. My vehicle suddenly accelerated which thereby caused me to lose control of the vehicle and collide with two parked cars (an suv and a sedan. Even after colliding with the suv i still was unable the stop the vehicle which was traveling at such a high rate of speed that i collided with a second vehicle. It was only when i put the car into the park position did the vehicle come to a stop. At no time did the cars airbags deploy. i am beyond distressed about this accident. I am a safe driver and have never experienced an accident such as this before. Aside from my physical and emotional injuries, my sister suffered several injuries when she arrived on the scene. This has just added to my distress and disappointment about the accident. When i purchased the vehicle i was assured that this was a safe car, however, i have looked at the nhtsa website and there are multiple complaints about the hyundai elantra, including several sudden and unexplained acceleration crashes. I intend to file a complaint myself. The preliminary estimate of the damage to my car is over ten thousand dollars and now i face selling the car because there is no way that i would feel safe or comfortable driving it again. I have two young grandchildren that visit me frequently and i would never take the chance of having them in an unsafe car. I expect that you will be eager to conduct a full investigation into this matter and conduct a full inspection of my car as soon as possible.

My 2014 hyundai elantra limited has stalled on various occasions, all have which have been while i was at a stop. However, the problem seems to be getting worse for now i have stalled on the freeway while moving in traffic. My car has currently been at the dealer running a diagnostic for two days now and they cannot find anything wrong. Doing my own research online i have found multiple other complaints about the same stalling problem with the exact same make, model, and year. All reports have all stated that hyundai cannot find the problem. This can become a serious issue. *tr

My daughter attends a university in the los angeles area. I bought her this car thinking it would keep her safe on the hectic freeways. Three times now the car has stalled on the freeway. Each time the traffic was moving very slowly with stop and go traffic. I advised her to take it to the nearest dealership and she did. They called her and asked to keep the car because they were unable to duplicate the problem so they couldn't diagnose it. She picked the car up the next day and it still wasn't diagnosed. i've seen forums on the internet where this problem seems to recur with hyundais and is traced to the 1) maf sensor 2) fuel system; pump, injectors, filter 3) catalytic converter. if a technician has to "duplicate" the problem in order to diagnose it, it may never be fixed! Now i tell my daughter to stay in the slow lane just in case. So much for "safety". *tr

I am the financed owner of a black 2014 hyundai elantra that i had purchased in august of 2014. I was driving south bound on i-95 traveling in the farthest left lane when a car to the right of me, lost control of their vehicle and hit the rear passenger side of my car which pushed the front end of my car into the wall, which then caused the vehicle to do a 360 spin. After the 360 spin my vehicle had come to a complete stop facing north bound in the south bound i-95 lanes, immediately after stopping i was hit head on by an oncoming car. After being hit head on i was knocked unconscious and woke to my car in the emergency lanes to the right of the south bound lanes of i-95. I had realized that the passenger side window curtain airbags were the only airbags that had deployed during the entire car accident. After further inspection, it was obvious that the front frame of my vehicle was demolished right where the airbag sensors are located. I am highly concerned that there is a defect or malfunction with the airbags or possibly the computer system, not only for what could have been possible casualties, but a friend of mine has a 4 year old and purchased the exact same make/model vehicle. As well as, when i purchased this vehicle, i was assured that it was a safe car and that its safety features were up to par. I would feel reassured knowing that this was taken into further investigation because i am uncomfortable with the unknown reason of why my airbags did not deploy in a major accident. *tr

While driving on 5 freeway in california my 2014 hyundai elantra started to violently shake like someone hitting the brake. I threw it in neutral and help my wife turn the steering wheel because we lost power steering. We got lucky and had a space to coast to the side of the road. When we got towed to tuttle-click in irvine, ca and our car turned into the service department, they basically said we are on our own to find a ride back home and no loaner car. Two days later i have to call them to find out the problem, first a technician said that it was a bad battery but that would not have caused it to completely shut down. Then a few hours later the service manager calls to say it was the battery and that is what caused it to shut down on us. After (4) days of keeping the car, the hyundai dealership said that our battery had a catastrophic failure which caused our car to completely shut down on the freeway. I have filed a complaint with hyundai corporate but don't know what they can do?

Suspension consistently bounces over bumps on the freeway, sometimes so severe the car feels as if it will lose control and end up in another lane. Dealer replaced both rear shocks, which provided little improvement, as the front of the car still seems to bounce/hop over bumps at most speeds over 15mph. Vehicle still feels unstable, unsafe to drive. All dealers seem to deny there is an issue with seemingly little diagnostic work done. After checking hyundai-forums.com, found i'm not the only one to experience this unpleasant nature of the suspension after a few thousand miles. Note: car did not handle this terribly when new.

Returned home from work and parked vehicle in driveway, got out and got groceries from passenger side. Went inside and about twenty minutes later was informed by neighbor that my car had rolled out of the driveway, across a 55 mph street, and through ditch into neighbors yard. When myself and three other people approached the vehicle we were astonished to see that the e-brake had been engaged and yet the vehicle rolled down driveway with no signs of tire dragging. It is as if the e-brake completely failed for a short period of time. There are other hyundai's of similar build recalled for "parking break issues causing dragging while driving and possible rollaway while parked". Sadly hyundai is not helpful because my exact car does not have a current recall going. I believe that my car has an issue that is a defect of the caliber that creates the amount of damages necessary to recall a model of vehicle. Death or serious injury could have resulted due to the malfunction of the parking brake in my car. My vehicle has incurred above $3,000 worth of structural and body damage from rolling away at no fault of my own. It is currently at a repair shop and i am pursuing a claim with hyundai but they are not doing what is best for the safety of consumers. An inspector should be out to look at my brakes regardless of the outcome, circumstance, or fault. Instead of trying to avoid paying for my car they should be looking into if this malfunction could cause harm and property damage to other people. Thank you for caring about the safety of our cars and roads. *tr

The steering locks in the center as if there is a catch or something, what happens is, while driving your trying to keep center in your lane, as the car will either drift to the left or right, it will never stay centered, ok so while doing so, once you try to correct to center the car, the steering wheel seems to lock or catches, so as, when your trying to correct it, it takes a lot of force to over come this locking or catching in the steering wheel, so much as to, once your able to over come the locking/catching it then over corrects and causes the car to dart the opposite direction. it has caused me numerous times to go into on coming traffic or onto the shoulder, this is very dangerous, as i race dirt track, i know how to handle a car and i can say with a 100% firm conviction, that this is absolutely unsafe and a huge hazard to human life.. and this happens every time you drive it and at all speeds, though becomes increasingly dangerous as speeds increase, now also ill be making a youtube video of it soon.. 2014 hyundai elantra electronic steering dangers or something of the like..

