Failure Date: 03/10/2017

External high pressure fuel pump - my car just continually remained in the start up for 60 seconds without actually finishing the start up. I had to turn the car off try again 3 times. Once started and in motion after about 2 minute the car began sputtered and slowed down even when mashing the gas until I could get it to a repair shop thankfully the road was not filled with other cars going the posted speed limit of 55 because I may have been in an accident.

Failure Date: 01/26/2017

I was driving at 6:20 am on the new jersey turnpike. I was in the left lane and going approximately 70 mph using the scc (Smart cruise control). All of the sudden, the lights start flashing and the car completely turns off. Since it was before sunrise, everything was black and I couldn't even see where I was driving, not to mention that the steering wheel became locked. 10 seconds later, the care came back to "life". It did that same intro with the "system check" thing as it does when the car is started from a park position- only I was on the highway going 70 mph. I have never heard of something so absurd, but I guarantee that if this was during rush hour or a busier time during the day- there would have been a major accident!.

Second time reaching out and I have gotten no kind of help or contact. I keep getting told that because I am stationed overseas that I can't be helped. I am active duty army serving overseas so you would think that the least that could get done is putting my safety as priority. The engine is on recall and I've already almost gotten into an accident because of it!!!!.

Dec 29,2016 vehicle engine completely broke down while driving 55 mph on rural highway. All lights came on at once and I was able to steer it to an intersection and pull over. Towed to local garage. Initially diagnosed as burnt out starter, however, once replaced the engine would not turn over. It was seized. The vehicle was towed to myrtle beach Hyundai on Jan 3rd where it will be tested. I believe this is related to the Hyundai recall regarding defective engines with metal shavings although I had just had the recall tests done at the dealership on Dec 16th. I have had a series of issues with the turbo ever since I bought this new car with service records at dealerships in burlington, nc as well as in shrewsbury, NJ and n. Myrtle beach. All receipts are in the vehicle right now at the dealership but I can upload at a future time.

Ecm issues. Car had ecm problem and lost power. Went into the dealer, and they said they repaired it. Didn't even make it home from the dealer and it happened again. Back to dealer and they said again it was repaired. Car had 10,000 miles on it at the time. Less than 3,000 miles later, it happened again - car completely shut off on the highway. Complete loss of power. Dealer claimed it was the same problem and "fixed" it with a software update. Now scared to drive it - considering lemon law? three problems in 6 months on a brand new car, and same problem every single time.

Failure Date: 10/19/2016

The engine just died while crossing the rfk bridge, nyc. I noticed as the car was slowing down and I pressed on the accelerator to gain speed. Nothing happened and the instrument panel was lit up with warnings. I then put it on neutral and lightly pressed on the breaks to start the engine again, nothing happened. I subsequently lost power steering and breaks. After the initial stop in a dangerous position, I was able to roll the car to a nearby construction site (off ramp to harlem river drive shoulder) behind some traffic barrels but scraped up against the concrete barrier as the car lost power steering and breaks and was hard to maneuver. I tried starting the engine again but it would not. I also opened the hood and saw smoke coming from underneath the hood. I had the car towed to a nearby dealership. I have included the service intake form in the attachments.

My car had been having electrical problems and today I made an appointment to get it repaired and 5 minutes later the vast shuts off and won't turn on anymore. The dealer sausage it's because of rodents eating my wiring. And after a little research I come to find out the wiring is made of soy-based material. Apparently rodents love to eat thru them. And now I have to replace parts because of the wiring material.
