ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

4/28/2015 - PORTSMOUTH, VA
THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON WITH OTHER ELANTRA DRIVERS. THERE ARE VIDEOS ON YOU TUBE WITH THIS ISSUE. THE VEHICLE DOESN'T START AT TIMES AND IT SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS ISSUE. THIS IS A NEW CAR AND SHOULD HAVE ISSUES LIKE THAT. IT SEEMS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH THE STARTER OR THE IGNITION SWITCH.

THE CAR WON'T START. THIS IS A PUSH BUTTON START. I THOUGHT PERHAPS THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE KEY THAT HAS TO BE IN THE CAR AT THE TIME OF STARTING THE CAR. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME THIS IS HAPPENED IN THREE WEEKS. THEN I WENT ONLINE AND FOUND OUT THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF OTHER OWNERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. I CALLED AN ONLINE NUMBER AND FOUND OUT THAT THE MANUFACTURE IS AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM. THEY ARE NOT ISSUING A RECALL BUT THEY CALL THIS A CAMPAIGN AND HAVE A NUMBER FOR THIS PROBLEM WHICH IS 933. THEY WILL NOT PAY FOR A RENTAL CAR, BUT THEY WILL PAY FOR THE REPAIR. THEN I CALLED A DEALER AND THEY SAID THEY DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM BUT TO BRING THE CAR IN. I FEEL THIS IS ALL HUSH-HUSH, TO THE DISADVANTAGE OF THE OWNER, WHO COULD FIND THEMSELVES IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION IF ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE CAR WILL START. PLEASE INVESTIGATE, INCLUDING AN ONLINE SEARCH, TO DETERMINE IF A NATIONWIDE MANDATORY RECALL SHOULD BE INITIATED.

PERIODICALLY MY CAR WILL NOT START OR TURN OVER TO START. THE NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR PARTS ARE YOUNG AND A COUPLE FORUMS I HAVE FOUND ON THE INTERNET SHOW THAT OTHER PEOPLE WITH SIMILAR MODEL YEARS AND THE SAME YEAR ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS ISSUE. IT WAS REPORTED IT MIGHT BE THE RANGE SWITCH OR THE SHIFT INTERLOCK. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONCERN. WHEN I CALLED INTO MY LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP THEY SOUNDED PERPLEXED.

ENGINE

4/7/2015 - FAIRBANKS, AK
AFTER PURCHASING THE CAR NEW WITH ALL OF 31 MILES ON IT I NOTICED ON MY 350 MILE DRIVE HOME FROM ANCHORAGE TO FAIRBANKS ALASKA THAT THE REAR END OF THE CAR WOULD SKIP AROUND UNPREDICTABLY WHEN HITTING A BUMP OR WHEN I HIT AN ICY PATCH OF ROAD (AND AS A RESULT OF THE SKIPPING AROUND, THE REAR TIRES WEAR/CUP RIDICULOUSLY FAST, WHICH MAY ALSO BE DANGEROUS BUT IS MOSTLY ANNOYING AND EXPENSIVE). DESPITE A FEW ATTEMPTS BY THE DEALER AT REPAIRING THE STEERING COLUMN IT STILL DOES IT, 30K MILES LATER. AS FAR AS SPEED, IT HAPPENS AT ANY SPEED ABOVE ABOUT 35 MPH . IT IS BAD ENOUGH IN THE SUMMER TO FEEL LIKE THE REAR END IS LEAVING THE ROAD, BUT IT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS IN THE WINTER WHEN TRACTION IS ALREADY TENUOUS AT BEST. SOONER OR LATER THIS IS GOING TO KILL SOMEONE IF IT HASN'T ALREADY.