My car had less than 10,000 miles when a bubble in the tire wall front passenger side was noticed during a profesional inspection (9/23/2015). I was advised to replace the tire immediately when i called the dealership.i did so. Then during a state inspection in january of 2016 i received a call that the tire wall on the front driver's side had a bubble. My car had 17,800 miles on it at this point.this tire was also replaced and the owner of the inspection shop told me that he had serviced other people with the same make and model that had the same problems. At this point i am concerned about driving my car for fear that a tire will blow out. Neither of the bubbles were noticeable to me. They are not easily found unless someone is working on the car. i believe these tires are defective. I have read many complaints about them and feel that a recall is warranted due to danger from tires blowing out while driving.

The panoramic sunroof of our 2014 hyundai elantra gt spontaneously exploded. We were traveling on i-75n, about 25 miles n of bradenton, fl at 65 - 70 mph in sunny conditions, temperature around 70, about 10:30 a.m. There were no cars/trucks directly in front of us and we were not near an overpass. All windows were rolled up and the automatic hvac system was on. We heard a loud boom somewhat like a shotgun blast in the ear. We looked around and saw the entire front section of the sunroof shattered. Glass rained in the car - front seat, back seat. There were large chunks of glass, small chunks, and even a piece of metal sunroof assembly in the car. We were frightened but managed to maintain control of the car. We pulled off at a rest stop to assess the problem. We are now afraid of the car - even if repaired, what next? Another explosion? Other safety problems? At the time of the explosion, the car had approximately 3500 miles on it. We have owned the car since october 28, 2015 having purchased it as a new car from harrisonburg hyundai in virginia.

When driving on the highway or a street and encounter a curve in the road, with some bumps in the road, the car just chatters sideways. Sometimes enough to almost go into the other lane. When you hit a bump straight on it just feels like the car is bottoming out. In my opinion i really feel that the suspension system is absolutely terrible and is very dangerous as if you hit more than one bump the car literally moves from 2 to 3 feet sideways. I have read on hyundai forums of similar situations and it seems hyundai does not acknowledge any problem.

I just called the service station and it will be approximately $161 to replace the tire. The situation is very dangerous. I could have been hurt seriously or killed, the call was very hard to control after hitting the shoulder and blew out the tire

The car will not turn on. The battery has been test and is fine. This has happened several times over the past year. The car is turned off and stationary, when the key is in the ignition all lights turn on but the car does not turn on. It has been taken to multiple hyundai dealerships and they have not been able to duplicate the problem. This is a dangerous situation because it has left me stranded several times in rural areas.

I had it brought back to the hyundai dealership i bought it from and was told by the service guys it started up no problem for them and they couldnt find anything wrong. I've noticed that when it happens, taking the car out of park, and then shifting back to park seems to trigger something and then the car will start. It happens randomly

The car sways from side to side, it is noticeable at around 25 mph and it becomes an issue reaching speeds of 70mph and above (at this pint the car sways far too much and feels unsafe to drive). I thought this could be tires, balancing, or alignment, but after doing maintenance with those three things, the car continues to sway a lot. when i go over a small bump the car shifts to the sides. Upon further online research, there are many car blogs and complains of people with the same issue with their struts. I bought the car at 48,000 and i noticed the issue then, but i thought i was being too picky. However, there is no reason the car should be doing this. Only conclusion is a poor suspension system. This could lead to serious accidents and hyundai should be looking into it.

Component Service brakes
I was driving in stop and go traffic approximately 30 - 35 miles per hour and i had to slam on the brakes of my 2014 hyundai elantra to avoid collision with a car that was stopped in traffic for no apparent reason approximately 8-9 car lengths in front of me and the brakes failed. The brake failure caused me have an accident as i had no other choice and no other way to stop the car except to rear end the car in front of me. That's the only way the car stopped. Instead of stopping when i put my foot on the brakes, i had no brakes at all and the car skidded over the length of 8-9 cars and only stopped when i hit the rear end of the car in front of me. When i initially put my foot on the brakes i felt a "thump" through the brake paddle and then i had no brakes. There had been rain earlier in the day, but at the time of the accident it was not raining. There was slight rear bumper to the car that i rear ended, but with the impact of the accident my car is basically totalled - front bumper and side lights were damaged and fell off of the car, my engine was pushed down, one of the motor mount bolts was totally broken off, the hood and the radiator were smashed in, valves were damaged, manifold was cracked, ac and heater damaged and i do not have any brakes as can be verified by my mechanic. For the speed that i was going in stop and go traffic i don't see how i could have had this much damage. It's unbelievable. All in all i am lucky to be alive and uninjured. I'm afraid to drive this car ever again due to brake failure.

The november accident was hard and several people have indicated that they were shocked they did not deploy including a deputy, a couple of doctors, and two insurance representatives. My car was totaled so i do not own it anymore. I was driving about 45-50 mph on a straight road and a person came from side street stop sign at me to clip the front passenger side, caused front driver side to hit a guardrail, and finally the car went head first into shallow ditch (hit rotten post and a lot of bushes). Driver door would not open all the way, a hole was in the driver front tire, the front passenger tire looked concaved/misshapen on the car.

