EXTERIOR LIGHTING

10/18/2016 - POMONA, CA
ENGINE FAILURE. ZERO COMPRESSION CYLINDER #1. SECOND TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED SINCE PURCHASE ON 10/18/2016. ALSO, TIRE PRESSURE PROBLEM, ESC LIGHT COMES ON, DASHBOARD GAUGES INOPERATIVE. FUEL MILEAGE BELOW WHAT IS ADVERTISED. NEITHER HUNDAI NOR ENTERPRISE WILL FIX THE PROBLEM AFTER REPEATED DEMANDS. ALSO, THERE IS A RECALL REGARDING "STOPPER PAD" AND STOP LAMP SWITCH. BOUGHT VEHICLE, CASH, FROM ENTERPRISE CAR SALES IN MONTCLAIR, CA. IT WAS A "CERTIFIED" USED CAR, SUPPOSEDLY. IMMEDIATELY I NOTICED THAT THE ENGINE SOUNDED "TINNY". SOUNDED LIKE A SEWING MACHINE, IT WAS KNOCKING. ALSO, WHEN I LIFTED THE OIL STICK, SMOKE CAME OUT OF ENGINE. THIS WAS WITHIN 2 WEEKS AFTER PURCHASE. THE CAR COMPLETELY LOST COMPRESSION ON INTERSTATE 10 IN APRIL, 2015. I TOLD BOTH HYUNDAI AND ENTERPRISE WHO IGNORED MY COMPLAINTS. FINALLY, AFTER SEVERAL COMPLAINTS AND THREATS, ENTERPRISE TOOK THE CAR IN AND SENT IT TO HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP WHO CLAIMED THERE WAS NO PROBLEM. THE CAR BEGAN LOSING POWER AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER, 2016 AND FINALLY STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET IN ARCADIA, CA. NO COMPRESSION. IT HAD TO BE TOWED TO MY HOUSE. I TOOK IT TO PRIVATE SHOP WHO SAID "ZERO COMPRESSION IN CYLINDER #1, POSSIBLE BURNED OUT VALVE '. SEE ATTACHED. CALLED HYINDAI AND ENTERPRISE AGAIN. BOTH DENIED RESPONSIBILITY, AND REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING. I HAVE TO NOW PAY OVER $1,000 TO GET ENGINE REBUILT. THIS CAR IS A LEMON AND I AM ENTTIED TO REFUND OR A NEW CAR.

SERVICE BRAKES

10/18/2016 - WESTERVILLE, OH
MY AIRBAG LIGHT WAS OFF AND ON FOR ABOUT A MONTH AND NOW IT IS A STEADY LIGHT. THE REPAIR SHOP I TOOK IT TO SAID I NEEDED A CLOCK SPRING AND A NEW DRIVER AIR BAG. THEY ALSO SAID I MIGHT NEED ANOTHER PART. TOTAL COST OF ALL OF THIS WILL BE AROUND $1600. SINCE MY CAR HAS OVER 100,000 MILES, IT IS NOT UNDER WARRANTY. I'VE NOTICED OTHER PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE AIRBAG LIGHT.
