ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

5/15/2015 - DES PLAINES, IL
RECALL PLEASE !! I SPENT MY LIFE SAVINGS ON THIS CAR AND IT IS DANGEROUS TO DRIVE. THE CAR FISH TAILS OVER SMALL BUMPS AND AT LOW SPEEDS. IN WINTER DRIVING ITS ALMOST OUT OF CONTROL AND A SEPARATE SET OF SNOW TIRES IS MANDATORY SO YOU DON'T GET KILLED. WHEN IT CROSSES RAILROAD TRACKS IT ACTUALLY TENDS TO TURN ON ITS OWN ONTO THE DIRECTION OF THE TRACKS ! IF YOU HIT A DIP IN THE ROAD THE CAR SEEMS TO LOSE CONTROL. AND AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS FORGET IT - IT SWAYS ACROSS THE LANES ON ITS OWN AS IF IT IS CONSTANTLY CATCHING THE WIND. I CANNOT DRIVE IT ON THE HIGHWAY - I AM WHITE KNUCKLED BY JUST A SHORT TRIP TRYING TO KEEP CONTROL OF THIS CAR. THIS CAR IS MORE OF BOAT THEN AN AUTOMOBILE. IF I SELL THE CAR MY LOSSES WILL BE HUGE. I GOT A WHEEL ALIGNMENT, TIRES AND TOOK IT INTO THE DEALER ALL TO NO AVAIL AND THE PROBLEM IS GETTING WORSE AS THE CAR IS AGING TOO. BASICALLY THE DEALER SAID THIS IS THE WAY THE CAR IS BUILT TOO BAD SO SAD.

SNOW PREDICTED. LEFT HOME TO GO RUN ERRANDS AT 9:30 AM, CAR LOOKED SHOWROOM NEW, GOT 1/2 MILE, CAR PULLED ITSELF RIGHT (AS IT HAS PREVIOUSLY) AND BUMPED A SMALL TREE, NO DAMAGE. CAR BACKED UP TO ROADSIDE 10', CAR CUT ITSELF OFF (AS IT HAD BEFORE), WINDSHIELD WENT FROM 30 DEGREES TO 450 DEGREES IN 3 SECONDS. I LEFT MY PURSE (WITH $1200 IN IT) AND EVERYTHING AND FLED ACROSS ROAD TO SAVE MY LIFE. ASKED MAN THERE IF HE HAD A FIRE EXTINQUISHER, HE DIDN'T, ASKED ME TO STAY BECAUSE IT WAS SO COLD, AND I SAID NO, I WANTED TO CHECK MY CAR AND IN THAT 60 SECONDS, I WALKED OUT AND STOOD IN HIS DRIVEWAY AND CAR WAS TOTALLY A BLAZE. IT HAPPENED SO QUICKLY I WOULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED HAD I NOT FLED THE VEHICLE THE CAR FROM DAY 2 RARELY CRANKED, OFTEN CUT OFF GOING 5-55 MPH, PULLED OFF ROAD TO RIGHT, AND SCARED ME SPEECHLESS. LIKE IT WAS HAUNTED AND DROVE ITSELF. I ONLY HAD IT 4 MONTHS. IT WAS A DEATH TRAP AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN PUT ON THE HIGHWAY. FOR SOME REASON, I GOT ARRESTED, I WAS TOTALLY SOBER AND HAD NO MEDICATION IN MY SYSTEM. TROOPER HAD A BREATH ALYZER, NEVER USED IT. CUFFED ME VERY TIGHTLY, READ ME NO RIGHTS, AND TOOK ME TO STATION ENTRANCE. HE GRABBED MY ARM AND DREW BLOOD (ILLEGALLY) , NO PHONE CALL, FINALLY READ MY RIGHTS, AND DENIED ME SEEING MY LAWYER 3 TIMES. ILLEGALLY. FOR 3 DAYS & NIGHTS, I WAS NEVER ALLOWED A PHONE CALL OR CODE, AM DISABLED AND HAVE OSTEOPOROSIS & HAD TO SLEEP ON A 1/4" OF FLAT PLYWOOD, THOUGH MY JOINTS DON'T TOUCH, I HAVE RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME & MUST SLEEP ELEVATED, IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE. I ALSO WENT WITHOUT ANY OF MY PRESCRIPTIONS 3 DAYS. ALL BECAUSE THIS SCARY CAR BURNED TO BENT METAL WITH NO DASH, NO ENGINE OR PARTS, NO TIRES, SEATS, NOTHING. SO NOT ONLY WAS I IN SHOCK, OUT OF ANY CONTACT WITHOUT MY PRESCRIPTIONS, AND HAD TO PAY $475 BOND, THOUGH I ONLY GET $969 , THIS CAR RUINED MY LIFE OVER A YEAR AGO, AND I HAVEN'T HAD A CAR SINCE.