Engine started with "dry (no oil)" sound, which dissipated within a few seconds. Checked the oil level, was ok. Traveled approximately 12-14 miles. At highway speed of 70-75 mph, engine lost power. Let off the gas pedal and engine died, i pushed in the clutch pedal, coasted, then let off the clutch pedal and engine restarted making a very loud sound. Made it to the highway exit, about 1.5 miles. As vehicle slowed, it was apparent that the engine had suffered a catastrophic failure, sounded like broken bolts rolling around in the engine. Parked the car. When the tow truck arrived, there was a large chunk of metal, assumed and later confirmed to be part of an internal engine component, laying on the ground which had came through the engine block and making a hole in it. Required an engine replacement.

No warranty on car cause its at 70,000 miles, my only means of transportation and don't have money to dump into a 4 yr old car with 70,000 miles. I see this is a problem with a lot of these cars, yet no recall. There has to be an issue related to all and it should be fixed by hyundai since it is a huge safety issue.

Dec of 2017 the car stalled while i was driving through a tunnel. Luckily we weren’t moving really due to traffic. The car started right up and was fine. Jan 2018 my engine started to make a loud thumping sound, especially upon cold start up. Brought vechile in feb 2018 bc the souls was starting to happen all the time. First trip into hyundai they told me there were no codes coming up and it t was bc of my oil filter not being be correct size. However, i have had my oil changes done every 3-5 thousand miles and never once had any issue, ever. Mind you my car just turned three. They changed the oil filter even though i literally had an oil change about two weeks earlier and the issues starts in december. Nothing changed and nothing was fixed, the sound was still there. Brought it back about a week and a half later overnight so they could do the cold startup. Hyundai called me that morning and said my engine was failing and that i needed a new one replaced. I waited three months for the replacement engine bc it was on back order nationwide. I relieved the car back mid may on a saturday. That following monday the car was dead. Could not start it. The car was towed to hyundai, and the battery was dead. Hyundai replaced the battery. About two weeks later i started having issues while idling and in gear. The engine was skating and my rpms were going over 1 just sitting. I brought the car in and they again told me there were no codes and that the engine needed to get used to the car again. Another two weeks go by and now it’s getting worse and it’s especially bad in reverser. I brought it back in and they said that i needed my ignition coil packs changed bc my engine is misfiring. They sent me home with my car and said it was fine to drive. A few days later i leave work and it won’t start again. It was towed to hyundai and they can’t find anything wrong.

I started my car with no problem and drove maybe 15 min from my home. I went into the store and came back out and the car struggled to start. After the second attempt the car started although it didn’t sound right. After driving a minute up the road the car shut completely off and wouldn’t start. After several failed attempts of trying to start my car i had it towed to my home. I had a mechanic come to check it out and was told that there were metal shavings in the oil, which is a sign that the engine was failing. I then explained to him that the car has been knocking for a few months and he informed me that hyundai recalled a few models for the same reason. I did some research on mine and realized there are several people with the same issue and hyundai has done nothing about it.

On december 8, 2017 i purchased a 2014 hyundai elantra coupe. On august 3, 2018 while driving on the highway the car started making rattling noises. I pulled over and the car shut down. I had to have the car towed. I contacted the hyundai corporation. I was instructed to take the car to my local hyundai dealership. The hyundai contact stated that it was not normal that a three year old hyundai automobile engine should die. The hyundai contact stated that my local hyundai dealership should perform a pa. Pa is a prior approval. The pa was performed and along with the hyundai dealerships director of service kevin anderson support, and agreement of abnormality, the pa was submitted. The pa came back as denied stating “excessive mileage”. The director of service disagreed and resubmitted the pa. The case was elevated to a hyundai corporate case manager by the name cameron. Cameron rejected the pa as well but changed the reasoning to “mileage over warranty”. The whole reason for the pa in the first place was because the car was out of warranty. I at this point on august 31, 2018 overnighted a letter to the ceo of hyundai mr. Kyung soo lee. To date i have received no response from the hyundai corporation. In speaking with the dealership service director i was informed that at his dealership alone there are 5/6 hyundai elantras that have lost their engines. He also informed me that the hyundai sonata has an open recall on the engine. He stated that the engines for both the sonata and elantra vehicles are currently back ordered for a term of at least 1 to 2 years. In my personal online research i have found complaints of the exact circumstances happening to the elantra engines: highway driving, no warning indicators, rattling noises, vehicle stopping, and engine dead. i am enclosing the ceo letter along with the pa documentation.

2014 elantra gt manual 6 speed, purchased 8/6/18 with 31,636 miles from a non hyundai dealer in massachusetts. I live in upstate ny. The car came with a 90 day or 3,750 mile dealer warranty, and is still under the factory warranty up to 60,000 miles. I'm the 2nd owner. At approx 34,500 miles, on 10/5/18, while accelerating uphill, the engine began to make a sharp and loud rapping and squealing noise and lost power. I was in heavy traffic on a country road with no where to stop, but i managed to pull over after coasting downhill for approximately one mile. I checked the engine oil immediately and there was no oil showing on the dipstick. I called my wife to come and pick me up and asked her to bring 3 quarts of sae 5-20 oil as indicated on the fill cap. It took 2 quarts of added oil for any oil to show on the dipstick, indicating that there had been significant and excessive oil consumption in the 2 months from my date of purchase, at which time the dipstick indicated that the oil was at the full level. The car had an oil change prior to my purchase per the salesman at the dealership where i bought the car. There were no warning lights on prior to the engine failure, and non came on afterward. The car is at a local hyundai dealer being diagnosed. The hyundai dealer provided me with a loaner car "for the duration", that they told me was included as part of the factory warranty and would be free of charge. I suspect a crankshaft bearing, con rod bearing and/or wrist pin failure, and seized piston(s) due to oil starvation.

I have noticed that the sound coming from the engine is delayed kinda, almost like its not getting enough air at the right time . My car will have a hard time accelerating and it will hit high rmps then shift. I have to just slow down before the shift cause sometimes it scares me. I hear a ticking sound sometime but that could be music. My breaks are really touchy and sometime seem to have no traction when i need it most. All these things happen when i am driving. When i am trying to accelerate or break i can fill some kind of pull from behind the car.

