Deer ran in front of my car. Air bags inflated and stayed so for quite a while. when i got out of the car i noticed my foot was burnt with skin off and legs were burning from the powder in air bags. I know the bags should inflat but the smoke from this kept up for quite a while. I did not think this powder should have kept coming out so much and so did passerby people who stopped to help. We had the powder in our eyes.

As i was accelerating onto a highway the electronic emergency brake system ( attached to rear wheels of vehicle) without warning activated while vehicle was accelerating at speeds of over 55 mph. Brake system pulsed violently and then wheels completely locked up cause the car to rear wheels locked up causing damage to entire rear braking system. Hyundai failed to alert me to this danger and only disclosed it after the vehicle failed. After the vehicle was towed to the hyundai dealership, hyundai now claims to have this notice out- manufacturer campaign id: tff 2016 sonata electric parking brake logic update. Luckily, we maintained control of the vehicle throughout the skid and system failures. We had to throw water on rear wheels/brakes to keep them from catching on fire. Entire rear brake system destroyed...multiple sensor systems failed for this fault condition to occur. According to hyundai manuals, this situation is impossible with their redundant sensors/check sensors, yet it did occur. Hyundai is investigating, however they did not seem too concerned that they put my family in danger with a product they knew was defective, yet they never alerted me to this issue. Vehicle has 5002 miles on it, and was purchased 3-5-2016, owned just over 3 months.... Updated 08/23/16 *bf updated 06/15/18*jb

While driving 65mph at 10pm on a the interstate, i heard a pound "thunk" and thought i had a tire issue, so began to steer toward the emergency lane. I quickly realized i had no power to accelerate, no power steering and the dash was blacked out...car was dead. Only ever thing working was radio, emergency flashers and dome light. Door locks did not even work. Called for roadside assistance and car was towed. I have no further information about the car's disposition as it was a rental. It was terrifying and could have ended catastrophically in serious injury or death. The reason i am filing this report is to insure it will be investigated thoroughly. I did report it to hyundai .

If i open the driver side door while the vehicle is on, a warning light "check bsd system" is displayed on the info display. The warning stays on until the vehicle is turned off and turned back on. It shuts down the driver assistance feature on the vehicle. I've taken it into the dealership twice and they are unable to tell me why this is happening and have not been able to fix the problem. The service write up person asked was the vehicle in an accident, but i just purchased this vehicle new and it was only driven by the finance manager prior to me.

My car has been in motion at nighttime with the head lights on, while driving at 55 to 75 mph the light is spread up on my sides instead of being directly in front where the focal point is needed the most. I have taken this unit back to dealership several times and still the issue is not resolved, i am told its a problem with the design. I travel mostly on interstates and have 20/20 vision. My previous cars lights did make my path known to me, with this car, i am seeing defused light and it scares me. I've made it known to my lawyer that if i have a wreck at high speeds, then an investigation of this make and line of cars should be looked into. Am i in a car that is waiting to have an accident? Otherwise, i love this car.

When depressing the brake my car is making a clicking noise. Went to the dealer and he said it is normal. Previously it was little but now days it is making loud noise while driving. when we depress the brake and try to change the gear from p to d the gear rod is making same clicking noise. when read forums i heard that it is the problem with the solenoid but the dealer does not want to do because he has to do it for free. when asked the dealer he said that it does not come under warranty. now the noise is really loud and no one is helping me out.

On october 26th my husband was driving myself and our 2 children when all of a sudden we went from going 45 miles an hour to stopping and then even after the gas pedal was pushed all the way to the floor we we were going approx 5 miles am hour. Our engine light came on and aftet approx 5 to 10 min we found a place to pull over as there were no pulloffs readily available. Aftet we pulled off the road we shut the car off for a few minutes and restarted the car and were able to make it home . The engine ligjt was still on but power and speed were restored. We called our hyundai dealer on fri morning and they said to bring it down on monday. The car sat all weekend and was not driven due ro fear of it happening again. I did however start the car on friday and engine light was still on. We brought the car down mon at 9am. The engine light was now off but the hyundai mechanic said even if the light was off a code would still be in the system. We received a call around 3pm saying they could not find anything wrong but even they did not under why no code at all showed up. They are keeping the car until friday to keep starying and driving it to see if something happens. Mu husband did report the issue to hyundai and they said they will investigate. If this were to happen again with someone driving behind us it could be a very serious accident. Very nervous and scared something can happen especially driving my yound children around.

I purchased this auto in sept 2917 used, a few weeks later my wife was driving on a city street when the electric steering assist failed and a red steering wheel indicator appeared on the dash she managed to drive it home, when i turned the car off and restarted it everything was ok. On 11/12 2017 the same thing happened to me as i was turning onto a side street from a city street i was so surprised i didnt turn fast enough and almost hit 3 teenagers on a sidewalk. I immediately shut the car off and re started it and every thing again was ok.i am afraid there is a malfunction in the control i am sure it will happen again and the result may not be as easily solved.

