Failure Date: 10/11/2015

In August, 2015 my engine seized on my while driving; there were no warning lights nor any warning that anything was wrong with the car. Thankfully I was driving 20 mph on a local resideintial street with no cars behind me so I was not injured. Had I been on the highway I would have been severely injured if not killed due the immediacy of the car shutting down dead in its tracks. A local Hyundai dealership installed a brand new engine and the car was returned to me. I found out a couple of weeks after receiving my car back that Hyundai was putting out a recall for all 2011/2012 Sonatas yet I found it interesting that I had not received any paperwork. On October 11, 2015 my car caught on fire while I was driving. The engine seized, I lost my brakes and my ability to steer the vehicle. Thankfully I was travelling up hill so the car stopped on its own while it sat there and burned and more thankfully, all three passengers were able to get out of the car unharmed. The initial inspection confirmed that it was an engine fire while further investigation is underway. After this incident I began researching the internet to find out if there had been other incidents to find out that there had been, that this had been going on for some time with engines seizing as well as catching fire. On Friday October 30th I received a recall notice but with no clear instructions. . . Just a "sit back and wait to be contacted with a next step". I do not feel that Hyundai is doing enough to notify owners of the potential dangers involved. The engines seizing is enough to cause a potential death not to mention the engines catching on fire. More needs to be done to remedy this in a more expeditious fashion. I am notifying every agency possible in hopes of avoiding anyone else from experiencing what I have - twice!.

The car was stuck in the middle of the street I had to push it over so that we could be safe. I had to get the car towed to the dealership. Its been two days and still they have not looked at my car and have not given me a rental car. I looked on line and I see that there is 5 recalls for my car and one is an engine issue which causes the car to stall. I do not feel safe in this car anymore and need something to be done since this is stopping me from going to work and picking up my daughter. I do not want this dangerous car anymore due to engine recall.

Failure Date: 10/03/2015

October 3rd 2015, I was driving on highway 78 west. I was in the vehicle with my 3 year old daughter. I was driving in a 2 way lane that was under construction. All off a sudden without any warning my vehicle started to decelerate on the highway. I immediately had no control and my speed was decreasing fast. I was in the left lane and in matter of 4-7 minutes my car engine was shutting down on the highway. I was almost hit by multiple trucks who continued to fly by my vehicle on the highway as I tried to find somewhere in enough time to bear off. Putting me and my 3 year old daughter in immediate danger. Needless to say I was terrified. I was finally able to pull off into the right lane and pull my vehicle into the shoulder of the highway. Since I was in an area that was under construction on this highway the shoulder space was very limited. I could feel the trucks pass my car and I was scared for my life and my daughter¿s life. I had an immediate panic attack and thought my daughter and myself was going to die. This has caused a great deal of hardship on myself and my daughter. We have been without our vehicle since this incident. Hyundai in lebanon, PA has had my vehicle since 10/3/15 and continue to give me the run around. They say they ordered a new engine , but it has not shipped to the dealer yet. This incident has created a tremendous hardship for me and my family . I continue to be at a disadvantage as I am driving a rented vehicle . Meanwhile I continue to pay for a car I have not driven for over 3 months. Your immediate assistance would be appreciated. This issue I am having with my vehicle is due to a recall campaign 132. This recall was due to the engine malfunction that Hyundai is aware of. My vehicle stalled while in motion on the highway , putting my life and my 3 year old daughter's life at risk.

Prior to recall notification, my vehicle's engine was making a very loud, "clanking" noise. , and would not accelerate. If I attempted to press on the gas pedal, the noise would become louder. While on a busy highway, the car stalled and would not start. I had to have my vehicle towed to a garage. Upon inspection, the mechanics stated the engine was beyond repair and would have to be replaced. A rebuilt engine, with 50,000 miles was placed into the vehicle. I had to obtain a rental car for a week while my car was being repaired. I have faithfully had the oil changed in my car every 3,000 miles and had taken good care of it. I contact a Hyundai representative who told me to upload my expenses incurred to the website, which I have done. He also took my information and submitted a claim for the issue. Please let me know if you have or have not received my invoices; if not, I will resubmit. A week or so after this incident, I noticed a recall was being issued for the exact problem that my vehicle experienced. Had I been aware of the recall prior to the incident, I would have taken it to a Hyundai dealership.