Complained to hyundai several times for few years to different dealers. None of them had taken any action and they say the lights are according to specs. The lights fall close and spread wide but they do not focus straight and far. This is happening from the beginning of the car purchased in 2014. Till now it is used only during day times but recently i have started using at night times and feeling more unsecure. Many times i had to have the high beam to be safe.

I have a 2014 hyundai elantra, i'm having problem with my left signal. I stopped @ a red light turned my left signal on. I notice my left signal was flashing fast. When it went of it cause my head lights & my lights in the inside to blink off & on. When i got home i check my lights and notice the left signal bulb in the front was burned. I went to a auto place and replaced a new bulb. It last for @ least 4 months & it went again acting up. I change da bulb again after 4 months it starts again. I took it to a dealership the bulb was change then. I notice after several months it starts acting up. I can't keep bringing it to the dealership or to a auto place to replace the bulb. Because it cost me i feel it is a safety hazard. Because everytime i use my left signal my headlights blinks off & on outside & inside of my car. I'm afraid i will be driving & when i'll use that left signal & nothing will come back on. The vehicles in front or back want see me or no what i'm doing. That's a big hazard to my life & others on the road also. My name is [xxx], when you will pull it up under the vin# it's under my mother name [xxx] i [xxx] am the driver of the car. If no answer please leave your name & a number do i can contact u back. I appreciate you taking the time to read my complaint on what's going on with my car.

After being parked overnight, sporadically the car will not shift out of park upon pressing the brake and starting the car. The little button on the shifter that you push in order to move out of park is locked and when pressed, emits a sound coming from the ignition where you put the key in. You can hear it click from the steering column each time you press the release button on the shifter. The only way to fix the problem is to turn the car off and back on again. Then the car shifts out of park normally. I cannot get the car to replicate this for the mechanic, as it only happens every few days.

While driving the car, the engine would randomly shut off. This happened 3 times while driving and 1 time while stopping. When sitting in park, the oil light stats to flash. After taking it into a dealer, they informed me the engine would need to be replaced. There is only 112,000 miles on a 2014 car. It has had regular oil changes and kept in good condition. This looks to be an issue with the engine hyundai puts in their vehicles. The same problem has been reported by many people.

Had an issue with the engine stalling at low speeds or complete stop. This would happen on city streets. It happened several times over a period of days. I took it to a mechanic friend and he said it was something to do with the power brakes putting air into the engine so i replaced the booster. The next time i went driving it did it again in about an hour. Took it to a mechanic who sent it to vandergriff hyundai in arlington, texas. Their diagnoses was that it needed a new timing chain and other parts associated with the timing chain. With all the expenses involved the mechanic said he could get a used engine for just a little more than he could fix the timing chain for but still much cheaper than the dealer would to replace just the timing chain. I had the new engine installed but transmission stopped working after about 8 hours of driving. Then i had the transmission replaced. This mechanic was not a highly skilled mechanic. Long story short. Attempting to get the stalling problem fixed. I had a new engine installed, a new transmission, and another engine. The mechanic lost the ambient temperature sensor so the a/c wouldn't work. The humidity built up in the car during a rain storm. I couldn't see and got stuck in high water blowing out that engine. Now it was cool so i didn't need the a/c. But when the weather got warmer i went to another mechanic and he replaced the ambient temperature sensor so the a/c would work. But now the car is stalling again. Same problem. So the diagnosis by vandergriff hyundai was obviously incorrect and it looks like others have had this same problem.

In jan 2018 while driving my car a notice a knocking noise. I brought my car in for an oil change and ask about the noise they had told me that it maybe my oil pump. Never had any stalling problems as others had reported but did have a few times that it seemed like it did not want to shift until i let off the gas pedal. Brought car to dealer ship(rowe, auburn,me) to have it checked as it was still under the power train warranty. Left it there on feb 5, 2018. They called me later that morning and told me that my engine needed to be replaced. Internal problem. Not sure what that means. So i asked if this was going to be covered 100% as it was still under warranty they said yes. So they put me in a loaner car. Checked back in at the end of the month and was told my engine was on national back order until possible may 2018. So here it is may 14, 2018 and still have not heard when i'll get my car back.

As i was driving my oil light came on, it was flickering on and off then all of a sudden my car just stopped and the check engine, battery, and oil light came on. I took it to the shop the told me it was the battery, so i replaced it. 2 months later the same thing happened and i was told it was the fuel pump, so i replaced the fuel pump, and had the oil changed. Now it's been 3 months and i am having the same issue. I love my elantra but this issue is causing me more money and time. No codes come up when they hook it up for diagnostics so this has to be an issue with a faulty part in the car.

Takata recall on 9/23/2018, about an hour after a rainstorm (car was garaged during storm) my car was in motion at 40 mph in the left lane on a curve of a southbound interstate exit i275. The car suddenly went sideways, and began fishtailing. I tried to pump the breaks but they were not working. The vehicle then smashed the front side of bumper into the guard rail, and pushed me across two traffic lanes. The vehicle stopped in the right lane, facing north in a southbound exit. I tried to put it in reverse to get into the shoulder, and there was no acceleration. The engine had shut off on me while driving on the interstate. i do not know what failed the engine, or why it shut off. hyundai corporate was contacted and they opened a case, and performed a full inspection. On 11/12/18 hyundai claimed "we cannot agree that the accident involved a product defect and are declining any financial assistance." a third party mechanic was then contacted, and found code c1555 and a failing vvti cylinoid. there is no recall. there is no way to prove this car is unsafe with the routes i have taken so far. I will not accept this answer. The engine of this car shut off and could have been fatal. It is also terrifying to think about who would to be blamed for such a fatal or dangerous accident since hyundai "couldn't find any defect." i asked for results of the scan and the case manager, christina replied that i am not authorized to see them, for "results are for proprietary use only." this company needs to own up to their risky product!

Component Steering
When we drive the car the steering wheel will stick or seem to catch on something which makes it very hard to drive straight and not all over the rd like were drunk. It doesn't do it if you are turning. Only when you drive straight. It has definitely almost caused some accidents, and also tickets too! I would think that the steering would be considered a safety issue and i most definitely think hyundai would want to make their care owners their priority since we are driving their name and reputation. I most definitely want to believe that my life and safety of myself but also my kids and husband as well! Thank you for taking the time to read this.