Https://youtu.be/z4thv5a3lrk dynamic cruise control that stops and starts in bumper-to-bumper traffic is what sold me on this car. Lamentably, i did not know hyundai excludes aeb from hybrid ltd ultras. As the video shows, frantic beeping from the forward collision warning system was not accompanied by any braking at all. I slammed on them too late. i was in dcc mode when the warning sounded. Dcc can gradually slow from freeway speed to a stop and resume, but fcw apparently cancels dcc's braking! This must be no more than a difference in software between gas-only and hybrid ltd ultras because all sensing and control hardware are identical. hyundai's response to my inquiries are just repetitious confirmations of what i already discovered the hard and expensive way.

Got an engine light at 37k miles. Took the car to dealership initially told was vcm motor, replaced, left dealer and light came back on, told they forgot to update software after replacing vcm motor, left dealer and light came back on. Went back to dealer for third time and after they called hyundai engineering the discovered that the entire manifold needed to be replaced as it was somehow wedged into the engine. Was covered by warranty as should be. This somewhat helped my acceleration issues but was told it was a safety issues because if anything from the plastic manifold broke off in engine it would cause the rods to bend and could cause engine to seize and catch on fire.

Component Tires
These tires were purchaed on a new vehicle (factory tires) and have been rotated regularly, documentation available. The tread life/wear on the tire is premature. The vehicle has a 60,000 mile warrantly according to kumho's website. I was informed during my last tire rotation that this would be last before needing new tires. The vehicle has 37,900 miles when i was told this information on 4/2/18. The tire wear/life on these tires is evidently premature and i am requesting replacment tires or a pro-rated refund/credit.

I was driving west on a four-lane road going 40-45 mph, no one in front of me, when suddenly the automatic emergency braking system engaged on its own without any warning, stopping the car immediately and abruptly, enough so it threw articles on my front seat into the floorboard. Antilock brakes engaged at the same time shaking the car to a stop. Thankfully no one was immediately behind me and thankfully i was not on an interstate going 70 mph! Took it into the dealership that day, they kept it overnight and they could not find anything wrong. After reading that other 2016 sonatas had done the same thing, i told the dealership i did not feel safe driving the vehicle and did not want it any longer. They referred me to hyundai corporate who denied my claim because testing came up with no defect, and i assume is going to put it right back out on the streets!! I had no choice but to trade it in and get another hyundai, since i would not feel comfortable selling it outright to someone else knowing this had happened. I am very disappointed with corporate for allowing this vehicle to remain on the roads when this is obviously not the first complaint like this in the 2016s.

I went into the dealer to get an oil change on 3/14/2019. The dealer chose to do a factory recall 50hyz. Soon as i left the dealer my car started stalling on 495 north towards tyson corner in virginia, jerking and lost drivetrain power. I could get to 60mph and the car wouldn't respond after that. I took the car back to the dealer. I was told the software updated bricked my sonata. The dealer told me they will order the part and will come in 3/21/2019 which is today. Only to get a call saying the part is on back order into may. My question is why isn't holding hyundai accountable for this? My car isn't the first one to get this software update so if hyundai knows this software is going to brink peoples car how in the hell are they allowed to keep doing this recall when they have no clue when the part will be available?

There is a recall on my car for the panoramic sunroof stating that the wind deflector can detach and cause the glass panel to fall off. I have had this recall fixed 3 times already and it just happened for a 4th time. All 4 times it happened as i was driving on the highway. Luckily i was able to catch the wind deflector before if knocked the glass panel off and caused an accident. Because of this issue and hyundai's lack of ability to fix it, i do not believe my car is safe nor do i feel safe driving it. Having this happen for the fourth time is unacceptable.

It initially started around a couple of months ago. I was driving and my oil light came on. I took it to the dealership thinking it was not topped off correctly since the last oil change 2,700 miles prior to the light turning on. The dealership says "there was no oil on the dipstick." performed an oil consumption test. The most recent report showed that my "oil was 3 quarts low". The dealer advised me to trade the car in since i do not have the warranty on my car anymore to fix it. I just bought the car last april. I have maintained the car with it's recommended services and use full synthetic oil. I drive a lot of highway miles, but i take care of my car since it is an investment. I cannot afford to finance another car. Thank you.

