Problem with Engine
Apr 29, 2013 - Menifee, CA - Engine
MY 2013 HYUNDAI VELOSTER ALMOST STALLED AT LEAST 3 TIMES DURING THE PAST 2 MONTHS. WHETHER I'M GOING UP A SLIGHT INCLINE (IN CALIFORNIA) OR IF ACCELERATING AFTER A STOP. I'VE RECENTLY NOTICED THAT WHEN THE AIR CONDITIONER AND RADIO IS ON IT SOMETIMES WILL SPUTTER AND DROP RPMS AND NEARLY STALLS. I'VE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER AND EXPLAINED IT TO THEM. THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT CLAIMED THEY COULDN'T DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM. HELL IT'S HAPPENED TO ME SEVERAL TIMES. THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECALL DUE TO ALL OF THE ONLINE SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ABOUT VELOSTER STALLS!!!! NHTSA PLEASE LOOK INTO ALL OF THE COMPLAINTS!

WHILE TRAVELING DOWN THE ROAD AT APPROXIMATELY 50 MPH THE CRANK PULLEY FELL OFF THE MOTOR. THIS PREVENTS THE ALTERNATOR, WATER PUMP AND AC COMPRESSOR FROM FUNCTIONING AS THEY ARE BELT DRIVEN. WITH THE ALTERNATOR NOT FUNCTIONING THE BATTER WILL BE DRAINED TO THE POINT OF DEAD (DEPENDING ON WHAT ACCESSORIES ARE ON) AND WITH THE WATER PUMP NOT FUNCTIONING THE CAR WILL ALMOST IMMEDIATELY OVERHEAT LEAVING THE VEHICLE STRANDED.