When i start my car on a daily basis it works perfectly fine. Suddenly ill go out to start my car and its not starting after replacing the camshaft sensors, battery, starter and more. Ive got my car put on the diagnostic tests at the actual dealership and there is nothing shown. Ive had my car towed two times to different dealerships and ive managed to find the issue which after reasearching as well that the "range switch" could be the problem or "shift interlock". Sometimes it will start and sometimes it wont start at times until i have to have it towed these last couple of times. This has been a major issue with my everyday life getting back and forth to work and with a child! Its stressful! It doesn't matter if its hot or cold outside the car will not start certain times of the year.

The motor started making a clicking noise very faint at first then over time it got louder then the engine light came on we had the car towed to the dealership we purchased the car. We were told that it needed a tear down to determine if the car needed a new engine they did that, then we were told since we were loyal customers had purchased 3 cars from massey and it had 104,000 miles 4 thousand over warranty that hyundai would probably cover part or all of the cost! We were told that if hyundai didn't cover the cost that it would cost us a couple of thousand dollars!...so we told them to fix the car hyundai was going to cover some of the cost didn't know how much though! We were never told...and we've never been told how much hyundai covered. The car needed a few minor repairs like the serpentine belt which we needed to pay for but we ended up paying $2300.00 dollars we have talked to other hyundai owners that have had similar problems with their engines just wanted to know if there were any recalls for the engine?

While driving my 2014 hyundai elantra it started to slow down, and the check engine light came one along with the a flashing oil light. I found it funny because i had just had the oil changed 1 week before. The next thing i knew the car just stopped mid driving in heavy traffic on the freeway.. I had it towed back to the mechanic and they checked everything out and i was told i needed a new engine. I don't see how when i keep my matience up on my car. But as i look up things on the internet i see the 2014 elantra is giving alot of people problems when it comes to the engine. And i am not sure why hyundai has not done a recall on the engines here in the us but have done so in canda and overseas. I am a medical retired service member and on a fixed income. So paying 1000s of dollars for a new engine is not in my budget. Nor buying a new car ... Hyundai has been great with customer service thus far but now i am frustrated and sick to my stomach with the way i have been treated. Thank you for nothing...

I bought this car in 2017. The dealer passed it for state inspection,after. A day noticed a rumble in front end. Brought to dealer, was told brake rotors were warped. They replaced rotors. Problem solved. Two years later went for state inspection and rotors and brake pads are worn out. This would indicate an over heating of brakes. Hot breaks will cause loss of brakes or take longer to stop. This would also explain other complaints about brakes,and why it can't be duplicated when tested by mechanics they don't drive it long enough.

My wife was in stop and go traffic on the highway and the brakes failed to work, and she rear-ended the vehicle in front of her. We went to the hyundai dealership nearby and they tested it for two days and could not replicate the issue. On one of their tests the engine died and the brake system failed but they had not yet hooked up the diagnostic equipment so they never captured the source of that failure. All other times the breaks and the engine worked fine. The result was that they cannot diagnose the problem.

I am the second owner of a 2014 hyundai elantra that now has 72,000 miles on it. After experiencing recent issues within the engine of this vehicle, i took it to dave hallman hyundai in erie, pa where it was determined that the vehicle needed an engine replacement. It was also decided that i would pay the costs of the labor, which totals $2,345. during this experience i have found that hyundai sonatas, sante fes, and elantras across the country are experiencing the same issue. As a matter of fact, when i initially took my vehicle to a local mechanic, employees were also working on a santa fe that had experienced engine failure, leading me to question the quality of these vehicles when the issue is so prominent. in the past 4½ years i have bought two vehicles from hyundai, but for reasons beyond my control, have had to replace the first and now potentially the second. Moreover, i have been without a vehicle for four weeks now. I was informed a case manager could assist me, but of the multiple hyundai representatives, none were able to provide even a phone number. Eight days after representatives told me the case had been submitted, the case manager contacted me only to tell me he could offer no assistance. I was not informed my case would be deemed void in two days, but just happened to call and check. i understand hyundai maintains policies around the service that can and cannot be provided to second owners. I also understand that as a second owner, my vehicle’s warranty would have expired 12,000 miles ago. However, i am asking that hyundai correct its mistake and pay full price for selling a defected product that inhibited the safety, reliability, and quality of my vehicle. There is no reason my car should have completely failed this early on. I do not feel hyundai's customers are responsible for paying to correct such a prominent mistake.

I purchased a 2014 hyundai elantra gt brand new. Admittedly i put a lot of miles on my vehicle and it had 121000 miles. However, i always kept up on my maintenance and always used synthetic oil since the first oil change. After getting an oil change i was about 3 miles from the facility and my car suddenly lost rpm and the speed decreased. I pulled over to the side of the road and turned my vehicle off. No lights came on, not engine or oil. I turned the vehicle back on and suddenly the engine started making a rattling noise. I called a tow truck and had the vehicle towed to my local garage. That mechanic said he thought it was the timing chain. I then had the car towed to dickson city hyundai. There, they said i needed a new engine. I began speaking with a representative from hyundai customer care. I ended up having to pay half of the engine replacement and labor costs. My portion was $3250. This is completely ridiculous that a vehicle always maintained would have the engine gone a month before the five year anniversary of purchasing it. I will never buy another hyundai in my life.

First noticed an issue with extremely jerky driving, but added gas and the problem went away, and i thought it was a one-time thing. About a week later, it happened again. I set an appointment to the murdock hyundai of murray utah to solve this issue that was putting my family and my security in risk. On june 18th around 6 pm, the did a diagnostic check in the dealership and then, they recommended me to clean my gas injectors, to do a tune-up, to do an alignment and to add new four tires change since they were totally damaged., some kind of hyundai solvent cleaners for the gas engine. All of the services had a total of $1043 dollars. I thought it was all it needed but not it was not. a few days later, the car started to have the same symptoms as before, losing power again, engine slowing down and bad gas mileage... I set up another appointment with the dealership.

