I WAS DRIVING WEST ON U.S. HWY 80 AT ABOUT 30 MPH, AFTER PULLING OUT OF A PARKING LOT ABOUT 1 BLOCK BEFORE I LOST CONTROL OF MY 2013 HYUNDAI SANTA FE, AT AN INTERSECTION. IT MADE A SHARP RIGHT TURN WITHOUT MY HELP AT ALL. AFTER HITTING ANOTHER VEHICLE AND THEN JUMPING A LARGE CURB, I CAME TO STOP ABOUT 18" FROM A SMALL TREE. I WAS COMPLETELY TRAUMATIZED. THE RIGHT FRONT WHEEL HAD A BLOW OUT FROM THE OUTSIDE SIDE WALL OF THE TIRE. THE MECHANIC SAID IT LOOKED SLASHED. THE BIG QUESTION IS, DID THE BLOW OUT OCCUR AT THE TIME MY VEHICLE MADE THE SHARP RIGHT TURN AT THE INTERSECTION, OR DID IT OCCUR WHEN IT HIT THE CURB? I DON'T KNOW, BUT I FEEL SOMETHING HAPPENED TO CAUSE THAT SHARP RIGHT TURN IN THE FIRST PLACE. I HAD THE MECHANIC CHECK OUT THE RIGHT FRONT WHEEL AREA (AXLE, ETC). THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE VEHICLES PARTS, THAT WASN'T CAUSED BY THE ACCIDENT. THIS MAKES ME MORE CONVINCED IT HAS TO BE THE TIRE. THIS IS THE SECOND TIRE THAT HAS BLOWN OUT ON THE OUTSIDE WALL OF THE TIRE SINCE I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE IN 2013. THE OTHER BLOW OUT WAS FROM A NAIL GOING THROUGH THE OUTSIDE WALL. I ONLY HAVE 11,045 MILES ON THIS VEHICLE. TIRES ARE A KUMHO, CRUGEN, P235/55R19, 101H SL BSW OE (INFORMATION COPIED FROM A DISCOUNT TIRE RECEIPT WHEN THE FIRST BLOW OUT WAS REPLACED 5-22-15). I AM AFRAID TO GET BACK IN THIS VEHICLE BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSED COMPLETE LOSS OF CONTROL. I WILL TRADE IT IN ON A DIFFERENT VEHICLE. I'M AFRAID OF HYUNDAI'S AND KUMHO TIRES!

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

8/16/2015 - OREGON CITY, OR
WHEN DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY, VEHICLE LOST POWER AND SHUT OFF, SMELLED AND SAW SMOKE COMING FROM THE VENTS. PULLED TO SIDE OF ROAD AND OPENED HOOD TO CHECK ENGINE AND FLAMES SHOT OUT, CLOSED HOOD AND TRUCKERS RAN OVER WITH FIRE EXTINGUISHERS AND CALLED FIRE DEPARTMENT. WITHIN 5 MINUTES VEHICLE WAS TOTALLY ENGULFED AND FIRE DEPARTMENT HAD ARRIVED AND COULD ONLY PREVENT FLAMES FROM SPREADING TO SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT. VEHICLE WAS TOTALLY CONSUMED BY THIS CATASTROPHIC FIRE. CALLED HYUNDAI CORPORATE OFFICES IN CALIFORNIA TO REPORT IT AS THE VEHICLE IS UNDER WARRANTY AND WAS ASKED 'WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO?'. RECEIVED THE IMPRESSION THAT THEY WERE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS.