MY 2013 ELENTRA STARTED MAKING A TAPPING NOISE SO I TOOK IT TO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT. IT SEEMS MY 3 YEAR OLD VEHICLE NEEDS A NEW ENGINE. THAT WAS ALMOST THREE WEEKS AGO AND I AM STILL WAITING. NEITHER MY DEALER NOR HYUNDAI CAN GIVE ME AND ETA AS TO WHEN THE CAR WILL BE REPAIRED. THIS WAIT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND FROM WHAT I GATHER FROM THE SERVICE MANAGER AND THE POSTS ON THIS SITE, I AM NOT ALONE. MY RESPECT FOR HYUNDAI HAS CRATERED AND WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HYUNDAI.

I RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE USED AT A DEALERSHIP. AS I WAS DRIVING TO WORK ON THE INTERSTATE I RAN OVER A PART OF THE INTERSTATE THAT WAS POT HOLES BUT FILLED IN. AS I RAN OVER THE AREA, MY BACK END STARTED TO FISH TAIL. I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP ON 04/18/2015 AND I WAS TOLD THAT THE TIRE PRESSURE WAS WRONG AND THAT I NEEDED TO BE AWARE THAT MY CAR WAS CONSIDERED A SPORTS CAR AND IT WOULD HANDLE DIFFERENTLY THAN A REGULAR CAR AND THE BACK END BEING "LOOSE" WAS NORMAL. THE TIRE PRESSURE WAS ADJUSTED BUT I AM STILL HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM ALTHOUGH NOT AS BAD AND IT IS ONLY ON CERTAIN "BUMPS" IN THE ROAD THAT THE VEHICLE TRIES TO FISH TAIL.

I FEEL VERY UNSAFE DRIVING THE 2013 HYUNDAI ELANTRA. I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE BRAND NEW IN NOV 2013. IN JULY 2014 FOR THE FIRST TIME MY TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT WENT ON. I HAVE MY CAR SERVICED AT MY HYUNDAI DEALER REGULARLY. EVERY SERVICE I MENTION THIS PROBLEM. AS OF APRIL 1ST THE LIGHT HAS COME ON ONCE A WEEK. THE TIRES GET DANGEROUSLY LOW (22LBS). TODAY APR. 23 I BROUGHT MY CAR IN AGAIN FOR SERVICE AND RECEIVED THE SAME RUN AROUND ABOUT THE TIRES. THEY ROTATED THEM AND TOLD ME THERE WAS NO SIGNS THAT ANYTHING WAS WRONG WITH THEM. ALSO THE CAR DOES NOT SEEM SOLID WHEN DRIVING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. IT JUMPS AND SWAYS AT EVERY LITTLE BUMP. MY BRAKES WERE ALSO VIBRATING. TODAY THE TOLD ME IT WAS A PULSATION AND CHARGED ME $190 TO SUPPOSEDLY REMEDY THE PROBLEM WHICH REMAINS TO BE SEEN BECAUSE AND DOESN'T HAPPEN ALL THE TIME. NO PARTS WERE INVOLVED IN THIS FIX. THE COST WAS LABOR. THIS VEHICLE CURRENTLY HAS 27,000 MILES ON IT. I FEEL THE HYUNDAI PEOPLE HAVE VERY LITTLE REGARD FOR THEIR CONSUMERS SAFETY.