Bought brand new, original owner warranty verified and regular maintenance done at 5k intervals instead of 7500 miles due to burning oil within first year of ownership. Dealership has refused opportunities to inspect and repair for other warrantable defects in backup camara, sunroof, etc. Car out of service since 3-28-19, at 55000 miles clutch assembly rivets detached and powertrain failed causing a cracked rod. Car was presented to dealer. Dealer refused. Hyundai assurance refused tow to next dealer without upfront payment. Car was taken to local aamco where defective rivets were diagnosed. Oem clutch was retained for evidence. Car was examined by second ase technician, car was deemed hazardous to drive and could cause fire if rod broke and punctured engine wall due to direct injection system. Costs for repair/rental/tow approached 15000, so rental was turned in and another vehicle was purchased to provide transportation while arbitrating complaint. Its only vehicle single parent and warranty covers repair/tow/rental, but hyundai corporate and dealer have yet to provide any remedy (still as of 7-17-19) per cfr rule 703 or magnusson-moss act claim with bbb autoline was filed certified mail on 5-15-19. Bbb mediator faked phone call agreement and perjured settlement letter. Offer was never accepted because neither hyundai nor bbb are following rule 703 procedures and did not complete response form. Instead bbb assigned a specialist to personally attack and interrogate attempting to coerce me. Multiple requests for arbitration have been negated or ignored. Local bbb office in town of residence was contacted end of june. The representative that said she could get arbitration setup was fired the day after. Was told by director of operations they may not have arbitrator available and will require travel 5 hrs away to attend hearing if hyundai agrees to arbitrate?

After driving on the highway the engine started making a significant knocking sound. I pulled over and had the car towed to the dealer. They performed an engine diagnosis and removed the oil pan to find a lot of metal flakes. I was advised not to drive the vehicle (engine would likely seize) and informed that the engine needed to be replaced. The vehicle only has 85,000 miles on it, and the repair quotes are $6,500-8,500, which is almost what the vehicle was worth before the engine failure. Neither the manufacturer or the dealer would provide financial assistance towards repair due to me being the second owner. Since taking ownership at approximately 70,000 miles i have had every recommended maintenance performed by the dealer. No indication was ever given to me about there being metal in the oil pan or any potential problem arising. I have since found out that these engines have a high failure rate, and the manufacturer fights tooth-and-nail to avoid acknowledging a problem or assisting with repair costs for second owners -- even if well under the 100,000-mile power train warranty provided to original owners.

While driving on interstate 8e just before pine valley, in lane one, my vehicle suddenly began making a loud knocking noise. A moment later, the oil light came on, then the engine light and then the car stalled and could not be restarted. Luckily, as soon as the lights came on and the car stalled we were able to make it to the right hand shoulder. Once there we tried to restart the vehicle but was unable to do so. The vehicle was towed to frank hyundai. Yesterday we were informed that the vehicle's engine is seized and requires a new engine. I am the second owner and have only had the vehicle for 2 yrs and it only has 87,000 miles on it. It has been well maintained. There is absolutely no reason the engine should have seized suddenly as it did. All vehicle fluids were checked and operational safety checks were performed and were good prior to our trip. We are lucky to have not been hit by another vehicle when this occurred. I understand that this is occurring in other elantras of my same year in addition to the other hyundai vehicles that have already been recalled. It my urgent request that this be investigated before someone does get injured or killed. I also request that hyundai inclued the elantras with same the affected years of the sonata and santa fe's, such as my 2014 be included in the recall.

Component Steering
When driving at speeds over 45 mph the steering feels as if it "locks" in the center position driving straight. Not that it is stiffer to to turn but "locks' in the center position. You must use more force to get past this "lock" or null position. This is not speed sensitive steering! This seems only to happen when driving straight and trying to make small input steering corrections. When using more force to get past the lock position you can tend to over steer, which can be dangerous. *js

My car is a manual transmission and i noticed the shift started to get stuck here and there. Within a couple days and very little driving, i got stuck and had to have it towed because it wouldn't shift at all. It only has 31,000 miles so i didn't think it could be the clutch. after 2.5 weeks at the dealer, they said it's not a recall but is a hyundai "alert", covered by warranty and that there's a defect that allows debris in which jams the shift. The transmission was removed, the shifter cleaned up and a patch kit put in to keep it from happening again. Within a couple days and less than 20 miles, i lost all ability to shift and the car when backing out of a parking spot. It started aggressively jumping forward and back with no control. I was stopped by a curb. This was in a parking lot and i could have hit a person! It would no longer start got towed back to the dealer and i'm awaiting an answer.

After reaching approx. 60,000 miles my engine developed a slight ticking noise. I've maintained regular oil changes, rotations and other general maintenance along with ensure my car seldom if ever hits empty. In the past few years of owning the car, i've had trouble with the start up. I contributed this to the cold weather of chicago. As the temperatures have been rather fair lately, i've been having the same issue where it wont start initially. Today, my engine died twice while in traffic with no warning, no sounds or anything. I was able to start it up just fine today and after each stall but am more concerned of a larger issue. To my knowledge this has been a problem with a number of hyundai vehicles in the 2014 class along with a number of elantras.my issue occured while driving on the city streets.

Bought my elantra gt hatchback 4 years ago with 34k miles used, good condition! I had a 2007 hyundai elantra prior and loved it so why not i thought. I have kept up with my oil changes, tire rotations, new tires etc recently this year my car started making a clicking noise, we figured it might be the oil so i replaced it, but wanted still the hyundai dealership to check it out. On my way to the dealership the car's engine light kept flashing, then when i pulled over the oil light came on and then the battery light, this had never happened before, so i had to get my car towed to the dealership. They called and said i would need a new engine basically, something related to the cylinders etc. I am trying all avenues to figure out how to get the car fixed and out of my hands, unfortunately i am not buying hyundai again, especially since reading that others have had the same issue and hyundai still refuses to add this model to their sonata and santa fe recall, ridiculous. Sorry hyundai you have lost my business since you refuse to take up responsibility for your mistakes.

