SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

9/4/2013 - PANAMA, AA
FIRST OF ALL I KNOW OUR 2011 HYUNDAI SANTA FE IS NOT MADE IN USA, IT IS A KOREAN 2.4 L, 7 SEATER BOUGHT IN PANAMA. I WROTE TO THE HYUNDAI COMPLAINT WEBSITE AND THEY VERY POLITELY ANSWERED THAT THE CAR WAS A NON-US MODEL AND THEY SENT ME A LINK TO A WEBSITE WHERE I COULD FILE THE COMPLAINT. I DID IT BUT I HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN ANSWER, YET. MY FIRST PROBLEM AFTER THE CRASH WAS THE UNAVAILABILITY OF PARTS FOR REPAIRING THE CAR. I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH OUR LOCAL CONSUMER AUTHORITY HERE IN PANAMA. OUR CAR WAS IN THE SHOP FOR MORE THAN 9 MONTHS, ITS RUNNING NOW BUT STILL SOME PARTS MISSING. THE ISSUE IS THAT AFTER GETTING THE CAR BACK FROM THE SHOP I RECEIVED A CALL FROM OUR LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALER (PETROAUTOS) TELLING ME ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN OF THE FAULTY BRAKE SWITCH (JUST AS IN THE US MODELS) AND THAT I HAD TO TAKE THE CAR TO THE DEALER. SO I LOOKED UP IN INTERNET AND I FIND SEVERAL RECALLS RELATED TO THE BRAKES. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER AND THEY CHANGED THE SWITCH. SO I¦M WONDERING IF THIS WAS RELATED TO THE CRASH BECAUSE I ALWAYS HAD MY DOUBTS OF WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I BRAKED THAT DAY. FINALLY THERE WAS A CRASH AND ALTHOUGH I KNOW THIS MAY ONLY BE FOR YOUR INFORMATION OR FILES, AND THAT YOU CAN'T HELP ME; PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT FOR YOUR EVALUATIONS. THANKS.

VISIBILITY: REARVIEW MIRRORS/DEVICES

8/14/2013 - SAN CARLOS, CA
MY DAUGHTERS AND I PULLED INTO OUR DRIVEWAY, PARKED THE CAR AND TURNED OFF THE ENGINE. BEFORE GETTING OUT, THE REAR VIEW MIRROR FELL OFF AND TOOK A CHUNK OF GLASS FROM THE WINDSHIELD. MY CAR STILL HAS MANUFACTURE WARRANTY, SO I MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR MONDAY JULY 29. I WENT TO BURLINGAME HYUNDAI WHERE THE SERVICE MANAGER SAID "NO WAY DID THAT MIRROR FALL OFF. HYUNDAI WON'T COVER IT." I THEN CALLED HYUNDAI CORPORATE WHO SAID IT'S UP TO THE SERVICE PERSONNEL TO DECIDE IF THE WARRANTY COVERS THE WORK. THEY SUGGESTED I TAKE THE CAR TO ANOTHER DEALERSHIP. I WENT TO SERRAMONTE HYUNDAI AND THEY SAID THAT MY MIRROR WAS NOT ORIGINAL MANUFACTURE INSTALLED MIRROR AND WOULD NOT COVER THE COST TO REPLACE THE GLASS.I THEN WENT BACK TO ENTERPRISE CAR SALES WHERE I BOUGHT THE CAR AND THEY DETERMINED IN THEIR RECORDS THAT THE MIRROR WAS ORIGINAL AND NOT REPLACED. ENTERPRISE TALKED TO SERRAMONTE HYUNDAI ABOUT WARRANTY REPLACEMENT, HOWEVER THEY ALSO SAID "THE MIRROR CAME OFF WITH A FORCEFUL PULL." I AM COMPLAINING THAT THE GLASS AND OR GLUE USED ON THE REAR VIEW MIRROR CAUSED THE MIRROR TO FALL OFF AND DAMAGE THE WINDSHIELD. I BELIEVE THE HYUNDAI WARRANTY SHOULD REPLACE IT. I DID NOT PULL IN ANY FASHION ON THE MIRROR. I HAVE READ VIA GOOGLE SEARCH THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER PEOPLE IN VARIOUS CAR MAKES. THIS OCCURRENCE IS NOT THE FIRST TIME A MIRROR HAS FALLEN OFF THE GLASS LEFT A CHUNK OF GLASS MISSING. IT IS MOST LIKELY A GLASS MANUFACTURE DEFECT. PLEASE HELP MAKE HYUNDAI HONOR THEIR WARRANTY.

ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

7/17/2013 - MISSION VIEJO, CA
TWICE, THE ENGINE HAS SHUT OFF, WHILE TRYING TO ACCELERATE FROM AN IDLE OR STOPPED POSITION. LUCKILY, BOTH INCIDENTS WERE IN AN EMPTY PARKING LOT. THE ENGINE SIMPLY STOPPED RUNNING AND I HAD TO PUT IT INTO PARKING GEAR, AND RESTART THE ENGINE.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

6/24/2013 - FOREST HILL, MD
ON JUNE 11, 2013 I WAS DRIVING MY 2011 HYUNDAI SANTA FE. I WAS IN A PARKING LOT AND HAD PULLED INTO A PARKING PLACE. I WAS STOPPED AND PUTTING MY CAR INTO PARK. AS I REACH NEUTRAL MY CAR ACCELERATED FAST...THIS WAS MORE THEN A LUNGE FORWARD, IT WAS MORE LIKE A POWER SURGE. MY CAR CONTINUED FORWARD AT A VERY FAST SPEED, DESPITE MY BRAKING ( THERE WERE SKID MARKS) AND HIT A WALL. I ENDED UP WITH LOTS OF MASSIVE BRUISING AND SPRAINED MUSCLES. PLUS I WAS VERY FRIGHTENED. THERE WAS LOTS OF DAMAGE TO MY CAR. IT WAS TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP, WHERE I PURCHASED IT. IT IS SILL IN THEIR BODY SHOP. A FEW DAYS AFTER THE ACCIDENT I CHECKED THE INTERNET TO SEE IF ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM. THERE WERE LOTS & LOTS OF EXAMPLES OF THIS, SUDDEN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION PROBLEM, WITH THE 2011 SANTA FE. I DON'T SEE ANY RESPONSES FROM HYUNDAI. THIS PROBLEM HAS TO BE DEALT WITH.
