Failure Date: 06/30/2003

I bought a brand new Hyundai Elantra on 5-8-03 and on 6-30-03 and again on 7-30-03 I have had to take the car back to the dealer to have service for the same problem, which I found out this last service call, had been a known problem with that particular car in that yr of model, and no one has a fix for the problem yet. The dealer I purchased the car from made no attempt to inform me of this problem before I purchased it, and the first dealer I took it to did not make any attempt to inform me of this known problem either. I feel that I should have been told, being that it is a major problem, there is a vaper lock problem, which causes the car to shut down while in the middle of driving at unpredictable times. It is very unsafe for me to drive it this way, being that at any given time, the car loses the ability to accelerate, and therefore offers a very high chance of me getting involved in an accident, where I do not have the driving power to move my car out of the way of on coming traffic. I am very , very upset about this, and as of yet, the only thing the dealer service department has told me is, " it is a problem that our company is working on finding a fix for, but as of yet, there is no cure for this problem". That being the case, I do not feel I should have to keep this car. I do not feel safe driving in it alone, let alone aking my 9yr old daughter, and 5yr and 4 yr old sons into this car with me at all.