Ii own a 2016 hyundai sonata hybrid with 34,000 miles. I have had no problems with the car until the incident that occurred on aug 5, 2018 while driving on three lane highway 99 north of modesto. at about 70mph the dashboard lite up with brake system warnings. At the same time, the engine shut down. I struggled in traffic to move to the side of the road and got to the apron and found i had no brakes but managed to stop. i turned the ignition off and visually inspected the car, especially the brakes. Seeing nothing, after a few minutes, turned it back on. The engine started but the warning lights remained on. I had brakes and slowly drove to an off ramp to get help. After getting off the highway, i stopped and again turned the ignition off. When i turned it back on, all systems were good. I drove over 100 miles home without problems. i immediately took the car to my dealer, alexander hyundai, oxnard ca. After 2 days, they found no faults but in consultation with hyundai support, decided the problem was with the hydraulic braking system and performed the hyundai recommended service. i have serious concerns about the safety of the car based on the service performed. I was not using the brakes at the time of the shutdown and wouldn’t expect it to fix itself. i would not expect the problem described to cause an engine shutdown creating a serious safety hazard. I received no assurances that it would not occur again. There should be a limited number of faults that create an immediate shutdown and the fault described should be not be one of them. the dealership claims they have done everything they can and did what hyundai technical support recommended. They provided no evidence their service revealed anything wrong with the brake system. Since they have done what the hyundai corporation prescribed, they feel no liability or concern for my safety.

Vehicle shut off while starting it finally it started up i took it to auto zone to read the code. They advised me the code p200a is very common among hyundai and it most like is the vcma that needs replacement. After doing further research there are many complaints about the vcma failing and having to be replaced. My warranty is up on my vehicle and i feel this is something that hyundai needs to address as soon as possible given this is a common issue and could cause harm to driver or others while driving that vehicle. Also when attempting to accelerate and the vehicle fails to do so there is a rattling noise when pressing the gas petal.

Hi, the sonata lim the light issue is not only terrible, but i feel extremely dangerous. We brought in the car this week for this issue and with the service team, determined that it is a problem with the limited's only. The non-limited version, if you look at the light assembly, although it looks the same, the entire bulb is encased in the metal/aluminum. When looking at the sonata limited one, you will notice that the top edge of that same housing is cut off. The dealer ordered another light assembly as they didn't have a limited in their lot, and he just called to tell me it looks identical. I will happily join any movement to get this rectified.ited

The anchor that holds the sunroof deflector in place separated where it was bonded and gets in the way when the sunroof tries to close. The deflector partially detached in the front, and interferes with the glass of the sunroof when closing. This happened while driving down the highway. I had to pull over to the side of the road and stand outside the vehicle while another person closed the sunroof. We needed two people to get the sunroof closed.

Car shakes erratically when trying to accelerate and has no power after hitting accelerator. It struggles to get any power to get going after being stopped at a red light. Gear changes get stuck and i have literally been stuck in middle of intersection while doing a legal u-turn in a busy busy la intersection with my 10yr old in the back seat and the only way to get out of the situation was to turn car off and turn on again which poses a major safety issue for both my daughter and myself. Took car in to service last week and they supposedly fixed issue but one week later here we are with same problem. Service told me it looks like solenoid is going out. Which seems strange for a 2016 car with only 27,000. So if this was the case why not change it before it was sold to me. Also car had prior issues before it was sold to me according to service. I smell recall???? I have no documentation but the dealer has all supporting paperwork.

11/4/19 i had a power steering fail. While driving i lost my power steering, power steering light came on and due to traveling in the slow lane i was able to get my car in to the emergency lane. The traction control light came on only to indicate i was hitting the emergency grooves outside the lane. I turned the car off and while in process of contacting aaa - i started the car and the power steering light was off and i was able to drive home. I took the car to tarr huyandai the next morning and there were 3 codes present. My steering angle sensor was recalibrated. My concern is what caused the fail and no one seems to have an answer. This situation created a major safety hazard had i been driving in heavy traffic and this occurred and me unable to steer the car in manual mode. I contacted huyandai and apparently this has been a problem with 2016 sonata models but my car was mfg at a plant that wasn't on recall. So at this point - the mfg plant where my vehicle was mfg apparently has the same problem with mine being the first reported. I feel totally unsafe in this car esp traveling on interstates, night time, etc since no one can answer why my power steering quit and reset when i turned the car off. This needs to be addressed before someone is killed. I was traveling on hwy 160 in morristown tn when this occurred - i am also concerned when i told tarr the power steering failed and the traction came on when hit the off road grids they listed traction control lamp was on and did not mention the power steering. That is important to remember with this case .

I was driving my 2016 hyundai sonata on the interstate at approximately 65 mph, with a semi-truck bearing down on me. As i accelerated so i could pass the car in front of me, and get out of the way of the semi-truck, my car lost all acceleration (at about 4000 rpms) and would not go at all, in fact it started slowing down. I let off the gas, because it wasn't doing any good, and as the rpms went down, to about 2000 rpms, my car slowed down to about 55mph before i could give it gas again and get it back up to the speed of all the other traffic on the interstate. There was no other warnings before this happened. It was a very scary and dangerous situation. Luckily, the semi-truck was able to slow down before it hit me. The next day the check engine light came on, so i took it to an auto parts store where it was put on a computer and it came back with the code "p200a", which is the "bank one intake manifold runner controls".  the report stated that "this has been seen before on cars like mine, and that the most likely fix was to replace the variable charge motion actuator (vcma)". i googled this issue to see if there was a recall on this part for my car and found quite a few posts and comments of this same thing happening to other people. My car has 93,000 miles on it, but in other reports i saw online, the car only had 11,000 miles on it. This needs to be recalled, it is a safety issue!

