ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

7/27/2017 - TAMPA, FL
THE CAR IS NOT COVERED ON THE CAMPAIGN #146 EVEN THOUGH THE VEHICLE'S MAKE, MODEL & YEAR WERE CORRESPONDING TO THE RECALL. THEY NEED TO WIDEN THE VIN NUMBERS EFFECTED AS MY VEHICLE WAS EFFECTED BY THIS SAME ISSUE. THE BREAK STOPPER BROKE INTO MANY PIECES ALL OVER MY FLOORBOARDS AND MY BREAK LIGHT WAS CONTINUOUSLY ON. IT THEN KILLED MY CAR BATTERY BY USING THE BATTERY TO POWER THE BREAK LIGHTS WITH THE CAR OFF AND KEYS OUT THE CAR. IT WONT SHOW IF YOU ARE PRESSING THE BREAKS AND IT MAKES IT DANGEROUS TO DRIVE AS DRIVERS BEHIND YOU WILL NOT KNOW IF YOU ARE HITTING THE BREAKS. PLEASE ADVISE THEM TO BROADEN THE RECALL #146 AS THIS AFFECTS MANY DRIVERS.

CAR STUTTERS, RPMS DROP, AND CAR STALLS WHEN IT COMES TO A COMPLETE STOP AT STOP SIGN OR TRAFFIC LIGHT. THIS HAPPENS WHEN DRIVING WITHOUT WARNING IN ALL CONDITIONS-- HOT/COLD, MORNING/EVENING, ETC. FOLLOWING THIS, CAR WILL BE DIFFICULT TO RESTART AND SLOW TO ACCELERATE; THEN RPMS RAISE TO 5 AND CAR GOES INTO GEAR. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING SINCE APRIL 2017 AND HAS BEEN TO THE DEALER 3 TIMES. (4TH TIME TOMORROW)

AIR BAGS

7/18/2017 - CORAL SPRINGS, FL
THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT CAME ON ON MY DASHBOARD A FEW DAYS AGO AND HAS BEEN ON EVER SINCE. I HAVE READ ON SEVERAL ONLINE FORUMS HOW SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HAVING THE SAME ISSUE AND HOW THIS MEANS THAT THE AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY DURING A COLLISION. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND THE DEALERSHIPS SHOULD BE CHARGING OVER $250 TO CORRECT THIS DEFECT. I HAVE NOT YET BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT, BUT I DON'T WANT TO WAIT UNTIL THEN FOR SOMEONE TO TAKE ACTION. THANK YOU.

"TAKATA RECALL" MY HUSBAND, DAUGHTER, AND I WERE IN AN ACCIDENT WITH A DRIVER OF A MINI VAN WHO BLEW A STOP SIGN ON A CITY STREET. THE DRIVER OF THE VAN WAS TICKETED. THE VAN'S AIRBAGS WENT OFF AS THE PHOTO SHOWS. OUR 2013 ELANTRA AIR BAGS DID NOT AS THE PHOTOS SHOW. I WAS IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. ALL OF US HAD SEATBEALTS ON BUT I SUFFERED BLUNT CHEST TRAUMA AND A CONCUSSION. THE VEHICLE AIRBAG BOOK SAYS THEIR IS A SENSOR IN THE FRONT CENTER OF THE CAR THAT DETECTS 30 DEGREES EITHER WAY. LOOK AT THE PHOTOS - FAILED TO DETECT AND DEPLOY IN OUR CASE.

POWER TRAIN

6/30/2017 - VIRGINIA BEACH, VA
TRANSMISSION FEELS LIKE IT IS SLIPPING. DIFFICULT SHIFTING FROM PARK TO DRIVE OR REVERSE. THE CAR JERKS AND LURCHED WHEN IN GEAR AND DRIVING WHETHER SPEEDING UP OR D LOSING DOWN. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT HAD NOT TURNED ON INDICATING A PROBLEM. THE DEALERSHIP RECALIBRATED THE TRANSMISSION LAST WEEK AND THE CAR WAS RETURNED TO THE SHOP WITHIN 24 HOURS WITH THE SAME ISSUE MAGNIFIED. THE DEALERSHIP NOW SAYS THEY CANNOT DUPLICATE THE ISSUE. WHEN THE ISSUE FIRST PRESENTED I WAS IN MOTION ON A BUSY CITY STREET. PREVIOUSLY THE CAR HAD A FAULTY RANGE SWITCH THAT WAS INTERMITTENT AND TOOK 6 MONTHS TO DUPLICATE FOR THE DEALERSHIP. THEIR INITIAL FIX WAS TO ADJUST THE SWITCH, A YEAR LATER THE ISSUE RETURNED AND THEY REPLACED THE SWITCH AT THAT TIME. WONDERING IF THE TWO ISSUES ARE RELATED.
