1/23/2016 8:02 am I received a call from my wife who was driving her 2012 Hyundai Sonata on the I-95 in south florida on the way to work going approximately 70 mph, when she went to accelerate to overtake a car driving slower. All the lights on the dashboard went on and the car completely lost acceleration power and the speed dropped all the way down to 40 mph. When the speed reached 40 mph, she could not accelerate anymore and hence quickly pulled off to the side of the road (upon my request). Due to the heavy traffic, she was extremely lucky not to get into an accident. When I arrived to switch cars with her, the car started fine and accelerated appropriately. I took it straight to the Hyundai dealership who after running diagnostics came up the following: no codes stored in memory and no signs of what could have caused the car to act like this. They recommended a throttle body cleaning which is currently being completed (I am writing this from delray beach Hyundai). They stated the throttle body sticking may be the cause, but went on to admit they really had no idea as diagnostics gave them no information. After this incident, we are concerned that the car is no longer safe to drive and the fact the dealership has been unable to come up with any cause is even more of a concern.

Failure Date: 01/22/2016

While driving and turning onto an intersection the car's engine quietly turned off leaving me in the middle of oncoming traffic. I pressed the gas pedal but no reaction. I had to put the car on park and turn the key off and attempt to restart the car. This worked for now. The car has only 6664 miles on it. I have had the car for only 6 months. No pending maintenance is due for this to have happened. There are also no pending recalls due. So this is obviously a very dangerous situation and common among others on the complaint board.

"takata recall" I was driving on the interstate the other day and my car was shaking, so scary. I'm not a mechanic, but I know when something is wrong. The lights on my car gets so hot that they keep going out and the car is a drifter. I just happen to enter my VIN# in the system and I was shock. I have been driving this car not knowing my car has 4 recalls on it. I would like to get another car because at this point I do not feel safe driving my family even if they serviced it. Just hearing all the problems that wrong with this car, I do not feel safe. Who do I need to talk to about this matter?.

There is a recall on my vehicle engine. I took my car to the dealer and they inspected the engine for the defective part (engine). They said the car doesn't met the requirement for fix or replacement. However, they increased the oil amount from 4. 5 quarts to 5. 5 and change the oil dip stick without explanation when I asked why. I believe they are attempting to cover up the problem with temporary fix. Can you investigate in to this matter please. I call them several times about the situation with the dealership and the changes made without explanation. After several weeks of waiting for them to respond I call them and the costumer service person on the phone gave me an explanation, again not responded to my question directly but by someone who only answer the phone. Please help or advise!.

There was a recall on the brake switch for 2011 Sonatas. Coincidentally, I am having the issue on my car. Although I have to pay $200 out of pocket for this, I should be reimbursed as this is not coincidental and it should have been recalled on my vehicle. Now the engine is being recalled. This vehicle is terrible and unsafe!.

Received email from ntsb a few months ago, received letter from manufacturer several weeks ago. Just checked with service dept and was told they still had not received the fix yet. Looking at all other complaints on here no one has the parts yet! is it cheaper to replace the engine than replace the part? it hasn't failed yet but seems like it's almost inevitable!.