The car has been at the dealership since oct 31, 2019 with no eta of when a new transmission will be available to repair the car. At this point i can not sale the car because it needs a transmission.

Driving to airport in car. Just pulled in to freeway after stopping at store 45 mins into drive. My 3016 sonata hybrid limited started making a knocking sound. My boyfriend who is a mechanic recognized it immediatly. Then suddenly engine made loud noise and parts and oil flew all over behind us from underneath car. He managed to get it off road without us getting hit.waited 4 hours for tow that was covered by warranties i purchased. Hyundai tried to state that only 2 people could ride in tow truck. So one person (there were 2 adults and a child) would have to wait in middle of nowhere while other 2 went the hour back home with tow truck and then came the hour back. There wasn't a gas station or anything around. The car is in shop waiting to see what warranty says about it needing a new engine. All maintenance was done and was in hyundai shop 5 weeks prior with abs unit needing replaced. There was no warning light or engine light that alerted us to a possible issue.

Used car with 86,000 miles on it. On the 90th after buying car from used car dealership, a rattling noise became apparent. When i took the car to a mechanic, it was determined the engine was blown. They said that it was seized and if i had been on the freeway, it could’ve been catastrophic. After some research, i found a proposal for the settlement of a class action lawsuit including many hyundai and kia cars. The settlement included all hyundai sonata vehicles years 2011-2018 and some 2019 vehicles. My car is clearly one of the cars affected. I am seeking help from the nhtsa so that hyundai can take responsibility for their careless mistakes that have already resulted in many accidents and car fires. A hyundai dealership will be looking at my car on january, 6th 2020. I’m anticipating them trying to brush this under the rug and blaming the issues on me despite having the car for only 90 days after purchase along with the abundant knowledge of hyundai and kia knowingly using faulty engines. I need your help to ensure they fix their mistakes at no cost to me and other owners. These mistakes need to be resolved swiftly so that no more consumers suffer unnecessary harm and financial burden for the mistakes hyundai and kia knowingly made.

I stopped for gas and when i attempted to start car an alert came across my screen saying car has a hev issue and check engine light. I would have to wait for 15 to 20 minutes for my car to start again. I was assuming it was bad gas but mechanic confirmed that it wasn't a bad gas issue. I went to the dealership and they said it's a potential electric issue that my warranty does not cover. I had yet even exceed mileage above 70000 miles. I believe this is an issue that is an inconvenience to me and other drivers because it is starting to happen more frequently. This could be a father for anyone in a urgent situation and need to be able to activate the car to leave immediately. Thank you for your consideration.

I was driving on the street when i made it to a very busy intersection i proceeded to make a left turn and the power steering went out. I was almost hit by 3 cars trying to get out of the way. Prior to that my wife made the comment that it had happened to her and she had to get help to get out of the middle of the intersection because the steering was to hard for her to turn it alone. This is a very very dangerous issue. I see that there was a recall on the 2010 and 2011 models the problem still persists in later models. They're an great amount of people online that have reported the same issue.

The drivers side seatbelt doesn't retract on it's own/spring is too weak, you have to feed it back in which is a pain. Most importantly it presents a safety hazard if your car gets trapped underwater or it's on fire, the very long & basically loose belt could tangle you up leaving you trapped in the vehicle to die a slow death. Ofcourse if there is a fire you do stand a chance the fire will burn through the belt before you're completely dead.

After a period of driving, which is random at best, the check engine light will appear and the vehicle will start to shudder and lose its ability to accelerate. This happens when the vehicle is in motion and happens both on the freeway at high speeds, as well as on city streets in low speeds. The only way to get this to stop is try and get to a safe space of the road and turn off the vehicle. It is very scary and dangerous especially in southern california freeway traffic and in mountain passes as you lose the ability to maintain speed in the middle of traffic. This could very easily cause an accident. This has happened to me on 7 different occasions over the past 2 months at random times.