The car engine shut off numerous times. The panel did not show any codes - no check engine light was lighting. Eventually the problem got worse, and the car stopped more frequently in city/street driving and on the chicago edens highway during rush hour, with no check engine light appearing.this is a very serious safety concern. Upon taking the vehicle to multiple auto mechanics for the purpose of receiving multiple opinions, the hyundai dealership mechanics told us we needed to change the engine - with no solid reasoning or incremental evidence that the problem was a) truly, an engine mechanics or other related operating issue or 2) serious enough problem to require an entire engine overhaul. When contacting hyundai america, they were not able to accept the facts of which are a very serious, immanent manufacturer concern, and more importantly, consumer confidence and safety concern. There were no recalls on this vehicle. We have entire reason to believe based on our factual information that hyundai is presenting dishonest and potentially harmful information to their customers, from the vehicle's lack of safety notification and improper response in handling the situation with the consumer. I talked with the hyundai case manager. Their system has my info and my car info, and our conversation. I had informed case manager, that i'm going to file a complaint to nhtsa against hyundai poor performance and issue resolution. Thanks for your support and your investigation. *ln *js

It makes a clicking noise when i try to turn it on, when i turn on the car white smoke that smells really strong starts coming out of the exhaust and the car won't drive, if i put it on drive it jumps a lot and turns off by itself. I have read an article in which many users of the hyundai elantra from the years 2011 to 2015 have this same motor issues. Something is not right with the engine. Even before this happened, the steering wheel feels really rough, its not smooth its not easy to move the steering wheel especially when making a u- turn or turning on a street, i have to pull really hard to make turns, i don't think this is safe. *tr

After changing spark plugs, it was determined one blew.

I purchased this car new. The engine has stalled while trying to accelerate several times since i have had this car. This started the first year or so that i had it. Hyundai has checked while under warranty and said there is nothing wrong. Once i was told that the computer needed to be reset. I have had regular maintenance over the life of the car. There are now just over 110,000 miles on the car. I recently was driving on a secondary road a few blocks from home. The car made a screeching sound, almost stalled, and then there was an engine ticking noise. No warning lights came on. I had it towed to a local mechanic that i trust. I was told that i would need new engine because it sounded like there was loose metal in the engine. I have also read that this is a common issue in hyundai 2.0l engines. This car has mostly highway miles on it. It has been well maintained and has always had the oil changed before the manufacturer's recommended mileage. I think this engine should still be covered as if it is under warranty. It is possible that not enough of the elantra gt (i think most people buy the coupe which has a different engine) have been sold to create a recall. It is also possible that many of the ones that have been purchased have been traded in. Over the past 3 to 4 years, i have received numerous letters and cards from hyundai. They specifically said that they needed me to trade in my elantra gt and they would offer me top dollar on a trade in or trade up. I now think they wanted my car back because they knew this engine had problems and hoped they could just sell me a different car. I just paid this car off and intended to drive it several more years. This is a faulty engine. No car that has been maintained should have this happen. I still have a jeep i bought in 1994 with over 200k miles and it runs great! This engine should be recalled or at least investigated

Purchased this car used and within two years at 80k the engine is done. Always troubles even before ...oil and connectivity issues beforehand, shop had 3x, paid my 100 deductible 3x because i had purchased 3k warranty additionally at the time of sale. so as it stands now, i have no car and owe 8k on a loan. hyundai wants nothing to do with the recalled engine that was so called repaired, i am not the original owner, they state. My warranty company says only paying for value of car and then your warranty with us is void. The amount they allow is only for a used engine, why would i buy another used engine with the same issues with no warranty coverage, not to mention the fact the shop looked for a month and to no avail was there a used motor in the usa...hummmm, i wonder why? So to buy a new one, you go overseas and that would cost me 3k more on top of the warrenty pay out and 6 weeks out lead time. I cant believe with all the issues people have and the more and more recalls they are doing for engines and firers they are not connected to these cars as well. I am now out 8k on my loan and no car. I will never ever purchase or have a good thing to say about hyundai or kia...ever !!! This is cost me so my time and money and aggravation i feel like going to my local news with my strory, this is totally wrong!

Component Electrical system | engine | power train
The transmission range sensor on my car died after about 78000 miles and caused the car to lock up while on the highway. Stayed in 3rd gear and for a few weeks before would lock up while in park, neutral, reverse and drive (most commonly while in park). This nearly caused a couple of accidents. After doing some research this appears to be a common problem with elantras dating all the way back to 2007 and even has continued past my model year (2014) into 2015 models. The dealership even referred to it aso a faulty range sensor which to me seems to imply that they know about this issue. I couldn't shift and had a more difficult time slowing down and speeding up than usual. The part is relatively inexpensive but the diagnostic fee plus labor to remove and replace the faulty mechanical part was well over $150, resulting in a total bill of $210. A part failure that causes the vehicles computer, transmission and drivetrain to lose all connection to one another can be very dangerous, especially while on the highway. at first it happened only while stationary in park, the car would lock up while sitting with the engine running for a while. I would turn off the engine and re-engage the vehicle and everything would operate as normal. Then it occurred while backing down the hill out of my driveway, locked up in reverse, i applied the brakes, set the parking brake and turned off the car while still in reverse. (i live in a quiet subdivision of a small town of 12,000, what if this happened in a busier or more heavily populated area?) i was still able to start the vehicle while in reverse and shortly thereafter while in neutral. Then tuesday morning while on the interstate (i-95) the gear and drive mode indicator on the tachometer went blank, i was stuck in 3rd gear (limp mode) and my car once slowing down had a difficult time accelerating after stopping.

The sunglass holder on the ceiling repeatedly breaks and hangs down blocking the rear view mirror. Less than a year or 2 after i bought this car new, the clasp which holds the sunglass holder up broke. I've had it replaced 2 or 3 times now and it never lasts more than 6 months or a year before it starts falling again. It starts just falling when i hit a bump and then won't stay up at all. Now that my car is no longer covered by warranty, hyundai is telling me it'll cost $420 to fix so we've kept it duct taped up so that we can see out the rear view mirror. This sometimes works in the winter, but in the florida heat, even the strongest gorilla tape melts and doesn't stay up for more than 5 minutes at a time.

