This issue involves the combustion of a plastic fuel pump power supply connector inside the fuel tank of a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. A pin on the outer connector was also burnt. The pump actually still works - it only quit because the connectors burnt - including the connector inside the tank to the point that an electrical connection could not be made. If the fuel pump motor wore out after several thousand miles (usually well over 100k in most cars - not 68k) then I may understand an argument for the Hyundai service manager's contention that this is "normal wear". I believe that a connector burning inside a fuel tank is not "normal wear" and is also likely to be a safety hazard. Hyundai motors and the dealership have both been notified of my concerns and they show no indication of doing anything to correct it other than to replace the pump at my expense - undoubtedly with one of the same design. I took the old pump from their shop and I am keeping it for future evidence. The incident occurred when trying to re-start the vehicle after it had been parked. I don't plan on keeping the vehicle for another 68k miles because I'm concerned that we may need an undertaker instead of a tow truck the next time.