I was driving my vehicle on the highway when it started knocking and would not accelerate above 55mph. I drove straight to the dealership, where i found out the car had ran out of oil. I drive the vehicle for work and it has regular oil changes and maintenance. However, when the vehicle ran out of oil, it did not notify that there were any issues with the engine or oil level. The cars “check engine” light did not indicate the engine was having issues, after the knocking started. Nor did it indicate it was low or out of oil. The car just worked one day and did not the next. The dealership and manufacturer assumed some liability, but not all. The vehicle should have notified the driver, that it was low on oil. It’s extremely unsafe for a vehicle to run out of oil during operation. I also subscribe to a remote vehicle monitoring system and i pay monthly to the manufacturer. That system also did not know that the vehicle was low or out of oil. It did not indicate any issues until the shop repairs the engine. *tr

On friday night, october 23, 2020, i was driving east on e. Main street in mesa, az headed to the red mountain 202 freeway. The light was green as i approached the intersection and i made a right turn onto the freeway frontage road to head southbound. I was driving approximately 25 mph as my car’s steering became rigid and felt like my power steering had gone out. I could barely complete the right turn causing my car to careen into the concrete side barrier causing damage to the front driver’s side of the vehicle. Many of the dashboard lights were on with many different alerts as i pulled over with my passenger. We pulled over immediately after the collision to assess the damages and our well being for a few minutes. I then proceeded to drive to my place of work a few miles away and park the car so i could contact the dealership who had worked on my car three days prior. The next morning, october 24, 2020, i called the horne hyundai dealership and left a message at the switchboard for a service manager to call me. I informed her that i had been involved in an accident. On monday morning, october 26, 2020 i drove the car to the dealership to be inspected. On wednesday, october 28, 2020, i was informed by matt colton, service manager from horne hyundai, that it was not their issue and that i “needed to turn it into my insurance.” as a result, i have not driven my unrepaired car, it is securely parked at my place of employment as to preserve it for inspection.

At the present time i add 1 quart for after 400 miles of driving. If i put in high text gas the rattling doesn't happen as often but this engine doesn't require high test gas. Regardless i'm still consuming much to much oil. I read that others have had engines seizing and some daught on fire. This seems to be a real danger and i feel its a problem that should be resolved by hyundai.

My right high beam stopped working, i have to add oil to my car every 3 days. Burns more gas going back and forth to work. Going around a fast highway curb, the engine shut down the speed of my car and would not stop dropping down to 45 mph in a 70mph packed highway. Awful experience. Called in the problem to hyundai and they didn't show any care. I had an accident happen and i don't know if the electrical problem could be a result to the accidents. The case has been closed and nothing but a paper from a lawyer about getting $1000 for my car being at high risk. I have the case number available. It's been nearly a year.

My car started knocking as i drove and knowing an oil change was needed soon, i went to get an oil change and was told there was barely any oil left. Performed the oil change and on the drive home on the highway my was still knocking then lost power as i drove. My car was incredibly loud, jerking as it drove, and wouldn't pass 30 mph. I was able to bring it back home though. Next day had the same guys check the car and they told me the head gasket blew. They also attempted another oil change but they said the damage was done and my car was not drivable. Insurance and the people i purchased the car from could not help stating it was normal wear and tear. I've only h0ad the car for about a year though.

During long distance driving once the vehicle is stopped for gas the hev warning light comes on. The car will not re-start for 15 -30 minutes. Once restarted the check engine light comes on. This has happend 3 times. The first two the thought was a long distance drive in the heat of summer. This last time it was fall/winter so the hypothsis of summer heat was thrown out the window. The most recent time the gas mileage went down drastically and the voltage for the electric system was acting erratically. The check engine light was on for 2 days but the car was only driven to the dealer. The dealer quickly found the problem and repaired under warranty "open recall". The car has not been driven any long distances since. The diagnosis was "main relay/power relay/cable (20-01-003h) caused by t4m. Power relay module melted at relay" installed 37583-a8000-qqh: relay-high voltage main, 37514-g0000-qqh: relay assy-power, replaced power relay assy module per campaign "warranty" hope this information helps others....hope this is truly the fix as it is an "open recall" that should be a recall". Glad this did not cause a fire.

At about 58k miles i started to notice when i turned the turn signal to indicate a left turn the right blinker would come on and then after a moment switch to the left or not switch at all. This was totally random. I tried to capture it on camera to show my local dealer before the 60k warranty ran out but i could never capture it because it was so random and they could not replicate it. Over the last year the issue has gotten worse where nearly every time i use the left turn signal the right signal will turn on instead. The last time my car was in for service i mentioned it again and told them i think they can replicate the issue because it happens nearly every time now. When i indicate a left signal and the right signal comes on other cars think i am merging into them while my signal is stuck. The signal stock seems to have an electrical issue sending the correct signal to the lights. This is a clear safety issue and i hope it does not cause accidents as the signals become stuck. This occurs regardless of vehicle speed.

