The contact owns a 2013 Hyundai Sonata. While the vehicle was undergoing a regular oil change at jiffy lube in rosberg, oregon, the mechanic noticed a lot of metal shavings in the oil pan. The mechanic showed the contact the oil pan and gave her the option of having the oil system flushed with fake oil. The contact then took the vehicle to butler Hyundai in medford, oregon for diagnostic testing. The dealer stated that the oil was clean and there were no traces of metal shavings; therefore, there was no need to repair the vehicle per NHTSA campaign number: 17v226000 (engine). The contact received notification for the recall on 4/14/17. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 126,000.

Engine seizing up driving back from visiting a friend in the next town. I lost engine power on a straight section of the road and with that power steering ability was lost as well. It was on a major highway but was grateful it didn't happen with a lot of vehicles on the road. I coasted to a stop along side the road (near an access road (a relatively dangerous place to park) but at the best place I could find with only a few seconds to make a decision. I did call the local police who came to aid me in maintaining a safe zone for me and my car. My local dealer I bought the car from seem to not be in much of a hurry to get my car fixed. I have called or texted back to the dealer over the last 9 days and have received the same message - we are waiting for Hyundai to authorize repair. I have also called a Hyundai customer care center and they basically said you will just have to wait. How long is too long to go without your vehicle? I need mine to get to work, to get to the store, etc. A car is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity.

The engine hesitates and we took it to the Hyundai dealer for the recall #162 for problems with the engine. They checked the engine with a stethoscope and found no debris according to the technician. But according to the lady in the service department she stated that the problem has been seen in engines with over 100,000 miles and that is why the warranty has been extended to 120,000 miles. This make me very uneasy because it is makes me feel that she is saying that it is still going to happen but not until the engine has over 100,000 miles. So it is not a matter of "if" just a matter of "when" and I do not think that it is fair that I may be at risk of being in an accident as well as my children in the future. I think that it should be remedied even though there is no debris at this time. What can I do to have this rechecked?.

Emissions warning had been on for a short time. 20 minutes after a big puff of smoke, the car died and the mechanic says the motor is locked and it will need a new engine. Very little warning or poor car performance.

When I took my 2011 Sonata in for the motor recall, I was told my motor was ok. On July 11, 2017 my 2011 Sonata limited suddenly stopped running while driving about 55 mph and stranded me in the middle of a busy four lane highway. I had 146 thousand on the odometer when this happened. As it was out of warranty, I had it towed to my regular mechanic. A few days later he informed me the motor completely seized. How can this be as Hyundai assured me my motor was ok and I change the oil every five thousand miles with pure synthetic? I think it is one hell of a coincidence that you had a recall on that motor, you found mine to be ok, and then it suffers a complete and absolute failure. I paid my mechanic $4602. 05 to replace the motor with a used motor that has 48 thousand miles on it, as I could not afford a new car. This is my last Hyundai or kia.

While driving, my engine light came on and I got an alert that there was an issue with the engine control module. I made an appointment ASAP but continued to drive the car until my appointment in 4 days. Later on that day, I was I fully stopped iat a flashing yellow light, then attempted to cross over a lane of traffic. The car moved but would not accelerate past 12 mph - almost causing me to be hit by oncoming traffic. I had to turn my hazard lights on and coast until I could pull over. I called Hyundai and they expedited my appointment but claimed there are no active recalls. However the technician said that there is a "campaign" and that he replaced the part. Their website says this: Sonata 2. 4l ecm update & vcm (16-01-064) I almost got hit by oncoming traffic because of this ecm issue and I think that Hyundai is putting people in danger by downplaying the seriousness of this issue. It should be a recall - not a "campaign" and they should be required to notify car owners to get this issue resolved ASAP. It could be a matter of life and death.

I was notified of the NHTSA recall number 17v226000 a few months. I believe that the issue with the engine should be addressed as quickly as possible since many of the affected vehicles are being driving in the nation's road. The recall was sent out in March 31, 2017 and so far there has been no remedy. The vehicle owners are entitled to a remedy to prevent any future damage to the engine.

While driving to work this morning, brand new Hyundai Sonata with 980 miles shut down and turned itself off when I made a stop at a red light. I was lucky I wasn't moving fast on a highway when it happened and didn't get into an accident, but it's totally unacceptable for a brand new car to shut down like this.

Driving in heavy highway traffic in the high speed lane of a six lane highway my engine died. No warning of any sort preceded the failure. I was fortunate to safely navigate across the other travel lanes in a vehicle with no power. .

I have spoken to the dealer multiple times regarding manufacturer recall number162. The dealer's only response is that they have no idea how to correct the problem, so I have to wait. Considering that this issue may cause the engine to seize at any time, I don't find this to be acceptable.

I have a 2013 Hyundai, VIN: 5npec4ac6dh591909, that had a recall on the engine for possibility of seizing up. It just so happened that it actually happened last week (Thursday, June 8, 2017). I had the car towed to antwerpen Hyundai, 6440 baltimore national pike, catonsville, MD 21228 where I have been having the car serviced. They have been trying to get a resolution from Hyundai since that time but have not had success. I do not have transportation to get to work, my children to their appointed places, etc and no one has authorized me a rental car or loaner car. I�m getting very distraught at this time due to lack of concern for my well being when the car�s problem is clearly a problem with manufacturing as the car only has 43,000 miles on it as well.

While traveling on a highway at approx. 65mph with other vehicles in front of and behind me, all of the indicator lights on my 2012 Hyundai Sonata lit up and the engine siezed. The rpm dial indicated "0" and I had to coast to a safe place to exit the highway. The engine was not running, so I attempted to start it, resulting in smoke coming out from under the hood of the car. Had to have the car towed to repair shop and was told the engine was completely seized. I am the only owner of the car and have maintained service properly including having it inspected when recalls were received. I am now getting the run around from Hyundai as they say it is no longer covered under warranty. My financing has not even come to an end, but the engine did and I do not find that acceptable. Especially since learning Hyundai has known of a problem with this engine.
