Failure Date: 12/08/2017

While driving on a freeway at approximately 70mph, my Sonata stopped accelerating. I had to pull off the road in the middle of traffic as my car was rapidly decelerating. I turned off the ignition, and after letting it set for a few minutes, I was able to start up again and proceed without trouble. This has happened three times in since, both on a freeway and once on a side street. I am on my way to my dealer today to check this out. Also, I have checked the internet, and found that this is a common occurrence among these models.

My 2012 Hyundai Sonata engine has seize after researching came across a sight that requested my VIN # and advised me that there was a recall on 2011 and 2012. Upon entering my VIN it stated your car has been affected. And direct me to call a dealer for inspection. The car was towed to the doral Hyundai dealer and inspected the put in a claim and I was denied . The reason was I have a rebuilt title however the customer relation said that that didnt matter it was because it was previously inspected in 2015. For me a recall is a recall which a safety issue which has to be granted by law and the second customer relation rep agreed after he research is story I was denied because my title is branded. . . . 3 different storyies sombody please help Hyundai's number for this recall is 132; owners may also refer to NHTSA campaign number 15v568000.

Sudden unintentional acceleration on a highway going approximately 45 mph. Saw brake lights on vehicles and started braking. Suddenly, my vehicle sped up, catching up to the vehicle ahead of me. The front of the car was bobbing up and down, but not stopping the vehicle. I do not know how fast I was going when I finally hit the other vehicle. We both got out of our vehicles and to my surprise, there was no damage on either vehicle. (miracle) there was no police or tow trucks called. I was able to get my car home safely. My car will probably be sold by the time you read this. Also, there were no injuries. I was so nervous I did not know what kind of vehicle I hit or if there were other passengers.

While driving down the street, the car started slowing down with jerking and shaking like motions which was very distracting and caused me to become afraid in the moving traffic. It was obvious that something was going wrong. Then I glanced at temperature gauge and noticed it was heating up in the red and ran hot. Now it won't run.

After starting the car on the street I pulled the car into the driveway to wash it. After about an hour, I tried to start the car to move it out of the driveway. It would no longer start. Turns out the starter had burned out. Took the car to the shop. They stated that the even after replacing the starter, the starter continues to try to start the car while the car is running. This will cause the starter to burn out. I have had to replace the starter with 69k miles on the car and now have been warned that there is an electrical problem that will burnout the new starter unless I get it fixed.

I went for an oil change, and they listened to my engine for the engine recall. I told the service department that it was the noisiest starting car I have ever owned. I believe they out an oil additive in it to quiet my engine before testing it to try to avoid replacing the engine. It is suddenly the quietest starting car I have ever owned. This upsets me greatly, as I believe they are not honoring the engine recall by using an engine quieting additive. I have been working on cars for over 40 years. I am very jn happy that this is happening.

Took car to dealership for engine recall check in 2016, was told my car was fine only to have the engine seize 12 months later while driving. Engine was replaced by northtowne Hyundai in kc, mo and car was returned after 7 weeks. Within a few days of driving with the new engine I heard a distinct whining at about 2500 rpm and noticed a steady leak due to spots on my driveway. I returned the car to the dealership who said that the leak was from the transmission and that they have no liability since the engine replacement did not cause them to have to actually touch the transmission since the two systems are completely independent of one another. Corporate Hyundai says that the powertrain (I. E. Transmission) is not covered under their extended 120,000 mile warranty and the cost of the repair is going to be an out of pocket expense to me.

We were driving to hesperia in the pouring rain just passing the cajon pass on the freeway when we heard a knocking coming from the engine & moved our way over to the slow lane & made our way off the freeway. Upon exiting the engine completely died while we were driving & would not restart. We luckily made our way over to the shoulder to pull over & had to wait over 2 hours for a tow truck to tow us 62 miles home.

I never received the notice on my car recall number 123. I have taken my car in for all recalls I have received and I was never told that the engine could fail because of metallic debris wasn't removed from the crankshaft. My car is in the shop because the motor is locked. It just stopped and then would not move . Southern states Hyundai in raleigh is where I have taken my car for all recalls for four years. They knew about this defect in 1915, but have never informed me or done the work required by the recall. My car was made in alabama and the Hyundai web site confirms that my car should have been covered under this recall. Southern states is saying they have no recall for my car but one small thing that needs to be done. They don't want to fix my car even though it is there fault that the recall work has never been done.

Air intake hose from the air filter box to the turbocharger inlet - 2. 0 turbo engine - melted and broke. Reduced power and potentially foreign debris can enter the turbocharger and damage it, reducing power even further. Apparently many owners with the 2. 0 turbo engine have experienced the same issue. I went to the local dealership this morning and they told me it could be a month before the back ordered part arrives. I was not offered alternative transportation.