Fortunately, no other cars around, i put gear in reverse to back up before hitting ditch on other side of road. I turned off car, restarted and wheel worked. Stopped on major highway to turn at light, happened again. Manage to get car to pohanka hyundai svc dept.. Next day, was told it was a sensor. Car drove ok for a couple of days and then happened again, two different times. Waited until after christmas to call pohanka but decided to research recalls on this model. Dec 30th, stopped to turn left onto street, steering locked up, almost went in ditch crossing over 2 lanes. Cut off engine with key, restarted car, backed up and managed to get off road to keep from being hit by oncoming vehicles. Researched to find many complaints with steering since 2017! This is dangerous and want hyundai accountable. I want to know what the problem is and if it can be fixed or if car needs to be replaced.

Component Electrical system
While driving, the check hybrid system warning light came on. This began in september 2020. I would pull over and turn the ignition off then restart the vehicle and it would be fine and light would be off. This happened a few times and then on a long distance trip i shit it off and it took about15-20 minutes to restart. The dealership said it was the relay assembly and that it was a recall. It had completely melted the casing around my battery. They replaced it for free in october. Now in january it has started the same thing. I will never get another hyundai. This car has had more problems than my 2000 honda accord that has 300,000 miles on it. And my hyundai only has 84,000.

Component Engine
Mileage approx 68,000 with regular oil changes, the engine made loud clanking sounds upon startup. Car was towed to dealer where diagnosis was catastrophic engine failure due to connecting rod bearings wearing prematurely despite sufficient oil in reservoir. Car has been at van nuys, ca hundyai dealer since early november 2020. In early december, hundyai posted a recall 198 which specified connecting rod bearing wearing prematurely on their "safety recalls and service campaigns" website page. However, my vin number references no recalls. Meanwhile, the long block engine in my model is no longer available or manufactured. A short block would have to be adapted. Hundyai offered a 75% of repair "good will" payment, but that was before their admission of problems with the connecting rods. I notice on your site that others have the same problem. I've had to rent a car for twelve weeks with no end in sight. The dealership would charge me at least $1600 as my 25% of the repair. Hundyai should pay 100% and reimburse me my car rental expenses. I still have no idea when the car will be repaired. It is sitting at the dealer.

Car engine will rev up at low speeds (30 miles and under) and get stuck. I have to press the brake and hold it down, put the car in park and hit gas pedal to get it to go into lower gear. Has happened several times. I have told the hyundai service dept about it a few times but they cannot repair it because they cannot simulate it happening. First happened approx. 2 years ago; did not happen again for several months. But now it is happening more often. 4 times in the last month. Most recent time was 1/11/21.

I’ve had issues with the paint. I had a huge chip in the paint and the body shop told me that it was an issue with the factory paint. So now for the 3rd time, i am having to have the paint fixed on the top of my car. Tiny chips in the paint have very quickly turned in to much larger areas. Nothing hit or damaged the area any of the times to my knowledge. The first time was february 2019, touch up in march 2020, and now october 2020.

On a dark or dimly lit road the low beam headlights create a sharp boundary looking through the windshield with headlight illumination on the lower area and darkness on two thirds down from the top of the viewing area. It is as if the windshield has a line horizontally across it two thirds down in the field of view. The line bounces when the car bounces and dark upper portion can not be properly viewed through to see the road ahead. It is a safety issue due to poor visibility. The dealer has said a few times there is no issue and no reported issue. This is a continuous flaw in the car from when we first purchased in nov 2015.

11/18/2016 - i backed out of my driveway and was slowly accelerating up my rural street when the car suddenly brake hard of its own accord and made a clunking noise. No instrument panel indication was provided as to why this occurred. This was not driver error as my foot was still on the accelerator. I was driving straight ahead - not turning - no other cars were in the vicinity. 11/21/16 - while driving, the car drove sluggishly (almost like the parking brake was on). When i pulled into my driveway, i again heard a clunking sound. When i opened my door there was a pronounced burning smell and the rear wheels were too hot to touch. Again, there were no instrument panel lights to indicate any issue. The car has been operating normally since these incidents. I have been unable to replicate these issues. This car has had a series of unexplained electrical issues. The cause of the problems described is unknown. My wife and i found these events frightening and a safety issue in a car with less than 5,000 miles and less than 3 months old. *tr

Safety issue: on sunday, dec 4, 2016 at 4:45pm while driving on expressway in chicago, illinois, i -55 south, near kedzie, our 5yr old child, who was in the backseat on passenger side, in her car booster seat reported that the car seat was around her neck. She was in the rear with another child. I, [xxx], unbuckled my seat beat and turned around to find that the car seat was tightened around her neck completely unable to loosen with little room for her to breath. I placed my two fingers, b/t her neck and seatbelt. My husband, pulled to the side of the road. He placed his two fingers between her neck and seat belt. Anytime we touched the seat belt it retracted tighter, we had to instruct my daughter to not moved and continued to secure her airway and did not touch the seatbelt. I called 911 and immediately began to flag people on the expressway down to help. We asked if he had scissors or knife to cut the seat belt off. The passerby/motorist in a white ford pick-up, had a sporting knife and on first try could not cut the seatbelt off. On the second try he was able to cut the seat belt off. The seat belt was found to be unbuckled. My daughter said she did not unbuckle the seat belt and didn't know it was doing that. She stated her dress was underneath the bottom of seatbelt. The seat belt was found to be around her neck in the fashion of the cancer ribbon sign. car was new with 4500 miles on it.