I learned the illuminated airbag light means my airbags will not deploy in a crash. I've never had an issue with airbags in any vehicle i've owned. Some having over 300,000 miles.

Some times when i crank my car the engine will try to start but makes a constant sputter and then i cut it off i have to let it sit for an hour and then try to crank it again to seee if it will start. My battery, starter, and alternator are good.

Component Engine
The engine started making a ticking noise as early as 40k miles. It ran ok and i was lead to believe this was "normal" from the dealership. I maintained the vehicle as required until 88k while noticing more and more oil was being consumed. After slowing down and turning from a highway on to a county road, the automatic vehicle began to shift erratically and could not go faster than 40mph and then the engine turned off. I managed to get to the side of the road while this occurred. The engine started, but driving but the gears would not shift properly causing the engine to stall. In the dealership, the diagnosis was a new engine. I am the second owner and was told there was initially nothing could be done under warrantee with the mileage (while suggesting i must have went way too long between oil changes.....not even close to correct). The dealership made an appeal to hyundai and offered to pay for half of the cost of a new engine. So i am supposed to be happy paying only $4200. The new engine does not have a ticking sound and i highly suspect that was the start of the problem before. I'm seeing the "ticking" sound in many of the complaints and can't believe a recall still hasn't been issued for this. I don't trust this car or hyundai to do the right thing on their own.

Troubles with the power/battery. Troubles started around 80k miles. At first the battery was a suspicion. A new battery was bought and then we were told a specific battery was needed which we obtained and put into the car. I am unsure if the battery is the issue (at this point i don't think it is). Recently, the car at about 86k miles, has had times where it does not start. For example, times where we go to the store or even left overnight, the car will not turn on. No sign of life at all. We wait a while then try it again. After a while, the car eventually turns on but there is no telling how long it will take. There have been occasions where we are driving and the dash board lights will all turn on at once then turn off. Other times we will be driving and the radio/clock screen will randomly turn off and on as if the car was turned off. At this point we are worried we will be stranded if we take this car out into the community. The car has not turned on while at home, visiting out in the community, and at work. The lights on the dash and radio face acts up while driving. No check engine light has ever came on.

2014 hyundai elantra - when the vehicle is at low speed (under 30), and after warming up it shuts off with no noise, no warning it just shuts off. There was one knocking idling at a stop light just before it shut off. But for both my daughter and myself it shut off with no warning. There are no check engine or warning lights on, it is not throwing a code. The dealer has said there is sludge in the engine and that the engine needs to be replaced - in a 2014 with 145k, single owner. In reading online, there is a class action lawsuit open - brown v hyundai where multiple owners have reported the exact same symptoms and dealer resolution but there is a know piston defect that is causing this problem. No tsb issued in us but they did in canada for the same problem.

The car had a rattle or click in the front end for years but mechanics had cleared that no concern. At 120000 miles on trip out of town and without warning, the car locked up and wouldn’t drive anymore on a busy interstate!! We had it towed to mechanic and was informed that engine locked up and would no longer start! Car is still out of town! And now we have to make a decision as to whether replace it or sell it, several hours away from our home! There is a civil lawyer that contacted me regarding a law suit for this exact same problem that has been occurring. However, our car doesn’t qualify because it’s over 100,000 miles!!:/ please consider this issue for recall because this is a recurring issue that i am finding all over the internet and it’s a very serious safety issue!!!

I own a 2014 hyundai elantra limited. It handles normally when in town driving but while driving highway speeds, the vehicle veers slightly from left to right and you cannot keep the vehicle straight in center. It is hard to maneuver as the steering appears to stick in either position as you fight to keep it in the center of the road. It sticks more to the left than to the right. I am amazed that there has not been a recall on these cars because there are so many hyundai's having the same issue. I cannot put a specific date on the incident because the vehicle does this all the time when on the highway so i just picked the date that i bought the car from a dealer.

The esc (traction control) randomly comes on while cruising at highway speeds on straight, level, dry roads (often on interstates). Sometimes the abs lights also light up. Brakes are applied and power to the engine is suspended making the can nearly impossible to control properly. my car has been in the shop now under warranty for over 60 consecutive days and the dealership and hyundai cannot determine the reason for this malfunction. After repeated requests to have the car repaired under warranty, this car has been in an accident and i have asked hyundai to determine the relevance of this repeated malfunction in the accident where the car would not stop quickly enough to avoid another motorist. this car was purchased used with 20,185 miles on it and currently has around 22k miles and is under a bumper to bumper warranty.

My 2014 hyundai elantra has numerous issues. The car feels unsafe when driving down interstate when a very small flaw makes it seem you are losing control of the vehicle. It feels as if the back end is coming around as if it is going to do a 360 in the road. It also has a feeling in the steering wheel that it wants to lock up and have to apply more pressure to wheel and it finally breaks loose but feels uncomfortable as if you are going into other lanes. It does this in either direction. Sometimes i feel the steering is locking up and could cause a major accident. There have been many different reports of these same issues and apparently hyundai charges outrageous prices just to tell you nothing is wrong. There is something wrong with these cars and really needs attention before someone is killed.

After less than 2 years, the car battery dies and disables the control of this particular car and year. Many customers, according to reviews, seem to have the same problem. Should the battery falter when driving on a highway, serious accidents could result. My vehicle was moving at a slow pace in the parking lot when the battery died. I lost control of the car. I was not expecting the battery to die as it is only about 18 months old. I do not have a picture. The car is at the dealership.

The car intermittently does not start. Car will start after it sits for a length of time (could be hours or days) or after it has been towed to the dealership. Movement seems to shake the connection if that is the problem, into working. Has left owner stranded on numerous occasions in the last 5 weeks. Dealership says that if it can not reproduce the problem, therefore they can not diagnose it. Very dangerous for me if i get stranded in an unsafe area. Dealer changed the starter but is unwilling to try anything else. I stated that i did not want the car until it was fixed and safe to drive. Dealership told me to buy another car since "i didn't want" this car.