Back to dealer and they said again it was repaired. Car had 10,000 miles on it at the time. Less than 3,000 miles later, it happened again - car completely shut off on the highway. Complete loss of power. Dealer claimed it was the same problem and "fixed" it with a software update. Now scared to drive it - considering lemon law?

I am starting to have issues with my car burning oil with no leaks. I haven’t even been a month (1,000) miles and my car literally had no oil. I only have 60,000 mile on the car. The engine at times has shook with the check engine light one but i had turned off the car and started it back up and it stopped. It only happens on occasion but now i’m burning and after reading these comments i see it is an overall issue with multiple cars. A recall should be put in effect as it’s the same issue.

Numerous posts and this has occurred to me numerous times within the past 2 months. After driving vehicle on the freeway, and getting off to get gas or stop to get groceries or anything, when the vehicle is turned off, check hybrid system light comes on and vehicle is disabled. Will not start or attempt to start for at least 20 minutes. When vehicle starts back up the check engine light comes on and stays on until the vehicle is turned off again then the cel goes away. Sounds like numerous people are having this issue, i however have been lucky that it hasn't shut off while driving on the freeway, sounds like many other people it has. There needs to be a recall or the car be labeled as lemon or something.

Hello i purchased a 2016 hyundai sonata 4/8/2020 with 110,743 miles on it with now 116,000. About a month ago my check engine light came on with no symptoms to the naked eye . Maybe a week later i could feel the difference in the speed control the air intake seemed very sluggish it won’t take off from the line it will drag before it decides to pick up speed . Now the issue is that this is a common problem with these specific cars with no recall on them. This is an expensive fix that i should not be responsible for. Code p200 intake manifold .. It’s not safe to drive a vehicle that you cannot control its initial speed ...

Vehicle has persistent issue with hybrid system. Check engine light will come on, and after some period of time, error message "check hybrid system. Turn off engine." will appear. Car then loses power from combustion engine, and can only operate on electric. Requires pulling the car over, turning the car off, then turning the car back on, which will allow power to the combustion engine to be temporarily restored, but the check engine light will remain on. The car is unsafe to drive in this state until looked at by the dealer. The diagnostic code is p2600. this vehicle has been taken in for service by the same dealer for the same issue four times, and is now scheduled for a fifth. The dealer has been able to fix the issue three times for a period of about 7-12 months after replacing the water pump, but issue continues to recur.

I was on the highway driving and as i begin to accelerate the car felt as if it was about to stall out. When i came to a stop sign and made a complete stop as i accelerated to drive the car did the same thing as if it wanted to stall out. Now when i'm driving i can't go over 60 mph and any time i come to a complete stop and try to accelerate the car acts as if it wants to stall out so i have to take off slowly then take my foot off the gas pedal and put it back on as if is having trouble getting gas to the engine. I took it to my mechanic and it read code p 1326. Now my car is in safety mode

Without clear cause this rental car's power steering stopped working while driving at slow to moderate speeds- the first time we were in a parking lot so able to pull into a safe place after a tow company checked it out and it seemed to have spontaneously resolved we tried to drive it a short distance at slow speeds and the dashboard started to flash on and off and the power steering cut again.

Every time i release the brake pedal after sitting at a long red light the car shakes and shudders, sometimes really hard, and sounds like it’s choking for a few moments before i am able to accelerate. It sounds and feels and acts as though it is going to stall but it has not yet. The effect does *not* happen when the air conditioner or the vent are being used; only when those are off. It varies from mild to really strong. it took multiple trips to the dealer for them to determine that it is normal not just for my car but for all 2016 sonatas. It is a feature where the transmission shifts into neutral at long stops then re-engages in drive when the foot is lifted from the brake pedal. The purpose is said to reduce engine load. i think this is a safety concern is because when a driver removes their foot from the brake and the car’s brake lights go off, it is a signal to the car behind them that they are about to go. But the wait time required for the shaking and sputtering to stop before the gas pedal will work results in “mixed messages” to the driver behind, thinking that you are ready to move forward but you’re not really ready yet, and may result in a rear-end collision. *detailed time line attached *official communication from corporate attached.

Driving at highway speeds once the engine is at full operating temperature there is a harsh surge during down shifting at 35 mph ( almost as if i were down shifting a manual transmission or hitting the brakes) this causes the vehicle to slow much more rapidly than expected causing my head and body to move forward in the car. It is extremely distracting and i am nervous it will cause an accident.

While the vehicle is in motion and when i hit the brake. A click noise is always coming when we hit the brake till the end. Always happening observing from past 2 months. the other problem is when we hit the brake and and hold the shift knob it is making tick tick noise. Always happens when i showed to the mechanic they are saying it is normal because they have to do it for free of charge. Hyundai gives warranty but the dealers neglect to do. i am getting a mileage of average 10 miles if i even maintain a speed of 45-50 mph. if i put 14 gallons of gas i get hardly 225 miles and i have no problems with the car and i change the oil before the service interval.

Dual air conditioning does not operate correctly. Dealers explanation is that is was designed that way and since "it is operating as designed", there is nothing they can do. I filed a formal complaint with hyundai and have asked them to verify that this "design" will not create a fire or electrical shortage. Hyundai consumer affairs case#: 10086770 (3/24/17). After several unsatisfactory conversations, i was given a supervisor named ally. Ally was polite and assured me he wanted to get some resolution. He called back once to assure me he was still checking into it. On april 21, 2017, i received a call from a female who identified herself as ally from hyundai. I said that was strange, i have been talking to a male named ally. She said, "i told them this wasn't going to work." i asked her to have the real ally call me on april 24. I never heard back so i followed up tuesday with an email, but still have heard nothing. I just want some verification that there is no way this design flaw will cause a fire or any other problem. I want to know how long the warranty will stay in place since i have reported this problem.

We were driving along at 70 mph and suddenly the engine stalled and electrical gauges all turned off for 15 seconds, meaning all gauges went to the left like when you turn your car off. Dealer said that they found nothing wrong. They said to let them know if it happens again????????????? . I told them that how could we let them know if we are both dead.

While driving i notice that the steering wheel seems to stick slightly so that you have to turn the wheel either left or right slightly then it resumes steering properly for few seconds then it sticks again. It doesn't do it all the time but when it does it makes me think that the steering wheel is getting ready to lock up. I notice this mostly on highways and it really wears you out trying to drive and worrying that the steering might lock up. This happens a lot.

While driving, my engine light came on and i got an alert that there was an issue with the engine control module. I made an appointment asap but continued to drive the car until my appointment in 4 days. Later on that day, i was i fully stopped iat a flashing yellow light, then attempted to cross over a lane of traffic. The car moved but would not accelerate past 12 mph - almost causing me to be hit by oncoming traffic. I had to turn my hazard lights on and coast until i could pull over. I called hyundai and they expedited my appointment but claimed there are no active recalls. However the technician said that there is a "campaign" and that he replaced the part. Their website says this: sonata 2.4l ecm update & vcm (16-01-064) i almost got hit by oncoming traffic because of this ecm issue and i think that hyundai is putting people in danger by downplaying the seriousness of this issue. It should be a recall - not a "campaign" and they should be required to notify car owners to get this issue resolved asap. It could be a matter of life and death.

As i am riding along at a steady rate, all of a sudden the car will slow down. Sometimes it slows 5-10 mph and starts to accelerate. At other times, it will slow to a complete stop. Before going on vacation, i took it to pantili hyundai in princeton, wv and they did a computer update and told me it was fine. I drove to memphis, tennessee and it started doing it again. On my way home, we stopped in chattanooga for lunch. When crossing a busy intersection, it nearly stopped. A gas truck was approaching as we barely made it across to our side of the highway. Fortunately, there was shoulder room to move to until it decided to go again.

Today june 28 2016 i started my vehicle and noticed it was running a little harder making an unusual sound as i engaged the reverse the vehicle started rolling back slowly and checking like it was going to stall and stop. It all sounds like the vehicle has misfired and is running rough. I immediately stopped the engine and started one more time and this time the vehicle started immediately. This same issue has happened about a month ago as i was living the library.

Around 10pm i was driving with one passenger straight down a local suburban street. There were no other cars nearby on the road nor were there any pedestrians in the vicinity. Abruptly, without any warning, the car gave off a beep and brought itself to an immediate stop in the middle of the road without any interaction from me at all. The road in front of the car was clear and following the stop no warnings were displayed on the dashboard indicating a reason for it or a malfunction in any of the systems. My passenger and i were extremely fortunate that there was not a car coming up behind us because this immediate unintended stop for no reason would very likely have caused an accident. *tr

I have a 2016 hyundai sonata limited with the ultimate package that has forward collision protection which is a wonderful thing if you are about to hit a concrete wall. However if you are flowing with traffic and have to slam on your breaks because the car in front of you does and then they start to go again, the sonata thinks you are coming to a wall and sends you to a complete stop. This causes problems with the traffic behind you. I have almost been rear ended twice. I now disable it because i drive the dc beltway where people constantly slam their brakes. It's a great concept but definitely needs a lot of work before it is safe on our busy roads
